Above is a photo of me and the Chief of Police in Jupiter Florida, Frank Kitzerow. Frank bought the photo for his office from the Jupiter Lighthouse Museum Gift Shop. If you drop by the gift shop keep an eye out for it. It shouldn’t be too hard to miss, it’s one of the biggest pieces there! Click here to see the original photo.
The bowling ally above is from Greenacres, Florida where they are redoing their panels. Instead of using generic images they’ve decided to go local with my photos.
Beautiful metal print of the Juno Beach Pier hanging above the living room couch.
The alligator photo above was published in a article for Reader Digest in the UK about the Everglades. The Everglades is a cool place but I think most people visit the park for the alligators. In that case I recommend Shark Valley for anyone visiting. You’ll get a taste of the Everglades and plenty of alligator photos. Click here to see the original photo.
The photo of the pirate ship above was used for an official stamp for the Pitcairn Islands. Have you ever heard of it? Me too. I had to Google it to find out where it was. Which was out in the middle of nowhere! Click here to see the original photo.
The Jupiter Lighthouse photo above is probably one of my most well known photo for Jupiter, Florida. I’ve had many requests for it to be used for many different things. One of the coolest request was for binoculars or Fanoculars to be exact.
Here is an image that I received from Florida Community Bank with my photos on a sample credit card. The above photos were all taken in Florida. To see the original photos for each credit card click the the following links… Credit Card 1, Credit Card 2, Credit Card 3

4. Do you sell prints of your photographs?
Short answer is no but read on if you would like a print. There was a time when I did sell prints but it became a lot of work ensuring quality, packaging and shipping. I feel my time is best spent capturing and processing photos. If you would like a print check my online store for more info – http://royalstockphoto.com/prints/
5. Advertising on CaptainKimo.com
For security reasons I do not allow any advertising on my website. The only advertising I have is with Google.
6. Do you alter your images at all?
Yes. All of my images are enhanced in some way using HDR techniques. You can learn more about my process with link below.
7. Where in Florida are you located?
I live in Palm Beach Gardens. It’s a beauitful area but I feel like it’s slowly getting overcrowded.
8. Can I go on a photo shoot with you?
The simple answer is no. I love to meet new people but over the years I have come across some interesting characters to say the least. Also this is what I do for a living so I have to make each shoot count. This means I can never guarantee where I am going to be on a shoot.
9. Can you speak at our camera club?
Currently my priority is making my business succeed so I don’t have time to do any public speaking.
10. When is your next HDR Workshop?
I don’t have any plans on scheduling a workshops.
11. Do you shoot weddings or portraits?
Sorry I do not offer these services. Shooting wedding and portraits require a certain passion for it that I don’t have. My love is for landscape, architecture, nature and wildlife. If you need someone to shoot your wedding or portrait you can contact Scott Kelly below. He’s a professional photographer with many years of experience and I highly recommend his work.
