The beach has always felt like home to Christian Wheatley. Whether surfing in California at age 11 or later working in the Florida Keys on a reef project, he has always been in search of that perfect beach. It was no surprise that his honeymoon in the Virgin Islands in 2007 brought him to the beautiful island of St. John, US Virgin Islands.
Christian Wheatley is a self-taught photographer that began directing his creative juices from writing and music to a visual form in 2001. His incredible eye for light and form became a passion... a life path he has followed.
Christian’s lifestyle photography has been featured in “Conde Nast Traveler”, “Caribbean Travel & Life”, “Destinations”, “Town & Country” and many more. His photo art captures that moment in time at a pristine beach that brings back the serenity and memories of your perfect holiday in the islands.
Today his studio is located on a beach in St. John or a cliff in St. Thomas or a sunset in many of the Caribbean islands that call to him.
Born on the island of St.Thomas, Shansi Miller is celebrated for her ability to capture the vibrancy of the Caribbean. Her pieces, which are highly sought after by local and mainland collectors, are immediately distinguishable by their careful execution, intricate details, compositional complexity, and rich narratives. Each piece captures the subtleties and exchanges that exist in a transient moment, telling its own unique and vivid story of this seldom seen world of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
