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.

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.

    Acabo de regresar de República Dominicana, el país donde nací. En Santo Domingo percibí las fragancias y sonidos que solo apreciaba en la distancia, sentí el vacío de haber perdido algo. Tenía sol
