9 Subjects - 4 Islands

Regular readers will remember that I did quite a bit of traveling around the state last month... mad dashes to catch flights... rough, wet ferry channel crossings... Big Island circumvention... unfamiliar stylists, off-road adventures... 

All the action the result of being commissioned to photograph testimonial style portraiture of some really nice folks interested in seeing our, now, most senior US Senator succeed in his current re-election bid. Daniel Inouye seeks another term in office and has retained Honolulu advertising giant Laird Christianson Advertising, now known as LCA-Anthology to aid in getting out the word of all the great and essential projects the good Senator has successfully provided much-needed funding for, from Saddle Road reconstruction to agriculture to high-tech ventures around Hawaii. LCA-A, in turn, commissioned us to produce a bulk of the images for the campaign which have probably been arriving already in your mailboxes.

CTL would like to send out a big & hearty Mahalo to LCA-A, to Creative Director DC and especially to Producer Tai and Associate Producer Jennifer for trusting me to get the job done, for the outstanding coordination of subjects, schedules, travel arrangement and other asundry details. Another big Mahalo to all wonderful people I had the chance to meet & photograph. Your kindness, willingness, flexibility and cooperation made the assignment truly a fun experience. Special thanks go out to "Oboy" on Molokai for the tour of the slaughterhouse, the constant humor, the introduction to your family and the tasty watermelon eaten beachside! Molokai Stylee!
