Photo-Journalist Starts Online Community Blog Site

Updated: Jun 2, 2019


Daytona Beach Photo-Journalist has launched, "Deep Focus" an online community blog site. After years of photographing many community events, community leaders, national politicians, and activist, he realized there was a missing link in communication. There were several events going on around town that just weren't recognized. Mr. Fernandez decided to start a forum that would allow the community to come together and share ideas, thoughts and events.


Duane has been an active community leader for several years. He was featured in the articles, "Survivors of the Wreckage" in 1999 and in 2000 by the Hartford Courant News Paper highlighting his business and community endeavors. Read the article titled, Return To Hardnotts written by author Cindy Brown Austin.
