Part 2 in our blog series honoring the unique, inspiring and often incredible work of our clients.
Today, we wanted to take a few moments to brag on the goods folks of the Amelia Island CVB. As you can imagine, there have been few industries hit harder than the men and women supporting tourism and conventions – and these are two of the biggest economic drivers on Amelia Island. Yet despite the hardships, and against the odds, our friends at the CVB have always gone above and beyond to support the businesses and events that make Amelia Island so very special. Though their staff is small, the group has pulled off some amazing things over the years, and its been our great pleasure to be small part of the fun! The island regularly appears on the top of desirable travel destinations, both nationally and internationally, a true testament to the hard work of the CVB.
Fine Art Photographs of Hurricane Dorian’s Glancing Impact on Florida’s First Coast
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 utter destruction and climbing death toll left in the wake of the storm’s lingering 185mph sustained winds over the Bahamas is just starting to be known, and our heart goes out to those on the islands, and the countless families awaiting news about their loved ones. Yet despite all of the horror, there is even in such darkness a beauty in the storm – an eerie, sober sort of melancholy beauty – but beauty all the same.
Exploring Sarasota Classic Car Museum & Vintage Motors
This past week, we had the pleasure of heading down to Sarasota to photograph a conference for our friends at Firebirds Wood Fire Grill. I had a few hours of down time, and as providence would have it, I stumbled upon an automotive gem hidden a few hundred feet from my hotel. The gem, Sarasota Classic Car Museum, is the second oldest continuously running car museum in the United States, getting its start in 1953 as the century’s send Florida Land Boom was well under way.
A long time ago on an island not so far away, we had the great pleasure of putting together some Star Wars inspired images for our friends on Amelia Island. Here’s some of our favorites. Go to our May the Fourth blog Gallery to see and share them all!
A Firsthand Account of Amelia Island’s Historic Shrimping Industry
Over the past decade, we’ve had the great pleasure of capturing the beautiful and diverse stories of Amelia Island, FL for their Visitor’s Bureau. Many of those stories I’ll never forget, and this month’s adventure is definitely one of those memories that will linger for years to come.
As it is with any fishing story, the adventure began at daybreak as we gathered on the northern tip of Amelia Island to meet up with Captain Wilson and his historic wooden shrimp boat, Three Cees’s. Though the coast to both our north and south was largely clouded over, we were treated to a stunning sunrise over the marshy interior of the island.
