29. Like everyone, a huge fan of traveling. B movies. 120 film. Scifi/post apocalyptic movies.. Spicy foods/strong beers. Every band should have an accordion or violin. I mostly take pictures of musicians for a living. My previous job was the same, but replace musicians w/dolphins. For the most part this is where I place recent photos, hoping someone out there will take a gander (and let me know what they think!). There's also the occasional nerdy reblog. No biggie. For more specifics, become a "friend" or "like" on the facebook.

Also, as a reminder to myself to read these later. Because the images are super.

Further reminding.

Fun Factoid, and because this needs to be reblogged. This photo was part of a series submitted to an art show in Florida. The crazy thing, the idea came about after reading too many words by Neil Gaiman and viewing his short, “Statuesque” (all introduced to me by the very pretty lady in the photo, also who was largely responsible for the subject matter). A few minutes ago, going through old pictures, I realized one of the images was liked by the “official Neil Gaiman” page. Which is insane. I’m skeptical if it was actually his hand doing the clicking, but it’s awesome regardless.Photo by Dan FlorezStatue: http://theethicsoflexicaltaboo.tumblr.com/

Another of Olympic super athlete and friend Chantae Mcmillan. An “in-between” shot from a set being submitted to a female fitness magazine (will tell later, if confirmed).As a personal back story - this shot was taken in the gym of my high school. I haven’t been there since I graduated 12 years ago - and had honestly forgot it exists (the weight room specifically). We used the school for it’s track - but after realizing the weight room wasn’t far away, took out two birds with one stone. Well, you know what I mean. Anyway, summary:

Weezer. 

Live at the st Augustine ampitheatre.

Weezer.

Live at the st Augustine ampitheatre.

Concert lighting is harsh. Sometimes too harsh, even with a super camera (my trusty Pentax). But! In this case it takes on a graphic novel look, and with the Sin City sequel coming out to theatres, this feels more apropriate.Tegan and Sara in the same photo. Whaaaa? Haven’t posted too many of those yet.
From their show at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in Florida.

A photo from yesterday’s shoot with Chantae Mcmillan. Basically every shot of her either looks like a Nike/Gatorade ad, or a new X-Men character.

Photo taken yesterday.

   My attitude towards “Hey, can you take a picture of so and so while I so and so…” is usually “Yeah, I can do that…”. My job is fun, and for the most part you learn something every time you’re out.

   When an Olympic athlete asks you to take some photos for a new line of work, that “Yeah” turns more into “Whaaaaa????!! Definitely.” So today, I did just that. At the beach. The shots will be more refined in the future, but just to kind of warm up and try to figure out the end goal we took some shots down at the beach. Here are a few for now…

Olympic Athlete Chantae McMillan in St. Augustine, Florida. (By the way, she does the heptathlon, in the track and field division. 1 or 2 events clearly isn’t enough. 7 is required.)

any photographers looking to come one tour for a week or two?

To all out there: if you know anyone who knows someone with this kind of need, please pass it to this guy. Please and thank you.
