Turnbull Studios and Sculpture Gardens Grows Gallery Space

Turnbull Studios and Sculpture Gardens located in Kahakuloa on Maui is a true gem! Following the windy road to get there can take some patience, but it is well worth the stop. The Turnbulls come from a family of artists, and they have created a beautiful gallery and outdoor sculpture garden that highlights their works. I am honored to have my work included with some of the best artists on Maui and to have Christine Turnbull be such a big supporter of my imagery.

Gorgeous wood working by the Turnbulls!

My prints featured in the gallery!

Steve Turnbull's beautiful work in the front of the gallery greets visitors.

Look for the large giraffe and whale carvings when to know when to turn.

The entrance to the gallery is marked with red signage and a large entry with a wooden fence.

Bruce's tools, collected from all over the world, to carve his beautful wood sculptures.

Stop by the studio and gallery the next time you are in the area and visit for a while. It is well worth the trip!

John Legend in Concert

My first real foray into indoor concert photography was this week at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. I finally jumped in a purchased a full frame camera (Nikon's D700) and love it! I paired it up with a Tokina 300mm 2.8 lens and away we went!
Previously, I have used a tripod indoors and was unable to get the type of images I really wanted with a high ISO. The full frame camera gives me much better results and I love the fact I can rip up the ISO all the way to 6400 and it will still be sharp. Check it out!
These are sample shots from the John Legend concert this week at the MACC.
