The most incredible moments in Lyle's life have revolved around beauty and a connection to this amazing world we live in and the wildlife we share it with. He has been high above a sudden, heavy snowstorm rolling into Yosemite valley in the spring. He has been alone with Humpback Whales in warm, crystal clear water. He has watched the full moon rise over the Space Needle and downtown Seattle on a brisk fall evening. He has had the open jaws of a Great White Shark inches from his face. He finds joy in taking these beautiful moments and distilling them down into simple, compelling images.
As the owner of Pueo Gallery, Lyle is incredibly excited to be able to share these experiences and how he sees the world in his very own space. To be able to live on Maui with his family next to him supporting this wild life is a dream come true. In the last half a dozen years before settling on Maui Lyle lived in California (twice), Washington (twice), Utah, and Oregon. Hawaii is where he belongs.
With over a million dollars of art sold to collectors in half a dozen or more countries, Lyle is also proud to have his photography hanging in numerous resorts and condos around Maui, including the Westin Nanea Ocean Villas, Honua Kai Resort and Spa, Ka'anapali Ali'i, Hale Napili, Wailea Point Village, Wailea Palms, Kihei shores, Pacific Shores, Aston at the Maui Banyan, Ka'anapali Shores, Sands of Kahana, Kahana Sunset, Maui Sands, the Masters at Ka'anapali and more.
Prior to Covid, Lyle shared some of these special moments by leading small group wildlife tours to swim with the Humpback Whales in Tonga and the Great White Sharks in Mexico. With an emphasis on providing life changing wildlife encounters, he focused on teaching photography and post processing in equal measure to responsible stewardship of our oceans, respectful wildlife interactions and conservation. Capturing unique, impactful images does not have to be (and absolutely should not be) done at the expense of the wildlife or our oceans. If you might like to join this exclusive family of tour guests at some point in the future if they restart, reach out to be added to our list!
You can find Lyle at the gallery Sunday, Monday and every other Tuesday, unless he is traveling for photos!
