Every Sunset delivers the promise of a new dawn.

Sunset Tours start in the early afternoon before the magic light appears. We pick you up five hours before sunset to take you on an enchanted visual road trip around half of the island. We have carefully picked several locations where you create stunning images of coastal vistas, tropical lush valleys, dramatic waterfalls, ancient ruins, and white beaches. When the magic light arrives we have three different locations we go depending on the weather and light. Sometimes we are on top of a mountain overlooking Diamond Head and the Pacific coastline other times we find ourselves close to the ocean near the beach with silhouetted palms for the classic Hawaii shot.

After the sun goes down that’s when we capture some glittering twilight photographs. During the summer months we stay to photograph the fireworks on Friday nights. Then we drive you back to Waikiki in time for dinner.

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, pocket camera 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 photos. We are committed to you capturing stunning images.

The Sunset Photo Tour offers a variety of locations and lighting situations – perfect for landscapes. You’ll have photographed unique places that only locals know about on Oahu.

There is no other tour on the island like this one. The Sunset Photo Tour is a great way to say goodbye to another beautiful day in Hawaii.

I wanted to get a great shot of the sunset during my time here and I didn’t think that my camera was capable of capturing a postcard worthy shot. The instructor help me get an image that’s probably hanging in my office today!

My son is into photography so I decided to surprise him with this tour. Even though I’m not as knowledgeable as the rest of the people on this tour were, we both had a blast. It was a great experience!
