We don't know if anyone has done something like this before. Michael Gurney of Fisheye Hawaii came up with the idea, “Lets do some shorts where we get all the photographers together.” It was perfect.
At noRep, we are all about connecting people - we believe things can be done so much better when done by a group or community. We started “inviting” photographers to join and have their photography featured - all they needed to submit the photo they liked the best of Sandys.
We played with the designs a for a bit and figured the best way to credit the guys without it looking weird would be if we did it as polaroid shots. The background of the shorts is an out of focus lava rock shot from Sandys.
Props to the artists on these shorts:

Our most collective collab to date. We partnered with 24 incredible photographers who love to show their passion for the water on Instagram. Each photographer sent their best shot of Sandys...
