Joey Trisolini grew up in a small town named Ka'a'awa on the east side of Oahu, Hawai'i. An otherwise unknown little town with only 1300 residents, its claim to fame is a short clip in the Hollywood surfing movie Blue Crush, showcasing Ka'a'awa’s tiny elementary school. Joey got into skateboarding at the age of 13 and used disposable cameras to document his friends, dropping each roll off at the local 7-11. Skateboarding and taking photos came hand in hand. After a short stint of documenting life in Italy and New Mexico, he eventually took the plunge and moved to New York to join a friend working at Milk Studios. This became a jumping off point for working with some of the world's leading fashion and advertising photographers. Joey is based in New York, but is easily talked into any warm locale with a beach.
