Crane has taken thousands of photographs all over the world, yet he considers himself an amateur and his photography a hobby that has ranged for more than 20 years.

Crane was born in Hawaii. His mother’s family came to the islands two hundred years ago as missionaries. His father is from a family of educators.

“When you’re born in the islands you have to travel to see anything,” Crane said.

And travel he did.

He’s traveled and worked on islands in every ocean, been from Romania to South Africa, from Japan to Austria and Italy.

He worked on cruise ships for 15 years, five years as a purser. He went to Turkey and Greece this summer and will go on a mission trip with Cross Cultural Solutions to either China or South Africa this coming summer.

At the present time, Crane is pursuing his degree in pharmacology, is a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, N-Sights the campus newspaper, and operates a medical billing company. After he becomes a pharmacist, he plans to continue traveling and taking beautiful pictures.
