Before I became a long-term traveler, I was a nightlife photographer in Miami. Here are some of my favorite nightclub images from around South Beach.

Miami’s nightlife is pretty wild. I spent about 4 years of my life capturing all the glitz & glam on camera every night. It was an incredibly entertaining profession! But eventually you get sick of the late nights, drunken/drug-addled patrons, and a depressing income-to-work ratio.

It was a major reason why I decided to re-evaluate my lifestyle and head out into the unknown on my current travel adventures. But those nightclub photography jobs have certainly provided me with some great memories over the years. Not to mention a few unbelievable & ridiculous stories…

Anyway, in a moment of nostalgia, I wanted to share a few photos from my time working behind the velvet ropes of South Florida’s most popular nightclubs. Enjoy!
