What do we owe photography?

  This blog comes from a place of contemplation and discussion.  What, as photographers, do we owe photography?   Recently I saw an image that was quite impressive from a photographer that had visited Kauai in the last year.  However, as I studied the shot I realized something wasnt quite right.  After approaching them privately […]

New Project! Help requested.

  Aloha all!   This is something that has been meandering around my mind for quite some time and I believe it’s time to give it a shot.  However, to do so requires a significant amount of assistance from YOU!   I will need to start collecting ‘selfies’ of a handful of people (roughly 6 […]

PRoPS Interview

  Was recently contacted to be a part of a new venture by being interviewed.  Took me a while to but finally was able to answer their questions and it just went live.  Here is the result.   <3 aF   http://blog.propitup.com/photographer-feinberg-props-creators-blog/

Waimea Canyon in late afternoon light with rainbow and waterfall

Waimea Canyon and a Rainbow

  After living on Kauai for 8 years Waimea Canyon blows me away every time I make the trip up to visit.  I’ll forever remember my first visit, not knowing what to expect, and coming up the path to the great reveal to the canyon below.  Nearly had tears in my eyes.  It’s one of […]

Twlight looking down Po'omau Canyon deep within Waimea Canyon on Kauai

Po’oWow…an adventure in to Po’omau Canyon

  Waimea Canyon on Kauai’s west side is still on of the more amazing things I’ve ever seen (even after all the travel I’ve been lucky enough to do).  Not only is it so colorful and different than the rest of Kauai but it is also hides plenty of secrets in its many side canyons.  […]

"The Great Dunes" (unreleased)

The Great Dunes

  Back in August 2014 I had the opportunity to meet a friend from college and head down to the Great Sand Dunes National Park.  Arriving late in the afternoon on our first day we quickly decided to change our plans and spend both nights camped at this awesome location.  The tallest dunes in the […]

Large surf crashes on the north shore of Kauai as the spray is backlit by the setting sun.

King’s Cauldron

  Back in mid February I had the opportunity to work privately with a client on a workshop this afternoon.  With the surf being up to significant levels, 15’+, I knew that my usual go to spot would be a bit more challenging than usual.  After shooting some waterfalls we made it down to the […]

Haupu Mtn as seen from Mahaulepu near Poipu, Kauai

Haupu & Naupaka

“Haupu & Naupaka” Epic clouds that briefly were above Haupu Mtn during our 2015 Workshop as seen from Mahaulepu. It was SUPER windy this day which doesnt come across as much unless you see the choppy ocean. The small naupaka was hanging tight along the rocky coastline. Enjoy! aF


Wizard’s Touch…a Workshop adventure

  Day 1.  Actually not even more than a couple of hours after meeting our Workshop clients we found ourselves at the first stop of the 6 days we were to take exploring and photographing the island.  Given that the waves were up that day, and Ke’e Beach the destination, we made a pit stop […]

Close up of a purple orchid at the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden in Hilo.


  While co-leading a 6 day workshop on the Big Island last year with Kory Lidstrom we stopped over at Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden just north of Hilo for some different scenery.  While exploring the beautiful gardens I came across these orchids.  Unusual flowers always this particular specimen caught my attention.  I used a long […]

Heavy sea mist hugs the Na Pali coast as the setting sun illuminates it along the cliffs.

Sea Smoke

  It’s a funny thing having an image in one’s mind and then trying to go after it.  As time has progressed I find my ideas are more and more subject to the ephemerality of nature (yes that’s a word…or should be).   This particular afternoon the conditions were aligning to go after one of these […]

Sunset as seen from under Waimea Pier on Kauai


  It had been years…many, since I had last taken a camera to shoot the Waimea Pier.  The chance came up after a camping trip to Polihale on the west side of Kauai.  On the way back home it was late enough in the day that we decided to stop by and catch a sunset […]
