One breath and hamstring cramp at a time...

Aloha, my name is Mike Ito (@mikeitophoto), a self-taught lifestyle/surf photographer and art director based in Oahu, Hawaii. A few years ago, I left my corporate job, a nitro-fueled work culture, to pursue my passion for surfing, photography, and family. My work has taken me to Australia, Hawaii, Indonesia, Mexico, and New Zealand.

I am a co-founder and Art Director/photographer for Lost Not Found Magazine (@lostnotfoundmagazine). A magazine about alternative surf craft, culture, and its people. I am seeking projects and adventures to collaborate with, get the stories, and get them to print!

You can find me at my email, "mike ito photo at gmail.com"
