Absolutely superb tour. Evan obviously has a great passion for photography and Hawaii and took us to some great locations. At each location, he explained the best camera settings and made me realise I've got a lot more to learn. I ended up with some really good photos of Oahu.

Our guide was very good about showing us ways to use our camera's to get more interesting pictures while taking them. Very helpful for people interested in learning more about what a camera can do. It was great that they had tri-pods to use to help get great photos. Liked the spots we went to to get different types of photos plus a chance to see more natural parts of the island.

Was a nice activity/tour but I felt that more time was spent by one photographer/guide of him doing a photo shoot of 2 tour participants and therefore limiting the time spent engaging with the remainder of us on the tour.

Had a wonderful time on the sunrise photography tour. Marie is extremely helpful and patient and had so many helpful tips. She took time to get to know everyone's skill level and interests. She had suggestions for the areas we visited on the tour and gave pointers that'll help beyond the tour.

I enjoyed this tour immensely so much that I followed up with the Island Tour afterwards. Marie was a very competent guide - be it with things to now or to do on O'ahu or - of course - how to get the most out of our photo shoots. The people on the tours had very different cameras and were on different levels of knowledge and expertise. I am a novice and learned very valuable basics, but also got to try some advanced technicques. We stopped at very interesting places and even though the first tour was drenched in rain - it was great fun. I definitely recommend this tour!
