Q: What's with the pineapples? When did that start and what is it about?
A: So I started shootings pineapples with my friend Cyrus (@hawaii_aquaholic) in early 2017. I was initially inspired by some of the photos he created with his pineapple and wanted to see if I could take it to the next level. I started experimenting with pineapples underwater, pineapples during sunset, and pineapples in the air. I loved how the pictures turned out and some of my best work is with pineapples. People have also really enjoyed my pineapple pictures and I have gotten more exposure because of it. My love for pineapple photography has grown immensely and I’ve been getting creative with my pineapples ever since.
