The beauty and diversity of the Hawaiian Islands attract people from all parts of the world. The remote islands are diverse, offering breathtaking and vibrant views. One of the reasons I started photographing Hawaii was to capture incredible moments that I almost couldn't believe I was seeing. I wanted to keep these memories close while sharing my experiences with family and friends. My passion for photographing Hawaii landscapes sparked my interest in printing my work and eventually offering it to the public to purchase for their homes and businesses. I noticed that my photography now had even more meaning. People could enjoy my photography in person for a lifetime. Former residents who had moved away expressed how much my photos meant to them to remember their home away from home. It is highly gratifying to see these reactions from my customers.
Hawaiian green sea turtles, or honu, are the most sought-after animal to see while in Hawaii. These gentle giants can be seen floating around in the water or resting on the shorelines across the Hawaiian Islands. While my primary focus is landscape photography, I love incorporating the fascinating iconic creatures in my photos. I love photographing them in the most dramatic and unusual scenes, such as under the milky way and beautiful rainbows or in front of a blazing sunset. Having Honu photography prints in your home is a sure way to create a relaxing environment.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, located on the Big Island, is full of surprises. It's home to the summit of the Kilauea Volcano and has allowed people to view volcanic eruptions safely since 1916. Although Kilauea is the biggest draw in the park, there are many amazing things to see. The night sky and the hazy atmosphere in the park, combined with the right moonlight, can create incredible moonbows. A moonbow is similar to a rainbow. Instead of the sun casting its light to create a spectrum of colors in the sky, the same phenomenon can happen when the moon is bright and either rising or setting above the horizon. In my photo, Vibrant Volcanoes, I photographed a double moonbow over Halemaʻumaʻu crater. Moonbow photographs have a calming effect, making them a great choice for artwork in rooms made for relaxation.
Hawaii is known for its incredible beaches. The tranquil aqua blue water makes Hawaii beaches some of the best in the world. Ocean photography can take you back to those stunning beaches year-round. In this photo, Kiholo Bay, I captured an aerial view of the uniquely shaped bay. The contrast between the black sand beach, lava rock, and the aqua blue water is distinctively Hawaii.
Look no further than the rainbow eucalyptus tree if you are looking for something out of the ordinary that will strike conversion. These trees are not native to Hawaii, although they are amongst some of my favorite things to photograph in Hawaii. Each tree is its unique piece of art. Their patterns are constantly changing as the bark of the tree peels throughout the year. I am always looking to photograph these trees with unique compositions to create compelling photographs. Rainbow eucalyptus tree photos are sure to add wonder and beauty to any room.
