I notice there are some great photographers and members..but not a whole lot of feed back or support from the members...come on guys...if we all want to make this a wonderful site for all of our hard wok and creativity...I think ...more feed back is necessary of the members...I hope you don;t mind my input..omg..the last member I see with comments is March
thanks for the commetns! actually, i don't have any professional editing programs...not even photoshop! i use my HP R607 point and shoot with its included macro and supermacro settings, and normally just use "auto-enhance" in windows photo editor if anything...very little editing, if any! what you see, is what it is! nothing better than natural beauty....
If you check our website at www.mauiphotofestival.com and go to the contact page, you'll see that we are all residents of Maui and have lived here for more than 20 years. We want to create an event that benefits all of us: Our attendees, our presenters, our sponsors, and the Maui community. Yes, we want to benefit, too, but until this takes wing, we aren't quitting our day jobs.
Still, we believe in our concept and are ready to work hard to make it a reality. We won't be able to do it alone. We are going to need a boatload of volunteers. And we are relying on word of mouth to get the news out for this first festival ... so we appreciate this venue and hope you all will spread the word and direct people to our web site: www.mauiphotofestival.com. Mahalo!
Having attendees shoot their own images on the beach is a lot different than having a commercial shoot on the beach. I think you'll find that all of Maui's public areas require permits or licenses to do business there. Shoots on private property obviously require the written permission of those property owners. We intend to follow all laws and property rights, as well as exercise our right to take photographs, during our Maui Photo Festival & Workshops.
I would love to hear about the legal restrictions of shooting on Kaanapali Beach. While areas can require permits for professional photo shoots, I would appreciate if you could post a link to the reference.
Lucky for us we're on private property. Our host property is the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa. The first event is September 16-20, 2009. You'll find complete information at www.mauiphotofestival.com
haha! i completely forgot i signed up to this website. how cool?! i will for sure get some pics up soon. im at the 'rents house hangin' with Camryn right now. Jeff's hungover...but excited for Ozomatli tonight!
Mahalo! I love Hawaii, and it is always good to view photography from the islands. I am happy to share my shots from camping on the islands and hopefully someday, I'll be able to actually live there and not just visit from time to time.
