Saddle Cay Sandbar, Exuma Cays, Bahamas Islands


A friend photographer who worked on a Bahamas Out Island Tourism shoot, told me about a small pristine sandbar in the Exuma Cays that only surfaced at low tide. We described it to our boat Captain and he took us there on the right tide. Here's one of our first images.

Mermaid Sydney Raye Smith is one of those people who can do just about anything. Here she's almost "as one" with one of the hundreds of whale sharks feeding off Isla Mujeres, Mexico earlier this month.

Cello and the Red Dress


This red dress has played a part in a few images and now we combine it with a stringed instrument in the studio. When all the stars align making a picture like this, it can take my breath away.

White Walls of Circles, Red Hair and Tattoo


Was working with some extremely talented people on a small island off the Mexican Yucatan Peninsula last week. We were shooting mermaids interacting with whale sharks and a variety of other things. I found this repetition of white walls with round holes near a hotel on the beach.

Bay of Pigs - Exuma Cays - Bahamas Islands


Moments of hilarity during the Mermaid Portfolio Workshop last month was our stop at the "Bay of Pigs" and swimming with a half dozen of them. See our boat in the background. Okay, just kidding (about the boat).
