"im sad"...On the contrary-I'm really not
Freak Photography collaboration | Art Institute Project: Shoes
Collaborator Background// Photographer Trenton Kakazu's is a transfer student from Kanhoe, Hawaii and is now attending the San Francisco Academy of Arts. Although he is a student, he also has his professional photography business/brand on the side, Freak Photography. He specializes in motion/sports photography and continues to grow in his skills with is own creative twist. Find more of his work on Facebook and his Website.
How We Met// I met Trenton at a club I am in called City Cru. It is a branch of the organization Campus Crusades based on college Christian outreach.
(If you are looking for a college fellowship, Campus Crusades has around 1,740 active communities in colleges/universities. I really would recommend checking the nearest to you out! It'll help you grow in your faith, as well as meet a diverse amount of amazing/talented people. It's only been less than 2 months and I love it. It has already been a huge impact on my life and now have made so many great friends. Cru has definitely made my college experience incredible.)
After Wednesday service we started talking about college and our majors-networking from there. Instantly I saw Trenton's passion for photography and we continued to keep in contact.

OVEREXPOSED IN THE DEEP END
I loved how these pictures turned out! I remember how excited I was when I saw the camera roll. He is one of the few photographers that I personally know that can make over-exposure as an effect work.
Location: Point Bonita, Golden Gate Recreation Area, California 94941
Hiking around the beautiful coastal view, a couple of my friends and I found this underground, old military bunker filled with graffiti art. The bunker was such a hard contrast from the breath-taking naturesque get-away, we were surprised in finding it. It was a prime photo shoot area, and I was obsessed.
Styled Outfit// Efflorescence
Floral-girly juxtaposition against the rough gratified walls. Subtly mixing patterns with stripes and botanicals.
Supporting and loving the kimono trend still.There's something effortless and elegantly feminine about the Japanese silhouette that draws me in. I love I can just complete a simple outfit or bring it to the next level by throwing that piece over.
(p.s.- I spy my last name)
Floral Kimono- De Masque
Stiped Crop Top- Thrifted (Cross Roads)
Easy Jeans- American Apparel
Letter to the Collaborator
It was wonderful working with you! Thank you so much for taking these awesome shots, sharing your talent, and dealing with my perfectionist/nitpicky self from time to time. I'm usually used to being behind the camera for photo shoots with styling and directing from ET Couture, but this experience definitely loosened up my comfort zone. It was really great working with a fellow artist, and I look forward in networking with you in the future. You are very knowledgeable with your equipment, and I can't wait to see your skills grow even more.
