Hawaii Women's Photography Retreat October 26-November 2, 2013
The 7-day Women's Photography Retreats have been absolutely wonderful. The next one is October 26-November 2. The combination of photographing and then working creatively with the images we've photographed is very exciting and fulfilling.
A participant review from a recent Retreat:
"I would highly recommend the retreat to others. It will take you places you never imagined. I came with doubts about my abilities and left with a renewed respect for myself as a photographer, and now as an artist. Kathleen leads and teaches with no judgment, and you are able to create your own dream and vision. Having the retreat in the beautiful land of Hawaii is a plus, not only for the beautiful location, but for the restorative time as well." --Jill King

Workshops, Retreats, Private Sessions & Hawaii Photo Tours
I offer basic photography and composition, digital infrared photography and Photoshop workshops in Hawaii and wherever else that I teach. I have been teaching Beginning Photoshop for Photographers since 2004, and will continue to teach this course online through www.BetterPhoto.com. In addition to the workshops I teach, private sessions are available in my studio. We can create a custom format so that you can choose exactly what you want to learn-- basic photography, using digital cameras, Photoshop, digital infrared, Fuji transfers, handcoloring,etc. Sharing a private session is also possible.
I also offer photo tours of Hawaii from 1/2 day to 3 days (Big Island) with instruction and critiques, or just the tour. If you stay at my vacation rental, www.tropicalhideawayhawaii.com, I can offer a discounted package deal with a tour or private session. Please e-mail for availability.
Hawaii Vacation Rental
"Tropical Hideaway" is located about 20 miles south of Kona, close to the best snorkeling, kayaking, diving, and bays for swimming with dolphins on the island. I rent out the very charming, Hawaii style studio apartment. If you're interested, please check out www.tropicalhideawayhawaii.com for pictures and information. For bookings, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Whale Journey Film & DVD
I have almost finished a 28 minute DVD about humpback whales, to be available in 2013. Whale Journey is an experiential and poetic film about humpback whales, with stunning underwater footage from Tonga, including whales initiating contact with people. It sheds light on who these magnificent beings are--their vast intelligence, and their importance in the planetís ecosystem. It contains informative quotes from scientists about the whales, interspersed with video footage and slides, plus a memorable sound track of originally composed music.
Please visit the website, see the trailer and read more about whales at www.whalejourneyfilm.com. The trailer is also on You Tube at http://youtu.be/iRc213xrvkI. The Facebook page is called Whale Journey. Please "like" it and recommend to friends. Thank you!
