Modern Luxury Hawaii is out on the stands with some very tasty features featuring some photos of mine!  They feature the ever composed chef Isaac Bancaco of Ka’ana Kitchen fame and a full page opener on MIGRANT, Chef Sheldon Simeon’s new Wailea restaurant.  I loved shooting both stories and even got to try some of their amazing fare.

The May/June Issue of Maui No Ka Oi magazine featured a photo taken by myself and Art Director John Giordani at Mama’s Fish House. It pictures their signature stuffed Mahi Mahi dish. I love the bright colors in the copy and title that compliment the photo. If any of you dine at Mama’s, this is the entree to order!

Shooting the Dec Cover for Maui No Ka Oi was fun – as always – especially since I was with Art Director John Giordani. He brought the festive props and made it just a bit Hawaiian with a few mac nuts. I must say, we sampled one of these amazing pies and were floored with how tasty it was! The kicker: There’s a ooey, gooey puddle of caramel in the middle. YUM! To the right is another option we took for the cover but the chocolate pie stole our hearts. Happy Holidays!

I recently shot artist Sandra Clark for Wailea Magazine. Her work was stunning and saturated with color and her light filled home was the perfect backdrop for the shoot. I haven’t seen the publication but it should “hit the streets” (of Wailea) soon! Her works can be seen in person at Napua Gallery at the Grand Wailea Resort.
