I was invited this past weekend to be a VIP Instagrammer at the AVP Manhattan Beach Open. I was invited up to the VIP lounge and was able to shoot anywhere throughout the event. It was an awesome opportunity to get up close and photograph these incredible athletes. It was a huge crowd with 3 different courts and numerous vendors selling their products. The day ended with a beautiful sunset overlooking the beach and The Strand. Manhattan Beach is a volleyball mecca and it's always great to go this event every year!
Costa Rica is known for their beautiful beaches, incredible rainforests and many volcanoes. It's one of the most biologically diverse countries in the world. The people were incredibly friendly and welcoming. I stayed in Playa Conchal and Playa Junquillal and spent most of my time in the beaches there. Be sure to explore all Costa Rica has to offer such as surfing, scuba diving, hiking and fishing.
One of the oldest continuously operated public farmers markets in the United States, be sure to give Pike Place Market a visit during your next stay in Seattle, Washington. Don't forget to grab a coffee at the original Starbucks right next door.

Open since 1917, Grand Central Market in Downtown Los Angeles is my favorite place to eat in LA. Its vendors offer some of the best modern and diverse cuisines this city has to offer.
