EMAIA RISE

A creative, dependable, hardworking individual that is able to photograph, design, develop and apply audio-visual material for promotional, educational, and or general communication purposes.

  •   BIO

    Growing up in Hawaii, Emaia Rise began nurturing her creativity at an early age while helping her artist father. In high school, compelled by a need to capture life and its memorable moments, she developed a passion for photography.

     

    Emaia's adventurous spirit motivated her to enlist into the United States Coast Guard in 1999, an experience that allowed her to travel the Pacific, Continental US, Caribbean, Europe, Asia and the Middle East extensively; all the while she continued documenting those memorable moments. The military honed her positive attitude and bolstered her motivation, leading her to embark on a new journey: returning to school.

     

    Georgia's Savannah College of Art and Design was a challenging and fulfilling experience. Emaia is a recent graduate with a BFA in Motion Media Design, and true to her earliest love, a Minor in Photography.

     

    One particularly poignant lesson from her time at SCAD came in the form of a quote by professor Jaclyn C. Norman: "Each time we take a photograph we can't help but share a part of our own subconscious." With this philosophy always in mind, and realizing that it applies to all art Emaia continues along the path of understanding the visions of her subconscious that she started down long ago. (as that little island girl)
