Four Seasons Maui to Host Photo Expedition


MAUI, Hawaii — Two renowned photographers, Robert Caplin (New York, NY) and Peter Lockley (Denver, CO) are returning to Maui to lead a photographic adventure on the island from June 14-19, 2016, hosted by Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea as part of the luxury Resort’s Unforgettable Events series.

After a successful debut in 2015, the Maui Photo Expedition workshop will once again consist of on-location shoots, instruction demonstrations, group editing and critique sessions with all that Maui, one of the world’s most picturesque natural settings, has to offer—everything from volcano sunrises and secluded bamboo forests to spectacular sunsets on black sand beaches. Four Seasons Resort Maui, the island’s first and only Forbes Five Star resort, will serve as home base, welcoming participants to luxurious accommodations and amenities along with a choice of dining in the Resort’s three award-winning restaurants. You can visit Maui Photo Expedition YouTube video to learn more.

Caplin, an editorial and commercial photographer based in Manhattan, specializes in travel, documentary, celebrities and portraiture.  A contributor to the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Wall Street Journal, his work has also been published in National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, TIME and Newsweek.  His celebrity clients include Justin Bieber, Tiki Barber, Victoria Justice, Barry Manilow, among many others.

Lockley, a sports and portrait photographer, works with editorial and corporate clients to create dynamic and storytelling images. Earlier in his career, he served as chief sports photographer for the Washington Times.  He went on to work with such clients as ESPN the Magazine, the Colorado Rockies, and the NCAA.

“Participants will come away with a better understanding of light, composition, exposure, production, editing and printing,” says Lockley.  He adds that participation is limited to create an intimate experience, with plenty of time for the instructors to work one-on-one with Expedition members. There also will be time set aside to network with peers and local industry professionals. During the photo workshop, the participating guests will receive daily instruction using their own cameras. There also will be time for editing and reviewing work produced. Timing will vary each day to best utilize the natural light and opportunities of each Maui setting.

Expedition sponsor, Canon, will host a lounge where participants will learn about and have opportunities to try out the latest photographic products—valued at more than $250,000. Other sponsors will be Adorama, Tenba, and Alii Nui.

Pricing starts at $6,990 which includes all workshop fees and a five-night stay in an ocean-view room; $3,000 for each additional participant; up to three staying in the same room.   Reservations will be handled by Four Seasons Resort Maui through Maui Photo Expedition website.
