Monday’s Eye Candy- Edin Chavez!

Edin was born in Chihuahua Mexico, where he lived for 12 years. At the age of 12 his family moved to California and Nevada followed a couple years later where he lived most of his adult life. Since a very young age Edin has had a fascination with photography, at the age of 18 he got his first 35 millimeter manual camera. Over the years he has moved to digital and has a rather interesting style.  Edin has been all over the world and his appetite for traveling and discovery only grows with the years. Edin currently resides in Miami and through his photography he shares how he sees the world. Enjoy.   Interview:  What does the word Photography mean to you?  Edin: Photography is when the photographer disappears and you are left with something you can relate with in a personal level.  Favorite place to shoot?   Edin: I love abandoned places. I love the mystery that goes with it, but I truly love shooting anywhere anytime.   Favorite photographer?  Edin: I have too many to list.  Favorite food?  Edin: Mexican food for sure.  Favorite things to do besides photography?  Edin: Cook, Ride Motorcycles, Billiards, Hang out at the beach with my dogs.  Any advice for all the aspiring photographers out there?  Yes, take your camera everywhere you go, there has been so many times I wish I had my camera. Once the moment is gone is gone for ever and you never forget.  I take mine to the grocery store, true story.   If you enjoyed this post, leave me a quick comment, ask me any questions, share with your friends or Subscribe by Email. Thank you for dropping by.

Edin started following me on twitter right after I tweeted about the Eiffel Tower 2.5 years ago, and the rest has been as they say: Pho·tog history.

Edin was born in Chihuahua Mexico, but lived most of his young adult life in Reno, one day without hesitation he decided to venture off cross country with his camera,  and by the time he turned around he had already settled  into a cozy little loft on South Beach, making Miami  his most precious muse yet.

I had been in search of a photographer for what seemed like forever, only because everyone in the social media world needs one, there’s no point in being a network junkie and not have photographer in your circle, it just doesn’t make any sense.

Out of  the many people I could have possibly come into contact with, I’m glad I now have him in my life, he is absolutely amazing. Last summer I had a choice between a NYC, LA or Miami photographer for the NOH8 Campaign picture: A La Risky Business, and once I was given the OK, I just had to go with Edin.  It would’ve been completely ridiculous of me not have picked him for such a campaign.

Like most people who come to Miami looking for inspiration, Edin has planted his roots in this beautiful city.  Don’t be surprised if you find him around  town doing fashion shows, climbing a building in Mid-Town for some crazy tutorial, jumping in a plane for some serious street photography, or simply laying low and taking shoots of the sunset.  Also you can find his work by checking out his page, following him on twitter, and ‘liking’ him on facebook.

Monday’s Eye Candy – Dr. Drew Pinsky

I’ve decided theres no better time like (post-rapture) to feature this Celebrity Dr, since he’s The-Go-To Guy for all the looney’s of the world.  He was actually number 15 on the list after it was brought to my attention that: Hot, Tall, Mysterious and Sexy… aren’t always the attribute many look for in someone.  Most happened to think that Dr. Drew is attractive, and I have also learned that Dr. Drew is considered to be “SEXY”.  So after receiving email’s, and a wall post’s on my fb about him, I figured why not give him a chance.  Now in doing so, I have discovered that I reconnected with the love for geeks, like I had had once upon a time, when I used to stay up for MTVs Loveline.  You would think Adam Corolla would’ve caught my eye, with his arrogance but no… the Doctor did.  Shortly thereafter I lost interest in MTV for a while, and so it happened that I lost interest in Dr. Drew as well.  But this shouldn’t stop him or anyone from making it on to the spot,  here you go ladies, the first real doctor to make it on to Monday’s Eye Candy, Dr. Drew Pinsky.  Jennifer and Annabelle this ones for you, Enjoy!
