Aloha! Welcome to my Family Photography web page, I'm happy you've found it!  A Washington, DC native, I've been a Maui resident since 1983, and a professional photographer here since 1999. Some of you have come here via referrals on social media, notably Facebook, and travel related sites like TripAdvisor and Yelp, among others, so thanks for taking the time to check me out.

I'm an "older" gentleman with an offbeat sense of humor that my many happy clients find endearing (or so I'm told). I'm fully licensed by the State of Hawai'i and I'm fully insured. As a pro for the past 21 years, I dress professionally, and I conduct myself in a professional, but light hearted manner - one of the elements needed to help assure your satisfaction with the pictures I'll take. 

I believe my pricing is fare - it's not changed much in over 8 years - but I'm also aware that there are a good number of what I call "newbie" photographers doing business here, those who charge undeniably inexpensive prices in trying to get a share of the business. This may be attractive to you, but before you hire one of these "low ball" shooters, please ask them to show proof that they have the State GET license, and adequate business and liability insurance, too. If not, I would strongly advise you to look elsewhere.

Again, thank you for your interest in my photography - as alluded to above, your satisfaction is my prime goal, so please allow me the opportunity to satisfy your Maui photography needs, you won't be dissappointed!

Much Aloha!  ~  Bruce Wheeler

I'll then upload the better part of those pictures - high resolution, full-size, "mildly Photoshopped" and copyright free - to a "privately linked" SmugMug online photo album, usually within 48 hours of your session.  Once they're online, you, and anyone you share your album's link with, will be able to view and download the entire album (and individual pictures, too) for up to a full year.

Mornings Only: 2 to 10 persons, $225; for 11 or more persons, $250

PACKAGE 7W-2: "CHOOSE UP TO 50 PICTURES FOR 'CUSTOM' ENHANCEMENT IN PHOTOSHOP ©"  With this package, I'll often take an easy 200 to 300 or more pictures during your session. The resulting high resolution, full-size, copyright free images will first be uploaded to a "privately linked" SmugMug online album, usually within 48 hours of your session. You can then choose up to as many as 50 images from among those found online for further, custom enhancement in Photoshop. The "50" fully enhanced pictures will then be uploaded, at maximum resolution, to an all new (separate) album. The album, with the original pictures will remain available online for about two months from the date of your session, but the new album with your fully edited pictures will remain up for about one year (unless you choose to have it removed sooner). Additionally, anyone else who has the private link(s) to your album(s) can also view and download their choices of pictures as well.

MEET TIME DETAILS:
.
Morning Sessions generally run for (up to) one full hour, commencing at about 9 or 9:30 - depending on the location and time of year - as the ambient light is at its best then.  Evening sessions usually begin some 45-minutes to an hour before actual sunset, depending on the size of the party.  Note: Strong tradewinds and/or passing showers are more prevalent at pre sunset times than in the morning. Think blowing hair!


Have something special in mind? Run it by me, I'm always open to suggestions! For meetings or special events coverage, let's talk.

~ FURTHER DETAILS~
.

Most sessions will run for (up to) one hour, or a shade more. During that period your photographer will take as many "creatively composed and photographed" pictures as possible while he's together with you, in all conceivable groupings, configurations and locales within the general area where your session takes place. The total pictures yield often runs from "about" 150, to well over 300 (the actual number is largely dependent on the number of participating persons, especially so with young children). Please go here for a more detailed overview of what to expect when you book me for a session.
.
SO, TO CONFIRM YOUR SESSION IN MY CALENDAR: I'll need a completed Booking Application/Agreement Form, and arrangements made for a required 50% (pre-tax) minimum down payment. (Full payment is required for short notice bookings - within three weeks of your session's date.) Any balance due will be charged at the time of your arrival on island (visitors), and on day of service (residents). Pricing is subject to change without notice, however all confirmed bookings will be honored at the original agreed upon amount if desired.
..
Additionally, here are links to my two most popular session locations: Charley Young Beach, in Kihei, South Maui, and In West Maui, near Lahaina, Launiupoko Beach Park. These are my suggestions, but I'm open to yours. Restrictions: The State of Hawai'i Department of Land & Natural Resources (DLNR) strictly prohibits commercial photography anywhere on North or South Ka'anapali Beach, or at "Big Beach," aka State Park at Makena. I am a "commercial" photographer.

All Package One pictures will be available in an Online Album by default, but you may opt to have them put in Dropbox, or uploaded to a "cloud" or ftp server of your choosing instead.

WHAT TO WEAR?
I prefer it when my subjects dress to reflect their own individual personalities, and I like bright colors, as in the picture below. Bold, primary colors, especially Hawai'ian prints, also get a pair of thumbs up. Some families like the "uniform" look; matching white/tan tops/bottoms or denim with white-or-pastel tops, etc. I, for one, am not very fond of uniforms. Whatever you wear, I urge you to dress in a manner that, when you look at your pictures in years to come, you'll be pleased with how you looked.

I love how this family is dressed!


An added bonus: I'll also provide you with a link to my Maui Sights, Scenes and Art Photos online compilation of 846 digital pictures that I've taken since 1999. Included therein are a great variety of floral close-ups, "helicopter shots," gorgeous beaches and scenic vistas, active and inactive volcanos, spectacular sunsets, hot rod cars, Japanese folk dances, Willie Nelson and a whole lot more! (And, you can download every one of them, if you wish!)


Your questions and comments are most welcomed and encouraged!

Mahalo nui loa - thank you very much - for your consideration of my services.
