A Day with the Whales

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to capture the beauty and grace of the Pacific Humpback Whales, here’s your chance. Back by popular demand, I will be hosting my sixth “Day with the Whales” workshop on Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 from 9 AM to 5 PM. We’ll begin in the classroom, where you’ll learn how to setup your camera for the prevailing conditions, protect your equipment out on the water, and garner tips and tricks to getting great shots of the whales.

We’ll then board a 30′ rigid-inflatable boat for three hours to photograph these amazing creatures in the ‘Au’au channel. Last year, we encountered a breach-happy juvenile, a female with a calf, several competition pods and a mom/calf/escort trio that stayed with the boat for nearly 20-minutes! Who knows what we’ll see this year?

Back on shore, we’ll reconvene in the classroom, where we’ll download photos and you’ll learn proper non-destructive editing techniques. I’ll then teach you how to print your best image utilizing Hahnemühle FineArt’s latest papers.

1:1 Workshop

Have you ever wanted to take your photography to the “next level,” or looked at an image and thought, “I wish I could take pictures like that.”? Well, you can and it won’t take years to learn.

If you’d like to master a few tricks of the trade from a professional landscape photographer, I’m one of the few photographers in Hawai’i that offers personal workshop instruction. If you want to discover the secrets of taking incredible sunset shots, photos of mystical waterfalls or capture the colors of Haleakala, I’ll take you there and teach you the techniques to come home with a bevy of incredible images.

Group Workshops

I also offer group digital photography workshops once a quarter, covering such topics as Introduction to Digital Photography, Digital Workflow, Basic Digital Darkroom Techniques, and Mastering the Big Three: Color, Contrast and Light. Class sizes are held to 15 or less students.
