Hi, my name is Xina.
I am a self-taught fine art photographer based in St. Petersburg (Tampa Bay), Florida. I am a St. Pete native. I have a Bachelors Degree in Geography and Anthropology from University of South Florida.
Wildlife & Nature
I am most known for my Macro Collection of wildlife and nature. Capturing the smallest details challenges and excites me. Macro offers a totally different perspective on nature. I also experiment with panoramas and bird photography.
There is no place I’d rather be than outside exploring or on the road getting lost somewhere with my camera. My most ambitious projects involve visiting National Parks. I am a huge supporter of conservation of natural public lands, from our city parks all the way up to National Parks. I have hiked up to Mt. Leconte in Tennessee, El Yunque in Puerto Rico and more. Moments like these are what makes me feel grateful to be alive. When I hike up 6 miles and look out, I feel truly human. It puts it into perspective what is most important – the Earth that we live on. Without fertile land to grow food, pollinators, clean water, and clean air – humans won’t have the luxuries we don’t think of as privileges like being able to go to the beach, or having fish for dinner. I can only hope to convince people to enjoy and conserve public lands with my photographs.
My conceptual art sends a message or is based on dreams and fantasies. In the past I spent some time focusing on erotica. Most of my conceptual work is in ‘pop art’ style.
I grew up working for my father Vincent Scuderi, who was an artisan here in St. Pete working in wood, metal, and stained glass. He is now retired. My photography is often merged with with various carpentry and finishing techniques via handmade framing and resin panels.
