My Maui Site

Welcome to The Perceptive Image

Photography Inspired by the Beauty all around Me

My goal as a landscape photographer is to capture an intimate moment and bring the viewer into the scene as if they were standing next to me.

I have had a strong connection to the ocean throughout my life, from playing on the beaches as a child, surfing during the 60's and 70's and windsurfing ever since. Windsurfing is what originally inspired me to visit Maui. Now 30+ years later I am still windsurfing but in addition I have added capturing the beauty of the island through my photography.

All of the images on this site are from the Hawaiian Island of Maui and the California Coastline between Monterey and Marin Counties. Hopefully you will enjoy viewing them as much as I have enjoyed the pleasure of taking them and presenting them to you.
