Martha Asencio-Rhine - Photographer


I've been taking photos to document my life, family and friends for years. One day I decided I wanted this to be more than a hobby. Now I produce multimedia content for the photography team, manage our social media efforts, shoot daily assignments for news, sports and features and I am co-creator of a video series in which we try fun and unique things in the Tampa Bay area. My passions are deeply centered on family and good friendships. I love an adventure and I always have my camera handy.

  1. Diver Everton Simpson untangles lines of staghorn coral at a coral nursery inside the White River Fish Sanctuary on Monday, Feb. 11, 2019, in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. On the ocean floor, small coral fragments dangle from suspended ropes, like socks hung on a laundry line. Divers tend to this underwater nursery as gardeners mind a flower bed, slowly and painstakingly plucking off snails and fireworms that feast on immature coral.
