Yes, you caught us blushing. Thank you Joe Guidry, for the great article on Rich and I. Joe is a Tampa native, who write a blog for The Florida Aquarium. He worked for The Tampa Tribune Company for more than 40 years.
Oops, we did it again. We are excited to partner with The Florida Aquarium in downtown Tampa for a gallery showing of our most recent work. We were delighted to contribute to both a new showing in the Vinik Reception Hall, but also to shoot the "Aquarium Ambassadors" series for the Aquarium's office space & contribute to the Aquarium's newest exhibit, "Waves of Wonder". There is no better way to spend the day then with your family and friends at The Florida Aquarium - Downtown Tampa.
