Of the 300 GBs of photos I took in 2014, only 3 GBs of those ever made it to Fatlace; the others may have gotten some love on Instagram or even lost while waiting for publication, releases, etc….so here’s to the ones that never made it!

Earlier this month, we were blessed to survive a potentially deadly accident…wifey’s Fiat didn’t make it however.  Her best friend also had a Fiat, and they always joked about a Fiat photoshoot…I’m glad we were able to capture those memories.

On one of my layovers in San Diego, I linked up with my college friend David who just got his 1969 Dodge Charger back from engine rebuild.

The Volkswagen Club of Hawaii Annual Shaka Weekend is one of my favorite events of the year, but unfortunately I was only able to capture a few highlights this year.

I was lucky enough to catch a very rare sighting of my friend Randy’s freshly restored Type 147 Fridolin!  More info here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Type_147_Kleinlieferwagen.

Another event that brings a lot of cars out of hibernation is the annual Toys for Tots Car Show and Shine…like this infamous Hawaiian Hakosuka!

And Offset Kings Hawaii 2014…see my full coverage here http://fatlace.com/2014/05/offset-kings-2014-hawaii/.

The week after the show, I played car photoshoot tour guide and photo assistant for Dino from Speedhunters.  Looking good Dino!  😉

Alex‘s M3, 1st Place Euro (Speedhunters – A BMW M3 With A JDM Twist)

Justin‘s AE86, #FeatureThis Winner (Speedhunters – The Hawaiian Hachi With A Nissan Heart)

Sara‘s S2000, 1st Place JDM (Speedhunters – The Hawaiian Club Racer)…also featured on Fast Car Magazine 0347.

The Naked and Famous are one of my favorite bands, so I was stoked to not only see them live but also shoot some photos too!

We were lucky enough to be invited to a sneak preview of the new Urban Outfitters Hawaii before the grand opening!

When Mark asked me to shoot the Ladylike 2014 lookbook with Kori, I was very happy with the outcome of the first lookbook I have ever shot!  See the rest of the lookbook here http://shop.fatlace.com/pages/ladylike-lookbook.

This photo was immortalized in the form of a sticker!  Available here http://shop.fatlace.com/collections/stickers/products/the-illest-summer-bumper-sticker.

Another lookbook-like shoot I did was for my friend James‘ brand Team James Race Car, better known as TJRC.

I also got a few photos when I tagged along on a photoshoot for Mods vs. Rockers.

Although we’ve been living on Oahu for about 3 years now, the beauty of paradise is truly endless…here’s what we were blessed with in 2014.

And last but not least…Mele Kalikimaka, Merry Christmas from paradise!  Better late than never 😉
