About Guy Vaught Photography

I do lifestyle photography...from people, & rock bands, to events & action sports! I pride myself on being super well rounded as a photographer...in this day in age your not paying for a photographer per-say, your paying for his or her style & skill set witch can provide the results you want to achieve.

I have been shooting since 1999, and shoot both high end digital, and film

I show up on time, and I am very easy to work with. I have over 15 years of shooting photography, and I know how to meet all my clients' needs and produce great results!

    Guy has a passion for beauty in everything. Life, moments, things, people and everything else in between. You can feel the connection when you see his photos. So I guess you could say that his work lets you feel the beauty through your eyes. I have got to not only happily purchase a cpuple of pieces, but he also did onsite family pictures thay really captured our real selves and personalities!

    Where do I start with Guy Vaught Photography......
    My relationship with this Great Photograper goes ways back. He's not only captured my Family Memories over the years,he's also help me capture Lives Treasures that line my walls...To Me Guy is Not only Super Professional,but a down to earth,easy to work with Photograper .....He always went above & beyond! Not to mention he would also capture very natural shots of our families holding hands or just laughing at one another without us even knowing he was there.

    Can't wait to work together again.....

    Guy is a tremendous photographer and someone that consistently demonstrates caring for his clients. You can tell by the portrait, family and model photography that the people he works with are incredibly comfortable around him and the images are treasured by them for years to come. His lifestyle photography is interesting and it is different than much of the coastal photography out there. Guy sees beauty in things we day day to day and appreciate but often take for granted. His rusty bike lock image is a work of art! It's brilliant. If you have ever surfed the North Shore you know that the surfing community bikes down to their favorite north shore waves. The lock is a reminder to anyone who has ridden a bike to the north shore to surf and his image reminds us of how special the north shore is and how the culture of the north shore includes rusty bikes chained to fences with rusty locks. His landscapes are terrific with palm trees swaying in the wind, Waikiki under night lights and sunsets to die for. Whether you are outfitting a new home or office and need the soothing affect with work from Guy that gives us working environment reminders of the beauty of Hawaii or needing to do a family or model shoot, this "Guy" is your guy! He loves what he does and his passion is clear as day in every thing he does with that camera including delivering a finished product to art collectors and those hiring him on a private shoot that develops happy customers. Work with this "Guy"! He will deliver beyond expectation and with aloha spirit may very well become a friend!

    This "Guy" is AMAZING! From the first time I went to a lil coffee shop he was displaying his work at I was hooked. He was showing his work and donating his time to raise awareness to that hateful beast cancer. I got a print for my sweet Michele who is a survivor. She displays his work proudly in her home. As do I. When I look at his work it takes me back to my beloved island home. Thou I don't live there anymore I "feel" like I'm at home when I admire his work... He has captured it in his work!!! Be blessed always my friend!!!

    in the years i have know guy vaught i have known him to be a person of character. guy takes pride in not only his work and work ethic but his principles as well. he enjoys knowing he has done a great job, the customer is satisfied and he has charged a fair market price. i would find it very hard to see anyone having a negative experience with him, it is just not in his DNA.
