About Us - Steve Ibach

Aloha! I am a professional photographer based on the picturesque island of Maui in Hawaii. I mainly shoot fine art landscapes, wildlife and action scenes. Along with my wife, Cathy, I seek out beautiful and exciting locations to capture the awesome world around us.

I have always admired the fine art photography on display in Lahaina, Makawao and other locations throughout Hawaii and elsewhere, but found the prices to be out reach for most people. I considered opening a gallery to share my work and my passion but instead recently decided to take a different approach – making fine art photography affordable to everyone.

Therefore, I developed this website and partnered with professional photo labs, the same ones that print the gallery art that sells for so much, and others to present and offer my gallery quality art online at prices often a quarter of the prices you will find in fine art stores in Hawaii. Without the overhead and inventory needed to maintain a physical gallery, I can offer the same quality fine art pieces at a fraction the price, all delivered right to your home or business.

My interest in photography started over 30 years ago when I was a teen working with my uncle who enjoyed taking pictures as a pastime. When I was in my early 20’s I got my first SLR camera, a Canon AE-1. This film based camera was state of the art at the time offering the ability to take high quality photographs without the need for a medium format camera.

As the years progressed I keep up the hobby, moving into digital with the first Canon Rebel. Now many upgrades later I currently shoot with a Canon 5D Mark IV and a Canon 7D Mark II along with a growing collection of professional lenses.

I am an entrepreneur at heart and have owned two successful businesses (and one not so successful one!). As of 2017, my wife and I turned our current business, Hawaiian Experience Spa, over to our son Mike so that we can focus on this current venture of making gallery quality photography affordable.  Hawaiian Experience Spa is the number one day spa in Arizona and is based around the culture and traditions of Hawaii. Treatments offered include traditional Hawaiian lomi lomi massage, Maui relaxation massage, coconut sea salt lomi lomi, Eminence organic facials, lomi for lovers couples' experiences and much more. Many of our fine art photographs are on display at the spas.

We hope you enjoy viewing our online galleries as much as we enjoyed creating them. Nearly all photographs are available for sale in several mediums including my favorite, high gloss metal prints. But whatever type of print you choose rest assured it is printed on professional equipment from a high resolution digital negative prepared and optimized by me for the highest quality print results.

Mahalo Nui Loa,
