This is the work of Photographer Douglas DeFelice, Portraiture, Events, Sports/Action, Nature/Wildlife, Landscape, Fine Art photography based in Tampa, FL. All Rights are Reserved. Professional Sporting Events are not available for purchase, because of Copyrights and other Restrictions. I was born and raised on Long Island, NY and as a child growing up in the 80's, I began my love for Photography and Videography, from my father. My brother and I, would work as assistants for my father while he would Photograph and Video weddings for his Company. That is where I began to gain my eye for Photography and start to establish my own ideas. I then became a Police Officer with the NYPD at the age of 20, and after 20yrs of Dedicated Service, I decided to retire, follow my passion to open my own business, and make it a reality. I have taken my ability, as a Police Officer, to pay great attention to detail, and use it in my Photography. I am a perfectionist when it comes to my work, and work diligently to produce the best product I can. Once I moved to the Tampa area, I knew after 2 months that I was in love with the area, and have found my "Home". I live in paradise, and everyday is a wonderful adventure.
I own and operate Prime 360 Photography LLC. I also freelance as a Professional Sports Photographer with Eclipse Sportswire, covering all types of Professional Sporting Events. Some of the events that I have covered are Breeders Cup (as the official photographer, covering all events associated with the venue and racing footage), US Men's and Women's Soccer Tournament Play, Dubai World Cup, Kentucky Derby, to name a few. You can find a lot of my work with Eclipse Sportswire on Getty Images. I am also a licensed FAA Drone Pilot, and have attended journalism school in Atlanta regarding Drone Piloting.
One thing I am very proud of is my Volunteer work with Owl's Nest Sanctuary for Wildlife in Odessa, Florida. I am on the Board of Directors as the Media Director, as well as a Rescue Volunteer and Photographer with them. It is very rewarding to give back to the beautiful animals on this planet. We have been featured numerous times on The Wildlife Docs and my work has been shared by different News Organizations.
