Hurricane Dorian - Jacksonville Beach Pier Waves

I don’t have to tell you, Hurricanes are a fierce force of nature – and Hurricane Dorian has proven to be one of the fiercest Atlantic storms since records began.

The Wonderful World of White Oak

We recently had the opportunity to shoot another event with our friends at the enchanted White Oak Conservation Center.  Hidden away on the dirt roads of North Florida, located along the meandering St Marys River, this great location has a collection of mostly African endangered and threatened species.  From rhinos and cheetahs to giraffe and zebra – this open plan conservation center makes you feel half a world away.

This time, our group had the pleasure of seeing many of the species White Oak houses, fed the giraffe, and even interacted with a few of the young cheetahs.  Certainly a memorable experience!  The outing concluded with a great tour of the Big Game Room – filled with amazing artifacts from history, both ancient and modern – and was capped by a gourmet dinner in the Great Hall.  Young and not so young alike had some fun at the vintage bowling alley, antique pool tables and all the other wonderful amenities found at White Oak.  Below are some of our favorite photos – enjoy!

Fun Under the Amelia Sun – Part 2

Last week we had the privilege of spending several days at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island with a great commercial client.  The resort not only provided some wonderful meals and amazing service, but they also coordinated a selection of great activities.  In this post, I’ve highlighted a trip to the enchanted White Oak Conservation Center, full of mostly African endangered and threatened species.  This tour included the opportunity to watch the Cheetahs run, interact with two species of rhino, and feed a family of giraffe.  Certainly a memorable experiencing!

The exciting day concluded with a trip the the Ritz’s own AAA 5-diamond rated SALT restaurant, topped off with a fantastic beachfront fireworks display.  Enjoy the photos!
