Most often found shooting film, Hawaiian transplant John Hook uses his local knowledge to translate the surrounding island scenery into beautifully candid and unique moments in time.
Exuding a wide range of emotions from behind a lens, he has an innate ability to tell multiple stories with a single capture and leave you with a strong desire to move to a far off island paradise.
We asked John Hook to collaborate with us on a few organic cotton tees, featuring a few of his favorite and iconic images from his local haunts. Known as the Banks Journal Studio, our mission is to create an ongoing series of opportunities to merge creative artists with our organic, premium apparel. Think of it as an alternate canvas for some of our friends and creators.
The above two images are the shots that John Hook chose to use for our limited range of tee shirts. Feel free to click the images above to view the final product!
Much thanks to filmer and photographer, Evan Schell, for shooting and directing the wonderful video and providing some amazing photos of his time spent with John Hook, like the one above. To see more of Evan's work, follow him on his Instagram @theslipperysaltwaterchronicles
