Experience hosted by Johnny

5 hours

Hosted in English

What you'll do

Explore and roam some of the most unknown sweet-spots that north shore Oahu has to offer whilst being photographed by a professional local. This is your ticket to the in betweens - a chance to fly under the radar and discover locations which cannot be found in a blog or a guidebook. Step into my world for the afternoon and I'll introduce you to the Aloha lifestyle in the purest form. We'll work together with the lighting/landscapes to capture this feeling in the photographs. Once we arrive to the north shore we'll find ourselves at the end of the road on the most beautiful secluded beach. Cruising through the first pioneer surf town we might stop to photo on angel wings or historic rainbow bridge. During the summer season we'll visit an unknown beach where you may view sun-bathing sea turtles. Since that is a very popular request among guests visiting the island I have chosen a beach which avoids high numbers of tourists where we can have a more exclusive experience with the turtles. Spoiler alert: if we are doing really good on time a surprise snack or local coffee stop by happen at some point before we arrive to most beautiful banyan tree and hidden forest. By golden hour we will have reached a secret fish pond with lush mountainous backdrop for our finale shot.
Other things to note
This is a moderately active experience although I don't feel special shoes are needed. However I would recommend bringing an extra change of clothes in the event you would like to switch up your look!

I'm a fun loving guy who traded his city life in 2006 for a fresh start on Oahu pursuing passions and happiness. I had dreamed of moving to Hawaii since I was kid and one day I just finally did! I've paired my love for photography with exploration by capturing guests in some of the most unknown scenic landscapes that this island has to offer. I'll Introduce you to a spectacular feeling of Oahu through this cinematic photography experience while discovering the perfect lighting and mood for your photographic memories.

Where you'll be

Now the secret island fish pond I mentioned is a bit off the beaten path and does require 10 minute walk to reach. Once we arrive you'll discover a mirror-esque pond with mountain reflection. Its stunning. Also the giant banyan tree and hidden forest is an easy 5 min walk with no incline. The secluded beach I bring guests to is one minute from the lot so everything in totally is very achievable without special hiking shoes etc.

Rated 4.91 out of 5 from 33 reviews.

Ended up taking pictures with Cody and had a great time! He had some great insight and stories to share about Hawaii. The photos we took came out great and we went to some amazing locations that didn't have a lot of people. Definitely recommend!

Cody the co host filled in and he was nothing short but phenomenal for my fiancé and I. We got a lot of history lessons, he took great photos of us, and overall was a great unique experience.

This was a great experience! Cody picked us up at the agreed upon cafe and drove us around the North Shore to take photos at special locations for over 5 hours. I usually don’t feel super comfortable having my photo taken but Cody made the experience very personable and relaxing. Got to see lots of hidden gems of the North Shore and Cody was very knowledgeable in locations and local culture. Would definitely recommend! He also knew exactly when my boyfriend was going to propose to me, and the photos turned out amazing! So happy!

Cody hosted! He was thoughtful and experienced. It was a truly special occasion. If you love to explore and get creative and learn new things, try this. He had helpful recommendations & really put me at ease in front of the camera. Plus, the work is simply stunning. Such an artistic eye!

Did the experience with Cody, Johnny's colleague. The trip to North Shore was really fun. Cody shared lots of entertaining stories about living and working in HI, the local hikes, surfers, food, tourist traps, and so on. We explored a couple hidden gems, locations with beautiful views and no tourists. Lovely experience, I only wish there was a bit more photography, slightly more pictures to choose from (both the spontaneous ones that Cody snapped along the way and the planned and posed ones). Definitely captured some good memories on camera though.
