Over 300 high-resolution images serve as a visual–guide to locations enjoyed by visitors of all ages, and equally by photographers and their non-photographer friends. Many of the excursions offer complimentary or low cost admission – with most “tourist trap” experiences intentionally absent from the guide. Each location is hyperlinked to a map page with corresponding reviews embedded in the hyperlinks. Hidden gem restaurants, attractions, and accommodations are hyperlinked to online websites – these local favorites are places we’ve enjoyed on past trips and frequent when in the area. Additionally, photography terms and techniques are hyperlinked to online resources to help you capture postcard worthy locations.

We think you’ll agree, Miami and the Florida Keys, isn’t a typical tourist or travel photography book, rather a guide to over fifty locations that offer postcard worthy experiences for tourist, residents, and traveling photographers.
