Bringing fashion back to Iwilei!
Last October, I moved my company, Digital Film, into a warehouse on Ka'aahi Place, in Honolulu's industrial district, Iwilei. While I was looking for a home base for my documentary film business, there was enough square footage — and a high ceiling — to shoot still photos, too. That's how the Digital Film Studio came to be.
We're in the historic Von Hamm Young Textiles building. At one time, the area was part of the rail yard for the OR&L train line. At my front door, there's even a few feet of train tracks. Today, the neighborhood's kinda funky, but it is quiet and safe. In the aloha wear heydays of 1960-1990, a lot of the fabrics produced for companies like Local Motion, Surfline, Jams, and Hilo Hattie's were designed in this building. That's a lot of fashion history.
Today, I want to keep pushing the arts forward— I need to keep shooting! With over 100 Model Mayhem friends, I'm sure there are some of you who want to get some fresh images for your portfolio. Here's what I'm offering: each week, schedule permitting, I'll work with a couple of models in a Wednesday Workshop event from 4-7pm. You provide your own hair and makeup; or bring your own MUA if you like. We'll start with a headshot, then move to full-length. If there's time, we can drive to Chinatown for some golden hour shots. In exchange for your time, I will provide you with 5 edited images with my company's brand on them. (There 's small fee to have the brand removed.) FYI: I do NOT release unedited images. Use them as you like, on Instagram, website— whatever. I just want to create great images.
I hope that you can join me in a Wednesday Workshop soon. Please email me to confirm your session.
Thanks for being a Model Mayhem friend!
