AccesSurf Hawaii is a non-profit organization based in Honolulu. Their incredible team provides surf and aquatic opportunities for individuals with physical or cognitive disabilities. The organization held their "Day at the Beach" event. I partnered with AccesSurf on a volunteer basis to provide portraits of the participating athletes.
I had the opportunity to speak with each athlete before and after photographing them. Being around their joyful spirits and pure hearts was a great blessing and communicating with them was very inspirational and heartwarming. My experience partnering with AccesSurf was amazing, I hope you enjoy this fun project!
