Founder Brian Ross has been shooting for over 25 years, and his work has been exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum, the Broadway Gallery in NYC, & the Hui No’eau in Hawaii. He has a degree in Communications & Anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania, and has done graduate work in Filmmaking at NYU. Brian has photographed noble laureates: HH the Dalai Lama XIV, Nelson Mandela, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and has explored contemporary expressions of spirituality and art. He has created successful fundraising art events to benefit the Nelson Mandela’s Children’s Fund & the Tibetan Children’s Village in India. Brian is also the author of “Lunch with Krishna”, a work of fiction examining spirituality and culture in contemporary society.
Over the last decade Brian has been photographing and exploring Hawaii’s most scenic locations, and is passionate about sharing these treasures with curious travelers. It is his hope that through the medium of photography, visitors to the islands will cultivate a deep love and appreciation for the ‘aina (land) and a new inspiration to cultivate their creative photographic expression.
