Whale Tales 2016 Feb 12-14, 2016 at The Ritz in Kapalua Maui

A week or so ago the director of Whale Trust, asked me to exhibit whale photography in the foyer of the 10th annual Whale Tales conference, happening in February in Maui. If that was not exciting enough, yesterday I got a call asking me to do a short 10-15 minute program with Marty Wolff on opening day.  The icing in the cake would be that I would follow Flip & Chuck Nicklin.  This father and son combination are icons in the underwater photography industry and have been my role models ever since my Grand Parents got me a subscription to National Geographic Magazine.  Needless to say I said yes!

So this week I am assembling a program and selecting a few portraits for the exhibit. I will also work on some sort of promotion so people can purchase a whale portrait and know that a percentage of the proceeds will go to Whale Research.

If coming to Maui, or if you live here try to check out this event Feb 12-14 at the Ritz in Kapalua Bay.  While on that side of the island check out the whale photography exhibit at the Beach Club in the Montage Kapalua Bay Hotel.

The weekend is packed with educational programs, fun whale watches, and a whole bunch of like minded people.  It’s going to be a whale of a time…..
