My name is Bret Thompsett, I was born in South Africa and am now based in Oahu, Hawaii. 16 years ago I was given my first camera and after some formal training, a lot of film, and patience, I still have a camera in my hand. My background consist of Sport, News, and Portraiture, and through these elements and a slightly different view on life, I have developed my own style.
I spent almost 8 years as a News Photographer in Los Angeles. Much to say this killed my creativity and made me question myself as a photographer. Thankfully out of the game now and doing what I love once more - Creative and different photographs of wonderful moments captured forever. Thankfully now able to provide wedding photography services at great rates to Brides to be in Honolulu, Hawaii.
I am currently a freelance photographer and am working on a variety of projects. I am freely available for last minute wedding and engagement shoots, currently working in the water world that is wave and surf photography.
Please contact me with any questions regarding a creative project you may have in mind.
