Today we’d like to introduce you to Byron Motley.
Byron, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Photography started off as a hobby for me many moons ago. It was not something I looked at as a profession until I was invited to exhibit some of my photos at a huge photography event in Croatia in 2005! I thought then, ‘well my stuff must be pretty good’! Since then, I’ve taken my photographic work more seriously and have delved into it whole-heartedly. Very proud to have had a book of my photos from Cuba recently published in a coffee-table book entitled “Embracing Cuba”! My strengths as a photographer are photographing models, actors, and travel-related photography.
Has it been a smooth road?
The struggle continues to be taken seriously as a photographer and obtaining an agent. Even as a published author and photographer with a book by a major publisher, finding the perfect marriage with an agent continues to be a hurdle, but I keep the faith the right one will come along!

Byron Motley is unbelievably talented. His new book is gorgeous and full of great information about Cuba. I am using it as a gift for friends and always gets a lot of compliments. We are thinking of taking a trip with Byron to Cuba because of his knowledge of the island. Can’t wait!

Byron has special talents not only in photography, but also as an entertainer. I first met him by accident many years ago and we continue to stay in touch. I have always bought his coffee table books in advance. If one wants to travel to Cuba, Byron has a remarkable understanding and knowledge of the people, culture, arts.
