I have never really thought of myself as a visual person but over the years I’ve discovered that I love light. The way some people exude it. The way some people capture it. I share beautiful pictures on my instagram account and I am often blown away not only by the subject (as gorgeous as the people and items are) but the ways in which they have been captured. I love a good story and some photographers are the best at visualizing things that words are often unable to explain. In an era where everyone has access to a camera, I think it’s important to highlight those who have a passion for capturing souls and telling their stories in their best light.
In no particular order and by no means an exhaustive list (it will be updated regularly even after the initial post), these are the Caribbean photographers you need to have on your radar.
