The Maui Photo Festival & Workshops is about to kick off its third year and I am (finally) getting to go. Previous years just didn’t work with my schedule, but this year worked out brilliantly!

I take my job as official photographer and videographer for Go Visit Hawaii seriously–I have to, Sheila has a list a mile long of people wanting to take my place! 🙂 Even though I’ve taken literally thousands of photos in Hawaii (sample), I still consider myself an amateur and I’m looking forward to learning from some of the best in the business!

Here’s a sample of the workshops I’m salivating over…

  • The Art of the Landscapelandscape photography is one of my favorites!
  • Lighting Essentials and Visual Perception – I am crap when it comes to lighting portrait subjects. Unless it’s natural light, I am lost. Hoping to pick up some tips for strobes/flash photography.
  • Mastering the Art of Food Photography – Sheila will not let us eat a single bite of dinner, until we get some food “porn” shots. Great food photo tips are always welcomed!
  • Hula on the Beach – I have a couple of great hula shots, but this is gonna be awesome!
  • Considering Your Options With HDR – HDR is probably one of my strengths, but I still sometimes end up with halos etc. Hoping for some fine tuning tips here.

That’s just a sampling of the workshops on my agenda. Of course, I’m looking forward to meeting a whole bunch of photogs that are equally passionate about Hawaii photography…oh, and the pupus, love me some pupus!

There’s still time to register, so see you there!

  1. Hard to believe it’s only a few days away. Randy did a great job with the Hula Session back in ’09, and it definitely is one of the highlights of the week. You just don’t get access like that on your own.

    I had to juggle my schedule a little bit after I realized that the helicopter tour was on Thursday, not Friday as I previously thought. Depending on the flight time, I’m hoping to still make the Lighting Essentials session as well.

    A hui hou,
