Photos of Hawaiian Wildlife - Topside & Underwater
I moved to Hawaii six years ago and spent the first year entirely underwater working on a scuba dive boat as a Divemaster, which is where I first fell in love with photography. Since then I've had a camera with me nearly every day. It didn't take long before I went from photographing turtles and octopus to families and weddings - but I'm still not entirely sure how that happened! Along the way I've accumulated photos of some Hawaiian wildlife (mostly by chance, while I was at a photo shoot or going to or coming from one.)
So this blog post is simply to share with you some of the beautiful wildlife I’ve noticed in passing over the years. Click on any photo to see a larger version.
The following images are not particularly high quality - one, because the ocean water is seldom completely clear; two, I was still learning photography during this stage; and three because they were all shot with a point & shoot camera.
