I started writing this weeks ago and got too busy to finish it...so here's a quick post featuring the fabulousness that is the Jan/Feb/Mar 2015 issue of Kikaha by Island Air. I may be biased regarding its awesomeness because it's my first cover! Last year marked the first time I was ON a cover (HAWAII Magazine's Outdoors Issue - truly hilarious as I am clearly no model) but this time I SHOT it! And even better, the model/subject/author is my dear friend and writer/chef extraordinaire Jennifer Hee aka Lady Awesome.
I'm excited because the magazine looks great, the paper feels rich and hearty, and the articles are thoughtful and well-written. You'd expect nothing less from Nella Media Group, the people who bring you publications such as FLUX, Foundry, Room + Service, and more. You have to fly Island Air to pick up a copy of the magazine, so go book your tickets now!
You can read Jenn's full article here: The Infinite Yield of Foraging - unfortunately, not all of the photos are shown. I disabled comments on my blog but feel free to profess your love for her raw and beautiful writing on my facebook page. :) Seriously, she's my favorite writer. (I did a quick mental scan through my immediate family to make sure that comment wouldn't offend anyone.)
I'm posting more photos from the shoot that didn't make the cut. SADLY, the baby goat triplets didn't make it either. I know these look very similar to my previous foraging and baby goats photos, but I swear they are all different!
I was fortunate to contribute photos to two articles in this publication - the second is Jon Letman's Making a Mark featuring Patrick Dougherty's incredible stickwork sculpture at McBryde Botanical Garden on Kaua'i. The talented John Hook took the "making of" photos and I shot the finished sculpture. I'll share more on that story later because it is worthy of its own post.
I hope you enjoy the article and photos. Many thanks to Jenn, Anna, and the NMG team for this opportunity!
