Recently I had a conversation with David Gartner, who lives close-by in Sunny Isles Beach. What started out as a chat about his new book, quickly turned into a fascinating story about his career as Official Playboy Photographer! In June, he and and author Ellen Uguccioni released the beautiful book A Source of Community Pride: The Architecture of Sunny Isles Beach. The book celebrates the architectural design of visually stunning structures constructed since the city’s incorporation in 1997.

Visit David’s website and have fun time checking out his images of celebrities and his years at the Playboy Club!
