For the April Issue of Portfolio Magazine, a lifestyles, interest, and leisure magazine based out of Naples, Florida, my of the Mykka River has been featured on the front cover. Further, my latest series, ‘Florida 67‘ has been presented on a ten page spread, along with my photo biography. Thanks to Bill Hemmer, the head publisher of Portfolio Magazine, for working on the layout and approaching me for publication.
The summer of 2012 was a prolific shooting season in my continuation of the Florida 67 Series, but with a focus on panoramic images and water systems. I covered alot of ground, traveling a cumulative 30 days just photographing the Florida coasts, rivers, and wilderness. The rest of my time I’ve spent developing and scanning nearly 80 rolls of 120 film, most of which spun through my recently acquired Horseman SW612, which produces nice 6x12cm negatives (and slides).
For the past year, I’ve meant to paddle Fisheating Creek on several occasions, but it was always out of the way in whatever direction I was heading, or sometimes I was too exhausted or sunburnt at the end of a trip. The cool, spring fed river is known as a premiere paddle adventure to nature enthusiasts and a select group of elite photographers, but not well known to the general public.
