Juan Rodriguez

I shot a portrait of local surfboard shaper/maker Juan Rodriguez recently for Sarasota Magazine.  The article is about his stand-up paddle boards that he sells through his company One World Surf Designs, but he had a bunch of other cool stuff at his shop as well.  I’ve actually been surfing one of his older boards, a 7′ 6″ Funboard that my dad bought from him years ago when they played baseball together.

Super nice guy and really easy to work with.  I had few ideas of how I wanted to shoot him and I brought my little Lumedyne kit for lighting but it decided that that was the day it was going to stop working so I ended up just walking around his shop and office shooting him in natural light as he gave me a loose tour and talked about his various projects.
