Christopher "Unkle Papa"
"...and after 4,000+ weddings (both in front of and behind the lens) it seemed like the perfect time..."
Aloha E komo mai, (Hello and welcome to my home) Feel free to join in the spirit of Aloha by calling me "Unkle" or "Mr. Papa". In Hawaii "Unkle" is how locals refer to elders, regardless of familial connection and "Mr. Papa" is how my Grandchildren and their friends refer to me. Believe it or not, some refer to me as "Unkle Papa"... I love it!
My Humble Beginnings! It all began back in the 1970's; armed with my brand spankin' new Canon AE1 (Trivia: The AE1 was the very first microprocessor-equipped SLR). Having cut my teeth learning the ropes on a very trusted, beat up and well used Canon F1, the passion for professional photography and imagery was born. From there, I built my own darkroom and soon obtained the Canon AE1 "Programmable" and nothing was the same.
Today, it's all digital and an entirely different kind of intensity... Rather than sitting in that custom Black & White darkroom in the 1970's and by custom I mean a converted 8'X6' bathroom, it's now a full color digital editing production suite with top of the line editing software and hours in front of a giant computer monitor but......... the passion continues.
I have zero complaints with today's technology as I've always considered myself a "techie" and trust me, I can live with the headaches of staring at a computer screen all day as opposed to those old fashioned "eye adjustment" headaches from sitting in a safe-light darkroom all day AND breathing in chemicals like developer, stop-bath and fixer for 8+ hours...
