Marco's Pizza Bahamas

I give credit when it's deserved. Marco's Pizza, quality and service, as of this date, is the best in the Bahamas.

While out in Bahamas working on content for SGIOV2 (Somewhat Good Is Okay Volume 2 - drops Feb 1st, 2012) I've been ordering a lot of pizza from Marco's Pizza!

I'm sharing this on my blog because I'm really pleased with their service. I'd make a call, get a welcoming greeting, usually from a lady with a nice attitude, flirt around with her for a bit to see if I could get a free pizza (it never worked), a few minutes later the driver calls for directions (I start and never have to finish because they already used to my location.), when the good reaches, the pizza is never cold, the cheese stretches as I pull the slices, I save what I don't finish, get back to writing, then about an hour later eat whatever slices are left.

If you want good pizza and you're in Bahamas I recommend giving them a try.

I weren't paid to write this about them, neither paid to photograph for them. I'm sharing as a fan of their quality because quality never fails to impress me.

Pharrell Williams' Inspiration To D. Tucker

Pharrell refers to himself as a big kid. Not because he's irresponsible or anything negative towards an adult being called a kid, but, it's because like a kid, his mind is always creative. I began following Pharrell and N.E.R.D.'s music from I were in high-school. They were different, I were different. He make music and was called Skateboard P;  I  make music and I love to skateboard. It's just the way shit is. I liked his music back then and now because his mindset is cool. The thing I love about the music Pharrell and N.E.R.D. music make is that they pack it with energy, energy that make you feel, energy that make you feel as if you're in the moment and it can also make you remember a moment, smell the colors / see the sounds.

As I grew older and learned a little bit more about life, I began to identify a number of reasons why I idolize Pharrell other than the aforementioned similarities. It is because he seem to always have the sexiest ladies around him! I'm just playing! Real talk though, it's because he honestly believes that he can do anything he wants if he puts his mind to it and I look up to that. That statement goes for both his artistic mindset and business ethics. My understanding to it all is to do whatever you do for a reason and let the main point of that reason be because you love doing what you do.

Quotes by Pharrell Williams:

"Wealth is in the mind and heart, not the pocket."

"I love making music, though. I love playing."

"So when I'm playing, I'm sort of painting a feeling in the air."

::Musician Inspiration's:: - This addition to my We Have Fun blog is to show my respect / share the musicians I've looked up to because they've inspired me in some way or another. Before I were a professional photographer, I were inspired by other professionals, later in my career I started to meet the people I read about and ended up collaborating with many of them. Summer 2011 I decided to pause my photography as a profession to continue / pursue my childhood dream / make a name for myself as a musician to share my music the world inspiring others to do what they want, when it feels right, if they love it.

Dear Misha,

Dear Misha,

I'm hoping me writing a letter to you publicly make you a little embarrassed. However, I'm also hoping it make you smile a little. It is super easy for me to send you a text or a lame phone call to tell you I miss you, after not seeing you / talking to you, in what feel like forever; so I decided to show you that I miss you this way.

If I were given the option to choose one lady on earth to be the official spokeswoman for my movement, Young. Ambitious. Creative. High-standard. Talented. Lifestyle. (a.k.a YachtLife), I would choose Misha.

Almost exactly one year ago this photograph of Misha and I was taken. Reflecting from now to then, both of us accomplished so much, and both of us are still in the hustle to accomplishing more.

This year Misha introduced her haute-couture-womenswear brand titled, ByMisha, ( to the world. I'm super happy for her! From I met Misha a few years ago, she have been working non-stop to get her designs the way it represent the brand; everything she described to me about her designs in the pre-production stage is on point! It's because of a few key reasons why I have high-belief Misha will be known as one of the worlds best womenswear designer: She's super talented, focused / her work ethic is impeccable and she's one of the nicest ladies you'll ever meet in your life if you meet her.

After photographing R&B singer Deborah Cox in the Summer I paused my titled as a professional photographer to pursue my childhood dream / a career within the music industry and I released my first mixtape (Somewhat Good Is Okay Volume 1) to the world. Earlier in the year I told Misha about what I were going to do, and from then I had her full support.

I've been in and out of Miami while recording volume 1 of the mixtape and as I write this I'm away again, as I write volume 2 of my mixtape. Even though there are twitter, facebook, cell-phones and Skype to keep in touch with your love ones, the downside of our operation is that the personal-reality-social life interaction is lessened.

 Misha, even though the weather is perfect out here in the Bahamas for winter and the body of water that I'm looking at look super beautiful with the moon light on it, as I write you this letter, it will never amount to when I hug you and see you smile every time we reconnect; I'm hoping it will be sooner than soon.

SGIOV1 | D. Tucker - Everything.

It's still about having fun.

The original caption for this photograph was, "D. Tucker with a lady sexier than you'll ever see."

This photograph was made a few weeks ago in Bahamas. Every time I look at it, it remind me of a line from my song "Everything"; the track from Somewhat Good Is Okay Volume 1.

The line goes, "But for now it's somewhat good chilling by the tide under the tree, this model and me..."

You can listen to / download the track for free here: Everything

The second mixtape, Somewhat Good Is Okay Volume 2 (SGIOV2) drops Feb 1st, 2012 but if you don't have the first one as yet you can get it here:

Curren$y's Inspiration

Quotes by Curren$y: 

"I'm independent fuck your system I get paid without it." - 

One of the most important reasons why I respect Curren$y is because of this line right here. He's a hustler and shaped his own path in history; a hard worker. He's also good with using the web so that's something in common with my movement. I didn't know much about Curren$y back when he were with No Limit and Young Money but that changed a couple years ago when I started following his music and his movement. His JETS movement motivated me to make my YACHTLIFE (Young. Ambitious. Creative. High-standard. Talented. Lifestyle.) brand as well; it only made sense to brand my community for the things we believe in; with that said Shout-out if you're a Jet and Shout-out to my YachtLife Fam! 

When I first learned about him , he were just this guy by the name of SPITTA and I was like wtf - haha!

Here's the story why: Many people (online) started to read about my name as Dwayne Tucker the photographer, when I was younger, before photography I used to rap and I went by the name -SPITTA-, it was only until up to a few years ago or so that I started going by the name D. Tucker, and Curren$y a.k.a. the Hot SPITTA had a lot to do with it. I weren't about to fuck with the legend's name. I know other people out there have the name as Dwayne and other people probably share your name as well. Curren$y shaped the name the way he wanted to, I respect it therefore I wasn't about to and I weren't about to be sitting down in my interviews battling / bickering about why my name's SPITTA as well. 

Besides, now you all know if you didn't know, "It's D. Tucker Motha ______!" 

However, the story behind my name as -SPITTA-: When I were a kid my father (before he passed away) used to go by the name SPITA (with one T); I called him that because he sang R&B music a lot. I decided to go by the name SPITTA (with two T's) like the roman II because I were Dwayne Tucker II so it made sense to make my music name SPITTA. I started to focus on my photography career until summer 2011 when I left photography of 10 years to leave my history within the music industry as D. Tucker. I'm more true to my music now than I were then so I'm going by D. Tucker, my name.

More quotes that help Curren$y inspire me, 

"This is a scary movie I'm in, but I do it for my folk who genuinely want me to win." 

"ODD number, you are not EVEN, on my level" - 

This quote for his word play. Amazing.

Above all though, I respect Curren$y / he inspired me because he keep it organic and share the stories throughout his much for the way they are; I haven't met him personally yet but if he's the way his music make him to be, I'll forever respect the G.

D. Tucker's Performance At Listen - In Bahamas.

Every Thursday at 8:30 p.m. at the Balcony downtown Nassau, Bahamas, a group of talented individuals get together at a spoken-word-poem-reading, open-mic, musician performance called Listen. I learned about Listen earlier in the year when I saw a video of a really good friend of mine / talented singer, Kamilah Gibson's performance at the event on YouTube. Almost a couple months ago now, when I visited the island was my first time visiting Listen. Ever since loosing my Listenginity I've been an nymphomaniac for the show. It made me feel so good knowing it were a group of young Bahamian artist (extremely talented) that put on an amazing show and are dedicated to meeting every Thursday.

Above is a video of a few songs that I preformed from my, Somewhat Good Is Okay Volume 1 mixtape at the Balcony for the show Listen.

Jimi Hendrix's Inspiration

Quotes By Jimi Hendrix:

"All I'm gonna do is just go on and do what I feel." -

When I did photography as a professional I abided by those words. I do the same with my music. It's amazing to  me when you do what you feel; so I do just that. This is a trait of Hendrix's character that inspired me. Forever.

"All I'm writing is just what I feel, that's all. I just keep it almost naked. And probably the words are so bland." - 

Here again it's about doing what you feel. I love to tell stories from what I feel and keep it 'naked' as well (an insider for the people who listened to my music).

"In order to change the world, you have to get your head together first." -  

The only way to change the world is to just live your life doing what you believe in. I fail to believe Hendrix knew that he were changing the world, maybe he did, maybe he didn't, I think if he spent as much time thinking about how to change the world rather than living his life he wouldn't have accomplished what he did. However, he did get his head together and did what he loved, no matter the consequences; who knows if what I'm doing for my own music will ever change the world or shape something new, I surly don't know but what I do know is that I'll continue to do what I love.

"Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music." 

"The story of life is quicker then the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello, goodbye." 

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace." 

"You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like heaven."

The last three quotes above are just simply amazing. In the commentary if you want to, tell me how do you interpret those last quotes, I'm curious to see what you think about them. Rest In Peace Jimi Hendrix.

Music Collage In Photoshop

Remember when the days were so simple? If you don't, then enjoy them while they are! You'll still enjoy them but things will start to get super busy / hectic but you'll still somewhat enjoy it because you'll still be doing what you love. I said somewhat because it does bring some bullshit along with everything being a creative as well but it's just the way it is. It feels super strange not being in Photoshop everyday like I've been for the past ten years. I'm enjoying the transformation from professional photographer to professional musician; it's all a creative hustle. 

I finished writing SGIVO2, my second mixtape (the first one is here for free download), so I had some free time on my hand and I decided to play around in Photoshop a little. This isn't an award wining piece or a piece to impress you; I were just chilling, listening to SGIVO1 and browsing Tumblr. If I heard a line in the song I searched Tumblr and the very first image I felt worked with the line I threw into my music collage. My goal was to press play from the start of the mixtape and make this collage in one shot without rewinding the music at all.

It was a fun little project that I wanted to share with you.

Drake's Comment

A really good friend of mine is one of the authors of the blog, Life Is Too Precious - So Destroy It.

I stumbled upon a blog entry she posted titled, For Everyone, which included a disturbing comment Drake made about Tumblr, 

“I’m really scared for my generation, you know. The thing that scares me most is Tumblr. I hate what Tumblr has become. Because it like, it reminds me of those clique-y girls in high school that used to make fun of everyone else and define what was cool, but in five years, when you all graduate, that shit doesn’t matter. No one gives a fuck about that shit. Instead of kids going out and making their own moments, they’re just taking these images and living vicariously through other people’s moments. It just kills me. Then you’ll meet them and they’re just the biggest turkey in the world. They don’t actually embody any of those things. They just emulate. It’s scary man, simulation life that we’re living. It scares me.”

 - Drake

I left a comment shortly after reading. 

"I'm NOT sorry but I somewhat disagree with Drake on this one. I'm a visual person, I like to be inspired by great images, I'm inspired by beautiful women, and I love to see awesome skateboarding photographs. Those are some of the things I reblog on Tumblr. The only part I agree with Drake on is "what it has become". That doesn't mean that he should (if he even has one) change the way he uses his Tumblr; if he doesn't have one, perhaps he should use it the way he think is the right way to use it. Hopefully, doing so will inspire others to do the same." 

- D. Tucker

I decided to share that on my blog with a positive response extension from Drakes, "Instead of kids going out and making their own moments..."

Before I go any further, to those whom are coming here for the first time I were a photographer for the last ten years but I paused my title as a professional photographer to continue a career within the music industry. As a photographer then and now, I look at images to inspire me, good photographs. So I guess I looked at them with a purpose to see somethings that would work I photographed the way I do and things that didn't work / to say, "Oh if I tried this way it would be like this if I did it." then I'll get up get out and do it. 

So Drake, I do agree with you on that part about kids not going out and making their own moments, that's when it become a problem. 

Follow My Tumblr

I think kids should use Tumblr to make a collection of the things they like and find people of similar interest, message those people, talk to those people and most important use Tumblr as an inspirational community. Not one where you end up being like the, clique-y girls in high school that used to make fun of everyone else and define what was cool..." I post about beautiful women because beautiful women inspire me to do everything that I do better (that's just the way it is),  I blog about skateboarding because I've been skate boarding from I were nine years old and it's a part of my lifestyle, the rest of the things are meaningful as well some for personal reasons and some for others / I may find a quote that will inspire an entire photo shoot or bring back a personal memory that will inspire an entire song. 

I'll be closing out on that.

The Good Life Miami (TGLMIA)

 The Good Life Miami a.k.a TGLMIA is a clothing line based in Miami, Florida. I was asked to photograph the brand a few months ago and the images would be used around the web / their facebook and for the brand's new look book. I took up the offer because of a few reasons: I heard a lot good news from friends about this up rising brand in Miami before hand and the guys who run the brand and their team are a gentlemen / businessmen / young hustlers like myself. It was awesome working with them and you already know, "We Had Fun!" cause that's what we do, "We Have Fun!" :)

Awesome results are the outcome when you work along with like minded people. It's something I did when I took on photo shoots like these and it's still something I do when I work with people now in the music industry. It's all about networking, but networking with the right people that share the same vision.

I hope you enjoy the photographs and I hope they inspire you to go out have some fun and make some images. I also want you to take a stop to their website: and check out some of their clothing (P.S. I just got word that they have some raw new snap-backs so yall look out for them and I already told my photographer he'll be making some portraits of me with the snap-backs when I get a hold of them!)

Until next Playaz!

Preparation Is Luck's Soulmate.

 The flyer you read above was sent to me from Miami, Florida's photographer Ace Noguera; Ace also shared the flyer with a bunch of other photographers. The way Ace and I met should be major inspiration for any photographer that struggles with networking - you should NEVER be shy to talk about what you do - be random! Ace and I met a few years ago at a skate shop in Miami, Florida. I was looking for a new skateboard and he walked in with an amazing tattooed sleeve; I got my first set of ink not too long ago so every tattoo I saw at the time amazed me. Other than tattoos, skateboards and great taste in women, Ace and I had another thing in common, photography. He was an up and coming photographer at the time. We exchanged contacts and I shared advice that got me to that point in my photography career; he spoke with passion about his photography and that was enough for me to help.  I'm happy to see him sharing his own advice / motivation materiel to other photographers. Remember we're all artist and we should inspire others / encourage others to hustle hard / photo hustle hard! Hopefully you'll pass this flyer on to a few friends of your own.

Now on to the second part and the point of this blog title!

Preparation Is Luck's Soulmate

When you become lucky and you're prepared, great things happen. The only way to be prepared for luck is to keep on trying to become better at what you do and like the flyer said: DO A LOT OF WORK.

I was asked to photograph RnB singer Deborah Cox for Vain Style Magazine; that photo shoot was also the last one before I paused my title as a professional photographer. A few years prior, I met a model  / stylist from on of my photo shoot sessions, did some photographs for her to use in her portfolio and she was the stylist for the Deborah's photo shoot. I share that because both of us "Fought our way through" to get to the point where we were in our careers so it was super exciting to work with her on that project.

Okay don't bitch at me for running off topic again just now, I got super excited to talk about that and you should be excited reading this inspiration information I'm sharing with you anyway and if you're not....then....anyway I'm going to continue :) (I love you all haha)

The photographs that you see in this post were from my visit to UM's radio station to premiere my Love It Hate It single and two other songs from my, Somewhat Good Is Okay Volume 1 mixtape. Kid Smooth, my DJ / Engineer for / of SGIOV, and I were ready for the lucky opportunity at UM because we've been putting in a ton of work recording and creating songs of quality content to share.

I write all of this to share, no matter what your art may be: painting, photographing, creating music, designing clothing - be ready / prepare yourself because lucks preparation's soul mate therefore they'll find each other when everything is ready. Have faith in your work / be true to your work and your work will be true to you.

Professional Photographer and Rapper (D. Tucker)

(Bahamian Artist Sammi Starr and myself)

Hello to the first timers, if you're new here, and to everybody welcome. For the virgins of my blog my name is Dwayne Tucker I've been advancing in photography for the past ten years. Summer 2011, I paused my career as a professional photographer to pursue a career in music. I've been rapping for as long as I've been photographing but any artist knows that it takes putting your everything into the art of your choice to become great at it. A little history of my photography back ground so I can speed you up for you to understand why I'm doing what I'm doing here / why I feel as if it's my duty to keep my ties to the photography community. 

When I were a kid I stayed up countless hours on the internet looking for great photography blogs and like you probably do if you're a digital photographer, looking for ways to become better in Photoshop. That's when I came across an important name that will change my life for ever, Scott Kelby. I stumbled on Photoshop User Tv, a online tv show / podcast for catching rabbits in the meadows - (I'm just playing!) It was for photo shop. I took to the show for a number of reasons, they were being themselves, they as in Scott and the co-host Matt and Dave at the time; they were having fun at all times on the show and sharing some beneficial information. From the show I found out that Scott had a blog, from I then started to read his blog, every time he posted. 

In high-school on weekends I worked at a store in the Bahamas that sold GE appliances. It was a family operated business and the owners of the store and the staff got along like family, it was just the way things were in the store; amazing. I say amazing because of one thing unlike any other similar work environment in the Bahamas allowed you to be you, once you did the work. The store opened up about 7:30 a.m., stated busy until about 9:30 a.m. then picked up speed around 11:20 a.m. Durning the hours that weren't busy I'd use my computer to kill some time, but I'd be reading blogs that I booked marked that shared information about the photography community. It was then I told myself that everyday I'd go to Scott Kelby's website and make sure he knew I was where. I commented and left my signature as Dwayne Tucker | Nassau, Bahamas. I got an email from Scott about two weeks of doing that, everyday, and he said he and his staff would be going to the Bahamas for business and he wanted to know if I'd spend the day to with them to shoot. In my mind it was like fuck yeah I'm I really reading this email! Scott to me is an idol in the photography game and he is like Jay-z / Kanye West / Pharrell / Cisco Adler / Shwayze is to me for music I'd be more than excited to hit the studio up with them to record; you get the picture, I was super excited canceled all plans and took the opportunity.

In high-school a friend of mine and I played golf on the weekends, he were really passionate about golf. Years later I'm still friends with the kid, he saw that I'm making moves with my photography and shared with me that his little brother is also into the same thing. That was about three or four years ago. I take mental note of everything therefore I started to watch his brother and see if he truly wants to be a photographer. On facebook I saw that he got a Nikon, I shoot with Nikon. Scott Kelby shot with Nikon so I started shooting with Nikon and stuck with it after using a Canon and fell in love with Nikon's shutter sound. If you shoot Nikon you'll know what I'm talking about. 

Fast forward a ton of observations, my friends brother and I started skateboarding together because the skateboarding community isn't as large in the Bahamas so all of the skaters know each other. I then spoke to him about photography told him that I'm moving into my dream to become a famous musician and offered try to teach him what I know about photography. I also told him that the major lesson in photography is observation and personality - if you're under 20 years old in 2011 then just call the shit observation and swag so you'd get the picture. 

The photographs that I posted here is a collaboration with photographer Edward Kemp and I; you'll notices my editing style and on about one or three of them my composition style because I edited the photographs. I want you guys to welcome Edward to the world of photography here in my We Have Fun community because he's the chosen photographer by me that I'll grow to make him the photographer that he'll become and I want him to become good enough so I can make him one of my private photographers when I make it to that level of touring my music etc. (Don't bitch at me for not taking a breath just now that sentence was the most longest sentence!)

I'll close on that note with a, continue to have fun with your work, live it up and a YachtLife that's all playa! - D. Tucker (YachtLife is my movement for my music it stands for Young. Ambitious. Creative. High-standards. Talented. Lifestyle.)
