HAPPY HOLIDAYS! WE JUST OPENED 2 NEW LOCATIONS in WAIKIKI & LAS VEGAS. Come say Aloha!
International Photography Awards First Place Winners - Master Scuba Diver Trainers - 100 Ton Boat Captains - Conservationists - Nice Guys
Watch us doing what we love! It is fun to share our adventures and give you a behind the scenes view into the process of how we capture our images. We get into some crazy situations sometimes (well, as much as possible), so enjoy these!
This is from our French Polynesia / Tahiti trip. You can see some footage of the massive schools of sharks and it's also where we took "Poke Pig":
One of our most recent trips to our bucket list spot, the Galapagos, incredible!:
We weren't scuba diving for this one but it shows us taking images of Jaws here on Maui. Shot during a 60-70ft swell from a door-less helicopter which got ridiculously close to these monster waves!:
Some cool footage of an unexpected happening while on a dive boat in the Galapagos. School of Silky sharks hanging off back of the boat:
Great white shark diving off the coast of Mexico at Guadalupe island, nuts! Here Sharky, Sharky, Sharky:
We are lucky enough to work on a whale research team called the Keiki Kohola Project. Here is some pretty cool whale footage from us with the whales:
We were featured on this cool show called, "Wild About Animals" with Mariette Hartley:
Video of Marine Iguanas in the Galapagos. Pretty much swimming dinosaurs:
John talks a little about our gear and camera selections:
Dan explains some about the importance of strobes when shooting underwater:
Float vs Euro Mount Explained
Both of our aluminum mounting options have a modern feel and look "frame-less" from the front. There is no need for additional framing, they arrive in your hands, ready to hang.
Euro Mount: This option is frame-less when viewed from straight on but has a frame to edge on the back that is visible from the side that is about 1 1/2 inches thick. We use a double metal frame for added support. Default euro mount color is black but is available in silver as well. Please let us know if you would like the silver option. Euro mounts are usually recommended for larger images but they work well for all sizes. In our galleries, most pieces 12 x 18 and above are displayed with euro mounts.
Float Mount: This option looks like it is literally "floating" about a half inch off of the wall. There is a hanger on the back which you can use to hang the image with a nail or picture hanger. Float mounts are usually recommended for smaller sized images but can also work well for most sizes. At our galleries, most pieces 11x14 and smaller are shown with float mounts.
The vibrant look comes from ambient light reflecting off of the aluminum and the ink at the same time which results in the most luminescent art you will ever see. The images are so brilliant that people often ask if there are lights behind them! To top it off, the dye-infused aluminum process has unprecedented archival characteristics that will enable your piece to be radiant for the next 150 years.
Both options look amazing, let us know if you have any questions. We would love to help!
