This new design from AMMDI is called “Lei Aloha”. I did a quick google search of, “Lei Aloha” because I was curious to what it meant and it came back as, “Leialoha” (no space), which interprets to a Hawaiian name for babies meaning “beloved child”. This design dropped specifically for the women. AMMDI released this design in store already but soon to drop at their online store. The design only comes in one colorway, but there are 4 different styles you can choose from with a few color options for each style. Crop tees come in beige and white, crop long sleeves come in white and red, racerback tanks come in black and charcoal, and lastly the muscle tee only comes in white. Don’t sleep on these though, because I just got word that the crop long sleeves are SUPER LIMITED! So if you’re interested in copping this for yourself, you can find it at Pipe Dreams Surf Co. at Pearl Ridge Uptown near Ross or just wait for these to drop online real soon.

I wanted to change up the scenery from what the team and I normally do. What I had in mind originally was to do something street (which I love shooting) but I had a feeling the team wanted to shoot something different lol. I had no story line for the shoot, no theme because I couldn’t think of anything. My mind drew blank so it was just a “normal” shoot. During the shoot though, little bits and pieces of ideas came to mind of how some parts of the video should go so it wasn’t totally “theme-less” lol. It turned out to being a (if I HAD to name it) nature-ish vibe…..continue reading
Where are y’all planning on shopping this black friday?! If you’re planning on heading to Pearlridge, then you’ll get the chance to cop this new drop from AMMDI! Their Signature Tee’s along with all the other goodies that they carry. You’ll be able to find it at Pipe Dreams, Uptown side of the mall, so don’t say I didn’t tell you about it! I know black friday can be one hell of a hectic “holiday” but why else would y’all head out in the wee hours of the night scrambling for those ridiculous deals you can’t find on any other day of any month?! Be safe out there and have fun shopping! If you’re one of those that hate crowds and don’t even wanna bother going out and rather chill in your comfortable bed and get a good night’s rest, then you can cop this at their online store! I’m not sure if they’ll have some cyber Monday deals happening because I haven’t gotten word of that, but check up on them and maybe they will have those deals too.

This shoot wasn’t even supposed to happen if Kerah didn’t bring up the idea because originally I had contacted her on a totally different idea. I won’t give away the details of that one because it might end up happening one day so keep a look out. But due to our conflicting schedules, we couldn’t meet eye to eye, so it got pushed back. Originally, I tried scheduling the shoot before leaving to a trip to Bali in September (you can find that post here in my journal), but the date I chose, Kerah already had a shoot reserved for that day, so she suggests pushing it back to October. Then she also brings up the idea that we should do a “holiday” one, so I thought, “why not shoot a Halloween one?!”…..continue reading and WATCH THE VIDEO
This is Jessica Sunok. An upcoming model who’s making a name for herself and I should add she’s coming up quick. She’s a winner of both Spocom Anaheim and Tuner Evo Philly bikini competitions. I mean I wouldn’t doubt her winnings. She’s friendly in person and easy going too. She’s hella professional and obviously ain’t a stranger in front of the camera. After the shoot, one of my homie’s that I shoot with, Kalen, brought up the fact that Jessica resembles Selena Gomez. I never thought that before meeting her but after going through and editing her photos, I could see exactly what the homie was talking about lol. So if you ever get to work with Jessica, she’ll be the closest you’d get to meeting Selena Gomez if you don’t ever think you’ll actually meet the real Selena Gomez lol!
By the way, did you know Jessica’s a HUGE sriracha lover?! See her photos & video and also get to know Jessica a little bit more by clicking the photo above or clicking here!
What’s good people?! It’s been a month since I last shot with my girlfriend! This time, her cousin was in town and decided to get in on a shoot too. Her cousin, Xhayne, now living in the North West in Washington, is visiting her home town. Just like Shaz, she too is into fashion and likes to doll herself up. Not only did we take photos, but of course video as well, but this time I took it upon myself to TRY and direct most of the whole thing. Came up with a story line and everything lol. But with the help of the homies, BSVid & Kalen, this wouldn’t have even been possible without their videography skills. Click here to peep the feature and FULL video or click on the photo above.
For those living in Hawaii, have y’all heard about AMMDI aka Aloha Made Me Do It? Wait why am I even asking that question?! Of course y’all heard or seen that brand at least once. If you’ve been living under a rock or just play games all day and have no clue what AMMDI is, it’s a local lifestyle brand from Hawaii making waves through social media and even possibly a store near you! Reason I’m bringing the brand up is because of this woman right here! Kerah is the HBIC of that brand! She’s currently a fashion major at HCC (Honolulu Community College) and has plans of transferring to FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) in LA to expand her knowledge and skills in the fashion world.
I first met Kerah through my partners, Brandon (BSV) & Kalen (kshotz), on one of AMMDI’s swimsuit shoots. Prior to that, we only chatted lightly through instagram after she saw some of my shots I did with other girls that were sporting one of her 1 piece swimsuits. Then the team and I helped a bit with another shoot for her line and after that I thought, “why haven’t I ask Kerah yet to shoot?” So I asked her one day and she was down for my ideas and here it is!
Wanna see what we cooked up for this shoot? You’ll definitely wanna see the video too! Click on Kerah’s photo above or click here.
From what Michelle has told me, this was only her “second” shoot she ever did. I find that kind of hard to believe because from the photos and working with her, she did such a good job! I think she lowkey does hella shoots but doesn’t want to admit it lol. But say I was to give her the benefit of the doubt, then this “second” shoot that she had with me and the crew went well beyond our expectations. See how everything went by clicking on her photo above or clicking here.
This is Michaela, aka Kayla. A 21 year old college student who moved to the island from Fairbanks, AK to take up political science at UH. Although amazing at what she does when she’s in front of the camera, off camera, not only is she smart, but she’s hella friendly, easy going, and over all a chill person to hang and make conversations with. I typically found her through instagram, basically the biggest directory out there when looking for someone to shoot with lol, and just dm’d her to schedule something. Some months down the line, here you are checking up on what the team and I curated from the shoot we had with Michaela this passed weekend. I’ll let her feature do the rest of the talking.
Check it out by clicking on her photo above or click here. Not only is it filled with tons of awesome photos, but also the sick video coverage my partners brewed up!
Linked up with @msjazzminerie one day after she hit me up to shoot mentioning she liked my style of shooting. Before, when I first started photography, I thought shoots at the beach were the best things to do, because I mean we live on an island and it’s not that hard to find a nice beach to take pictures lol. But as I grew more with my photography, I thought beach shoots were so cliche. Typical. Basically what you assume to see when you hear of photographers from Hawaii. I decided I wanted to stray away from the beautiful beaches (don’t get me wrong, shooting at the beach will turn out beautiful pictures) and showcase the streets of Hawaii instead. Going for a more urban look now days. I still shoot at the beach here and there but my niche now is the streets. Check out Jazz’s photo set by clicking here or clicking her photo above. Don’t forget to follow her and myself as well on instagram!
