The Inertia

Kaua’i is known as the Garden Isle, and for good reason. It’s a beautiful place, full of lush greenery and amazing waves. As the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands, it sits on the northern end of the archipelago, and is home to some of the best surfers on the planet. The photos above are an example of the beauty and the talent that the Garden Isle is responsible for.

I was fortunate to be raised on the white sand beaches of Kaua’i. Shortly after high school, I lost my leg to a large Tiger Shark. It was a blessing, though, as it brought me to photography, which I learned during my downtime when I was injured. I love everything about capturing images. Finding the light, building relationships, and seeking out the unordinary is what I base my passions on. In my spare time, I still surf (now with a prosthetic leg) and am active in shark conservation.


Only the best. We promise.
