FRENCH POLYNESIA

Photographing Wildlife in French Polynesia

Almost every time I travel I am ready to return home to Hawaii. I feel so lucky to love where I live and what I do for work. However, I always tell people there was one place I was upset to return from. That place is French Polynesia. The scenery, the marine life, the ocean, and the people all make Moorea an underwater photographers dream. On top of that, French Polynesia is a shark sanctuary so it is practically my paradise. I am so blessed to be able to spend time there during the Southern Pacific Whale Migration where I have gotten to interact and freedive with Humpback Whales. This collection of images are just a few of my favorite wildlife moments from my time in this tropical paradise.

Nothing makes me more excited than seeing my photos hanging up in someone's home. It is such an honor to see you like a photograph of mine as much as I do! All of my photographs are available as prints.
