Please arrive 15 minutes before your selected start time for pickup. Your operator can coordinate exact time and location.

Waikiki hotels
Begin with pickup at your Waikiki hotel, and set out around the island to visit a series of five scenic locations with a small group of 7 people or fewer. Get tips on using the late afternoon light to your best advantage, and making the most of your camera settings, whether it’s a DSLR camera, point-and-shoot, or phone.

Fix your camera onto a tripod and experiment with slower shutter speeds to capture the changing light. Snap images of coastline views, tropical valleys, and a picture-perfect waterfall, experiencing local places that are off the beaten path.

Learn about Hawaiian history, wildlife, and geography from your guide as you shoot each location, then watch the island’s scenery light up as the sun sinks into the Pacific Ocean. On Friday nights during the summer, find the perfect vantage point to photograph the firework display over Waikiki. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
Stop At:  
This unique, 5-hour photo tour begins in Waikiki with a hotel pickup in a spacious, air-conditioned van. The sunset tour departs from the hotel in midafternoon, then a drive to spectacular views along the eastern coast, with locations selected for optimal afternoon lighting. Learn how to use light, and discover what framing, shutter speed, focal points and other important topics mean to composing a great image. Then explore the best places — and find the best angles — in which to take pictures on this breathtaking island. It’s the best of both worlds: a tour with an experienced local guide who shares their knowledge of the Hawaiian history and culture and a mini photo lesson with some of the most beautiful scenery in the world for a postcard-perfect sunset. Along the way, learn about Hawaii’s history, its wildlife and the geography from the naturalist guide who is not only an expert in photography, but also a Hawaii insider with an in-depth knowledge of the island of Oahu. This photography tour is suitable for all skill levels — from beginners to advanced shooters, using everything from smartphones to high-end DSLR cameras. At the end of the tour, walk away with some incredible sunset images, an abundance of professional photography tips that will last a lifetime and an appreciation of Oahu’s rich history and culture. This photography tour ends with a hotel drop-off in Waikiki.

Amazing tour
, Nov 2021
Marie was an amazing tour guide. I can tell she is so passionate with her work. She gave us a very thorough history of Oahu and Hawaii. We have two history buffs in our family, so we appreciated that. She took us to beautiful places. We availed of the tour because we wanted to have great pictures for our Christmas cards. And she nailed it. Thank you, Marie for all the valuable tips.

Communication Problem with the tour operator
, Oct 2018
The tour operator supposed to pick me up at the Ramada Inn on 9/28/18 at 5:00 pm. My plane landed at 1:20 pm. She called me from the hotel at 2:00 pm I told her I just got into the taxi from Honolulu airport. She said I probably wouldn't be able to get to the hotel another 20-25 min. and she could not wait since she had to pick up another participants. She offered me credit toward the next tour. I told her I had to catch the cruise on the next day and wouldn't be able to make it on another day. The reason I came to Honolulu one day early so I can join Sunset Photo Tour on Oahu before going to join the cruise ship on the following day 9/29/2018. I wasted time and money to come one day early. One thing I don't understand why the Sunset Photo tour start at 2:00 pm. I will not recommend this tour to anyone!!

The tour guide, Bonnie was amazing! I have been a photographer for many years and yet she was able to teach me more about my camera settings than I already knew. She took the time with everyone in the tour in order for all to get successful photographs. I would go again... it was wonderful!!

I purchased this trip for my husband as he had just bought a new camera before we went on our holiday to Hawaii. He said that the tour was excellent and he learnt such a lot about his camera and how to take the best photo's. They took the group to different locations so that they could get a variety of photo's. My husband wished he had taken the tour at the beginning of our holiday instead of at the end. he would certainly recommend this tour as the group is small so you get the most benefit from it.

RECOMMENDED FOR PHOTOGRAPHY LOVERS Well, such an amazing ride with Evan Austen with the sky high hopes of capturing the sunset. And indeed it was a great tour and the amount of photography tips, and his generosity in helping to capture water falls, beaches and ultimate sunset was phenomenal. ON top, me being a fond of Hawaii-five-O series, we were lucky to witness the Hawaii-five-O shooting and Evan is good at Hawaii history and places too. As mentioned in this tour activities Sunset Photo Tour on Oahu, the proper location, necessary equipment like tripod, and above all a wonderful guide Evan Austen with valuable photography techniques made this tour a remarkable one. I highly recommend and if possible try to double book Evan Austen!!! Thank you, Evan and Blue Hawaii Photography tours - you made our trip more memorable :

, Nov 2016
Our tour took us to places we hadn't seen yet on Oahu. Evan our guide was so helpful in assisting us to get the best possible shots. We got some awesome photos that we couldn't have done on our own. The small tour group was great - we got individual and personalised attention. Thank you Blue Hawaii Photo Tours, you've made our Hawaii holiday truly memorable.
