Welcome to Tropical Fruit Photography!

I began working at the UF/IFAS/ Tropical Research and Education Center in 1999 on a distance education project entitled The Tropical Fruits Virtual Field Laboratory (TFVFL). My part in this project was to develop visual content of tropical fruit crops that would be presented to students as they navigated through the course pages. As my digital image library of tropical fruit pictures grew I began to present my images via the internet and this website was born. During the past ten years I have taken thousands of pictures of tropical fruit and it continues to be a rewarding experience for me and others. I update this site as often as I can so check back frequently.

The 2008 mango season is here and Iíll be working on a series of nighttime mango pictures using remote flashes over the next couple of months. I will post my results here and give a summary of the successes and failures of this project.
