ABISS - Art Because I Said So
As a photographer in Hawaii, it's hard to take a bad shot. With the technologies in our phones, anyone can take an amazing photo. The difference between me and your Uncle with an iPhone is, I am going to get the really good shots of you on purpose. Lots of them! Photography and Artistic expression are my life. The day I picked up a camera was the day I found the person I was meant to be. I am a veteran with more then a decade of active duty service. As proud as I am of that, I now know that my time in the military was always meant to prepare me for what I am doing now.
I found myself when I discovered a way to share art and joy with the world. I use the latest in computer software to bring your photos to life. This process allows me to push the limits of locations and equipment. If you see something on Pinterest that you want to try at your wedding or event. I will help you bring it to life in your own special way. We are going to create works of art that other people want to have for themselves. There isn't an avenue of main stream photography that I don't have experience with, Weddings, portraits, Pets, Real Estate, Landscape, you name it, I have a portfolio for it!
ArtBecauseIsaidSo The name might be a little off putting but I can assure you it is not born from a place of boastfulness but rather a place of inner peace. When I left the military I had spent a significant amount of time in the Middle East and Eastern Africa. The wear and tear on my mind, body and spirit are hard to quantify. When I started this company, I did so for myself with no one else in mind. I needed to take photos as a way to cope and come to terms with my past. It was the only thing that helped me find enough calmness of spirit to unravel the the painful thoughts circling my consciousness. The name means a great deal to me. It signifies a time in my life in which I had the strength to make major changes and run towards a passion to create art and bring a little joy to the world. I cant wait to work with you on what ever project you have in mind. Aloha Matthew Forney
