Hands down the most important aspect of any photograph is it’s ability to invoke an emotional response. This response is what gets you to look longer at some photos than others, maybe even decide to buy a print and hang that photo on your wall. The response can be anything from happiness to the blues, warmth to chill, serenity to horror.  It could inspire curiosity or a call to action.  It could simply be a cat video saying “cute” or a food photo that makes your mouth water.  If you can provoke a feeling to a photo other than “boring”, then the photo is succeeding on some level. The stronger the emotions invoked, the more successful the photo and the longer you’ll remember it...

Kauai is an example of one one of many places this world has to offer. A world of countless discoveries and countless adventures. A world that if you just look a little closer there are as much, if not more good then evil. A world I'm exited to show my son. . .

This was the scenario: ICE-CREAM vs SUNSET. I was driving down the road with @jessi_87 on a ice cream mission. Kauai gifted us with an amazing sunset 🌅. Let the argument begin lol.

I love waterfalls. I don't shoot them enough! I can stare at a waterfall as long as I can stare at a fire. I think it's the power that impresses me. And the fact that there is no off switch to waterfall. That's what I think about when I stare at waterfalls lol. Is the weird? . . . This was shot during BabyMoon Ep.2 (link on bio).

When you have an idea, all you need is a plan, patience, and a couple friends ... You also need to be willing to wake up early as f@&k, risk your camera with uncontrollable waves, and have friends balance on a beam on one leg while fighting the wind ... but like I said.

It's been awhile since I've posted. We live in a world where providing with daily content seems to be a must. This isn't necessarily a bad thing as long and your content is good quality to your standards. Quantity vs quality type of thing. . . . Providing you with daily QUALITY content with both my photography and cinematography is a goal of mine. And it excites me knowing it is a reachable goal. It's what I want to be when I grow up. An artist. . . . Till the day I die, THE WORLD WILL BE MY CANVAS and SOFTWARE WILL BE MY BRUSH. Remember the beauty of this world with my photography … Relive the moments with my film.

Photographers sometimes do get lucky. @jessi_87 was upset we were in the apartment most of the day on a Saturday. You just don't do that living in Hawaii. If it wasn't for her very appropriate rant we wouldn't have gone to this temple, enjoy the islands sun and feed hungry birds… Love this shot!

The girl in the photo said to me, “This world is meant to be shared”. That stuck with me. We are always looking for the next epic, beautiful, breath taking spot that sometimes we forget the people we meet along the way. Once you move to Hawaii you will quickly notice a couple things: How close the locals are to their family and the island, ohana is no joke. The adventures you can find on this island of 22 miles long is overwhelming. It's an island that constantly teaches you things about yourself and what a beauty the world can be if you just open your eyes. . . . But where there is good, there is bad. Which is normal. Always know that. You will also find on this island people that hate what you've discovered. People who want to keep locations they find secret. That's understandable. I can respect that. Maybe people trash the place and don't respect these hidden gems like one should. I get it. But let me tell you what I've observed.. . . . True locals love their island, more than anything. They might hesitate to show you around at first, but that's because they are getting to know you. If they think you're a good person with a good heart, they will show you their true love for the island and most importantly the culture that drives that love. You can't just move to hawaii expecting every door to be wide open for you. Sometimes you have to knock. .

There’s something so peaceful about escaping the hustle and bustle of city life to take a walk in the woods and hear nothing but the sound of mother nature. There’s nowhere else I would have rather been that evening then right there in those woods watching the sun play peek a boo amongst all the giant swaying trees. It calmed my soul in such a beautiful way...

If you've done your share of traveling, you know there will be people trying to sell you anything, especially in a touristy area. My default answer is, no. I brush them off, which I did to this man in the photo. Not only he called himself Captain Dan he asked where I was from and after I said Hawaii he told me he was a linguist for the US Army during the Vietnam war. Now that caught my attention. After I talked and got to know him I took up on his offer and got on the boat. He promised me that I will see a beautiful sunset... we'll see 😎.

I plan to retake this picture (but better) because I didn't like how I composed this shot. I've walked through the local market everyday now. And I swear this old lady 👵 hasn't moved an inch.
