“Electric Bamboo” by Michael Raiman



Michael Raiman has lived in Palm Beach County for 62 years inspiring him to capture the beauty of South Florida’s natural landscapes. Starting with a 35mm camera loaned to him by his father, Michael learned the art of photography and composition through workshops, seminars, and from other photographers. It was studying under Jack Wild of the Delray Beach Center for the Arts that pulled him out of his comfort zone and into new environments. Michael entered his first photography competition at Arthur R Marshall Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge taking home the blue ribbon in one category and the Honorable Mention in another.


“Delicate Arch, Utah” by Michael Raiman



Since then, Michael, has won many awards and accolades for his ability to capture whatever excites him and using his lens to make the commonplace unusual. His goal is to have the viewer see the familiar in an unfamiliar way, lines leading around an image and forcing a momentary pause. Michael says this is what photography does for him, ‘It makes me slow down and really look within an environment; forcing me to be wholly present – like a meditation.’


“Step One” by Michael Raiman Worth Avenue Series


Michael chairs the Lake Worth Art League’s Photography Group and was selected to be a leader in this year’s Scott Kelby’s Worldwide PhotoWalk. He and his wife, Lynne Ottimer, recently celebrated 30 years in their Delray Beach home with their three feline friends. They are active members in the South Florida arts community and in the Palm Beach Bromeliad Society. More about Michael and his photos and to inquire about commission work can be found at
