Aloha – Welcome to Maui, Hawaii and to my world as a professional camera artist. The art and business of photography have run in my lineage since 1840. Photography has been my life and my journey. After 28 years as a full-time professional, I am comfortable in my shoes. I dream that my photographs will live on in perpetuity, as a historical record of this culture I love. Allow me to share my passion with you.
As a Hawaii photographer, the hula dance is my most beloved subject. The men, women, and children of hula are iconic cultural figures — legendary worldwide. I also photograph the famous paniolo island cowboys. The culture of Hawaii runs deep with traditions and pride. Of course, the natural panoramic beauty of Hawaii is an organic draw to anyone with a camera–with lush mountains, jungles, waterfalls, rainbows, flowing lava, pristine sand beaches, secret coves, and amazing humpback whales frolicking near the shoreline.
