Polaroids Are Back!

Instax_Camera_Dwayne Tucker_BLOG

Being that the Bahamas’s independence day is coming up (July 10th), I thought it would be cool to get a few of these Fujifilm Instax in the flag’s colors.

It’s amazing to see the love of “quick film” coming back.

We have them for sale, contact me if interested.

Happy #TuckerTuesday

Until next time,

A lil hello.


Gang what’s up? Look at me treating this Thursday like TuckerTuesday; that’s because I miss writing you all. I’ve been hella busy. I know there are guys out there who are a lot more busy than I, and they manage to run their blogs like the human connection machines that they’re meant to be. Those guys also have a lot more paper in the pockets, and accounts than I do – so when I’m take these big breaks just know I’m trying to make ends meet and shit; see me in ten years. Or if this single that I’ll mention at the end post do some damage over the next few months we can shave a few years off of the ten. A lot of ups, and finally more ups than downs, but I’m prepared because life moves in circles you know.

That’s me in the stockroom at EA; in the photograph above. And while at it with a shameless plug, we have the cheapest rates for the best studio in Miami, all Profoto lights as well. Email me if you need that.

For those following (and you should be following as well) on Twitter and Instagram you saw that over the past few weeks I stopped posting as often. I’ll be sharing more with you over the next weeks to come.

Even now as I write this I have ten more mins online then off I go.

Most importantly though, for me to wrap this up, this summer I’m releasing new music and a new music video as well. Thanks all I’m going to say until next time.

All love to all,

Big Boy #TuckerTuesday Toy! + I Always Feel Alive With Nikon

Farmvillie Yacht photographed by Photographer Dwayne Tucker

Far from a toy this beauty is.

NikonGang what’s what? I’ve been looking at your photographs on Instagram and I love.

IG Connect: dtuckerofficial

The water appeared calm, but the ocean is never still.

It was early. The fish weren’t biting, they were hungover. This is Miami. Perhaps too early for chum; this will sound dumb, but I believe the fishes were still drunk from the night before; this is Miami. “Better luck next time at brunch”, one fish said. We moved along.

(I can read this to you with a serious face. I hope you have a sense of reading humor.)

The water appeared calm; the ocean is never still. It was early (It is early. 2:30 a.m. I meet you again.) I stood as still as I could, camera in hand, we took the little boat, well, compared to this monster our 50′ seemed little. A few shots I took and this was the favorite photographed.

It was my second week out to sea. I’m no stranger to the water. However, I have great respect for the water. The ocean is huge. You are little; we are little; this yacht is little (not really).

Everything with time. That’s the thought when I think silently, “they say time is money.”

When I’m out there, these thoughts doesn’t matter. We are little on the ocean.

I felt free on the ocean. I always do.

Ocean or not. I always feel alive with a Nikon in hand; word to YACHTLIFE.

It’s late. I’m going to share this photograph on my Instagram; I’ll title it, “Follow The Light”.

On that note, good night; more photos to come; will be loaded to Instagram this week.

Follow me there and on my Twitter.

Drum Circle Photo, Updates + Happy #TuckerTuesday!

Drum Cricle May 2015 Photographed by Dwayne Tucker

I should be sleeping right now! Staying up hours like this, after a long ass day, a long ass evening, a long ass night, is loyalty to my commitment to the gang. This post will be shorter than the usual #TuckerTuesday post. It’s well after 2 a.m. I’m tired, and I have to be up again in a couple hours. With all the warm-up said, this type of tired feels so good; it’s a blessing!

I must give it to the guys that were here before me for the motivation. Guys like Scott Kelby, guys like Chase Jarvis, and alike (don’t stroke your egos you know who you are if you’re out there on the grind heavily). You know, the guys you ask yourself, “How / when the fuck do they sleep!” Seriously, it’s a strong commitment the “creative-hustle”.

To make life more challenging, the #NikonGang followers, and fans of my music who are tuning in (Follow SnapChat: dtucker305) see that I’m cooking up some stuff for the summer in the music department. – That’s another post but know that the tracks are akin the flames in this photo…hot AF!

Back to the photo – this was from Drum Circle Miami (May 2015).

Please share this link on your facebooks, and tag me in it please. I want to spread the reach so people who don’t know about Drum Circle will learn about it and participate / attend the good vibes, the love we share out there on full-moon nights in Miami. Also, the people who were at the Drum Circle might see themselves in some of my images. Thanks in advance for the share.

I’ll be posting at random on my instagram throughout the days.

Quick Update – In addition to all the awesome craziness going on, I’ll be blogging for! Follow their instagram as well – @electricavenue_superstore. Not only because they are my partners, and I work along with them, but I must say that the family of EA is a true blessing. I’m beyond excited about what’s on the agenda to interact / connect with the photography community / photographers in Miami. Our team is stronger than ever, and I’m super thankful to explode skills developed over the years while helping others explore their love for photography. Honestly, I can’t squeeze into this post how thankful I am to do some kickass shit for EA.

While on topic, congrats, again, to the winners of the EA gift-certificates from the #MIAPhotowalk April 2015.

Love to the photographers out there doing their thing in the city. Respect to y’all; respect to us.

To wrap this up, go ahead and follow me on Instagram and Twitter if you aren’t doing so already because they are the best ways to keep updated when I share the images etc.

Until next time.

#NikonGang what up! I’m serious about it; y’all thought “YACHT YACHT YACHT” got annoying, (well some did, I know; I peeped – now time to get mad because I’m going to grow the shit out of #NikonGang you non-Nikon shooter! (Still love somewhat though cause at least you are a shooter. – You’d think Nikon paid me to talk shit but they don’t; they should.)

I have a legit five mins to share this post before I head out because today’s schedule is worst than last week’s!

It’s going to be hella busy today. If you’re new welcome, if you haven’t seen part one of this post:


There’s the link. I hope you enjoy the rest of the images.



















Until next time. (P.S. This Friday on behalf of Electric Avenue I’ll be announcing winners!)

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



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.)



I was surprised by the 100+ people who showed up. Mad Love.

(Snapshot above was when I arrived to the meet-up point.)


(That’s M being M….in the beautiful-dope Beatles tee.)


(Anchors Everywhere On Everything! <3 )



(I wonder how many University of Miami students were out there…)



(Ima need to contact CanvasFab for a print asap!)



(V being awesome :) )


(Didn’t see much tripods but I’m happy he had his tripod and used it! – p.s. we have Manfrottos and Vanguards at the store…a few others as well.)


(Supporting the locals.)



(Need I say…Y_ _ _ _!)


(I’m ready to see these videos. Send to me!)














(This puppy is awesome!)










If you’re coming here from Insta…/where ever you’re migrating from, please share the link around.
I’ll see you next week for the follow up.

That’s all for now.
All Love and good night!

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.


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,

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.


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:

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 and show love.

Until next time,
All love,

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 – 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…


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,

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 – 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,
