As a result of donating shark photographs to the Humane society international, for a use in a campaign to end shark finning, I was interviewed by the Maui News. For those that might not know Hawaii recently banned fisherman from shark finning.

Here is a quote from the story.
"My pictures speak so I don't have to," Hoffman said. "Important environmental concepts are being addressed that I could never put to words. They have experts who write compelling reasons, and my images drive the message home. I hope my photographs evoke an emotional response."
