This unique, full-day (8.5-hour) Oahu photo tour begins in Waikiki with a hotel pickup in a spacious, air-conditioned van.
Join the professional photographer tour guide who will, throughout the day, point out the specific details of photography that are oftentimes not seen by the untrained eye. Learn how to use light, and discover what framing, shutter speed, focal points and other important topics mean to composing a great image. Then explore the best places — and find the best angles — in which to take pictures on this breathtaking island. It’s the best of both worlds: elite instruction with some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
The specific destinations and subject matter will vary depending on the day and the time of year, but some of the possibilities include sweeping coastal vistas, pristine beaches, sacred heiaus, flowing waterfalls, dramatic mountain valleys and in the wintertime, big waves and fearless surfers. Also, look for Hawaiian monk seals and green sea turtles.
Along the way, learn about Hawaii’s history, its wildlife and the geography from the naturalist guide who is not only an expert in photography, but also a Hawaii insider with an in-depth knowledge of the island of Oahu.
This full-day photography tour is suitable for all skill levels — from beginners to advanced shooters, using everything from smartphones to high-end DSLR cameras. There will be a break for lunch (own expense) on Hawaii’s North Shore to relax and get a taste of the local flavors.
At the end of the day, walk away with some incredible images, an abundance of professional photography tips that will last a lifetime and an appreciation of Oahu’s rich history and culture.
This photography tour ends with a hotel drop-off in Waikiki.
