A Note From Your Maui Photographer
Hi. My name is Ken, aka Maui Island Portraits. I’m a photographer here on Maui with a particular interest in, and some skill and experience in, outdoor, natural setting, on-location environmental portrait photography for families, kids, couples and weddings. Of course, I also very much enjoy capturing and sharing scenic digital images of sunsets, shorelines, streams and waterfalls, close-up flowers and surfing.
I have been living on Maui since 1996. I was born and raised in California and moved to Oregon in 1969 where I went to college earning B.S. and M.A. degrees. In addition to providing personalized environmental portrait and wedding photography, I also provide personalized therapeutic dialogue, both locally and online, with families, couples and individuals, as a master’s level, state licensed, nationally certified, mental health counselor.
I have been a professional photographer since the early 1970′s. I have done studio portraits, weddings, parties, children, pets, small product and real estate photography. Lately, I favor taking pictures of scenic landscapes, tropical flowers, surfing and, of course, people. Maui is a wonderful location for natural setting, outdoor, environmental portrait photography. My portrait photography aims to capture images of you, your partner, your family, in a beautiful Hawaiian setting in ways which showcase the environment, and you in it, preserving memories of your time on this tropical island, and enriching you as a person.
I use state-of-the- art digital cameras and high grade professional lenses. I like to ‘talk story’ during the photo shoot sharing information about Maui and the location used. It’s a fun, creative ‘activity.’ You will find yourself enjoyable engaged in the activity and quite satisfied with whole experience, including the product. When you receive the CD of well over several dozen beautiful pictures, you will be very pleased with the collection of images and glad you took the time to capture some special memories on this delightful tropical paradise island of Maui. For, as it is said, “Maui No Ka Oi!” (Maui is the best!)
Take a look around the gallery images and blog posts to get a sense of the locations and settings available for your personal Maui Island Portraits photo shoot activity. Make environmental portrait photography one of the activities you do while on your Maui vacation. Many who have done so are very satisfied as evidenced by their unsolicited testimonials.
