Hello, new followers, lovers of art and the rest of the interwebs.
My name is Cheyne (its pronounced “Shane”) and I’m a Filipino/Chinese photographer in Hawaii. I am a brown asian (see above) but thanks to my makeup and wardrobe skills, I can be anyone I want. It’s very empowering, but can be very draining. Hours of makeup, shooting, emoting … and then repeating the process for each new character definitely takes its toll on anyone. But it should be noted that the passion to create art is what drives me to continue.
I’m writing to encourage you to interact with me because your feedback and support matters. It’s like applause for a theatre show, which us actors feed off of. If you see something you like, feel free to share it! If you see something that you don’t understand or want to know more about — ask me! Remember that behind all these characters is me, a human being who has as much curiosity as he does creativity.
