DJ LaDez

DJ Photo Information

DJ LaDez started shooting photography professionally in 1989 with occasional weddings, portraits and commercial photography.  He has worked assignments in Europe and America but is willing to travel to tropical islands as well (call soon, please).  DJ has had the pleasure to work with famous people who taught him a lot of different ways to win awards and be famous.  He has also worked with thousands more “no-bodies” who taught him how to fight the good fight in the trenches when you are working alone and short on time.

 

DJ is the only active photographer who is running a flash manufacturing company in the world.  The other corporate flash company bosses are CEO types where DJ is quite the “normal photo guy”.  DJ has taught hundreds of seminars about advanced photographic lighting techniques and no two are ever the same, even at the same event space on a different day, just like real life.

 

This combination of experiences along with his own shooting experiments have given DJ a massive collection of knowledge about location lighting (that applies equally in the studio as outdoors).  He tries to download so much variety and information that it’s fortunate for some that they can also just play with the Lumedyne equipment and shoot their own style of images after DJ’s brief introduction to lighting techniques.

 

The big thrill for DJ is seeing the spark of understanding zapping between a photographer’s eyes.  Since many of the attendees are professional photographers, these are often “oh-yea?” moments more that “oh-my!” moments but the idea spark is planted and can grow from there.

 

DJ says, “There is no right way to create a picture; other than the way that makes your customers ask for more… and then you can also ask for more in return.”  When DJ is not on the road internationally, he consults with many photographers worldwide by phone and Skype from the Lumedyne factory.  Lumedyne is the only lighting company with a USA toll free number and the only flash company where a human answers the phone during normal business hours.  This is a reflection of who DJ is.  He is a photographer who appreciates good tools that help him write with light.

 

DJ owes appreciation to his long time sponsors including but not limited to: Tamron, Pocket Wizard, Sekonic, Lightware, California Sunbounce, SunSniper, Chimera, Photoflex, Westcott, Porter Case, MorePhotos.com, and let’s not forget the staff who makes DJ’s promises come true at Lumedyne.

 

DJ has demonstrated the use of dozens of different brands of cameras and flashes other than his favored Nikon and Lumedyne combo because, “A camera is a camera and a light is a light, but knowledge is power!”
