DAVID BOYNTON was born and raised on O`ahu. For the past 35 years he has been photographing Hawaii’s natural environment, with photographs appearing in dozens of local and national publications. He was the primary photographer for four books: Kaua`i Movie Book; Kaua`i: Ancient Place Names and Their Stories; Kaua`i The Garden Island, a Pictorial History; and By Wind, By Waves. He’s been a writer for local magazines, and several books including Discover Hawaii’s Natural Forests and Spectacular Hawai`i. He did both writing and photography for Kilauea Point and Kauai’s National Wildlife Refuges; Kaua`i Days; Flowers, Images from Hawaii's Gardens; and Na Pali, Images from Kauai's Northwestern Coastline.

Boynton had been a teacher for the Hawai`i Department of Education since 1971. He was the environmental resource teacher for Kaua`i School District and the founder and Director of the Koke`e Discovery Center until his untimely death in February, 2007.

The extensive stock photography collection primarily features Kaua`i, but also includes the other main Hawaiian Islands. He was as passionate about photography as he was about protecting and preserving the natural environmental beauty of the islands.
  SUE BOYNTON combines management and creative design for the business along with a wide range of printing services.  

Sue was raised in California, but has lived on Kaua`i for over 20 years.  “I have been looking at David’s beautiful images for many years and decided to follow my heart and fulfill a dream in owning and managing a business,” says Sue. Her main goal is to preserve and archive these images and make them available for use. 

Sue and David worked together on the production of two recent books, Kauai Days and Flowers, Images from Hawai`i’s Gardens.

Sue Boynton offers a huge stock of images from their archives, along with recent photography by Sue suitable for publication, matted prints, and fine art Gicle`e’s. In addition, Sue is an expert on photographing fine art for reproduction on canvas, fine art paper or photographic paper.
