Life Behind the Lens

Matt Heirakuji developed his passion for photography at Sandy Beach, taking photos of friends bodysurfing in the shorebreak. Fast forward a few years and now he’s doing it for a living.

This is his story about being a full-time freelance photographer in Hawaii.

A big mahalo to Blayne Asing, Kulia Clothing, and Kualoa Ranch for their kokua with this project.
