Our third day in Bali and took the shooting at the public pools. This place we’re staying has hella spots to shoot at! I just wished we had time to hit all those spots but unfortunately we don’t. But check it out by clicking the photo above or clicking here!
Here we are in Bali! Of course y’all know we had to shoot while on this vacation. The place we’re at is super nice and so many hot spots to shoot at. It’s a gold mine for photos/videos. This was all shot this morning after breakfast. After shooting we took advantage of the pool because it’s hot af here too lol. Click the photo above to see the rest of the set or click here. I’ll be adding more to this set and updating daily of everything we do on our vacation. Check out my journal too for misc. vacay stuff. This is just the start of it!
Over this past weekend, my girlfriend’s family was back home on the island, from WA, where they reside now. We did a whole bunch of fun stuff while they were here and for the last weekend, they rented a beach house out in Makaha. It was a tropical getaway. I didn’t want the weekend to end! The view was great too so we had to take pictures while we were there since we probably would never go back there anytime soon! Check out the set by clicking on the photo above or click here. I’ll be posting a bit more in my journal touching on some things from the beach house. So look out for that!
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.
Since time free’d up this Sunday, the girlfriend and I decided to shoot since it’s been 3 months since the last time we shot with each other. Styled in AMMDI’s 1 pc. swimsuit underneath, with a denim jacket over, and stockings, both from Fashion Nova, and Boots from Forever 21.

Got to help out on another one of AMMDI’s shoots this passed weekend which consisted of a skateboard theme. Their clothing inspired by the legendary skate brand, Thrasher. This time there was a whole squad of people there for the shoot, including some local skaters that were at the park who were included in the shoot.

This bubbly spirit is Skye aka Kaululani. I don’t even wanna think about or type out her whole name because 1) it’s hella long lol and 2) when she said her full name in person, I got lost in the Hawaiian language like I was back in elementary school just starting to learn about Hawaiian studies lol. Anyway, she reached out to me after noticing my previous shoot with Michaela. I love meeting and working with new people, especially when my work does the advertising for me lol. Right off the bat when we met up at the location, I could tell she was gonna be super chill and fun to work with. Very professional at what she does but also playful that the shoot wasn’t strictly the sound of the camera going off. Get to know more about Skye by checking out the rest of her feature by clicking her photo above or clicking 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.
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!
