#MIAPhotowalk Photos Recap & More For You! – PART 1

#MIAPhotowalk

 

What’s up Miami…and everyone else on the Internet! The rain in the city today made the day dragggg, and the workload followed. There’re so many more things to be done over the coming few weeks, but it could be worst so I’m thankful AF (photographers around the world will be weird like, “Thankful as auto-focus?”). Luckily, as of late I’m around cameras all day – Nikon, Canon (*we are an authorized dealer), Olympus, Leica, FujiFilm, SONY and I’m sure I’m missing a few Pentax etc. resulting to super late night post like this one on a #TuckerTuesday (by the way, just follow me to Instagram or Twitter to see when I randomly share stuff like this – or just check my blog all 604,800 seconds of the week.) Throughout the week, a number of those nights are spent in studio (music) / meetings getting ready for summer; then repeat the process.

Everybody who attended last week’s Photowalk in Miami (first of all, thank you all because you people were / are dope!) know why I get to be around cameras all day, and that’s because I announced my postion & new partnership with **Electric Avenue – Electronics Store Miami’ – Photography Department. When the opportunity approached I took it in a heartbeat; considering my obsession / love for photography, considering I went to school for Advertising Design, considering shopping at WholeFoods, and eating at the Truluck’s aint cheap. (that’s the part you laugh to yourself and say, “This “manual-focus” Tucker is too much!”.

The only other credible photography stores I knew of in Miami were, World Wide Photo (I think they’re not in operation anymore, either that or they moved from the Biscayne location.), Aperture Pro (primarily for renting), Wolf Camera (I think that’s the name, the one that used to be in Dadeland Mall), and Pitman Photo Supply (because in the past I bought some gear from them.) Part of my goal with the partnership is to help make known that Electric Avenue is located 259 E Flagler Street, and the current team / family that’s there / the meetings that we have to….look let me just say man it’s awesome.

Anyway, I saw Woo.Supreme of Instagram post about a Photowalk happening in Miami hosted by @brickell_living alongside a few other SouthFlorida photographers: @xynn.tii, @weownthecity, @jonjonvisuals and @woo.supreme. Prior to, it’s been a while that I’ve been on a Photowalk, my recommendation, if you love photography, next time there’s a Photowalk happening in your city, check it out; you’ll love it. The amazing thing about this one is that it was simply for the any-level photography lover. Didn’t matter what camera, etc. just if you loved photography. But it was also amazing to see so many DSLR users come out.

For the person reading who don’t know what a Photowalk is, to sum it up, you spend a part of your day walking, socializing, networking, meeting, some awesome people….because everybody who loves photography is pretty much awesome, our books.

Back on track, I wanted to find a way to contribute to this event, so I hit the homie Woo up after making possible with Electric Avenue to giveaway $100.00, $50.00 & $25.00 the first second and third winners – which we’ll choose and annonce on May 1st, 2015 (make sure you’re following @electricavenue_superstore on Instagram – also, I see a lot of photographs going to the #MIAPhotowalk hashtag which is awesome, but for reassurance @ / tag @electricavenue_superstore to reassure we see them; just a little suggestion para tu.) As announced, the winners will be choosen based upon interaction via Insta as well as from being judged by our in-house photographers.

Below is Part 1 of  photographs that I made on the Photowalk. I have more to share in Part 2 of next week’s post so check back next week’s #TuckerTuesday.

(Thanks to those people sending me shots that they took of me out there. If you continue to send I’ll share on my @dtuckerofficial Instagram.)

D. TUCKER Now Available on Spotify

D. TUCKER on Spotify

Last weekend a friend sent me a screen shot of the Still Pushing’ album on Spotify.

still pushing by d. tucker screen shot

Must say that, I found it pretty dope; despite me not liking the way they pay their artist. (Going off of what I read about Taylor Swift some time ago.) I’m not even sure if I’ve made money from Spotify in the past, but I’ll know / collect soon, in a few months approaching the half year mark when I get to check all of that data. Hopefully after reading this blog post you’ll stream the album several times, and I’d have enough coins left over for some coffee. (It be like that with these streaming services for musicians yo!)

Luckily ‘Still Pushing’ is up for sale on iTunes, and a few other digital-retail outlets. I’m sharing the Spotify link with you because I could careless about where you get my music, free or not, just once you come to a show someday, or purchase a shirt, a bracelet, a DVD (when it’s available because you better believe I’m going to make a movie someday – hopefully have it on Netflix), a poster, just some merch from me somewhere – ideally from my store; or book a photo-shoot session or something….yeah you get the idea. Overal, I just want everybody who know’s of me to rock with this project so that you can say, “I knew about D. TUCKER before he became “This” D. TUCKER.” My tracks before this album, like the ones from high-school doesn’t count either. I mean they do because it’s part of the process but this one is the one right before I got a full understanding of what I’m supposed to be doing with my music, how I can really bring value to people when they listen you know; my purpose as the musician D. TUCKER (other than just flowing on a beat…I only have one life to do this so I really put an effort into figuring out everything mentioned. It’s really levels to this / a process.)

On to what’s really important, it’s another TuckerTuesday!

For me to be able to write to you and say that feels good. Especially after mediating and plotting today’s task by the ocean. Thank God for life. In fact, thank God a little more for an amazing life and the ability to push towards an even better one.

I’m still pushing with these blog post hoping that soon enough some blod soul will start talking in the comments, and all creative minds that stumble post akin will trade thoughts in the comments. It’s cool the emails, and DMs that I get but don’t be afraid to write me here in the comments. It will give me something to read and feel better when I take breaks after dealing with some of the bullshit that happens to find me throughout the week.

Blah.

I’m closing this post, you know what to do in the comments…also if you have the Twitter thing, @DwayneTucker Tweet me on Twitter.

Enjoy your day and if you stream the music throughout working or whatever you’re doing today, let me know which track you like the most. In the main time, I’m going to head over to VSCO and write my photography students. I’m in love with the community that VSCO developed because now everybody is a “photographer” thanks to iPhone / smart phones etc. but VSCO supplies tools for you to still make the photo the best that it can and that’s dope. Like a little Photoshop on the phone.

If you use VSCO as well that’s something you could share in the comments….only if you want me reviewing your photos and leaving feed back.

After that, it’s into the studio because I’m finishing an EP and a mixtape with a partner and I must say that this shit is a blessing man. I feel like me, I feel good, I feel blessed and yet still I still have a lot of pushing to do / a long way to go.

All love,
D. TUCKER

Shopjipsi Necklaces, Chokers, Bracelets, and More

It’s becoming more known that I am a man with ample love for quality products; often nautical when I’m the supplier. What excites me more than quality products themselves are the people behind the distribution, the people with the authentic hustling-spirt, the ones with the mission of serving you with love.

inblue esty shop book

For example, this sketchbook from in blue handmade that I’m using to draft the TuckerTuesday entry that you’re reading while I had a few hours to kill. (Obviously only in my possession because the anchor; YACHTLIFE what up!).

Over the times you saw my love for products with my appreciation for the Fadedxx hat that I often wear. (Follow me on snapchat: dtucker305 | Twitter: @DwayneTucker | Instagram: dtuckerofficial – and I’m sure you’ll see the hat that I’m talking about somewhere at some point.) You saw it with my YACHTLIFE Dockside Bracelets (I promise to bring a new collection to you – as soon as my past partners and I are back on the same page.) You see it with my photo-canvas at my online store…and if you didn’t see it / know that I am a man of the products, it’s my goal to make sure you know that this year…get excited.

Shopjipisi

At random weeks ago I followed @offlinebabe on Twitter for a few reasons other than her having a hot profile photo. I saw that she was active sharing products from her online store (shown above) / because she had an online store, and her bio shared two common intrest, “art enthusiast | Miami…”. She’s the lady behind: shopjipsi.storenvy.com

In addition to everything the law of attraction has to offer, the description of her website / the tag line of her website is, “All “handmade” with love.”

What caught my attention the most from her store are the knives – on the sidebar of her store click ‘Girl Gang’ and shop those knives; they’re absolutely beautiful and a win for her target audience! (At the end of the month when I spend my Google check I’ll be picking one up for MT.)

The knives stood-out to me the most because in my youth-days my friends (girls and boys) collected really cool knives. We spent our evenings and weekends on the boats so they came in handy for cutting rope / fishing lines / fuckboys etc.

I had a really sick Smith & Wesson knife that I kept on me at all times for protection, when I wondered into areas that I didn’t belong after hours photographing the night away…wild days.

When I returned from college years ago first semester, my knives disappeared. I’m 99.9% sure it was my mother who threw them out because she was never fond of them; that’s a different story.

Anyway, I’m about to wrap this up and get some free Tacos from Wood Tavern. The people who follow me in real life know that anytime I recommend a product it’s of quality, so you should know the same. With that said, head over to shopjipsi.storenvy.com and show love.

Until next time,
All love,

D. TUCKER

Do what you have to do and have fun

The artwork displayed below is by AR.

BirdieMusic Ant Art

Easier said than done, but today for an example is the proof behind that headline. When I logged in today to share another TuckerTuesday post for you today, I was greeted with ample pending-updates, configurations / webmaster tools / etc. / etc. / etc. in NEED of attention. The plan changed (I’m comfortable with it because on personal projects, photo-shoots, video-shoots, studio sessions with video-shoots…everything is subject to change and you must adapt) and bitching about what needs to be done never works; so don’t. I just did what I had to (I’m growing to handeling task better…hmmm let’s see…it’s like this…you know when you’re in bed and it’s 6 a.m., you’re so comfortable but you wake up and realize you have to pee but you don’t want to get out of bed?…I’m growing to that point where Major Pain is blowing the whistle, and saying, “Tucker move your black ass and make some awesome stuff.”…just out of the bed and get your hustle on…type of thing. – I hope you followed me with all of that just now.)…back on track, I listened to my Still Pushing album for a little, because it’s still on repeat in my iTunes (yes I listen to my own music – and if you like good music you should do the same :) )…I’ll share tomorrow on, Music Wednesdays, who else I listened to while working on website’s maintenance; come back tomorrow for that.

If you’re new here to the blog, what up, “wazzgood”, welcome, all that good love mi casa su casa type feel; Tuesdays is TuckerTuesdays (as you can see on this late night entry, I  pop-up at random, and write whenever I feel like it so the best way to keep updated with when I post is to follow me on Twitter – http://www.twitter.com/DwayneTucker because I Tweet when I post or send me an email to dwayne[at]dwaynetucker[dot]com and ask to be on the mailing list- then you’ll get it somewhere in that mix. – I’ll get better with a set time overtime when I’m not doing this overtime. For the love of sharing good vibes I tell you.)

The goal on Tuesdays is to put positive into the internet; to inspire other creatives (y’all inspire me too so say what up with a Tweet, I want to be inspired by your current projects.

Two things I’m going to share with you to take as I’m not making this entry too much longer. One is from my Grandmother, and two is something that you should go, and do.

First one, my Grandmother always say, “No use complaining because nobody’s listening.” Like today for example, I won’t say that I wasn’t annoyed having to spend so much time on the back end of the website…in the past…actually a few weeks ago before I had this talk again with Grammy..a complaint would have been in there some where…as of recent I’ve had a ton of love in my heart, the passion of everything I do feels lit, I feel good…and that’s only because others around me help me remember to reflect the worth…so here I am with hopes as an inspiration to you to want to smile through bullshit while giving your everything to what you love…

Blah.

Now I jump into the second, and that’s to find a friend like Heather (let’s call her that for the blog’ sake.) What type of friend is Heather? One with a super positive attitude / uplifting, passionate, driven…just make you want to do more good…makes you want to keep grinding.

Without these positive people around you…one, it’s harder for you to be positive yourself…two, life is much difficult…and point no fingers either…if people around you aren’t as lovely as Heather…then do what I’m trying to do – keep that positivity flowing through you, to past on to the next person who needs it. Life is so much better, your work, everything when your mind is right and you feel good.

That’s about it for tonight though, it’s getting really late to be blogging…this could have been a caption on an instagram pic but way too long for the gram (IG: dtuckerofficial- connect with me there with a follow.)

I’m about to run again Still Pushing and look at a few more images / bodycopy online and see what’s new in the AD world until I pass out.

All love,
D. TUCKER

More Music For You (02/25/15)

Shared on the blog today is Big Sean’s ‘Dark Sky Paradise’Gill Graff – Eleanor, Joey Bada$$ – “Like Me” ft. BJ the Chicago KidDizzy Wright – Train Your MindCamille SafiyaGDWRKZ & BeetBoxx….this post is going to be to the very to the point as I brush the topics before leaving today so let’s keep moving.

Big Sean – Dark Sky Paradise

I’m happy for Sean with this album, and for everything positive going for him. The dude is working his ass off and you can hear it in the tracks, the content he’s pushing etc. etc. go to the iTunes store and pick up a copy if you can. Show love to the Detroit dude! Before we move on to the next artist, peep the music video for Dark Sky (Skyscrapers) below.

See, there’s not much that’s needed to be said after watching that video right…keep pushing that “GOOD” work Sean!

Next on the list is my Miami brother Gill Graff with is video Eleanor that released today. Gill has been pushing as well, cooking up some solid tracks and now building a gallery of quality videos to go along with the music that’s already out there. Shout-out to the directors as well; awesome shit.  Let’s take a look at the video below.

I’m going to pull this quote /paragraph-description directly from Gill’s Youtube channel for the people who don’t dive deeper into the descriptions – “As we all know, The ROLLS ROYCE vehicles have a unique hood ornament or emblem that defines it’s elegance. It is a chrome figure that looks like an angel leaning forward while spreading it’s wings. That figure was made after a real life woman called “Eleanor Thornton” who was a model actress in the 1800’s. This song is dedicated to her but metaphorically and ultimately is about striving for our dreams and striving for success.

“We all have an Eleanor, we all have something that we strive for, whether it’s good health, money, freedom, freedom from financial hardship, etc. I just happen to choose Eleanor because I felt in love with the concept of dedicating this song to a person who represents success in my eyes.” – Gill Graff”

Much respect to the thought put into the track and the video; the model being body painted silver like Eleanor…all of it is good stuff Gill…

Joey Bada$$ – “Like Me” ft. BJ the Chicago Kid:

If this isn’t the best video concept that you’ve seen in the last years then please show me because I need to see. Respect Joey…fucking respect…the other day Miszmarcy (Who is going to be taking over the Music Wednesdays section of the blog starting next week btw) showed me this video…I saw the headline for it on a few blogs that I followed but I never got around to sitting down and watching it…the video is deep the content is fucking real…man I’m happy to have his guy as apart of the industry, and I await the day that we work together…are in the studio together…just a conversation at some point…he he’s here for a reason…keep up with that good work Joey!

And while on that topic of people bringing meaningful messages / topics into the mix…let’s not forget to mention Dizzy Wright’s Train Your Mind track and video (after watching it I hope you want to train your mind! It’s needed! Thanks for this one Dizzy)….another person who I’m happy for…anybody who is grinding out there with meaning, and I recognize the real in your work then yeah…here’s his video:

I already mention Joey, and he’s from the north, the last few people that I’m going to mention aren’t as known as the bunch above but they deserve the light shined as well because these people are fucking talented and with the drive there going to be up there as well! Miszmarcy have been introducing me to a lot of artist from her neck of the concrete jungles. First one I’m going to introduce here on the blog is Camille Safiya her website is – camillesafiya.com and there you can give her latest project a listen; go and check it out.

While talking about the latest project, I’ll give a quick shout-out to the photographer behind the project’s cover, Stan, whom I learned about because he’s working on a few projects with Miszmarcy; good shit. (I’m liking your photos dude, keep grinding with it….for those who don’t know, I show much respect to the photographers because other than being a musician if this is your first time stumbling on the blog, I’m a photographer as well.)

Camille, I love the topic of the first video of your 24K LP that I’m about to post below. You got flow and I’m hoping to meet up when I’m in the north…keep on grinding! Also, I’m hearing that you have a show tonight in NYC at the Delancy; best wishes tonight! If NYC tonight be there at 7 p.m.

Dope…I’m loving the message; take notes people!

Last but not least,

GDWRKZ & BeetBoxx, I’ve been keeping updated via SoundCloud with these dudes as I was looking for new artist in the north.

Beetboxx has new video co-produced by GDWRKZ and it’s dope…I really f**k with what you guys are cooking, and I’m looking forward to seeing what we could chef up together as well when I’m in the north.

Here’s the video:

That’s all y’all!

Before I leave, a special thanks to all who bought my Still Pushing album yesterday on iTunes and to the ones who left a review etc. Means a lot.

All Love,

by me (D. TUCKER) from the years 2011-2014.

D. Tucker's Still Pushing Album Artwork

(Purchase ‘Still’ Pushing’ on iTunes)

This feels good y’all! Before we speak more about this album, a warm mother-f**ing welcome to the new vistor(s) (a tad bit excited, I am). There are several reasons why you’re here today (and all of them are appreciated), you could be a random visitor from the vast-land of the Internet, we had good vibes flowing when we met, and you grabbed one of my business cards, you know Tuesdays are TuckerTuesdays ont the blog, you follow me on Twitter (or just creeping), you received a private newsletter from me etc. etc. (email me to: dwayne[at]dwaynetucker[dot]com and let me know that you want to be on my mailing list) – whichever way you ended up here, thank you for passing by; now let’s get on to the album!

I decided to share this album ‘Still Pushing‘ for one main reason – when I meet new people I’m tired of having to say, “Yeah I make music; been making it for a while but still growing content etc. etc. etc…”

I thought why not make an album of my favorite tracks, and give those to you. Now, I’m just going to be like, “Yeah I make music, and I made an album of my top tracks over the years so you could listen to my personal favs that spins on my iTunes, and you can purchase the album from the iTunes Music Store to show some love.”

1. Love It Hate It 

2. The Sketch

3. How Can I Trust You

4. Good Girls 

5. Security Cop Talk 

6. Amplified 

7. Music Like Drugs 

8. What’re You Into 

9. Drink Up 

10. Red Dress 

11. If I Want

If YOU want to, you can make that purchase here today…(Order Still Pushing by D. TUCKER) I must warn you first though, before you spend that $9.99  on iTunes for the album, remember that this shit is mighty-medical-music…don’t blame me when you become addicted.

Haha…but really, it’s only 10 bucks, show some love. YACHT.

All love,
D. TUCKER

And Here’s Why

Drifting Unmastered D. TUCKER(blog)

“I’m still young. Time really goes. So does life so the time is now because it’s all we got….” – As the lyrics opens the first verse of Drifting.

Drifting is definitely going to be on my album whenever we release it (I’m aiming for the start of the summer…but production time will tell.). My true excitement can’t be fully expressed via this blog post; I’m feeling the growth. There’s a lot of work to be done before we upload the music for you though.

(Completing my album would be done faster if the bank account was prettier but it isn’t – for what’s needed is expensive; it’s usually that way when one seeks top quality.)

Nonetheless, I couldn’t be happier to be in the postion that I’m in. I feel confident with the themes of my music. I know the sounds / instruments that work best for me. I know where to go to get what I want production wise. I know the type of people (mother fucking awesome) who appreciates my music. I know a lot more than before but I have a lot more to learn. This shit isn’t easy. What’s missing is a solid distribution channel and a $50k budget to make the project nationwide-ubiquitous in a month’s span (nothing to Jay-Z but it’s a lot for me right now). A lot of ground work is to be done; keep in mind that I’m unsigned, and I’ve been doing everything thus far out of my lint filled pockets….and selling prints etc. (store.dwaynetucker.com)

But, I’m “Driftin’ in my zone.”

By the way, sorry for missing last week on the blog. It’s not like me missing a week will break the interent or anything but I’ve been better with showing up weekly the last few months; I needed a break before I burned myself out. This shit gets overwhelming but it feels good / is encouraging to know that I have a community of people out there in internet-land who are supporting, who still look up to me and tell me that I motivate them; people from when I was solely a full time photographer are still rockin’ with me on my music venture etc. So the apology is to you.

D. TUCKER in Studio

That’s me tired from being up the night before, then spending a full day in studio, working on this project that I hope to have my name more known, that I’m hoping people will feel inspire by my work, that I’m hoping people will be like okay this dude D. TUCKER is about it – flow and all…good music and all…, that I’m hoping will bring bigger projects to the table for me. That’s the plan. It will happen. One way or another.

Already this track sounds better than anything that I’ve released on my soundcloud – production wise and it’s not even mastered as of yet!

I told my engineer this is my resume, my portfolio; the CV must sound ready. I’m I’ll be using this project to connect with people in the industry that will provide leverage to making D. TUCKER the brand a house hold name in due time…when I say I’m out here Driftin’ believe that every move is one with hopes to see land ahead….I’m going after what I feel is there for me.

Each studio session is $85.00 / hour to complete a track from start to finish will take about 10 hours more or less.

If you don’t understand why one would spend so much on it, I don’t expect you to. If you understand that quality is vital or when you put your name on something then yeah…you know what’s up.

I’m not as known as the people who are known in the music industry as of yet but that can be changed over night by running into somebody and them liking a freestyle…or…use your imagination for some random shit…it happens….point is, when that day happens, if it happens that way or if it has to happen from me continuing to meet people one by one as I’m doing now, I want the quality of what’s to be put out from me from here on to be up to par. I strive for the best.

With that information said, I’m putting up this Paypal donation button with the hopes that people who enjoy my music / people who love good music, people who want to see me accomplish something, people who know that if given the right chance I’ll become something bigger than…something’s that’s really big….blah you get the point. Or for people who are just in some let me give away some money today mood…the donation button is below. You have no idea how much I’d appreciate the help. I’m doing everything I could do right now to bring in the paper to live, and fund the projects at the same time. Life is wild and your help is appreciated yo.

If you donate, I’ll send via email to you a copy of the unmastered track Drifting as well as keep you posted on when I’m recording the other tracks / share some with you, as well as remember you for when I make it super big, you’ll be invited to special events etc. as my guest because I never forget the people who help. (This is the first time I’m asking for donations with this new Paypal platform so I’m not sure if they’ll send your email or what but to make sure just shoot me an email to dwayne[at]dwaynetucker[dot]com telling me you did and I’ll send over the track.

 

Thank you for your help,
Dwayne

When I see the song “Blessings” (the tittle), then I look at the names of the artist, here’s what happens:

Kayne West, “Thank you Jay-Z…and myself.”

Drake, “Thank you Wayne…and myself.”

Big Sean, “Thank you Kanye…and myself.”

First, why “and myself.”, because it take a whole lot of frickin’ work to be thyself. As an artist / a human interested in self-improvement when you recognize the efforts / “bettering” of another artist(s), it feels “G.O.O.D.” and make you want to do alike dope shit (you know, bettering yourself, working towards the “blessings”, more importantly acknowledging the blessings, that kinda shit.)…and better.

A few people who come across my blog are hearing this track for the first time; to you guys, welcome. For whatever the internet seas drifted you here, again, welcome. (@DwayneTucker on Twitter – shameless plug but I want you to connect with me there if ya got it.) Today is “Music Share Wednesdays” on DwayneTucker.com, before you go, please share your thoughts in the commentary on the music shared.

Lastly before I leave you to finish the track, really listen to the content and take from it what is being said. Let it inspire you to be thankful and to do some “G.O.O.D.” shit.  Consider this track a “Blessing.”

Enjoy your evening if you’re reading live.

To the rest, all love,

D. TUCKER
