Wish You Were Here: Yoga Photos From The Sunshine State
I would have never imagined that Florida was going to be one of the more prolific photo expeditions of my career. I decided to make the trip from Los Angeles to Miami to see my 85-year-old uncle, who had been in a coma late last year. When he woke up, I told him I was coming to see him.
When I announced I'd be in Miami booking a few shoots and received requests from all over the sunshine state, I decided to turn it into a tour.
45 shoots later and some quality time shared with my Uncle Robert (who is doing great!), here is what happened along the magical Atlantic and Gulf coast.
