Why Sea Turtles, Whales & Landscapes?
The well-known beauty of Hawaii extends beyond its shores and into the surrounding ocean. With some of world's most stunning coastlines, flora and fauna, the ocean around Hawaii is full of artistic inspiration for ocean photographers.
Ocean life photography not only nice to look at but they also benefit conservation efforts by showcasing what's at stake when advocating for protecting the world's oceans. As you can see in my photos available for print and purchase, my two favorite subjects to take photographs of are marine life and gorgeous ocean landscapes.
Sea Turtles & Whales In Their Natural Habitat
Sea turtles and whales are some of the most popular types of Hawaiian sea life. Two main species of sea turtles include the green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) and the hawksbill sea turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata). In this gallery, you'll aslo see images of the majestic humpback whale. Ocean animal photography gives us the opportunity to see these majestic creatures in their natural habitat and come to understand them better.
Hawaiian Ocean Landscape Photography
The ocean can be breathtaking with its vast of blue and white waves. Images that show the size, scale and color of the ocean strike a sense of awe. By mixing in different elements of the surrounding beach, like the beach, animals and plants you get a true sense of how beautiful ocean landscapes can be.
Underwater Fine Art Photography
When you take a photo underwater it's as if you're capturing a hidden world replete with vibrant colors and other-worldly scenes. Underwater images allow us a glimpse at ocean life and provide a unique perspective that can spark a sense of serenity and greater understanding. With the proper photography equipment, underwater photos are a beautiful option for ocean photography lovers.
