“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense,
about what is being photographed”
– Ansel Adams

What People Say About Us
“The BEST way to see Hawaii… and to keep seeing it when you get home!”
I am a documentary filmmaker from Australia and I have nothing but praise for Blue Hawaii Photo Tours. I came to Oahu to pursue a film project inspired by the famous Hawaiian Duke Kahanamoku, who, in 1915 gave a surfing demonstration at Sydney’s Freshwater beach – an event widely celebrated as the birth of surfing Down Under. I hired Marie from Blue Hawaii Photo Tours as a location scout to get some classic Hawaiian shots for my film. Marie arranged an excellent tour, which included a visit to a breathtaking waterfall on private property (talk about off the beaten track!) – we had the whole area to ourselves, there were no tourists and no crowds, just perfect photo and filming opportunities! Marie is very knowledgeable and took me to the best locations for sunrise and sunset as well as sites of significance in Hawaiian history and culture. She has a beautiful new clean van filled with professional equipment and imparts her technical expertise with clarity and enthusiasm. I learnt a lot and had so much fun!
As a result of hiring Marie, I was able to not only capture excellent footage for my film but also have an authentic Hawaiian experience. I cannot recommend her services highly enough so will conclude by saying… book a tour! You will LOVE it! – Jemma, Australia
