Photographer Alexy Poutrel first caught our eye with his incredibly vibrant shots of Miami Beach, with palm trees silhouetted against fiery morning skies.
Originally from Paris, Alexy moved to Miami a few years ago, carving out a career as a creative director and helping a number of well-known brands to bring their visions to life.
His interest in photography only really developed in the last decade and he's extremely dedicated, most mornings waking super early to catch the amazing sunrises: "I've always liked the time before the dawn," he explains, "because there's no one around to remind me who I'm supposed to be."
We asked Alexy to share his creative take on Miami Beach...
"I wake up early, so when I finish shooting the sunrise in Miami Beach I love to go to Newscafé on Ocean Drive to have a coffee."
"One of my favourite districts in Miami is Wynwood - a really nice location to hang out. There is a place called 1-800-LUCKY where they serve asian food and it's a great place to grab lunch."
"If you have extra money to spend for an amazing brunch, then head to The Biltmore in Coral Gables for one of the best brunches I ever had. Go there on a Sunday - and don't forget to make a reservation before!"
"If you're looking for a place to enjoy the sunset, go to Rusty Pelican. It's a great restaurant with a very nice view of downtown Miami."
