“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
— Ansel Adams

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 5-hour INSTRUCTIVE photo workshop will allow us time for an informative presentation period, general photographic discussion covering topics specific to your current level and needs, and hands-on shooting technique at a beautiful Maui location for sunset. 

This is perfect for beginners-to-intermediate-amateurs who are looking to gain a Foundation to Dynamic Photography. 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.

If you are staying in South Maui or on the Lahaina-side of the island, I will pick you up and we will venture out together staying in one of the two areas outlined below.

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:

As an enthusiastic amateur photographer I have tried many sources and educational opportunities to improve my photography skills but the recent workshop I took with Scott on Maui was the best by far. He covers every aspect of photography from mental and philosophical to technical and practical. His passion is evident and was particularly inspiring as we discussed a wide variety of topics over the course of the day. Of the many things I have done over the years on my vacations in Maui this is on the top of my list to repeat on my next visit. I would encourage any photographer who wants to improve their skills to consider taking this workshop. It’s time and money well spent."
