I am Anianikū. It's pronounced "Ahh-knee-ahh-knee-koo"). Easy right? I hail from Hawaii - a place that encourages getting outdoors and spending as much time as you can in the ocean. The ocean is a constant need in my life; the soft sand between my toes, the smell of salt air, and the sound of waves crashing down are all things I crave. My entire life has been based around being a creative. Iʻm addicted to the notion of creating art with my own hands and enjoy seeing the works of others that exude that same passion. Much of my work incorporate the ocean shooting both above and below the surface. Everyone has their own way of self-expression, I do it with a camera in one hand and usually a pair of fins in the other.
