Mefi-Famous Photographer July 25, 2011 11:35 AM   Subscribe

There was a Metafilter member who took really nice pictures of Mefites at meetups. I think this was around 10th anniversary time. He was Mefi-Famous for awhile and folks may have been even planning meetups around his travels. I also remember a comment from him where he talked about some of his techniques. Anyone remember who this is?

I tried searching under different combinations of "meetup" and "photos" and am having a hard time narrowing it down.

Thank you. The username has been on the tip of my tongue all morning. Here's another Metatalk thread about him. Now everyone go and revel in the handsomeness and beauty of Mefites photographed by dashiv.

on non-clicking the links, I see that is the topic of the thread to which fake linked. Doh!

So ... what ever happened to that guy? He hasn't been around in almost 3 years.

I met dashiv at a meetup earlier this year (or maybe late last year) and he was doing fine.

You must feel the dashiv around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the lighting kit and the model.

DaShiv will not give any indication that he's attending a meetup until he's there, and then all of a sudden everything's so wonderful it doesn't matter anymore that you can't feel your nose and the wrong everywhere.

(Whenever I see him he seems well.)

Dashiv came to a Toronto meetup once, but as far as I know, the pictures from that meetup were never posted.

That's because DaShiv's camera stared to show people's most inner desires, how they die, etc.

This comment from klang might be helpful re dashiv's whereabouts.

I know this is x-files...but is it also twilight zone or outer limits?

In promotion of other MeFite photographers, liquoredonlife took some nice photos at MeTa10LA. A few are on Flickr.

carsonb: "DaShiv will not give any indication that he's attending a meetup until he's there, "

Actually we knew he was coming to the MeFi10Nola event, which is why the rest of us didn't bother to take too many pix, because it was very "all hail dashiv"

Every month or two I'll really get some DaShiv nostalgia - he was super active over at MeFight Club, too. Awesome guy, and I only hope he at least comes back for the upcoming presidential election. His analysis last time around was great.

odinsdream, that is terrible! I hope there is some kind of decent explanation and that you end up with your photos soon.

Yeah, he is a classy guy and his photos are the best. Hope he comes back to visit some day.
