Photographer Captain Kimo shares his inspiration and unique approach to capturing the beauty of the Treasure Coast. Hear what he has to say…Florida’s history is dotted with artists who have brought their vision of the state to life, from The Highwaymen to Clyde Butcher. Among those ranks is Kim Seng, aka Captain Kimo. Seng has made a name for himself in Florida’s art scene with his specialization in HDR landscape photography. As a regular Jack-of-all-trades, Seng didn’t start off as a landscape photographer. “When I started CaptainKimo.com in 2008 it was a fishing blog… I took photos of all the fish I caught as well as the local area that I was fishing at.” After a while, he realized that he liked the landscape shots more than the photos that focused on his catches. After some consideration, he traded his pole for a camera and fully pursued landscape photography.Seng’s decision was a huge benefit to Florida’s art scene. His photos of landmarks such as the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and scenes such as the sun rising over rivers and preserves have stuck out in the minds of many for years to come. Even so, Seng has his own tricks for standing out in a crowd. “Being a landscape photographer its hard to come up with a different photograph but if you have a rare event, like a Super Bloodmoon and Lunar Eclipse it’s hard for someone to get a similar photo.”The beauty of the beaches, the majesty of the marshes, and the presence that the forests have, create solid images in the minds of viewers as to what Florida is, as well as making an impression on Seng. “My inspiration is just being present at the location for the shoot. Every day produces a different light so I am always excited to see what the sunset or sunrise will bring… there is nothing more satisfying to me than seeing an absolutely gorgeous sunrise/sunset that fills the sky with color.”The bright colors and dramatic landscapes that shine throughout Seng’s work aren’t photo manipulation, and for many Floridians, they’re part of their lives. Residents of the Sunshine State wake up to rivers teeming with life, blue skies over beaches, and sunsets that streak the sky red, orange, and purple.The Treasure Coast is one of Florida’s most photogenic areas. Artists from all over come to snap pictures of its wildlife and jaw dropping views. It’s why Rivella is putting the spotlight on local photographers that can capture its beauty. Through their lenses, you can see a snapshot of what the Rivella’s backyard is like.This gated community by GroundStone Homes rests on the edge of the St Lucie River where it meets the North Fork. Only twenty minutes from Jupiter and five minutes from the oceanfront, residents have easy access to all of the activities that come along with waterfront living, such as kayaking, fishing, and paddle boarding – not to mention some stunning views. Community amenities include a pool and clubhouse, tennis, and walking trails meandering throughout the neighborhood, so residents can connect with nature. Your new home will be ideally located just a short drive to some of the area’s best golf, beaches and entertainment as well as dozens of historic sites, parks and museums where you’ll learn about the area’s rich history.Homes at Rivella will range in size from 2 to 6 bedrooms, and all homes will have either a preserve or estuary view. Select homesites are available directly on the river, some with an option for a private dock. Signature series homes start in the mid $300s, and Estate homes are priced from the mid $500s to over $1 million, with custom floorplan options.Visit RivellaFL.com to register for community updates and events in the coming months, including our model grand opening in spring 2019.
