A while back, I photographed a story about Haleakala, the volcano located on the island of Maui. This is a very popular tourist destination where people go to watch the sun rise or go for a hike in the gorgeous volcanic crater. It is also a sacred place for the native Hawaiian people. I had the good fortune of not only landing the story on the cover of Smithsonian, I also gathered video and audio for a multimedia piece that was subsequently edited by the team at Smithsonian Magazine and published on their web site. There is now an HD version of the final piece to my web site as well as my Vimeo channel. I’m very proud of this piece as it was extremely difficult to produce. I gathered all of the sound in the field. I shot the video footage at the same time I was shooting stills. It was not an easy task, but I was thrilled to have the opportunity to do so for such an amazing publication.
Aloha and mahalo nui loa for visiting my blog!
