"It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all."
What’s your name? Emily Helen Krause. Emily is my first name and Helen is my middle name. I am named after my Grandma Helen and she was very inspirational to me so I use ‘Emily Helen’ as my photography name. Most people just call me Emily, though.
How long have you been on Kauai? I have been calling the beautiful garden island of Kauai home since 2006. I moved right after I graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. I fell in love with the lush palms, the salty ocean and the laid-back island lifestyle.
Why are you a photographer? I am a photographer because I am obsessed with photographs. And, I am highly creative and taking photographs fuels my soul.
Do you shoot film or digital? I use both, because I love all types of photography. Film has a dreamy quality that I can’t resist. I also love digital because it is immediate and unlimited.
What kind of lighting do you use? Natural. I love God’s lighting. Kauai has amazing lighting, because the sun bounces off of our ocean creating a dreamy quality of pure luxury for the eye.
What do you do when you aren’t behind your camera? I love going to the beach with my kids, going to yoga, juicing, cooking, shopping the farmer's market, swimming in the ocean, running and hiking to waterfalls.
