Each month I take the best of my photography and compile it into one contact sheet to share with everyone. All images are print worthy and would look amazing in your home or office. April was packed month! I spent the first 2 weeks with Katherine from NYC on an extended Date With Hawaii. A Date With Hawaii is a intimate tour of Hawaii with Jason, a professional lifestyle photographer and adventurer. Boiled down, it is an adventure tour for singles and couples who want an atypical Hawaii experience and bad ass photos to boot. A Date With Hawaii will be launching soon, www.adatewithhawaii.com
Below are some highlighted photos from April. My favorite photos are the ones of Hi’ilawe Falls, on the Big Island and the shot I’m dubbing “warrior arch,” a moving meditation black and white image with a hint of blue of a woman doing Tai Chi on a unique sea arch.
Photo locations: China Man’s Hat, Oahu; Hi’ilawe Falls, Big Island; Lulumahu Falls, Oahu; Prays Beach, Oahu; North Shore, Oahu; Warrior Arch, Oahu (west); Kalapana, Big Island; Onomea Bay, Big Island; Rainbow Falls; Big Island.
Prints are available of all images featured below. Contact me.

I am happy to present to you the newest in my Door Series entitled “Hana Komo Pae” which translates from Hawaiian to “right of passage.” I witnessed the scene you see before you only fleetingly on a cloudy day when I first discovered the Kaniakapupu Ruins. I was exploring somewhere off to the north of the ruins when the sun light had found an opening in the cloud cover and very briefly blasted through the forest and threw itself across the floor of what was once King Kamehameha III’s summer home. It was as if, for an instant, there was a door in the empty doorway and it had opened for just a moment for the ready traveler.
That moment was too brief for me to capture. Two days and four hours of standing in front of the door, I captured light. It really did feel magical. I did not walk through the door way while it was illuminated, the thought never crossed my mind. Would you have walked through the doorway?
I hope to see everyone at RAW Discovery on February 16th at the Aloha Beer Company. I will have many of my photos printed and on display and it promises to be a fun night. See attached for more information. You may purchase tickets here for $10 or directly though me. Tickets are $15 at the door.
Mahalo and thank you for supporting and sharing my work!
