About Photos

Sand between Your Toes photo blog is brought to you by amateur nature photographer Teddy Meeks featuring a daily image of his work.

My goal is to capture the absolute stunning beauty of nature that is Panama City Beach and the surrounding Emerald Coast.”

From the peaceful black water bayous to the sugar white sands, the Emerald Coast is like no other coastline in the world.  Like all cities, Panama City Beach has its faults, but at the end of the day we have beautiful beaches, emerald waters, abundant wildlife and glowing sunsets… what’s not to love! 

Feel free to make comments, add requests and most of all enjoy the beauty of nature.

So cool. Is there a way to go back and see previous pictures, or a link to “gallery”?

Thanks Meredith,

There is an “archive” at the bottom of each page. 10 photos are held on each page before they are sent to the monthly archive.

Just wanted to comment on your photos…they are beautiful!!!

Who does your finishing work?….Are they done with a 35mm or digital??

I also have a passion for photography and own a Nikon N-90 but haven’t done much with it for a few years and now everything seems to be digital and I know nothing about that.

I’m also new to Panama City area so your photos brought to light some of the beauty around here. Thx

I love your photo blog! Photography has been one of my hobbies since I turned 16. I have one album that is just my nature shots. You have such beautiful pictures of PCB!

These are truly gorgeous. I don’t know much about photography, but I do know what I like and appreciate. I imagine you have some great pictures from the cruise this summer. David and I thought Belize was lush and beautiful.

Again, beautiful work. I look forward to seeing what else you put up.

Do you have a re-use policy for photos? I found one I would like to use in an advertisement for my condo rentals site in the Chamber Circuit magazine. I have to have the ad to print by 8-20-09. Let me know your thoughts.

Sure, only request photo credit on the ad/image. Let me know which photo and what product/company the photo will represent.

Dear Ted,

First of all, your pictures absolutely stunning, just real professional quality work. You have an artist’s eye. I really love this photo: http://pcbdaily.com/bayou-shrimp-boat

I read the photo reuse police above, but I just wanted to double-check.

I’m interested in using that photo on short run (20 copies) self-published chapbook of poems. If you email me at jeff.newberry@gmail.com, I’ll be happy to send you the poems and tell you more about the project.

My best,
Jeff Newberry

Good afternoon!
Found one of your images when I was looking for something to use on the cover of a local realtor’s brochure. Beautiful work. What do I need to do for permission to use a photo in my brochure design?
Would love to hear from you via email. Might could use your talent elsewhere, if you’re interested.
Thanks so much and enJOY your day!

Just let me know which image you’d like to use and I’ll forward you a hi-res copy suitable for printing. All I ask is for photo credit for the image.

Mr. Meeks,

Amazing work, you have an eye for pure natural beauty. I came across your site and was interested in using one of your photos in an advertisement for my traveling company. Full credit will be given to you in the advertisement. Would you be willing to let me use your artwork?


11 04 2012


No problem. Just send me a copy of the ad once completed

Is it possible for you to send me a high-def copy of the photo? The one labeled seashell and sugar white sand is the one of interest.

Thank you.

– Josh
