Richard Drake started taking photos in the morning in front of his house on the beach in Kailua. He then started posting them on Facebook. Soon people from all over the world started to buy them. Richard grew up in Kailua, Oahu and has worked in the film industry here for over forty years; working with the likes of Herb Ritz and Bill Fraker. His passion for photography and his love of the islands comes through in each of his amazing photos. Owning one of his photos is like waking up with a little bit of Hawaiian's paradise in you life every day. Aloha!
