We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations in Honolulu .

  • New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

  • Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

  • What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

    The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

    The event at Manoa Falls was good, Hoku is an excellent host/teacher he helped us with framing shits and explained the effects of different shutter speeds well. I definitely learned skills I can use in future.

    Portrait photography was new to me and wasn't something I was completely comfortable doing but Nigel made us all feel comfortable. Nigel was very knowledgeable and taught effectively. He gave each participant the opportunity to practice the skills he was teaching, which I appreciated.

    I found Mr. Nigel Wallace to be an excellent instructor who exceeded my expectations. He is a subject matter expert with vast experience and excellent people skills. In addition to conveying the technical side of photography, he keeps the application simple. Demonstrating examples and coaching class members through mini-projects while providing feedback and guidance. I would consider this a 'Master Class' and look forward to future learning sessions with Nigel.

    I was looking out my window around 6:00am when I noticed what might be the planet Venus, shining brightly, close to the moon. I quickly went to my lanai to snap this photo.

    This was my first attempt at astrophotography in Brisbane and was a trial shot more than anything. I went looking for an eastern facing foreground knowing that the Milky Way core would be rising at around 10pm from the east, leaving me few options where light pollution wouldn't be an issue. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't too harsh at vic point. I loved the foreground and the lightning in the distance on the horizon, and the satellite creaping in was another unexpected surprise with th

    This photo was taken a few years ago. I waited a long time for the right light and atmosphere. I was already cold when this picture appeared. I was very happy that my efforts were so generously rewarded.
