Back from teaching landscape and underwater composition in Fiji.

by Douglas Hoffman on June 18, 2014

Wow, Fiji is an incredible location for its people, incredible marine life and coral reefs, as well as flowers, beaches, and landscapes.  I had a great time sharing composition techniques and helping people become better photographers. Over the course of a week each participant showed dramatic improvement and I couldn’t be more pleased.  Now, I am back in Maui for the next few months and have several landscape workshops scheduled.

I will be traveling soon to Tonga to teach 2 back to back 10 day workshops on whale photography.  Participants will be exposed to techniques that work well when photographing whales above and below the surface of the sea. The dates are Aug 31-Sept 24th.  During my absence John Hugg will be leading the tours and workshops in Hawaii.  John is wonderful and has worked with me for 6 years.  He knows the island quite well and is dedicated to helping people see the best locations and improve their skill set.

Here is an image from my recent workshop in Fiji.  Enjoy!
