This past Saturday, February 24th 2018, I had the pleasure of documenting the Miss Gainesville Scholarship Pageant. Titles were awarded for Miss Gainesville, Miss Lake City, Miss Gainesville Outstanding Teen and Miss Lake City Outstanding Teen.  This was my 3rd year shooting it and I was grateful to once again be chosen. Here are some of my favorite shots from the evening.

A Portrait of a DJ- A New York City Experience

A portrait of a DJ.

This is a true #fbf or Flashback Friday. I was shooting with a 35mm back then. This photo is circa 1998.  While visiting some friends in New York, we took many great strides in having an impromptu photo session. We arrived at a street party in a park in the Bronx. The young woman who immediately caught my eye was spinning music. I wasn’t accustomed to seeing a female DJ. And seeing one spin out in the open in a park. But we were in the Bronx; the birthplace of hip hop. It was a fun time. Sometimes it pays to just carry your camera around and like a tourist. I like being able to hop out of  a car with my camera in hand and capturing one of those fleeting moments in time.  I wish i could recall what she was mixing.  I just know that I was excited to grab a shot. I’d taken no other like it up to that point in my young exploration of photography up to that point.
