It’s hard to believe that it’s already February in this new year! I’m currently on Maui, marooned on shore because of a quick moving storm that’s brought strong winds and locally heavy showers to the area, putting a damper on my humpback whale photography. However, the inclement weather gives me an opportunity to share my latest story about the island of Maui, photographed for Virgin Australia’s inflight magazine, Voyeur. The story is online in the January 2017 issue and features an insider’s take on our favorite Hawaiian Island. The story proves once again that there is always something new to discover from a wonderful taco truck to the classic Hana Highway. Take a quick break from your winter and enjoy a stroll on the island of Maui. Mahalo for visiting and a hui ho!
We discuss ideas about creative community, growing my business, what’s in my bag and some tips for the youngsters just starting out.
It was a fun interview and you can read it in its entirety here.
Thank you Adhesive&Co. for the shout-out!
Last week we wrapped up a 4 day shoot at The Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA. If you are planning on visiting the Boston area, or need to stay near Harvard University, this is the place! The property recently went through a large scale renovation and needed proper images to showcase the gorgeous upgrades. We spent 4 days photographing interiors for the hotel’s advertising needs.
The first image for their campaign is online!
Here are some behind the scenes from our production.
Tanque Verde is a beautiful cattle and guest ranch just outside the city of Tucson, situated on 60,000 acres of gorgeous desert landscape. The property also is located adjacent to Saguaro National Park, home to its namesake cactus.
The property boasts all the amenities of a luxury hotel, however the authentic American West experience is what really drew me in. I’ve loved horses since I was a child and take every opportunity to pack my riding boots for a shoot. The desert landscape is expressed beautifully at Tanque Verde.
The ranch offers walks with a naturalist guide who can identify the myriad native plants and animals that you’ll see either on foot or on horseback.
Certain nights they offer an outdoor bbq, complete with fire pits and margaritas – their signature prickly pear margarita is not to be missed! You can get those at the Dog House saloon which is open daily. If you want to take your holiday relaxation to the next level, check out their spa offerings.
I could have easily spent a week photographing at Tanque Verde, and I look forward to my next visit!
