Aloha! I'm a Hilo Boy, Born and Raised in a little country town called Hilo, on the eastern coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, named Hawaii, and have Retired as a Fire Captain with the Honolulu Fire Department, with over 36 years in fire service =) I have always loved the 'arts' in all forms, and have been involved in the art of 'airbrush', but my most recent endeavor in the arts is via 'Photography'.

I have plans to pick up the airbrush again in time, but for right now, Photography seems to be my preferred avenue into the arts, and I would like to further my knowledge and spend time in this field.

I hope you enjoy this website. It's a place where you may view my past and most recent photography works. The majority of the works will involve our beautiful State, the 50th State of the United States, Hawaii! I pray you will feel my love for the Lord, Jesus and Life in it's entirety, and that you will be able to feel through my photographs the love and appreciation I have for "Everything" in my life. The nature of our islands is such that we are surrounded by beauty that can be positive, lifting, comforting, and peaceful...sights and sounds that is unique to only our Hawaiian Islands.

When I look at what surrounds us, I feel the Blessings that have been bestowed upon us here in the Islands. I am so grateful everytime I look through the lens of my camera...occasionally feeling overwhelmed with Love to the point of tears of emotional happiness, gratefulness and appreciation. It keeps me wanting to go back for more. I feel LOVE! I try to understand as much about our island home as I can. I am grateful, and appreciative of everything and all things that surround me and are part of my life, "our life". I try to become a part of it! I pray that you may be blessed also by what I have to show you through my photography, through my eyes, through my heart, soul and body, that is led and guided by the one and only Creator of all of this. I would like to thank you for spending your precious time looking through my site, and may it touch you in only good ways.

Be Blessed! Thank you once again! God Bless you all! Much Love and Aloha! Vern =)
