A LITTLE Trip For Some BIG Art Inspiration

Kim is taking a much needed trip back home to see her family in Lake Tahoe. She has been a busy bee working all summer at the Four Season's Resort on Maui, and painting every chance she gets in her Paia Studio. We are happy to see her back home for a little rest and relaxation.

Evening with my favorite model

This picture was taken at the ending party of the WaterWo/Men Extravaganza.  I had the most amazing week, meeting incredible people from all over the world...photographers, conservationists, actors, musicians, watermen and models!  My favorite model of all time, Helena Christensen, was one of the participants of the event and I had the opportunity to meet with her and have a conversation about photography as the sun was setting.

I had the most amazing day courtside with 2 of the best surfers in the world, Laird Hamilton and Raimana Van Bastolaer, from Tahiti. It was an epic surfing day at Teahupo'o, 11 hours and dozens of perfect waves. I hope you enjoy the pictures. It was a surreal experience. Thank you Raimana for your hospitality, Laird for the great conversations and Cameron for all the wonderful surf photos.
