Lava Light Galleries
CJ Kale & Nick Selway
Two of the most gifted photographers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
I recently had the opportunity to do a photography workshop with Nick Selway. It was by far the most entertaining, educational, and exhausting 14 hours I have ever been lucky enough to experience!
It pushed my physical limits, challenged my fear of heights and I came home with photographs I never imagined I'd ever take!
If you ever get a chance to stop in to talk to one, or both of these incredible photographers, you'll absolutely love their incredible work, entertaining personalities, and crazy stories :o)
You can view their work on their website:
CJ Kale and Nick Selway own Lava Light Galleries on the Kona Coast of Hawaii. CJ & Nick are the first and only photographic artist to ever photograph the active volcano from the surf. They are the pioneers of a unique form of photography, they call Lava Surf Photography. They each show their unique view of the natural world in every one of their photographic art prints. Prints and limited editions are available in their Kona Gallery and online. Lava light galleries is store front on Ali'i Drive and is open most days closed when the light is right. CJ & Nick love to meet the people who enjoy their art and they make a major effort to be in the gallery a few days a week to meet their fans and supporters. Even if you meet one of their salesmen you can always ask when the artist will be in next and if they are not traveling at the time; you can come in and meet the artist.
Both artist have been featured in many of the worlds most prestigious magazines and have won many awards. Their work even hangs on the walls of the Smithsonian museum of natural history. As they have been indoctrinated into the ranks of Natures Best Photographers.
