Maui, Hawaii 2020






March 5-8, 2022

MEET AND GREET March 4 @ 7pm Kamaole Sands in Kihei, Maui

It seems a bit foolish that I am about to write a paragraph or two about a workshop location that most everyone is already familiar with. I mean, the mere mention of the name, Hawaii, is enough to make most of us yearn for the warm climate, the warm water and the warm tropical breezes as we envision a relaxing day on the golden sand beaches or a walk in the rain forest. Maui, Hawaii is an island in the Central Pacific with its sprawling Haleakala National Park and it’s volcano Haleakala, as well as the pools and waterfalls of Ohe’o Gulch, accessed via the very scenic, winding Hana Highway. In addition to the island’s many golden sand beaches (and black sand beaches too) you will stand in awe at the imposing ocean surf on the north shore while watching the brave men and women take on these giant forces of nature with their surfboards and sailboards.

Lush tropical vegetation seems to be at every turn, unless you are on the desert side of the island, where the area around Makena Beach is a landscape of massive lava flows from years gone by. As you can imagine, Maui has no shortage of photographic potential, from wide angle to telephoto and of course macro shots are everywhere, Maui, Hawaii will not disappoint.

Lodging will take place at the Kamaole Sands Condominium’s located on the south side of the island, in the town of Kihei.

The workshop will begin with a meet and greet, a gathering if you will, out in front of the office lobby at the Kamaole Sands and from there we will move across the street to the local park and enjoy getting to know each other and it is here where we will also make a daily schedule of where we will go and what we will shoot and what to bring and how long we will be out for each of our 4-days together but generally speaking, most days will start around 7:30am and go until 11am and then we break until 3pm and we will go until 30 minutes max past sunset which means finishing up around 7pm. And yes, we will be shooting at least one night, as late as 10:00pm, shooting some spectacular compositions of the Milky Way at Makena Beach, while being serenaded by the calming sounds of the ocean surf! 

All transportation is provided to each daily location too, so unless you want to drive, you do not need to worry about driving during the workshop.

Whatever your photographic desires may be, we will surely cover them all in beautiful Maui Hawaii. When it comes to a location for photographic learning, I can’t think of any other place that is more beautiful and welcoming.

*You are free to lodge anywhere IN the Kihei area, but I am merely suggesting the Kamaole Sands as a great place to stay and for sure it will be here where the meet and greet initially takes place. If you were to simply google KAMAOLE SANDS CONDOMINIUM RENTALS you will have a number of rental services to choose from.

To sign up for this workshop or ask to be on the waitlist, send an email to Lisa Phillips at [email protected].

We are going to make some lasting memories together-PROMISE!

All my best-
