As a photographer, I chase these experiences and share my images with the world because I'm excited about them – I share my images because I want to spark curiosity in the minds of my viewers. I share because I want others to also witness the beauty of the planet. I share my images with the hopes of inspiring people to have the same drive, determination, and desire to protect it like I do.

My lens seeks to immortalize the human experience in nature in all its authenticity.

But it doesn't stop there. Mauiph is a visual journey that goes beyond the shorelines. It's about exploring the different ways of living, the vibrant cultures that dot our planet, and the rich tapestry of human expression. I believe in freezing moments that tell stories not just of waves but of the unlimited ways people navigate life.

Mauiph isn't just a brand; it's an invitation to dive into the boundless ocean of visual storytelling where the sea's soul intertwines with the untold expressions of human life and where humanity meets a deep connection with nature.

The full story

Hey there, I'm Maui, the soul behind the lens at Mauiph. My photographic journey is more than just snapshots; it's an ongoing dialogue with the ocean, a celebration of diverse cultures, and an exploration of the different expressions that define the human spirit.

Mauiph was born out of a love affair with the sea and a deep fascination for the stories that unfold where the surf meets the shore, the UNDERWATER world and the diverse cultures. Living on the remote Cocos Keeling Islands, I've learned to see beyond the waves—to capture the spirit of not just the ocean but the people whose lives are intricately woven with it.

Portraits are my passion, and every face tells a story—a unique narrative that I strive to capture in every frame.
