Miami Herald Op-Ed – Scotty’s Landing in Coconut Grove

Scotty’s Landing on the left is almost always busy- The Chart House on the right usually has an empty deck

Here is my first photographic Miami Herald Op-Ed piece which I wrote recently.  Scotty’s Landing is a popular bayfront restaurant and bar which has a long-term lease with the city of Miami.  That lease is up for renewal now.  Some larger, corporate, chain restaurants would like to pay the city for a new lease but Scotty’s has a loyal clientele.  It’s an interesting battle.  My opinion is pretty obvious in the Op-Ed.  To go the Miami Herald’s online edition of my Op-Ed, go here.

What are your thoughts?  Should the independent, locally-owned restaurant get a new long-term lease?  Or should the city give it to an out-of-town, corporate chain?

I’m hired to photograph people and events: executive headshots, magazine portraiture, acting & modeling photos, family portraits, online dating profile photos, weddings, mitzvahs, quinces, etc. in Southern Florida, in Maine (whenever I’m back there visiting) and I travel often to photo shoots.   I’ve had private portrait sessions with many prominent people which YOU CAN VIEW HERE.
