We had planned to reopen Hawaii School of Photography for in person classes in June of 2021. Unfortunately that will not be happening and we will remain closed. Mahalo for ten great years. It has been a pleasure to work with all of you. However, we are not through teaching! We just published our Retrospective: 5 Decades of Photography. The e-Book consists of over 130 images spanning the years 1978 to 2021 along with my memories, thoughts and some mini lessons regarding how some of the images were created. PLEASE NOTE: This collection of images, thoughts and mini lessons is offered for free. Perhaps it is my “official” retirement from commercial photography and/or teaching. We will post articles and/or eBooks from our archives, so please do check back from time to time and follow the drop-down menu above to find what I hope are interesting and valuable lessons. I hope you find something interesting and useful here. If you do, then please consider making a donation of any size to the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Hawai’i (https://unitedcerebralpalsyhawaii.org/donate-online/) or a chapter of UCP in your area. This collection represents my 15th (and perhaps last) book or eBook and none of them would be possible without, first, my parents’ love and support over the years, and second, the therapies I received and the advice my parents received from United Cerebral Palsy when I was very young. This retrospective is one way I can give back. I will repeat a request for donations several times throughout this book. Mahalo if you can give and mahalo for 5, now going on 6 great decades either way! It has been quite a ride!
