Morning Photo Dive

A perfect morning for scuba diving off an island near Maui.  I upgraded to a Sony a6300 will the Meikon underwater body, and I couldn’t wait to use it on the morning photo dive.  We dove in at about 30 ft. and dropped to 60-70 ft. right away.  The visibility was around 100 ft. and the dive went excellent.  The camera didn’t have any leak issues, and it was awesome to use the underwater zoom function with the depth of field that the a6300 has.

Exploring the Road to Hana

"Canyon" on Maui

Our friends have returned to Maui, and we decided to show them a good time exploring the Road to Hana.  We wanted to really check out some things we had never seen before along the Road to Hana, and we found some epic scenes.  We found beautiful orchids, incredible Maui canyons, and coincidence worthy of a fireside tale.  In one trip to Hana, we have once again buried our pasts and improved the present by letting ourselves be taken in by the phenomenal wilderness. After our long trip around the Road to Hana, we finally arrived home in Kihei, and … Read More from Photographer on Maui…

Powerful Maui Sunset Photographs in Kihei and Wailea. These photographs were taken as the sun was approaching the horizon, during the golden hour. Two of these pictures were taken in Kihei, and the other (with the rocks) was taken in Wailea. These sunsets are a Maui photographer’s dream, and so many people gather every night to take in the sunset and photograph its final moments. These photos were all taken during the last week of February 2014 and March 2014.   “Ripples” Kihei Sunset by Photographer Kevin Hoffman
