Wandering in the Florida Keys for The Daily

I was sent on assignment for the now defunct online newspaper “The Daily” to the Keys last year, too bad they are not longer around, I really liked their articles and content… but seems that they didn’t have enough subscribers to keep on going.

So they gave me a shot list and sent me 2 days to the Florida Keys to make photographs for their Travel Saturday section, it was a fun experience, needed to cover 18 locations in 2 days, beaches, restaurants, street and iconic locations, I had a blast but needed to rush, with 18 locations to shoot in 2 days and all the way from Key Largo to Key West there was no other option than go in and out quick from every place.

The contract had a one year embargo on the photos, meaning I couldn’t use them for one year, so now that the period is over I can post them. Here are the ones I liked the most, some of them didn’t make it, some others were published, but I just like more the ones I am posting here.  If you are interested to see the final piece and the photos they ran just click here to download the PDF. Aerial shot from the cover and underwater photos are not mine, just the rest of them.
