Having not blogged for some time now I decided to create a new St Lucia Photo Blog site which I have called St Lucia By Kirk. This new site continues the tradition I started a few years ago of posting fun upbeat St Lucia photography accompanied by poignant descriptions of whatever it was that caught my eye.
I've taken this idea a step further with 3 great new offers:
A sign up link for my St Lucia Photo Tour. This tour goes out once a week, usually on a Wednesday, with a maximum of 10 photo enthusiasts who pack a DSLR camera…and spouses/partners are welcome to join us at a deeply discounted price. We spend an amazing 4 – 5 hours together as I take you to places where no visitor would ever reach on their own, for your Best vacation pictures ever … GUARANTEED. Plus I share my best photo tips tricks and insider secrets which I've gained over more than 20 years as a commercial photographer…
Limited Edition Framable Photographs of my Vey Best St Lucia Scenes from a little known cascading waterfall down in Anse la Raye to a different view of our famous Pitons and a Golden Palmed Sunset that is the favourite of so many who have already purchased… just to mention a few
The St Lucia Discount Card … This is the one that everyone just absolutely loves. For a limited time you can buy the St Lucia Discount Card for just U$10 and enjoy huge savings at 25+ places in St Lucia, from restaurants to car rental services, sea excursions and so much more. Best of all once you buy a card you get to enter our St Lucia Dream Vacation Draw for 4 FREE Nights back in St Lucia at the Bay Gardens Hotel…

So head on over to St Lucia By Kirk, check out all the cool stuff I'm sharing over there and please leave me a comment to let me know what you think…
A House In Tatters After Hurricane Tomas Pummels St Lucia
At the end of last month St Lucia took a severe beating from Hurricane Tomas. Last week I went out and shot pictures of the aftermath and spoke to some of the most affected people, many of whom are still walking around in a stunned dazed.
Prestige Auto Holdings Limited (PAHL) FaceBook FanPage
If you have followed my blog posts for any time now you will know that I am a firm believer in the power of the internet to empower us all.
In recent times I've not been as active on this blog like in the past. However it's all for a greater good as I work to give St Lucia a tremendously enhanced online presence using many of the internet marketing strategies that I have learnt.
For sometime now I've been talking to the folks at Prestige about using the internet for the benefit of their customers. So the other day Nannette, the General Manager, simply said to me "OK Kirk why don't you stop talking the talk and start walking the walk!" and the Facebook FanPage listed above is the result.
Here's The Idea…
Using the internet to share information is probably the most efficient way to help any purchaser to make an informed decision and this FanPage is an experiment aimed at proving that.
This will be your FanPage…A place to find great info, post interesting pictures and video.
And also a place to find The Very Best Deals on new and used vehicles.
The info will be available 24/7 and comes without the usual advertising costs, ultimately meaning better prices for you whenever you are ready to buy a ride.

Riding Thru Harrison’s Cave In Barbados
This week I’ve been spending the most amazing time at a family reunion in Barbados.
It turns out that I am the great grandson of a sea captain who had a few families in Barbados ( he is reputed to have sired more than 40 children!) and my trip over here has been like none I’ve ever done before.
At a time when I’m getting ready to promote St. Lucia’s tourism by creating a website to showcase "The Best of St. Lucia" I’ve been inspired by the discovery that my great grand father, Captain John Douglas, was also extremely philanthropic and would share out foodstuff to his entire community, both black and white, whenever he returned from a sea voyage…and this at a time when racial prejudice was a greater issue than it is today.
This discovery motivates me even more in my newest venture to use the internet skills I’ve acquired to benefit more people than just myself.

Stunning St. Lucia Beauty
At St. Lucia’s recent carnival I chanced upon this Beautiful Babe and had a field day with my camera. Not only was she stunningly beautiful, but she also had a wonderful personality, which was quite simply…the icing on the cake…
OK, so I’ve been missing in action for quite some time now, as I was super busy with so many ideas swimming around in my head, that I needed some time away.
Well I have crystallized some of those thoughts into an action plan that will see me promoting St. Lucia’s tourism in a very focused way online…
Do a google search for "St. Lucia" & I come up #1…even above The St. Lucia Tourist Board…And truth is I now have the skills to come up # 1 for lots of search terms and I will be using these skills to benefit St. Lucia’s Tourism, then next I’m gonna create a training program to share with photographers, the secrets of my techniques…techniques that are netting me bigger paying photo assignments than I ever received before, even in these harsh economic times!!!
Click this link to learn more about my recent seminar in which I showed exactly how I did it…
Hot on the heels of this seminar I’ll be on ‘Talk’, St. Lucia’s # 1 TV Talk Show, this Thursday August 5th expounding on the topic some more and I hope that you will tune in to see me and that you will offer your feedback…

Saluting Our Troops
As I fly back into Miami, yet again, I thought I’d pause to salute all of the brave men & women who serve in the military and help to make this world a safer place.
I remember traveling to Miami about a week or two after 911, and being shocked at how deserted the arrival hall was at Miami International Airport. It was as if no one dared to venture back into an aircraft…and little by little the world has clawed its way back to not being petrified of getting on a plane.
So once again…"Hats Off "… to the brave men & women in uniform who help to make our world a safer place…
