Hula calendar seeks public entries

August 29th, 2014

In celebration of working with hula kahiko for 35 years, acclaimed Oahu photographer Kim Taylor Reece is offering the chance to win a photo shoot and to be in his 2015 calendar. It's his first contest of this type.


"I look for passion, energy, inner beauty, and an emotional connection with the camera," explained Reece. "You don't need to be a dancer, necessarily. We shoot portraits, too."
