Bill Hale's 2010-2011 scenic Hawaiian photography portfolio is now available for viewing and ordering prints!

Portfolio 2010 - 2011


I am very pleased to announce the unveiling of my 2010 - 2011 photography portfolio.
This collection of photographs represents the most inspired and complex body of my work to date. I started shooting for this portfolio back in October 2010. The Fall and Winter sunsets are over Waikiki Beach, mostly on Sunday afternoons and early evenings from Dukes Waikiki, while Legendary Hawaiian super star Henry Kapono performs his weekly gigs there…

Most of the images contain 3 or more photos in a panoramic composite and are lager that the traditional 8X10 format.
For the first time I'm offering print sizes of "12 X 12", "16 X 10" and "18 X12"!
All photos are printed on Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper by myself to insure the highest quality.

The 12 X 12 series consist of 6 prints. All taken in or around the East Oahu coast line. All are multi-layered images compiled in photoshop for a seamless/timeless photocomposition. Why 12 X 12, you may ask? I wanted to reprise the days when I was shooting 120 roll film. I miss the square images that the 2 1/4 negatives would produce.

The ten photographs that make up the 16 X 10 prints are my collection of stunning Waikiki Sunsets and beautiful seascapes from the area surrounding the stretch of beaches from Diamond Head to Kahala/Waialae beach!

The paragon of this collection is my Panoramic photographs…
These are some of my favorite images that I have ever created!
Pulling from my early photographic influences such as Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and Henry Gilpin (Mr. Gilpin was on of my photography instructors when I attended Monterey Peninsula College in Monterey, California). I have infused the classic styles of these master photographers with the technology of today. Where I can envision images, capture them, and in photoshop, compile, size and tone what my mind's eye saw…These extraordinary and remarkable images will be a great addition to any collection.

I also have included in this years portfolio 20 8X10 photographs. These photos represent what I see day to day here in Hawaii. Ranging from stellar sunsets to marvelous ocean coast lines that make up this part of the Island...

All images are to have a print run of 10 numbered additions (1 -10) for public acquisition and 4 letter additions (A - D) for private use.
These photographic images are limited to this collection and will not be made available in this form/style/paper/printer/configuration again…
All photos are signed and numbered by the artist/photographer and come with a corresponding Certificate of Authenticity.

Peace and Much Aloha
