“Life is all about enjoying every sunset and looking forward for the next sunrise”
– S. Shergill
Let the Sunrise Tour inspire you
We begin with a spectacular beach sunrise. We pick you up an hour before and drive to a local’s beach for capturing the beauty of splashing waves, tide pools, and the new morning sun. We choose several locations off the well worn travelers path where you can experience authentic Hawaii while capturing the natural beauty of our aina ( land ).
Our Secret Spots include vistas of the 2.5 million year old Ko’olau Volcanic Mountain range, ancient trees, sacred Hawaiian temples, tropical bamboo forests, and the most beautiful white sand beach on O’ahu. Our photo road trip includes a stop for a quick breakfast ( no host ) at a local Kailua coffeehouse.
We are local photographers and naturalists who love photography and sharing the hidden places no one else will take you to. As experienced photography teachers and guides we assist you with pro photo tips whether you are using a mobile phone, point & shoot or DSLR. Experienced photographers will appreciate all of our unique locations and those who are new to photography will like the simple non-technical hands on approach to learning to take good photos. We are committed to you capturing stunning images.
If you love landscape photography with dramatic magic light this is the tour for you.
There is no other tour on the island like this one. The Sunrise Photo Tour is a great way to start the day. You’ll have photographed unique places that only locals know about on Oahu.
All the Tour photos displayed were taken while on the Sunrise Tour. However please keep in mind that we do change our locations to accommodate the season and the weather. We get you to the best spots possible for that particular day. We do get rain from time to time…usually it’s a sprinkle and then it’s gone but if we know that it will be raining the entire time…we will cancel the tour. We are committed to you capturing incredible photographs.
Our tours are limited to 7 people with a 4 person minimum before we go out. During low season there might be a tour that does not meet the minimum in that case we will cancel the tour and you’ll have 3 options – Go on another day, pay additional for a private tour or get a refund. Please be kind and no whining if the tour is cancelled.
Our photo tours are limited to 7 adults. Children aged 10 years and older.
