Douglas J. Hoffman, Master Photographer

The great thing about photography is that with one look the viewer is transported and feels the emotion of the moment.

I am a diver & photographer and fortunate to combine my passions and to create art above and below the surface of the sea that captures the beauty of our world.  I also enjoy teaching how to manage light, create compositions that are balanced, and evoke an emotional response.  While Maui based,  l lead International tours to scuba dive world class destinations and to swim with Humpback Whales in the wild.

I look forward to being of service.

Beyond all expectations.

Douglas was so laid back, thoughtful, and easy to work with for our entire family. He found out what we wanted yet allowed his gift of telling a story of our family to be the final product. He even got one of our girls to give him her real smiles which is gold to her parents. Our family (even the girls) enjoyed the entire process and the pictures were beyond all our expectations.  We know that the pictures he captured will be lifelong treasures to our family.

Preserving beautiful memories.

Our family would like to thank you for capturing some of our best memories yet! On our very first family vacation to Hawaii, we were fortunate to meet you and couldn't be more pleased with the results. We have never seen so many wonderful pictures of our family captured in one sitting.  The canvas prints we bought are absolutely gorgeous and are truly a family heirloom that we will treasure for years to come.  Thank you for preserving some beautiful memories for us.  We look forward to meeting you again on our next trip to Maui.

- The Banks Family

Memories that will last forever.

We want to thank you for the outstanding pictures of our family on the occasion of our 50th wedding anniversary. We knew we wanted to have a good photographer take our family pictures while in Maui, and we feel so fortunate to have found you. We worked together for almost 2 years prior to the event and you made the entire experience fun and enjoyable. We love our "coffee table book" and the large portraits which will adorn our homes for years to come. Thank you for preserving memories that will last forever.
