I love photography, there is no question about that. There is something about documenting the world passing you by. Change is constant and without us documenting life itself, we would forget what the past looked like. Photographers are so important in this world for that reason alone.
It is the photos from the past that make our present and our future that much better.
As simple as this lifeguard tower might seem to someone, it is part of my history, and one day 30-40 years from now, I will look at this photos and remember how different times were.
I love the Everglades, I mean I really, really like going out there. However it is summer, and that means wet season, and unfortunately the mosquitos are insane out there, almost unbearable.
People always ask me when the best time to go to the Everglades is, and my answer is always the same. If you want to get really good photos go there in the summer time. If you want to enjoy the Everglades, go there in the winter time.
No mater what time of the year you go, one thing is for sure, you will be glad you did. The swamp will change you, it is a beautiful place, something you only read in good books…

Here is a shoot I did for the Miami Open. I had to get a very specific shot overlooking the stadium. You can see what it took to take this shot and the exact shot at the end of the video. During our flight I also shot some artistic shots you can see here. Let me tell you, there is nothing like flying and shooting from a helicopter.
