Greetings LOST Maniacs!
Recently I was fortunate enough to befriend Tina Lau, a fellow graphic designer, photographer, and LOSTie who lives in Hawaii (where we all know LOST was filmed). Tina has been working in and around the entertainment industry for most of her life and has acquired countless backstage passes and contacts that get her access to movie and TV productions taking place around the state.
One of her specialties is shooting awesome photographs of the celebrities she encounters. Tina's photos are often sold through an agency. One of her recent pics of Evangeline Lilly at the LOST Season Six Premiere Event in Oahu even sold to a few magazines.
In fact, her photos are unlike many of the ones you may have seen from this event, as she had a great perspective at the beginning of the red carpet right as the cast members were getting out of their cars. As Tina put it, "By the time they got to the "official" spot, their excitement had died down."
Lately Tina has been writing for a local Cable company about her experiences with the entertainment world in Hawaii. Her most recent article, "Lost Leaves Its Footprint" is a really insightful peek into the cast members' lives while they were there, and the overall impact of the filming of the show on the island. She told me, "For this article, I wrote from the perspective of what I wanted to know about the show, then researched the facts."
Here's an excerpt:

In addition you will get to see more of her amazing photographs that you wont see anywhere else, such as the one below of the author herself, along with Emmy-award winner, Terry O'Quinn.
Enjoy and NAMASTE!
