October 9th, 2017: Fly to Kauai. You are welcome to arrive at our Workshop headquarters anytime during the afternoon to unpack and settle into your room. The workshop commences with a group orientation and some classroom training this evening at 6:30 pm.
October 10–13, 2017: We’ll shoot everyday sunrise and sunset, with other shooting opportunities during the day as well. There will be options for day hikes in Waimea Canyon if you like. We will be taking a catamaran out on the water one afternoon for a sunset dinner sail along the NaPali Coast to capture it in it’s best light. With clear skies, we’ll stay out after sunset a couple times shoot the stars. We have numerous spots we’d like to take you but we’ll keep the itinerary flexible so we can do the right thing based on local conditions. We will have image review sessions as time allows and we’ll also be teaching our post-processing tips and techniques.
October 13th 2017: After the sunrise field session, we’ll celebrate our week and conclude our workshop together with a big hearty breakfast at one of our favorite local cafes! If you will be departing on the 13th from Kauai please try to schedule your flight out no earlier than noon. For participants planning to stay additional nights on Kauai, plan to check out from your room by noon.
This workshop retreat will be intense, fun, and highly educational! This is the best way to venture into the heart of Kauai and hone your photography skills while capturing amazing images. It is designed to be the most flexible workshop for a customized experience and unparalleled photographic opportunities.
We are not like a photography tour. We will not rush you around from place to place. This workshop is for you if want to capture the best images possible during your visit to Kauai. We will explore off-the-grid locations to find the hidden image possibilities. We will challenge you to push yourself and improve as a result. We make sure that our itinerary is flexible so we can adapt to changing lighting conditions to get the best images and be in the right place at the right time. These adventures are always unique and no two are ever the same!
Whether it's seascapes and mountains or jungles and waterfalls, we'll hunt down the best possible photographic possibilities bar none.
We specialize in fun and adventure, and we seize any photographic opportunities we may find. Our goal is not to limit ourselves to one type of shooting, but to teach the mindset of being able to photograph whatever you might come across in your travels with confidence and style. Check out the the workshop gallery to get an idea of what kinds of shooting we'll be doing along the way, and register for your workshop today!
"I am fairly knowledgeable and was worried the outing would be too basic. However, their vast knowledgeable and obvious and contagious enthusiasm made for a great night out. They were able to answer my questions and helped me leave with some unique photographs I would not have otherwise taken, a renewed enthusiasm for photography, and with great memories. This workshop is a must!"—Farzad T. (Los Angeles, California)
