First of all, I promise to spare you from any cheesey third person introduction, supposedly written by someone else, detailing how I was magically guided to photography by cosmic voices, or the story of my first camera. Quite simply, I have a photographic degree in portraiture and editorial photography and I'm happily obsessed with this stuff. I've been shooting weddings in Key West since 1996 at just about every possible location, including boats, hotels, sandbars, museums and the occasional church. I once even shot a few wedding ceremony photos in the cemetery, and yes, it was kinda creepy. A spin through my website will show a fraction of my library of images from the Florida Keys and Cuba.

Speaking of weddings, my style is clearly in the photojournalistic vein, which, on a good day, means far fewer posed shots and a more candid feel to the finished product. Lots of people drop the 'photojournalist' word, which is easy to do, but as you can see from most forms of editorial, or 'candid' photography, this does not translate into a bunch of photos of people staring at a camera.

I've been living in Key West since 1996 and have been a working photojournalist with the Key West Citizen newspaper since 1997. I also shoot regularly for the Associated Press with freelance assignments from Havana to Grand Bahama. After moving here from Ohio, I quickly fell in love with this place. It's easy to do.

A good amount of the Key West stuff is included in my 160-page, hardcover photography book titled Key West Photo Safari and in my 'Key West and the Florida Keys' wall calendars which feature images from Key Largo to Key West. I also produce a Jimmy Buffett calendar which is available through MargaritavilleKeyWest.com.

As for Photoshop, yes, I use it. However, you will not see impossible scenes with 'natural' light coming from two directions or elements of two or more photos appearing in one image. That ain't photography, folks, that's graphic design.

I hope you like what you see here, because I've certainly enjoyed creating this stuff.
My website is hosted by Zenfolio and it has become incredibly easy to sell prints cheaply. (Hint, hint.)

I'll also be able to add stuff on the fly, so check back often, buy some books, a calendar or ten or perhaps a few prints for Mom.

Have a great day,

Rob O.
