I have always been a West Coast kid with a passion for photography. I absolutely love living here in Hawaii and meeting new people on the tours. If you come out with me, you will be taken around the island with a friend, not just another tour guide. Let’s have a blast and capture amazing experiences while we do it!

"ALEX & His Staff Are Outstanding"

Do your self a favor if you're looking for a fun time and see some beautiful places in Oahu take this tour. ALEX and his staff are outstanding. I have done the day-long sunrise tour several times and time flies by because you're having so much fun. Most tours treat you like cattle pack you in a van stopped at a location and tell you to go ahead and take some pictures not here with OPT they tell you the history of each location.

"They Made My Trip"

My tour guides were DJ and Calvin! They were both friendly and really awesome tour guides. They really showed what they loved about the island! They were also very flexible with the group, stopping to take certain photos or stopping to visit a local shrimp food truck. They really wanted us to fall in love with the island and they really accomplished that! I can’t rave enough about them. They made my trip to O’ahu that much better!

"Ask For Kurt, He's The Man!"

This photo tour is fantastic! Easy to book and very helpful/friendly staff. We enjoyed the photo tour -- all the best spots with the freedom to shoot our own photos and instructions from our guide on how to take better shots. Ask for Kurt, he's the man! He even stopped on our tour for Portuguese donuts and coffee. He gave us lots of tips about being on the island of Hawaii and some great restaurant recommendations.

"Instagram Tour Is A Must!"

The "Instagram Hawaii Photo Shoot Adventure" is a must!! So glad I came across it on my recommendations. I met great people and I have so many incredible pictures to remember this trip. Kurt was awesome, had great ideas to get the best pictures. Whether it's on your own (that's what I did) or with a group, this will be a tour to remember.

Certified Sustainable Tour Operator Sustainability Commitment Statement

We at Oahu Photography Tours support the Hawaii Ecotourism Association’s principles of sustainable tourism. We pride ourselves in educating our guests with the most accurate information about Hawaii. We also make it a point to train our staff with local laws and knowledge of wildlife protection. Every one of our guides is trained in current CPR and First Aid practices. During our tours, we ask anyone that smokes to please but your butts in the trash. If you see trash on our tours, please let a guide know and he/she will pick it up. Please bring a reusable water bottle on the tour, buying plastic water bottles only creates more trash and you are pretty much paying for something that is free anyway. If you would like to join us on a beach clean up, follow our Facebook page for more info or contact us. We are not tree-hugging hippies, we just don like trash on the beach and dead animals.
