Tide Pools in Hawaii

Hawaii Tide Pools

My friends and I took a little hike out to some wonderful tide pools, and just like any other visit to the pools it was magical.  The waves were crashing over the rock walls and the tide was swirling around our feet.  Such an excellent day to chill at the tide pools in Hawaii.

A Day of Scuba

Bigeye Emporor

Hawaii Scuba Diving Photos We had an awesome day of Maui scuba diving (3 dives); doing a shipwreck dive, a deep reef dive, and a cave dive.  On the dives we saw a variety of coral, fish, monk seals, spotted eagle rays, and more, I’m so thankful we found a helpful site on lease options for the car that we took to this trip.  The fish species I managed to get in these pictures were Milletseed Butterflyfish, BigEye Emporor, and Hawaiian Damselfish. These Hawaii Scuba diving photos are few of many, check out the rest of our webpage!

Hiking the Lahaina Pali Trail

The Hike up the Lahaina Pali Trail Hiking the Lahaina Pali Trail can be an amazing experience. Starting from the south side of the Lahaina Pali Trail is the best, if you can get a ride back from the far end.  The Lahaina Pali Trail is 5.5 miles long and has quite an elevation change.  The heat is extreme when you start hiking up, but there are some awesome sites to be seen.  Hiking up takes up about 40 percent of this hike, and it is the hardest part about it.  Take a few breaks on the hike up the … Read More from Photographer on Maui…

Wandering Upcountry Maui

Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time upcountry Maui, taking a few pictures for some for myself and for some friends.  The first upcountry Maui photography in this series was taken in a State Forest on Maui, in the lush upcountry.   The next photo series is of photos that I took for a friend who needed to update her face shots.  Also enjoying the supreme green of upcountry Maui.

Maui Lava Fields Photography

Maui Lava Field Beach

Photography of Maui Lava Fields We took a walk down south today, through the Maui lava fields cut by The Kings Highway, a footpath reaching back to the late Maui Kings.  The lighting and weather was perfect to take some excellent photos, so we indulged!  There are several beaches stretching through south Maui, and these are photos of some of them in beautiful weather.  The red lava rock looks beautiful against the bright blue sky, and the greens in the Kiawe on South Haleakala are incredibly vivid.  Enjoy these photos!   Gallery from a Lava Field Hike Below is a … Read More from Photographer on Maui…

Hana Photography

Waterfall photograph

We went on an amazing trip to Hana this week, and had an incredible time just riding around. I took quite a few pictures with the GoPro HERO4, and also some pics with a Sony NEX-7. I wanted to try out the GoPro to see how good pics were with the bubble lens, make your own judgement! Taking Hana photography is as simple as it is challenging. To get equipment around in the rain to make it to the rainbows is always the hardest part. Waiting for the sun in Hana… I also got to take some awesome shots with … Read More from Photographer on Maui…

Maui Waterfall Hike

Maui Waterfall deep in the jungle

Maui Waterfall Hike This week we went for an awesome Maui waterfall hike. Our friend Danette had wanted to go to this large waterfall for a long time, and knew that it would be a challenging hike for a group to make (especially with the dogs). We all got together to make this epic hike happen, and even the dogs made it the whole way to the waterfall. This was a beautiful full day hike, and we saw what definitely was a treasured place by every generation that has resided here. This is not a public hike.

Surfing Lahaina

Repollo Surfing

This morning we went cruising up and down southwest Maui. We went all the way down to La Perouse before we realized the only good waves were going to be in Lahaina. We found the perfect spot for surfing Lahaina, went with it and got some really cool pictures. Ian Repollo rode some nice 5 footers and got some cool pics, really chill way to spend the morning.

Haleakala Crater Hiking Panoramas

Maui Photographer Kevin Hoffman

Haleakala Crater Hiking Panoramas At the end of June and the beginning of July, friends and I hiked the whole way through the Haleakala National Park crater trails to Paliku Cabin (and beyond). I took panoramas the whole way through the trail to document the beauty of Haleakala Crater. We proceeded to hike a few trails after our base hike as well. We also stopped in at Holua Cabin, and visited with the Nene Geese. We started at the trail “Switchbacks” and proceeded down all the way through to the beautiful lower crater.  These first few pictures below are of … Read More from Photographer on Maui…
