“It’s an illusion that photos are made with the camera....they are made with the eye, heart and head.”

Based on the beautiful and scenic island of Maui, Hawaii, my home-base of over 20 years, participants of all levels will work directly with me to gain new skills, ideas, and inspiration toward creating more powerful photographs.

The 10-hour INTENSIVE photo workshop will allow us time for an informative presentation period, in-depth photographic discussion covering topics specific to your current level and needs, and hands-on shooting techniques and guidance at a number of beautiful Maui locations. It will conclude with an after dark introduction to night photography and painting-with-light.

This is perfect for all levels of passionate photographers looking to gain a better understanding of both the technical and the creative aspects to making more personal, expressive, and dynamic photographs, while exploring a number of stunning locations that Maui has to offer. You will walk away with an understanding of optimal and creative exposure, discover valuable guiding principles for expressive compositions, learn how to achieve a stronger and more compelling image in-camera, and much more.

We will explore stunning landscape compositions in two of the three areas outlined on the map below and our time will include:
Capturing extended exposures along the island's most ruggedly beautiful coastlines
Shooting hidden waterfalls along the Road-to-Hana (optional/weather permitting)
Spending time photographing after dark using long exposures and exciting painting-with-light techniques

It's no wonder - this is my most popular workshop!

WHY CHOOSE MY PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS?

First, I work directly with you.  Whatever your current photographic level, my objective is solely on assisting you walk away with further technical knowledge, photographic inspiration and a deeper understanding of creative perspective and process.  

Next, I believe it is very important for an instructor to be able to showcase a strong collection of photography and success in the photographic marketplace before they attempt to pass on knowledge and guidance.  This is where information and inspiration is drawn from!  I was 15+ years down the photographic path before I began working with earlier-on-the-path photographers.  In my 20+ years as a photographer, I have:

Been earning my living solely as a professional fine art landscape photographer for 15+ years and continue to gain new collectors from around the globe.
Successfully assisted over 250 passionate photographers along their photographic journey in-the-field. 
Exhibited and sold work in galleries and exhibitions here in the US and internationally.
Been awarded by the International Photography Awards (IPA) with over 50 awards.
Have work in a museum collection that is seen by over a million people annually.
Been published in numerous publications including Outdoor Photographer, American Photo, Light and Landscape Magazine, Black and White Magazine, Wailea Magazine, and others.
Have worked directly with the top printers and fine art finishers in the country.
Have worked as a fine art photography consultant, gallery director, and as a self-represented artist and have sold over 3.5 million dollars worth of fine art landscape photography by the likes of David Fokos, Peter Lik, Charles Cramer, and others, in addition to my own work.

If you are looking for a professional photographer who is dedicated to assisting you along your own path towards creating more powerful and expressive images of your own, reach out and let's work together.

a recent testimonial:

“I recently had the great pleasure of spending a day on Maui with Scott. His all day intensive photography workshop was an amazing experience and one I will always be thankful for. He has helped me to take my photography to a new level by showing me how to peel back the layers to see what makes a successful image. It's not only about the basics . . . aperture, shutter speed, etc., but it's also about imparting passions and feelings to photography. How to translate all of the things that inspire us to pick up a camera and turn them into great images. Scott tailored the day to meet my particular needs and I highly recommend his workshops to photographers of all levels, beginning to advanced.”
