Meet David Bulit in Hialeah

Today we’d like to introduce you to David Bulit.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’m an urban explorer and photographer. I started exploring in 2009 after seeing a documentary on other explorers up in the Northeast. The first place I explored was a prison out in the Big Cypress Preserve called Deep Lake Prison. At the time, I was just using a point-and-shoot camera, there were no good phone cameras back then. Soon after, I upgraded to a Nikon D40 and is when I began taking photography seriously. I am most known for my website Abandoned Florida which I started in 2010 to document abandoned and forgotten places throughout the state and to promote the restoration of many of these places. Throughout the years, I have become acquainted with other photographers, explorers, and owners of many of the places I’ve photographed.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has been pretty difficult during the early years. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease early on when I started and I was in constant pain. It’s been a struggle ever since but I try to push myself to continue doing what I love.

Please tell us more about what you do, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
I am most known for my website at www.abandonedfl.com due to my documentation of abandoned places throughout the state, many of which are gone or inaccessible unless some laws are broken.

Is there something we can do as a city to improve the outlook for businesses like yours?
For photography, Miami is a mixed bag. It has many photographic opportunities but there are also many photographers so starting out and breaking out is damn near impossible unless you set yourself apart by a large margin.
