About Me

Hawaiian Style

Aloha, I'm Don Slocum

I'm a lifelong a professional photographer living on Hawai'i Island, which I have called home for over thirty years. Originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan I  moved to Hawai'i and have continued to develop my photography skills, much of which I have  learned by my own studies coupled with some formal training, I've  been blessed to  also receive  guidance from various local artists here on the Big Island. It’s been great living in a supportive photographic community like the one that exists on Hawai'i Island.

 Beginning my career photographing fashion, performers, and commercial projects, I eventually gravitated to landscape photography,  inspired by the natural and raw beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. I became interested in photography when a friend gifted me a camera while I was in college. I left regular college to pursue photographic studies at a community college in Ann Arbor, Michigan. While in Ann Arbor  I covered rock  music events, for a local independent newspaper, including the Rolling Stones, Bob Seger, Steve Stills and many other national recording stars.  I relocated and operated Vista Studio in Boulder Colorado before finally landing in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii in the late 1980’s.

 I continued to hone my photographic skills through a number of varied assignments in Hawaii, including, Commercial Interiors, Fashion, Weddings and Performance photography. In 2015 I  begin to  concentrated on the work presented here,  Landscape, and Astrophotography, of the Hawaiian Islands to reflect and share my love of Hawaii.  As may be clear from this collection photographs, I spend a lot of time at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, around the majestic Mauna Kea, and various locations throughout the Hawaiian Islands. With its rich assortment of locations and wide diversity Hawaii Island, where I live, may be unmatched for interesting  locations on planet earth. 

 I also tap into a spiritual connection, My time spent in Hawaii has been a spiritual journey and this has greatly influenced my photographic images.  As a trained intuitive many times I receive internal information about where to go and when. This nearly always results in spectacular images.  I really can no longer doubt it when I get the calling, day or night.

 My  early traditional photography skills greatly influence the work I do with digital cameras. While many artists today will layer or composite a number of images in the editing room, I prefer the single-shot approach, meaning that my images are actual captures of reality and are true events not a computer generation.  I continue to welcome you to join me on various adventures around the islands through group, individual classes, and personalized tours, or by simply hanging my work in your home or office.
