I guess you could call me a niche photographer.  I’ve created this niche for myself by photographing Hawaii’s Hawaii Amakihinative flora and fauna, and the causes of their demise. Most of the images that I sell are of Hawaii’s birds and other flora and fauna in the Islands. In the next few pages I’ll give you some hints of how and where to photograph Hawaii’s native forest birds on your next visit to the Aloha State. 


You’ve heard it time and time again, “Know your subject”.  Intimate knowledge of a birds’ behavior will definitely get you better images. Maui Parrot BillThere's no doubt about it!   Photographing Hawaii’s native forest birds in the wild is no easy matter.  For some species, with very small populations, seeing the bird is next to impossible, never mind trying Hawaiian Hawkphotographing it.

For me, being a biologist has played a important role in my interest in birds, and photography has helped me learn a tremendous amount about Hawaii’s forest birds and their behavior.  As you know, bird photography requires a lot of time and patience just sitting and watching. But all this sitting over the years has taught me more about bird behavior than I could ever learn as a biologist.
