REGISTRATION and more details:

Jon Ogata, a fine arts, travel and stock photographer is a native of Kaua’i and now resides in Honolulu, Hawai’i.  He first became interested in photography while wanting to document himself and his friends surfing.  This evolved into capturing the natural beauty of Kaua’i.  Since then, Jon’s subject matter has branched out to the rest of Hawaii while hiking and backpacking.  His travel photography which includes the American Southwest, Argentina, Bali, Egypt, Europe, India, Israel, Jordan, Morocco, Mexico, Nepal and Peru, is also some of his best work.  Jon’s introduction to fine arts photography came with a participation in an Ansel Adams workshop back in the ‘80’s.  He works with 35mm, and large format and is a member of the Sierra Club and the Grand Canyon Trust.

Paul Kodama is an educational specialist for the Hawaii State Department of Education.  He has contributed photos to DOE and other state agency publications and gallery exhibits.  He creates miniature palladium and platinum prints on hand-coated paper and has completed photo restoration projects.
