Image of the Week – Mystical Sunset

This week I am featuring Mystical Sunset. Created in North Kihei, the sun had set and I was about to pack up, when the after glow started to appear. Wasting no time, I set back up and was able to create this portrait. I dragged the shutter in order to manage the motion of the…

Taking Pictures vs Creating Portraits

When I am at the beach with my dog visitors to Maui, frequently come over and take pictures. Maybe they miss their dog, or they think its cool that Dusty (my dog), wears a rash guard. Well, long story short about Dusty, he has skin cancer and the only way he can enjoy the beach…

Painting with Light

Having been creating photographs professionally since 1998, there are still many aspects of photography that get me excited. Recently, I had a workshop client that wanted to photograph the night sky. We started just prior to sunset and went to Ukumahame Beach. There is a tree there that has stood the test of time and…

Image of the Week – Back To School

This week I am featuring a portrait that has been recently created and will no doubt be added to my collection of open edition art in the future. The portrait is titled, “Back to School”. Created at Mala Wharf, this environmental wide angle reef perspective shows a school of fish within the structure of broken…

Image of the Week – King of The Forest

When planning a long or difficult hike, it is important to consider what equipment to bring. When climbing up a vertical cliff or traversing a slippery slope, the less weight you’re carrying the better. I usually pack two camera bodies, 2-3 lenses, all the filters that might be needed, a tripod, and water. On this…

Image of The Week – Into The Mystic

This weeks image is titled, “Into the Mystic”. The location is the rocky shoreline in front of Wailea Point. The cove was tiny but what impressed me was the rock in the center and the water movement around, with each incoming wave. After watching for a while I decided to use a graduated Neutral Density…

Image of The Week – Against the Wind

I selected “Against the Wind”, this week as the weather has been a bit gusty and I just heard the song by Bob Segar on the radio. The two match well as its an incredible song and the wave is world class too. Just being there on a boat to create this image was an…

Image of The Week – Time To Reflect

I selected “Time to Reflect”, this week as it features an incredible reflection of a Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle. The patterns from the surface flow so well and blend with turtle at the surface. If you want to improve your underwater photography skills, consider a private workshop. Available for purchase online.
