Drew Sulock Lead Photographer

Originally from Philadelphia, has lived in several exotic locales throughout the Caribbean before settling on Maui just over five years ago. Throughout his life, he has always been amazed by natural beauty both above and below sea level. Drew has spent his entire adult life working on the water, and is inspired to share this world with everyone through photography. Most often, photographs do not do justice to the stunning sights that are found in tropical environments, but occasionally they can leave a lasting impression to be enjoyed for many years. Capturing special moments of nature, and sharing these images is the main focus of Drew’s work. Living on Maui has proven to be especially inspiring to his photography. Consistently surrounded by one of the most spectacular environments in the world, it is still often challenging to capture these scenes in a unique way. Because of this, Drew dedicates many hours, even days and weeks, to capturing a certain scene at their grandest. This often leads to long photo shoots, and many attempts to capture the perfect image to present to his friends, family, and the public. In his images, you can see this effort pay off in the form of unique lighting, interesting animal behavior, or a well known view from a different perspective. He considers his work to be “artistic nature photography” because his main goal is to create images in which people will be inspired to immerse themselves in nature, while preserving such settings for future generations.
