In this episode of the Fuego Magic podcast, I sit down with David Parias a Maui photographer who specializes in underwater portraiture. This guy is a savage, he has been capturing beautiful images in Maui for years, we shared some good stories and laughs about his journey to where he is at today. For him it all began in Colombia where he grew up, he began with film photography and slowly evolved into the digital era. It was cool to sit down with someone who understands the trials that come with shooting photos in the water. We spoke about the unpredictability of shooting in ever-changing environments such as the Pacific ocean. How light is affected by the water, and what is it like to capture photos of wildlife while out in the vastness of the Pacific. It was an interesting conversation

If you want to get into water photography in Maui or anywhere else this is the place for you to gain some great knowledge. We talked about techniques, gear needed, conditions, interactions with clients, planning, mistakes, disasters, victories, editing and lots of other insightful things. I am telling you, This is an awesome episode. I LOVE water photography and it was one of the things that brought me out here to Hawaii to begin with.
