What you'll do

First I'll pick you up in Waikiki at our meeting place. We'll begin with a spectacular beach sunrise along the South East Coast of Oahu. There, we witness the beauty of splashing waves, tide pools, and the new morning sun. I'll teach you how to use your camera and mobile phones to capture the beauty of the sunrise.
Now breakfast! We'll stop for a quick breakfast ( no host ) at a the local Kailua bakery.
Take your cameras and phones back out! From there, we go on a scenic road trip along the Ko'olau Mountain range to dramatic vistas along the Pali Hwy. We will stop at tropical waterfall.
Along the way I share ideas on how to go from snapshot to photograph. We talk about getting the right exposure from your cameras and mobile phones and composition tips to capture the story.
At each of the locations along the way will be an opportunity to take pictures of Hawaii's unique, exotic and natural beauty. We also discuss how to edit your photos from your camera or smartphone device. I give post production tips on how to do an overall edit with your best images.
Share and wow your friends on Instagram & Facebook!
Other things to note
Guests should call 24 hours to confirm pickup time as the sunrise time varies during the year. We pick up one hour before sunrise. Wear closed toed shoes. Bring water. We stop for breakfast after sunrise. Make sure we have your cell phone number.

Aloha. I'm owner of Blue Hawaii Photo Tours. I've been leading small groups of guests around the island to scenic locations and teaching photography for over 8 years. Previously I created unique images for a variety of clients as a commerical photographer. My work in Hawaii began with a documentary on Kaho'olawe, one of the eight Hawaiian Islands. Last year I exhibited my landscape photographs of Oahu at a local gallery. I have a passion for Hawaiian history, culture, geology and wildlife. I volunteer for Malama na Honu - Care for the Turtle - on the North Shore.
My personal photography work revolves around Hawaiian wildlife - it's birds, the Hawaiian Green Sea turtle and Monk Seals. My other photography love is the dramatic Hawaiian sunrises and sunsets. Let me show you how to capture stunning images of the island.

Where you'll be

We'll be at some of my favorite beaches and vistas along the Windward Coast of the Ko'olau Mt. Range where I teach photography in a outdoor classroom. Sandy's Beach has lava rock formations and Makapu'u has a sweeping vista of the mountain range.

don’t forget you can’t bring your children with Marie. If you really want to bring your child then you have to pay a private tour ~ 500 usd. Marie won’t kidding about that :) Anyway, places chosen by Marie are beautiful and the experience is absolutely amazing. Highly recommended !
