One of the most beautiful things you will encounter in Central Florida is the sunsets, sunrises and storm clouds of the skies. Below are a few of the photos I took when we lived there in 2003 that celebrate the skies of Central Florida.
Another event our family attended in 2003 while living in Central Florida was the fun Strawberry Festival in Plant City [ flstrawberryfestival.com ]. Similar to a State Fair there were rides, concerts (we saw Ricky Skaggs the year we attended) and of course, the required food that most of us secretly crave. It was a good time for all!
Of course Disney isn’t the only game in town in Orlando – especially these days. Back when we lived there in 2003 the primary competition was Universal Studios. We lived less than 10 miles from Disney World though so we only actually made it to City Walk at Universal once – for our wedding anniversary : )
Here are a few photos from that visit.
A key factor in the success of any photography business is the ability to produce technically sound images that stand out and differentiate your style from that of other photographers.

A few photos from a quick trip my family made to St. Petersburg, Florida when we lived in central Florida in 2003.

I don’t know if this community still holds the event, I believe this was their first year, but I know the band we fell in love with there still travels and performs. Their name is “The Empty Hats” and you can learn more about them at their website: emptyhats.com Check them out!!
Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse [ponceinlet.org] is Florida’s tallest lighthouse (second tallest in the country) and is a designated National Historic Landmark. It’s located close to Daytona Beach and Orlando so you should consider adding it to your itinerary when you visit these locations.
My photo gallery includes pictures of the lighthouse, the famous Fresnel Lenses and the grounds which include a wonderful little museum.
On March 4th, 1857, while the Capitol building was still under construction, James Buchanan was sworn in as the 15th President of the United States of America. The 1850s were a significant period in photography. The wet collodion process was invented in 1851. It gave photographers the ability to make direct contact prints from glass negatives. […]
