Would you like to have a Private Photo Tour? Any of our main photo tours can be turned into a private tour where you and your party can be at ease at each location. Here are some reasons why you might want to take a private tour:
  • I want to have one on one assistance from the professional photo guide, helping me capture the best shot and also helping me better understand my camera.
  • It is important to me to be alone with my family while exploring the island and not have to deal with anyone else’s needs.
  • Either myself or someone in my group has some special needs, whether it is a disability or young child a private tour can really help in these situations.
  • I have more than the max amount of 7 wanting to attend the photo tour. Our Private Photo Tours will accommodate up to 10 guests.
  • If there is a location I prefer to stay longer than the normal shooting time.

Theses are the types of questions you want to ask yourself as well as your group with thinking about taking a Private Tour. We can fine tune any of our main tours into something really special for you and your group. With a max pack of 10 a large family with love being together during the day as we explore the island capturing great photos. This will also allow the guide to snap a few group shot of everyone together. Below are the tours that can be offered private and the pricing.

We have two different price levels of private tour. One price will be for 1-4 people in the group. The other will be if you have 5-10 people in your group. Taxes and fees will apply.

Then, come face to face with the Ko’olau mountains. Followed by the white sands of Waimanalo. Local food fills the belly before you’re left breathless from the views of Makapu’u Beach Lookout and Hanauma Bay.

My daughter just got started with photography and my entire family loved the idea of going to Hawaii to get some great shots. She was especially excited and I thought it would be a good idea to book this tour so we could all learn about photography together. We all return was some beautiful images and we use many of the fundamentals that they taught us to go on photography excursions around our house! Thank you so much for your knowledge.

It’s pricey but you really get the full attention. The staff was wonderful, we were in charge of our time and we didn’t need to be rushed. Very educational.

My brother had an accident and had to use a wheelchair for some time. I wanted to do something nice for him. We booked the private tour so he could take his time and not feel pressured. He was sooo thankful and happy about it. Not only we got amazing photos but it was a beautiful time with our family
