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.

Phenomenal Island Sunset

"Purple Dynamics"

Hawaiian Island Sunset This beautiful island sunset was captured at the far reaches of Maui’s south shore in the Hawaiian Island chain.  This sunset was captured by Maui photographer Kevin Hoffman.  An island sunset looking onward to a storm is often one of the most colorful sunsets one can watch. The purple to orange range/dynamic in this sunset was one of the most beautiful seen to date.

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.

Maui Maternity Photo Shoot

Maui Hiking

"Trippy Ripples"

I went wandering through Hana taking photographs of Maui hiking with friends. I also did a great amount of pet photography and nature photography while taking pictures of my friends. Hiking deep in the forest, a photographer can find true solace.

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…
