Monthly Sunrise Meetup
Join us at the Hawaii Kai Starbucks every first Saturday of the month to grab coffee, decide and depart for the best sunrise location based on weather, wind, sun direction and group vibes. With a little bit of luck you will go home with amazing photos and a few new friends! We ask that you arrive on time as the group will most likely depart no later than 15 minutes after the scheduled time. If you missed the departure time then please check the comments below to see where the group went. We also ask that you be a little flexible regarding location decision as it may be a spot that you have recently visited. This event is all about getting up early and hanging out with a few other happy photographers while capturing an epic sunrise. We will not be disappointed if you choose to go elsewhere after the location has been decided. A few recommendations: Wear slippers but bring your shoes and leave them in the car if not needed. Consider wearing shorts that can get wet. There is a chance you could be walking in water up to your hips so use a backpack to carry all your items. Bring a headlamp or a flashlight as it will be dark while walking and setting up. Keep a rain jacket and an umbrella in your car. Bring a sturdy tripod and a remote shutter if available. A remote shutter will allow you to capture long exposures well over 30 seconds. Charge your batteries and empty your memory cards the night prior, but don't forget them in the morning! Always smile because it's going to be a great day! Any questions please post in the comments.

What we're about

Aloha Photographers!

Let's meet-up at the best spots on Oahu to learn about our camera, take amazing pictures, be creative, and have fun! We are a super cool community of Oahu photographers that meet around the island to capture memorable images and talk story.

RSVP for a photography meet-up to discuss the latest gear, swap tips and techniques, share images, learn the latest software, and of course take lots of pictures. We welcome photographers of all experience levels including brand new, amateur, and professional.

Do you need help with your camera settings and looking for motivation to learn? How about composing a shot to tell your story, or adding drama and creativity, showing depth and dimension, or simply trying to figure out your F-stop, ISO, and shutter speed? Ask us! That's why our group is so awesome, we can help.

Have you considered a photography business? There are members here that can provide assistance and recommendations for an assortment of photography related niches. Or maybe you would like to network with other business owners and build relationships that will propel your photo business to a higher level. Come out to the next event and see what's going on.
