Extraordinary Visions

Where do we find the vision to take our lives to the next level? How do we summon the passion to keep “raising the bar”? How can we make our life less of a struggle and more of a joy? For photographer and creativity expert, Dewitt Jones, the answers to these questions lie in the images we hold about ourselves, our future and the way in which we grow.

Dare to Dance

program customized for meetings in Hawaii. The themes of Vision, Passion, Purpose and Creativity are interlaced with stories and images drawn from Dewitt's time in these beautiful Pacific Isles.

Clear Vision

Using his own exceptional photographs as examples, Dewitt helps his audiences see the world with new eyes and rediscover their own creative gifts.
