Latest Luxury Real Estate Photoshoot


My team and I recently photographed Cottage 5 at the Kukio Golf and Beach Club, a private, residential equity club located adjacent to the Four Seasons Hotel on the Kona-Kohala coast on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The cottages are some of my favorite residences to photograph here on the Big Island. Each Cottage I have photographed at Kukio boasts exposed timber framing giving a rustic yet elegant feeling. Cottage 5 consists of 3 detached pods or hales, two private master bedroom hales and one main hale with kitchen and living room fronting the pool/spa and Anchialine fish pond. Cottage 5 incorporates all the elements needed for that Hawaiian indoor-outdoor living experience.

Cottage 5’s location within Kukio is in a prime location as it is discreetly tucked away on the Fish Ponds yet a very short walking distance to the main dining pavilion, beach bar fitness facility, concierge, ocean sports, beach and swimming pools. Cottage 5 comes with its own Golf Cart parking garage so you are never more than 2 minutes away from getting around the Club or playing the two golf courses, Tom Fazio’s 18 hole course and the 10 hole course.

To see more images of this property at Kukio Golf and Beach Club please got to listing agent Harold Clarke’s website Luxury Big Island.

Model Home Photography for Kamilo at Mauna Lani Resort


Model Homes at Kamilo at the Mauna Lani Resort

Recently I was asked by the leadership of Brookfield Residential to photograph two of their new luxury model homes that were just completed at their Kamilo Community at the Mauna Lani Resort here on the Big Island. Brookfield Homes Corporation, the parent company of Brookfield Residential, is the fifth largest residential developer by land and housing assets in North America. Here in Hawaii they have a total of three communities, two on Kauai and Kamilo on the Big Island.

Kamilo’s homes are completed with luxury finishes throughout and are turn-key ready, ideal for a second home or a primary residence. KaMilo offers a gated community of 137 single family and paired new homes on the sun soaked Kohala Coast on Hawaii’s Big Island. This private community provides a resort within a resort with views of the Mauna Lani golf course, a neighborhood pavilion with fitness center, two pools, and outdoor entertainment area.

Several times over the last few years I have had the privilege of photographing for Brookfield Residential capturing images of the Mauna Lani golf course, pools, fitness center and as new model homes are completed. For more information on this great community please visit their website!

Hawaii Wildlife Center Ethan Tweedie Photography

Architectural Digest is the international design authority, featuring the work of top architects and designers, as well as the best in style, culture, travel, and shopping.” The Big Island’s very own Hawaii Wildlife Center is currently featured in the April 2015 issue of Architectural Digest. The feature highlights US design firms who contribute at least 1% of their time for pro-bono work for non-profit and the like, hence the name of the feature “Good Works.”

Ethan Tweedie Photography teamed up with the architectural firm Ruhl Walker Architects/Boston, one of 1300 firms nationwide who are a part of the One Percent program and photographed the Hawaii Wildlife Center now featured in Architectural Digest at a 50% discount to my normal project rate to help contribute to the project cause.

The Hawaii Wildlife Center was also nominated in American Architects top 50 buildings of 2014. You can see the rest of the nominees on American Architects website.

On Assignment at the McDonald Observatory, Fort Davis Texas

This past November 2014 the University of Texas at Austin/McDonald Observatory hired me to photograph their 3 telescopes in Fort Davis Texas.

During the four days on location my team and I took over 7000 images of astronomers, teachers, students, telescopes and directors from the ground, from a helicopter, on ladders and even from a boom lift! Above are a few highlights from the assignment.

Mahalo to the University of Texas at Austin, McDonald Observatory and the staff of both organizations that worked so hard to make this a successful commercial shoot!
