M.Photog.,CR, Certified Professional Photographer

Digital Print Master and Photographic Artist

When you call Randy Hufford at the Institute of Visual Arts on Maui, you will hear him answer, “It’s a great  day in Paradise!”   He loves to share his enthusiasm!   One of Randy’s greatest passions is creating and selling his fine art images in galleries throughout Hawaii and the World.   A true craftsman, he is in control of the whole process from capture and editing, to printing and finishing his fine art pieces.

Randy has been a photographer since 1966 working for such clients as Mercedes Benz, TimeMagazine, Sheraton Hotels, Hyatt Regency Hotels, Marriott Hotels, RitzCarlton, Kobe Steakhouse, Maui Jim Sunglasses, Charisma Magazine, Surfing Magazine, Professional Photographers of America, Peterson’s Photographic Magazine and Picture Framing Magazine. He also writes educational articles for such publications as PhotoShopUser Magazine, Picture Framing Magazine, PFM Production Magazine, PPA Professional Photographer and Wide Format Imaging.

He holds his Master of Photography and Craftsman degrees with Professional Photographers of America and has been recognized twice by Kodak with the Kodak Photographic Excellence Award.

Drawing on the  knowledge and  experience he has gained from over 30 years of operating a custom photo lab and  art reproduction house,  Randy additionally provides  consultation on color management and other digital workflow solutions.   His consultations include input, manipulation, output and finishing techniques. Randy teaches at National and International events besides having his own training facility in Hawaii with classes on Fine Art Photography, Fine Art Reproduction, Digital Printing Workshop, Color Management, Preservation Framing Methods and Selling and Marketing Fine Art Photography.

He is clearly passionate about the technical aspects of producing art.   As a result of his constant striving for innovative solutions, he has helped research and develop a variety of products now used by many artists. Thanks to Randy we now have the Dual Edged Ripper – used to give a deckled edge to art prints, R & R Copy Systems – a simple and efficient way to hang and photograph art, and Premier Art Eco Print Shield – an environmentally friendly water based coating designed specifically for protecting and enhancing inkjet prints.

Randy was also commissioned by Epson to produce Epson Professional Graphics Finishing Touches, an instructional DVD. His latest educational project is a 5 DVD training set by Software Cinema titled “The Perfect Print”. It teaches in great detail the digital printing procedure from Soft proofing to finished product including marketing you photography as Fine art.
