Hi, I am Vinnie

a natural light photographer

With a career spanning 20 years as a working photojournalist & cinematographer in LA & NYC, I have fallen in love with shooting candid photos here on Maui. Sweet moments, moments of mom and daughter laughing at sunset. Or honeymooners taking a romantic beach stroll. Or the rawr-ness of a family jumping into the ocean together. Portraits does not cover it, I capture moments of who you are. Moments of love. Moments of joy. Your special moments. It has become my privilege, my joy, and my passion. I am honored for that opportunity.


My professional accolades include teaching photography at The Boys & Girls Club in Burbank & Hollywood CA. I am commissioned to capture BTS B&W images during Fashion Week in LA, NYC and Miami annually. My clients include Cedar Sinai, USC Alumni, & Art Hearts Fashion. I have photographed thousands of artists for RAW Natural Born Artists. I've studied head-shot photography with Peter Hurley and my publications include: Elle, Cosmopolitan UK, and Vogue Italia.

I swear I’m not posing.
