“Enjoy the ride!” says photographer Mark Diamond – #YouWowMe 15

#YouWowMe 15 - Mark Diamond

Without a doubt, photographer Mark Diamond drives the hippest car in the Wynwood Arts District (the hippest neighborhood in Miami).

But when you get to know Mark, you realize he is a “study in opposites.”  For example, he is arguably at the cutting edge of 3-D photography (ask to see his new and awesome studio/gallery in Wynwood) and yet he drives a 25 year-old car…..for the last 17 years.  And what did he drive before his 1989 Chevy Caprice Classic wagon?  A 1983 Chevy Caprice Classic wagon…..oh, and both of them are white.

Or, if you ever run into Mark, ask him to show you his camera.  Why?  Last time I saw him, he was using a very nice, new Nikon DSLR but the lens was one he purchased in the 1970’s (Yeah, Nikon’s 40 year-old film lenses will fit a brand new digital camera.  Amazing!).  And the photos it produced were perfect.

So when I asked Mark what words of inspiration would he pass to the next person in the project, he said, “Enjoy the ride!” as in “Don’t worry, be happy.”

Mark is the 15th person in #YouWowMe – the first-ever photography project to combine portraiture and personal words of inspiration which are passed to the next person — i.e. a “pay it forward” of inspirational photography.
