"Aloha, I'm Derek, the creative mind behind Tropictures. I've been soaking up Maui's vibes for over ten years, capturing epic surf moments and the stunning beauty of this island. Surviving the Lahaina wildfires was a wild ride, but it's all part of the story – resilient like Maui itself! At Tropictures, I'm all about sharing the adventure, not just through prints but by bringing you into the heart of the action. As a certified drone pilot, I add those extra wow moments from above. Plus, I make sure surfers get their epic shots pronto, right on their phones! Whether you're a surf junkie, a lover of breathtaking scenery, or just want to dive into Maui's visual tales, let's hang loose and explore Tropictures together!"
