WHO WE ARE
Our founder, Jordan Naholowaa Murph, got here after working for several years as a photographer, event IT tech, and photo editor/manager in freelance and corporate positions.
As a child, he loved computers and taking apart and fixing things. He grew up in the Puna district on the east side of the island of Hawaii and learned about photography in high school as a student at Kamehameha Kapalama. During and after college he cold-called photographers and offered to assist, eventually becoming a Lighting Technician & Flash Wizard Tech at Sports Illustrated. More opportunities came down the line, almost always blending the lines between photography and IT, including two stints with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as the Photo Editor & Archivist, and later as the Team Photographer, followed by a couple of Olympic Games, Academy Awards, and such. He began getting hired by new clients because he knew how to manage and execute the process from A-Z in addition to making photographs.
PUNA, meaning a spring in ‘Olelo Hawai’i/Native Hawaiian, is the new amalgamation of all of Jordan's past work: a single-stop shop for start to finish corporate photography production and consulting."
"While the digital revolution changed photography and how businesses interact with it, the ability to deliver images from anywhere on Earth in close-to-real time has created a plethora of new challenges as photography becomes more data wrangling than a creative medium.
Modern organizations, whether global or local, must create, maintain, and distribute relevant content in a timely and secure manner to stay relevant in today's market. Most organizations no longer have the dedicated photo staff, departments, and resources needed to properly handle photographic resources.
For the majority of professional photographers, business is *generously* 5% picture taking with the remaining 95% consisting of accounting, communication, legal, marketing, airports, hotels, taxis, with a few "doh!" & "aha!" moments sprinkled there with plenty of coffee to keep going. They're expected to be the Finance, Marketing, Legal, IT, HR, and Creative Departments all while staying focused on making excellent pictures.
That's where PUNA steps in. Our holistic photography experience was designed to simplify sourcing, hiring, and utilizing photography for demanding organizations.
Our team has managed photography and IT operations for some of the world's most recognizable brands and events. Our network of photographers has photographed the majority of major entertainment, corporate, and sporting events across America for the last decade-plus.
We make hiring, pricing, and managing amazing photography a simple process for organizations no matter the size.
Are you ready to forever change the way you approach photography?"
