Anthony J Rayburn was commissioned to photograph the newly renovated Mykonos Dove Hotel & Suites in Greece. Exclusively situated on Platis Yialos Beach, right on the clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea, this property combines the traditional Greek elements of luxury with state of the art modern, necessities.
Anthony spent six days on location capturing the essence of the neo-traditional space in the Cyclades. From the bright white washed walls of the property to the glass bottom pools of the private suites, Mykonos Dove offers endless space to relax and simply be lost in the beauty of the property.
Anthony’s main objective was to capture the property in a way that was non-intrusive to the guests while still capturing the magic of Mykonos in the summer.

Anthony J Rayburn architecture and resort photographers
"Anthony J Rayburn is a Franco-American born in California and raised in South Florida. Growing up with family in the Caribbean, the Americas, Europe, and North Africa, he always found himself most inspired by the commonalities and colours across cultures. These are always the stories that connect us as humans, and this has formed the foundation for his body of work today, focusing on the places, spaces, and faces of the tourism and hospitality industries.
His first assignment presented itself after high school - documenting and performing the reconnaissance for an off-road classic car rally in Morocco. After spending a few months in the Sahara living out of a Toyota Prado, he returned home to the States to attend university and pursue a career in international business and trade. After a few years in the industry and a lack of story in his life, he took a leap of faith and decided to chase the stories of the world.
Bilingual in English and French, he is based in South Florida but is no stranger to travel for most of his assignments."

Presentation, colours, composition, and ultimately the perception of the photographer are an alchemy in itself when it comes to photographing food and drink.
Anthony J Rayburn has frequented North Africa, the Caribbean, Western and Eastern Europe, and the Americas documenting places, spaces, and faces for various clients. However, no matter the destination, food was always the universal language. He learned that food needed to please much more than just the palette; it needed to please all the senses.
Hospitality photography being his niche, Anthony has photographed food and drinks for hotels, restaurants, and editorial clients around the world. His unique approach builds visuals that speak tell-tale exotic stories.
