The Miami Beach Experience
Spectacular white sandy beaches as far as the eye can see with hundreds of colorful umbrellas perfectly aligned like a candy shop, as swimsuit models lay in the hot sun. Turquoise blue water with gleaming Luxury resorts lining the entire coastline. Daytime pool parties packed full of beautiful people and vacationers ready to party and enjoy life to the fullest. Miami Beach is the eternal playground for people around the world.
Artistically Colorful lifeguard towers stand out like masterpieces over the blank canvas of these white sandy beaches. The warm water invites you in with a calm lapping of rolling waves. Celebrities and top models are seen daily as they relax in the beautiful warm water as paparazzi bolt up and down the beach boardwalk on bicycles looking for a glimpse.
I travel to Miami Beach each year to photograph Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Models, relax in world class resorts, enjoy the insane night life, and depart on Caribbean cruises. There is something about this unique place that keeps me and millions of visitors from around the world coming back year after year.
Walking along Ocean Drive will give you the sense of this beach town’s atmosphere of glitz and glam. Endless delicious outdoor restaurants, fabulous shopping along Lincoln Boulevard complete with all of the top designers.
The pool parties are some of the hottest experiences happening in Miami Beach. We photographed this editorial with top swimsuit models at Hyde Beach at the SLS South Beach. By far the best pool party, the SLS goes off the wall with champagne spraying in all directions, giant flamingos and unicorns with swimsuit models hanging off of them, with steam spraying over the pool as some of the hottest DJ’s spin the hottest tracks. Wild and over the top, this pool party is one not to miss each weekend. The Fontainebleau, Mondrian, Delano and 1 Hotel South each have incredible weekend pool party experiences with a high end Vegas feel. During the Ultra Music Festival
As day turns to night, Miami Beach heats up into one of the top night club scenes in the world. LIV goes wild, as Story, Space sand Basement light up the night with top DJ’s all night until the morning. E11even is where the hottest people head to as the after party club, as its open 24 hours and gets crazier than any other club in Miami.
Whether you are seeking a relaxing getaway or want to party until the sun comes up, Miami Beach should be at the top of your list. To see video and more spectacular images from our production at the SLS South Beach, checkout our Instagram @TravelToEarth and www.PhotographyWorkshopSeries.com
