09 Mar The second Maui Photo Festival & Workshops set for August at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa
The second Maui Photo Festival & Workshops, set for August 25-29, 2010 at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa, will again blend classroom sessions, location shoots, real-world assignments, photo excursions led by pro photographers, and event-long competitions for both amateurs and pros. In the evenings, we’ll gather in the Paradise Cinema, our own outdoor big-screen theater on Kaanapali Beach, to view the work of our presenting pros as well as images of the day’s work entered into competition by festival attendees and presenters.
Of course this sort of festival could happen anywhere. That’s why Maui will continue to be just as big a star as our presenting pros. We’ll start each day with optional golden-hour excursions that will feature some of the most beautiful landscapes and seascapes in the world — including a trip to the top of a volcano — to shoot some of the most spectacular sunrises.
Then we’ll all gather in the Monarchy ballroom for our morning keynote. The rest of the day will be spent in breakout sessions, allowing us to target program content to digital novices, intermediate, and pro topics, as well as the digital darkroom.
Afternoon sessions will allow for hands-on opportunities, demonstrations, and optional off-site excursions where underwater photographers will take attendees to explore Maui’s reefs, ocean-going catamarans will pick up attendees from the beach to shoot Maui from the water and the fearless will be able to hop aboard a helicopter to get a birds-eye view of the island, accompanied by former aerial combat photographers. Our goal is to have MPF attendees capturing all the best of Maui.
The cost for the four-day festival is $595 but we are offering a special early-bird discount ($100 off) through April 1, 2010. While your lodging and airfare are separate, our hosts at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa are offering a special MPF room rate available through our website. More complete information and online registration is available at www.mauiphotofestival.com. Subscribe to our e-mail newsletter and you’ll be the first to know when we add more presenters and new optional excursions.
