Your Tour at a Glance
Looking for something different to do in Hawaii? Oahu Photography Tours offer the “Sunset & Fireworks” Photography Tour” every Friday. This event is fantastic! We start by photographing Hanauma bay as the sun lights up its turquoise waters and abundant reefs. If you don’t have the chance to swim in the bay, you’ll have the opportunity to view it from above to capture panoramic photos of this world famous bay formed by a volcanic explosion.
A short hop down the road is the Halona Blow-Hole lookout and the Kaiwi coastline. This area of O’ahu is much younger than the rest, and its rugged feel shows it. The blowhole is a perfect place to capture postcard quality photos. Eternity beach is located just below the lookout. A famous movie spot for many blockbuster films.
Let’s take time to stop and smell the Plumerias in a botanical garden hidden in a volcanic crater. Depending on the time of year, you can be overwhelmed by the pleasant scents of these tropical flowers. We could be lucky to snap a photo of the elusive mongoose in the garden.
After a stop overlooking Makapu’u bay, we will fill our bellies with some delicious Hawaiian 7.5food at Ono’s Steak and Shrimp. Our guides do not like stopping at mediocre food spots. Ono Steak and Shrimp have built a reputation for having some of the tastiest, juiciest, mouthwatering food around. We don’t mess around when it comes to food.
Let’s walk off that meal on the white sands of Waimanalo Bay. Voted the number 1 beach in America in 2015, this beach will not have you guessing why it was voted so high. The ironwood trees that line the shore create a dreamy look as if you are walking through a fairytale forest to a hidden beach you would only see in your dreams.
Ask your guide to tell you about your next stop. This location was a major turning point in the battles led by King Kamehameha. Over 400 hundred Hawaiians were thrown from the cliffs in whats known as the Battle of Nuuanu. At the Pali lookout out, you will be able to capture perfect panoramic photos the span from Kualoa Ranch to Kaneohe Bay, and Kailua.
Let’s now find a place to set up for sunset. We have many different locations to choose from for your sunset photos. We don’t want to label where we are going because we pay attention to a lot of variables for the sun as it sets. No matter what, we will find a place to watch the sun paint beautiful colors into the sky as it says its goodbye for the day.
Did you know about the Friday night fireworks show in Waikiki? A joyful event that also happens to make for artistic photos! We’ll get you set up in a prime position to watch this sky performance as well as capture epic pictures. You’re going to love this!
Don’t worry, shooting in low light may be intimidating but we’ll teach you how to use your camera to play with light and darkness and to take stellar photos during darker times of the day. It’s easier than you might think! You’ll be able to carry these techniques and skills with you into the future, and the photographs you’ll capture from this photo tour will astonish you! This tour is a unique thing to do in Hawaii.
