About Samuel Lewis / ImageReflex

Achziv Sunset
Image © 1991, Samuel Lewis. Located on the Mediterranean a few miles south of the Israeli/Lebanese border, barbed wire on the beach at Achziv, Israel, mars what would otherwise be one of the more picturesque and popular resort areas in the Middle East, and reflects the reality that whatever peace exists is at best tenuous.

With my beginnings as a photojournalist, I bring the same journalistic approach to creating sports-related images. Over the last twenty-five years, I have worked for a variety of news-gathering organizations, performed extensive contract work including for several major universities, and my images have appeared in a wide variety of publications. I am based in South Florida.
I have covered FIU sports extensively since 2005, and now have over 60,000 images available in a searchable library. If you have difficulty locating a specific image or ordering prints, please contact me for assistance.

Monitor Calibration

In order to see the images on this website correctly, you must be able to see black, white and each individual shade of gray in the scale above. If the scale doesn't look right, you probably need to calibrate your monitor.

To calibrate your monitor, decrease the brightness of your monitor until the last two dark shades on the scale above appear black. Then increase the brightness until the first shade of gray appears next to black at the end of the scale. When you can see two separate shades at the far left side of the scale, stop adjusting the brightness and instead, adjust the contrast until the rest of the shades appear distinct from dark on the left side of the scale to bright on the right side of the scale.
