As a tourism and lifestyle photographer my job is to create imagery to make NJ look its best. Much of what draws folks to the Garden State starts with great photos of our pristine beaches, world-famous boardwalks and the lively nightlife in the coastal resort towns.
Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey hard and transitioning from emergency relief to recovery and rebuilding is going to be nothing short of epic. The dramatic aerial photos of the coastline devastation is heartbreaking to look at.
Many of the iconic amusement parks, arcades, restaurants, boardwalks, and homes I’ve photographed over the years are either damaged or completely destroyed. It will take time, but better days are ahead.
Sailing the calm summer ocean and back bays, feeling the “sugar sand” between your toes, attending kite-flying festivals, and being thrilled on one of the many amusement pier rides will return.
