Hawaiian Waves – Silent Lucidity in Fluidity

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Photo: Waves breaking at sunset along the Kailua-Kona shoreline, on the Big Island of Hawaii One of the all-time great instances of musical misdirection occurred back in 1990 when the heavy-metal rock group, Queensryche, released their ballad, Silent Lucidity. Once the song became a hit on the radio airwaves, people flocked to their local record […]

Trapped in a Hawaiian paradise – a photographer’s dilemma

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Picture: Sunset as seen from the Kona Magic Sands near White Sands Beach Park, Kailua-Kona, Big Island, Hawaii When people think about travel or nature photographers, often we think of someone zipping around from spot to spot, tripod slung over a shoulder as they chase the elusive next shot. Most of us do it without […]

Aerial view over Maui and tips for shooting from airlines

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

And such is exactly the case when shooting […]

Travel Photography is often about Get What You Can

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Picture: Palm tree at sunset, Kihei, Maui, Hawaii Almost all travel photography has a combination of things that you as the photographer can or can’t control. Sometimes it simply boils down to a take-what-you-can-get proposition. Nowhere is this more true than when a professional travel photographer takes a family vacation, especially when the family doesn’t […]

Remembering and remembrance

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

Picture: Young boy looking up at all the names on the wall at the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii A few days ago I heard something about the experience of having your life flash before your eyes just before you die. I thought to myself, “Gee, I wonder what I’ll remember at […]

Fun with Scale, Hawaiian-style.

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Picture: Hula Dancer doing The Wedding Hula, Paradise Cove Luau, Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii Deep down, we all know it. But our brain likes to fill n the g ps. Objects that are farther away from us appear smaller. That’s obvious when you’re looking across a landscape toward a distant city or mountain. But the […]

I’ll say it again, it’s about the Light

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Picture: Rainbow over Polynesian motif wood carving, Paradise Cove, Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. In fact, I say it just about every time I’m teaching somebody or some group about photography, or giving one of my workshop presentations. A boring subject in great light will usually make […]

The US Flag – forever in our hearts

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

Picture: The US Flag and the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, Oahu, Hawaii. Seeing as how this is the 4th of July weekend, a big Holiday here in the United States where we celebrate the birth of our country, born out of the Revolutionary War, I thought a picture of the US Flag would […]
