You may know Carlos, you know, the tall skinny guy always at the Dojo in the red or blue gee? The one with the quick hands and feet when sparring. You may have never seen him without the gee, but did you know there was another side to him? I think it is time we expose who Carlos really is.

Besides many years of training in martial arts, he had something else he had wanted to do. One day he sent me a message. He asked about the process and such of capturing photos of him and wanted some information on what to do about that little thing he had an itch for. We talked and made a plan. I later met up with Carlos at Gizella Kopsick Palm Arboretum in St Petersburg, Florida. Gizella Kopsick Palm Arboretum is a beautiful park with exotic plams and cycards that sits along the Tampa Bay on the north side of the North Shore Aquatic Complex.

This park has lots of areas to use that you can capture multiple styles of photography at. We selected a couple of areas in the park and then got to work. First up is the Carlos that you and I know. The 2nd degree black belt in his red gee and posing in various stances. From Joon-Be to a flying side-kick. But this was the normal everyday stuff. We’ve already seen this side.

So let’s bring on the Carlos you do not know. Here’s the clean shaven, suit wearing, and casual posing model side of Carlos. We hope to be able to capture more of this side of Carlos in the future.
