Pictures from Paradise (picturesfromparadise.com)
We own and operate Maui's premier dive operation. (Ed Robinson’s Diving Adventures; http://www.mauiscuba.com )
We offer SCUBA boat tours, SCUBA instruction, snorkel instruction and tours, and International group diving tours. Our business reputation is renowned throughout the dive industry primarily because of the service and care we extend to our clients.
I am the owner and I am also an accomplished underwater photographer. (Sample images; http://www.flickr.com/photos/ocean-art/)
We are creating a website where we will direct our clients to a gallery of images consisting of photos of themselves during their dives and an art décor gallery of tropical underwater and island images. In either gallery they can purchase prints.
Target audience is wide open. Our dive clients will be directed to the website but the art images will be marketed to anyone looking for (primarily) underwater images. This could be businesses or the public looking for underwater art prints to be used for décor.
Most of our audience will be somewhat serious divers, professionals or interior decorators so the logo should not be too cartoonish.
I envision a vector graphic logo consisting of:
* a camera or readily identifiable photography icon,
* Tropical plants (palm trees or a graphic that suggests lush tropics)
* Marine life (could be fish or green sea turtle)
Note: if a fish, it should be found in Hawaii. If I like your design but the fish is wrong I will give you alternate fish suggestions
* A sun background can be explored
* a water surface foreground can be explored
* a beach scene can be explored
