Kawika "Veeks" Lopez

Born and raised in Waialua, Hawaiʻi, Kawika starts his days well before the sun comes up. He hikes up Oʻahu's highest ridges and deep into its lush valleys, striving find the most unique perspectives through the lens. “I do the things that most people aren’t willing to do in order to achieve something that most people will never achieve," he says.

As a full-time filmmaker and photographer, Kawika considers himself extremely blessed top have a career doing something he loves He found his passion for photography and video in high school, later pursuing a degree in creative media. 

Today, Kawika is a partner at 9th Avenue Studios and owns his own photography company called Kawika Lopez Photography.
