Although he has been shooting full-time for just several years, his passion for the craft developed long ago. As a kid, it began as a fascination with the magical ability of film to capture a moment of time, being able to hold it in your hand, slip it in your pocket, and share it with the world… at school. That fascination is still very much alive today, as Bruce strives to infuse elements of the moment into each frame, such as emotion, energy, and beauty, with the creative use of light and movement. His easy-going, unassuming personality and fondness for the ‘aina are also reflected in his work. From portraits of surfers on the beach to photos of native Hawaiian honeycreepers deep in the rainforest, he captures an integral part of life in Hawaii from a local perspective. After spending 24 years with an engineering firm on Oahu, Bruce kissed life in corporate America goodbye and moved back to his hometown of Hilo with his family to pursue this passion, and continues to artistically interpret his view of our beautiful island home through the lens.  photo image_zpsa024086b.png  photo image5_zpsaf5e0742.png  photo image6_zpsd1189b7f.png

In past years Stoll's photography has been a major influence on the corporate image of global companies like General Electrics, IBM and Microsoft. Without being compelled to show greatness, he nonetheless succeeds in making greatness visible with his architectural settings and interior shots. In his still life photographs even the most banal objects undergo a metamorphosis, which may be the result of intensive digital processing, which transforms them into objects of desire.  photo 32f00c382ca9996a3423d556c81f726d_zpsc2b71116.jpg  photo e43883cb6c62ff3d7454d75dc30c33ce_zpsc78c3589.jpg

 photo image3_zps461c4894.png  photo image2_zps8ecde7de.png  photo image1_zpsc6c5d396.png " When I first began to experiment with sea life photography I tried shooting small invertebrates for fun with my own old dslr camera and without any professional lights or lenses. I collected the invertebrates under water and then I've shot them in the lab. After two or three months of failure after failure I ended up with a few good pictures, which I've showed to the crew. It has inspired us to buy a semi-professional camera complete with underwater housing and strobes. Thus I've spent the following field season trying to shoot the same creatures, but this time in their environment. It was much more difficult, and I spent another two months without any significant results. But when you're working at something every day, you inevitably get a lot of experience. Eventually I began to get interesting photos — one or two from each dive. Now after four years of practice I get a few good shots almost every time I dive but I still have a lot of things that need to be mastered in underwater photography. And the most important thing — I love Sea." - Alexander Semenov  photo image4_zpsfad442dd.png  photo undersea-alexander-semenov-24_zpse488777a.jpg
