What you'll do

We will focus on photo techniques while exploring nature and being exposed to uniquely Hawaiian subject matter and stories. As we walk, we will learn and practice: 1) macro photography capturing the stunning details of tropical plants 2) landscape photography featuring the Big Island's heritage, and 3) portrait techniques near the beach. As we go, I will touch on industry etiquette. This experience is best for amateur/hobbyist to intermediate level photographers with any type of camera.
Other things to note
Bring your own camera. Any and all kinds of handheld cameras are welcome (all the major brand names and all types cell to pro). Bring your own sun protection, water and wear comfortable walking shoes.

We learned a lot about the Hawaiian culture and photography during our tour. I’m thrilled to use the techniques I learned in the future. Ranae came across as a very warm person and made us feel comfortable asking questions. I highly recommend this activity during your trip to the big island.

Ranae is so friendly and she's so knowledgeable about photography and Hawaiian culture. She was happy to answer all my questions and I learned so much from her. I'm so glad we could spot nenes (hawaiian gooses) during our photo walk. Now I know the little techniques I can use when I take photos thanks to Ranae. She made me want to learn more about photography. I recommend her photo walk to anyone who wants to learn about photography and Hawaiian culture!
