About Me

National award winning and internationally renowned photographer Rick Bernico, uses his unique artistic eye and talent to produce some of the best portraiture and event photography in Hawaii and is an official photographer for over ten major and minor beauty pageants in Hawaii.

Hawaii Profiles LLC helps actors, models, entertainers or anyone who has aspirations for some professional career. Our team will help you determine what your goals are, determine where you are with respect to fulfilling those goals, help you develop the necessary skills and abilities that you will need to not only make yourself more marketable but also to help you become as successful as possible in the career you are pursuing.

We are searching for models with a special look for some of our sponsors as well as our own surrealistic art photography. These models must have a powerful sensuality and creativity for different projects which will probably involve pay, but in all cases will be artistic (finished product) and beautiful.

If you are interested in setting up a photo shoot please reply to this and also call or text me at (808) 780-5554.

Concepts include:
• surrealistic, fantasy & alternate universe images using fantastic scenery & sensual  models, generally to tell a story, imply a possible alternate future or create fantastic art;
• statuesque looking heroines with extremely long hair;
• models for body painting;
• models for Lilith, vampires, vampire slayers, victims;

Trade or Pay
I do TFP/TFCD and paid shoots depending on the project or sponsors involved.

My time is very valuable to me so please respect any appointments we make and treat them as if you had just prepaid for a $350 for the shoot.

I have a variety of gowns, dresses, petite clothing, costumes, wraps & pareos for photo shoots. I occasionally have swim suits but usually wind up giving them away and that costs money; therefore, I am very selective who I shoot with the suits I have. I have over ten pageant and prom gowns that are for sale, rent or loan and can be used for photo shoots, proms or pageants.

I work directly or indirectly with a number of pageant directors, agency directors and some film makers. I am always looking for new contestants, models and talent for them. I don't get anything from them for recruiting. My main concern is helping the teens & young ladies that I work with to have the greatest opportunities to make money for themselves and get good exposure.

Looking for YOU!!!
There are a number of beauty pageants coming up within the next few months and the pageant directors are looking for contestants NOW. If you are interested in participating in any of the pageants please call me at 808-780-5554 or email me at [email protected] and I will pass on your information to any of the pageant directors.
