The Boca Experience Part 2: Wild Florida

It’s official – you can stop holding your breath now.  The long-awaited second post from our corporate shoot in Boca Raton is officially here.  This time, we’re sharing some of our favorite photos from the Florida Everglades and surrounding areas.  Unlike a swamp, the Everglades are actually shallow, slow moving rivers of water that meander from headwaters in northern Florida to the open water surrounding the southern tip of the peninsula.   This amazing location is home to a wide variety of wildlife, from alligators and crocodiles, to wading birds, panthers and black bears.

Above is a black necked stilt, one of the many species of birds that calls the Everglades home.  At the turn of the 20th century, the area was home to flocks of birds numbering in the millions.  It was not uncommon for a flock to take flight and blot out the sun, stretching for as far as the eye could see.  But in the 1920s, the once plentiful birds were nearly hunted to extinction because of the fashion of the day – large, gaudy hats decorated with profuse numbers of bird feathers.  Thankfully, the wildlife has been making a healthy comeback over the past 60 or so years, and though not what it once was, the Everglades are still an amazing place to visit.

Anyway, here are several of our favorite photos from the shoot – as always, downloadable as HD desktop wallpaper.  Enjoy!

Capturing History: The Boca Raton Resort & Club

We recently had the pleasure of shooting the Boca Raton Resort and Club for one of our commercial clients.  This 1000+ room resort began its life during the Florida Land Boom as the Cloister Inn, built in 1926 as the most expensive 100 room hotel in the world.  Since then, the hotel has gradually, though steadily grown into one of the top resorts in Florida.  With 7 swimming pools, two professional golf courses, eleven restaurants, and hundreds of feet of ocean-front property, its no wonder!

Also – neat fact:  During WWII the resort played an essential role as a barracks housing soldiers for nearby Boca Raton Army Air Force Base. The troops affectionately called it “the most elegant barracks in history”.

Anyway, here are several of our favorite photos from the shoot – as always, downloadable as HD desktop wallpaper.  Enjoy!
