Nighted Life Presents: Marco Hernandez
Marco puts in work, and it shows. Here are his thoughts on theme music, hard work, and being the turnt the fuck up:
Break down your life story in one sentence.
Just out here trying to turn these dreams into a reality.
What do you look for when taking photos?
I look for things I find interesting and explain my life the way I want it to; everyone has their own story. Everything I come across on the daily, whether it be when I’m skating or just walking alone. I bring a camera with me everywhere I go, this way I don’t get bummed out on seeing something and not being able to take a photo of it.
How turnt up are you, on a scale from 1 to 10?
I’m fly as fuck- my turnt up rating is a 10, bruh.
Do you have a day job?
Yeah, I have had my share of shitty jobs here and there but I am just trying to hold on to whatever I have in order to get by. Life is expensive!
If you had to start your day listening to one song for the rest of ur life, what would it be?
I would have to go with ‘Lazuli’ by Beach House. I’d be happy and relaxed every morning if my entire life was a Beach House soundtrack. I bring my ipod with me every time I’m traveling, I hate the sound of people.
What does the Nighted motto “knowing better, doing worse” mean to you?
Just knowing all the things that you should be doing, but not doing them at all. YOLO.
Got any goals with your photography?
My main goal is to have as much fun as I can with it as possible. I just want to keep shooting photos of everything, whether it be an idea I had in mind or something that I come across.
What’s next for you?
Just keep taking photos and working hard every damn day. I’m always blowing my money on buying film, developing film, repeat. Hard work is about giving everything you’ve got into anything that you are doing, I don’t think money has anything to do with hard work- the payment is your result.
Shout out to Nighted for the opportunity to work on some shit together. Blood of The Young zine, much respect, those dudes are the shit and I’m down with everything they’re doing. The people of Williamsburg, Brooklyn that lurk my Tumblr photo posts. SUNDAYS, NYskateboarding.com. All of my friends for letting me take photos of them constantly even though I know it can be annoying having a camera pointing at you every moment. Trap-A-Holics mixtapes for giving my life meaning. If I missed anyone, I’m sorry, you can fuck me up later.
Check out his blog for more photos, and keep watch for some zines and other projects from Marco and Nighted!
