here comes summer

60020017_edit_smOkay, so the title may be a little off as we’re on Guam so its perpetually summer here! But we still hold to the tradition of prepping for the summer and as such get excited for it, no more school, longer days… well somewhat longer days…. and friends, family and others flock to Guam for Summer! And so begins my “quest” for more content for my site IslandBikini.com et al!

IslandBikini.com has a simple premise the women of Guam in bikini’s though these days because I have had several requests we will add on a section of men, not necessarily in their bikini’s but frolicking in the beach, as it were! =)

Enjoy this selection I have shot already and some behind the scenes from me and some of the guys and stay tuned for more!

Happy Summer!

Krystal Klear

43970023_edit_smI’ve known her since we first met on MySpace. Yes, that long and yes I said MySpace! =) Some of you may know her as the sax player or the torch singer et al. Some even as one of the contestants from the Miss World Guam 2014 pageant. More may know her as Krystal Paco, the newscaster, the one who can run faster than the cops in  heels. But I know her as one of a few I count as a very special friend but moreso as my muse, these are our recent collabs. Enjoy!

love me like you do

DSC_8122_editI sit here, once again in what is apparently my favorite cafe, listening to the Cinderella soundtrack, wonderful movie by the way and I am moved and inspired, inspired to write music as well as put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard as it were. I watch as people file into the cafe, one by one, to get their caffeine or sugar fix. Its amazing how much one can glean just by watching people, sitting patiently and watching.

And, whilst people watching, a familiar feeling; a pang, of wonder, if love will one day come. I wonder if one day it will come once again break through this wall and save me from this seemingly lonesome experience that life is currently.2014-11-10 18.39.51-1

I do find myself on occasion longing for her, but I don’t know if it is so much a longing for her or as a longing for what once was. Its strange but earlier when the breakup was still “fresh” whenever I saw old photos of her, of us, it hurt, but now several months later, 6 months and about a week later to be exact, as I see old photos and peruse, lost in the what once was, I realize, it; like all other memories have become just that, memories. DSC_8921_edit_sm_

I am always open, open to the possibilities, and my children, my career, my work, my art; they all keep me busy, but it isn’t necessarily a busy that will make me forget, but rather prolong the healing. I do more often than not catch myself daydreaming when I see a woman I come across, I think – is she the one,… or, is she, but I know that the Lord has plans and I don’t see them yet nor will I, or if I do I will not understand  until he is ready to show those plans to me.

Drama aside I hope and wait with veritable bated breath as the tremolos in violins, to indicate excitement – for that tinge that first knowledge that this – this new person is to be someone in my life!

There is a scene in Cinderella, spoiler alert, wherein whilst in the attic Cinderella dances about; she knows that the kings men are wandering about the countryside looking for whomsoever may fit the glass shoes, but she doesn’t care and consoles herself with the memory of the evening of the ball…

And, so perhaps for now, I shall also console myself and my broken heart with the memory of what once was, because for now that is what I have. Its not necessarily a sad thing but an understanding and a realization that once before I did find love…

the headshot

There is something about the headshot that I have always enjoyed! And I always think of it as the undershot subject and no one likes doing headshots or few shooters do rather because its “boring” I think not and I enjoy them here’s a few examples of what i’ve shot lately! enjoy!

bts ballet

There is something wonderful about seeing awesome photos, awesome photography. An artist any artist sets out with a vision and hopefully it comes across and the message is received. I have always preferred the hustle and bustle of what goes on behind the art, the prep, the planning, the execution, the hullabaloo the road to the final product. I shoot any number of shots behind the scenes because I think its important that the viewer sees what goes on behind the scenes of the final product and that it isn’t necessarily only about just the shot.
