Meet Your Instructor: Darcy Fiero
Splitting her time between the Hawaiian Islands of Oahu and Hawaii, Darcy Fiero can usually be found at sunset where the Pacific Ocean meets the reef or in the rolling hills of the Big Island where the pueo gather and soar. When asked what she enjoys shooting the most, she quickly answers with an all-encompassing, "Mother Nature." Everything from the awe-inspiring heavens to the many splendors of the land to the wondrous cerulean blue of the sea, nothing is off limits to her. With her unique vision, Darcy constantly strives to create a work that invites the viewer in and compels them to linger, study, and truly feel that one captured moment.
