Jamaican Paradise at Scotch on the Rocks in Ocho Rios

Photos of Ocho Rios, Jamaica by top New York Photographer Michael Jurick

When New York City was in a deep Siberian freeze, we escaped to a Jamaican paradise in Ocho Rios at the super awesome villa called "Scotch on the Rocks." It was the ultimate family winter break when sunshine, warmth, good vibes and the Jamaican way of life to renew your spirit. The name "Scotch on the Rocks" reflects both the villa's history and location. Sitting on the rocks just above the Caribbean Sea, "Scotch on the Rocks" was originally owned by a Scottish Lord. In the 1980s, the Earl of Mansfield sold the house to a Jamaican family, renowned for founding Red Stripe Beer. Today, Scotch on the Rocks is still owned by members of that family

"Scotchie," as the villa is affectionately called, is ideal for family vacations or romantic getaways. The villa is extremely private and has a full staff of four, including a cook, waiter, butler and housekeeper. Visit Scotch on the Rocks, and treat your mind, body and soul to a vacation in paradise - http://www.scotchontherocksja.com Yoga in the morning, hours of tennis in the afternoon, day trips along the coast and rum punch at night...it was the best winter break!

Team Scotchie! We got so close with our friends Bryan, Miss Cheri, Elvis, Richard, Pat - they made our experience so comfortable and unforgettable. Thank you so much to Leslie for this incredible stay. (Missing Amir and Isaac from this photo, they had to leave early.)

Just want to say how much we truly loved Jamaica. The people are so genuine and kind and show no cares in the world - and that's why it's our favorite Island in the Carribean. Ya Mon!!!

Sam's Spectacular Super Bowl Sunday and Ski Bar Mitzvah Celebration

Super Bowl Bar Mitzvah and Ski Trip by top New York Photographer Michael Jurick

Wow, where to begin with this incredible story about the biggest and most awesome family. Let's dive into the most meaningful part - Sam's reading from the Torah. This is something Sam took so seriously and made his family and friends so proud. We captured some really beautiful images in the sanctuary and even created an heirloom photograph of Sam that was used at the Super Bowl party. Sam loves his friends and just wanted to have friends around to celebrate - so the timing of the Super Bowl worked out perfectly and had the most unique post-Torah reading celebration - a Super Bowl Mitzvah Celebration - how cool! Gourmet Advisory, Total Entertainment and Jennifer Gould collaborated to create a Super Bowl Sunday nobody could forget - with incredible food catered by Abigail Kirsch. As an avid skier, Sam got away from it all with a few friends for an intimate weekend of laughs, fun, family and skiing. I've included a few of my signature infrared images in this collection which really showcase the beautiful ski conditions. I'd like to thank Sam's family for creating a unique experience for Sam and I'm so happy we've become good friends through this whole journey. Thank you to Paolo Ferraris, Nathaniel Johnston and Mark Sweeney for joining the adventure to photograph Sam's amazing and unforgettable celebration - a true team effort!
