I'm so fortunate to have had so much support since I founded Hokuli'i Images in Hawai'i back in 1999. So many beautiful family, friends, colleagues and clients who have helped me through the years. They continue to help me do what I love to do!
Along with the human support, I need to pay props to my other main peeps.... my equipment!
While going through my archives I found two documents that reminded me of my hard working tools. I felt a little pang in my heart as I really loved and miss these toys.
Here's my former 35mm FILM gear:
And, my beloved, Nani...my Contax 645 and her posse:
I have been told by my friends who have nicknamed me "Monica" from the TV show FRIENDS that I tend to be a little Monica-ish when putting together stuff like this. But look!!! If I didn't, you and I wouldn't be able to see the cool toys I had!!!
Yep, I could not have done this alone, that's for sure. No equipment, no photographer!
So THANK YOU to all of my hard working cameras, lenses, flashes, cords, reflectors, CF Cards, computers, card readers, and hard drives for doing what you do!!! MAHALO NUI LOA for helping me to capture the magic...
