Some amazing photographers we’ve had the pleasure to work with.
Chris is unbelievably personable, easily approachable, and is a very good listener. I learned about texture, identifying three distinct points in a landscape photo, and how to use the lens’s f-stop in conjunction with the camera’s ISO feature to achieve various creative images. I am absolutely convinced that Chris can enhance any novice photographer's skill-set if his clients were committed to follow his suggestions. And, it’s not that complicated…sometimes it was as simple as shooting a particular scene with a different lens. Chris was a terrific mentor!
Chris took the time to individually tailor the sunrise workshop to my interests, I learnt about the technical aspects of photography simplified to my level of understanding. Through careful instruction I was able to utilise the features of my Canon 40D in manual mode enabling me to capture the dynamic movement of the ocean during sunrise at Makapu’u Beach Park. Chris patiently walked me through personalised well-organised information, expertly answering my questions on composition, camera settings and what to look for in a great photograph. Chris’ enthusiasm and passion for everything photography is contagious. I walked away with professional grade photographs while having a unique experience! Next time I’m back in Hawaii I will be taking multi-day Island tour.
I highly recommend taking one of these tours. You will not be disappointed I promise you that. You will see the beautiful places of Oahu and be surrounded by fun people who love to take photos just as you do. The drive that Chris has to share his own experiences with photography was proven by his teaching style. I will for sure attend more tours with Hawaii Photography Tours in the future:)
I learned about camera care, changing lenses and how to use my camera on manual mode. He also discussed and showed me examples of line, composition, and creative expression. Chris patiently covered well-organized material and had two cheat sheets for me to take away, one laminated and one foldable. I found answers to all of my questions about tripods and lenses. I was able to practice on both moving and still subjects and leave with a good grasp of how to adjust my camera settings. I can't wait to see how my event pictures turn out and attend a sunrise photography workshop.
Another great time! This was my 3rd time out with Hawaii Photography Tours…I have taken other tours, but Hawaii Photography is the best. Chris not only takes you to some of the best spots on the island, but provides you the information you need to take awesome pictures.
Perfect for those who need a “to the point” crash course on the basics of photography. You’ll receive a fully personalized camera class and hands-on tutorials that will challenge you to chose the correct settings.
