My classmate at Parker School, Jonah Roll has made available two prints by his father (My photography teacher at Parker School) former Star Bulletin Chief Photographer Warren Roll.  Proceeds from these remastered 16x16 metal prints will go towards Parker School Scholarships.

Both images were taken in 1968, the first image is the summit of Mauna Kea with only one telescope (The University of Hawaii 0.6m) and the second print is of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel shortly after it opened.

W. M. Keck Observatory - The Impossible Telescope, Big Island Hawaii by Ethan Tweedie

This is such an amazing film about an amazing team of some of the brightest individuals ever assembled to create the W.M. Keck Observatory here on the Big Island of Hawaii. 

W.M. Keck Observatory writes: “W. M. Keck Observatory takes a journey through time, honoring the past, celebrating the present, and inspiring the future. This film highlights the vision, mission, and evolution of the most scientifically impactful optical/infrared twin telescopes on Earth, as told through the lenses of the people who are part of the Observatory’s history and experienced the trials, tribulations, and successes of building what was once called ‘The Impossible Telescope.’”

I am so proud to have met so many of these amazing people and had the opportunity to work with them capturing images for the Observatory!  Mahalo Andrea Ghez, Andrew Cooper, Ron Laub, Taft Armandroff,  Barbara Schaefer, Hilton A.

Vacation Rental Photography - Latest Photoshoot for Inspirato Luxury Vacation Rentals by Ethan Tweedie

Our latest photoshoot was on the Big Island of Hawaii for a company called Inspirato, they are a leading luxury hospitality company that manages, staffs, and maintains an exclusive collection of branded luxury vacation homes.  

The home we photographed is located in the heart of the Waikoloa Beach Resort on a beachfront setting called Kolea which is a gated community right on Anaehoʻomalu Bay on the stunning Kohala/Kona Coast. The first thing you see when you enter the home is the gorgeous blue water of the Pacific Ocean. You can certainly enjoy the pool and Jacuzzi or just a short walk from the home is the white sands of Anaehoʻomalu Beach where you can relax on the beach, swim, snorkel etc or explore the Petroglyphs steps away from the house.  

We were blessed with gorgeous sunny skies most of the day and to our surprise a rare light rain cloud came over the house and created this giant rainbow right at sunset!!
