National Underwriter Magazine with Nahua Maunakea

In March I had the chance to shoot a feature assignment for National Underwriter magazine. Nahua is a Hawaiian native that now lives in Denver so I wanted to shoot him somewhere noticeably Denver. The Hamilton building at the Denver Art Museum seemed like a great place to get some nice angles and modern architecture. It was quite a chilly early Spring morning, especially in the shade where we shot. My assistant Stephen braved the cold, standing in for a lighting test.




I stopped at the grocery store on the way in and picked up a coconut and pineapple to possibly use as props, which luckily Nahua was fully cooperative and into the idea.

Nahua was a really great guy and incredibly natural which makes my job all the easier. The story made the cover and I’m really happy how it came out.
