My Sundaze with Rowan Daly

Rowan Daly Sundaze LA Inquisitor

Rowan Daly

My name is Rowan Daly, and I’m a fifth-generation Californian born in Los Angeles. My mom claims that I started my photography career when she bought me a fake Fisher-Price camera when I was two. Mom came home with my new baby brother, and all my aunts and uncles were taking pictures. I picked up my Fisher-Price camera and pretended to take cute portraits of my brother.

What is your favorite time of day during the weekend?
This is such a toss-up for me! There are weekends where being up for sunrise on Saturday morning are my favorite – either due to the Friday night festivities lasting till morning or because I’m up early to go surf with some buddies. That being said, it’s hard to beat a lazy Sunday afternoon.
What is the best compliment you ever got that you always keep close to your heart?
One of my favorite compliments came from an artist of mine who I’ve been shooting for almost a decade now. He said that he can instantly spot my work if he comes across it out in the wild. He mentioned that the intimacy in my portraiture is very recognizable. I took it to heart because, as an artist, I had always dreamed of the day where my voice will shine through my body of work.
Be real, what makes you smile the most?
For real, my boyfriend Grady keeps me laughing and smiling every single day.
The most expensive thing you ever splurged on that you may or not regret? 
I love buying silly things that light up. At this point, the amount of stupid things that light up around my studio has gotten pretty expensive and ridiculous.
What makes you feel like you?
When I’m shooting on set, and every look we do meets my vision…when I’m in my element as an artist, that feels genuine, and it makes me feel like myself.
How do you keep your cool in odd situations?
There is no shortage of odd situations as a photographer in Los Angeles. For starters, if you can’t laugh at yourself or your weird situations, you are doing it all wrong. Secondly, at the end of the day, I have to consider if this odd situation even matters or am I just surrounded by drama queens. Lastly, and this always works, if I return to an attitude of gratefulness, then even the odd situations contain some beauty and lessons learned.
What are the things that you first notice about a person?
As an empath, I usually pick up on energy first.  As a photographer, I usually notice eyes first.
Your most played songs right now? 
Here are my top-played songs that all my friends are sick of hearing me play:

“Obligatory Drugs” by Black Kids

“Pogo” by Digitalism

“Apple TV Remote” by Petey

“No Divide” by Sticky Fingers

Guilty pleasures.. name at least 3.
Punk Rock shows at dive bars. Below Deck on Bravo. Anytime I’m on a boat.
