Anthony J Rayburn Miami architecture and resort photographers

"Anthony J Rayburn is a Franco-American born in California and raised in South Florida. Growing up with family in the Caribbean, the Americas, Europe, and North Africa, he always found himself most inspired by the commonalities and colours across cultures. These are always the stories that connect us as humans, and this has formed the foundation for his body of work today, focusing on the places, spaces, and faces of the tourism and hospitality industries.

His first assignment presented itself after high school - documenting and performing the reconnaissance for an off-road classic car rally in Morocco. After spending a few months in the Sahara living out of a Toyota Prado, he returned home to the States to attend university and pursue a career in international business and trade. After a few years in the industry and a lack of story in his life, he took a leap of faith and decided to chase the stories of the world.

Bilingual in English and French, he is based in South Florida but is no stranger to travel for most of his assignments."
