VIRTUOSO LIFE | JAMAICA

Back in January I went to Jamaica (yes, I know, it was terrible escaping the winter doldrums) to shoot a cover and feature for Virtuoso Life. I’ve been lucky enough to visit Jamaica several times while on assignment and this time was special because I got to road trip around and see some new spots like Treasure Beach, on the southern shore. The soundtrack was everything from choral musical spilling out of churches to dancehall blasting out of speakers strapped to car rooftops. The island nation never ceases to amaze me with its clear sense of identity and rich culture! Now, the issue is finally out and these are some of my favorite outtakes.

    Can’t have too much Red Stripe. A delightful return visit to Jamaica through your images. Thank you. Does’t look like a lot has changed since my last time.
