Kauai Adventure Photography Workshops

Come explore the hidden secrets of paradise with your camera!

the love of Photography, education & Adventure!

         Welcome to Kauai Adventure Photography Workshops! We offer unforgettable photography education adventures for anyone looking to take their photography to the next level. Our instructors provide experienced, insider knowledge about the island and professional hands-on photography lessons relating to the technical and conceptual aspects of on-location photography.


We like to keep it fresh and no two workshops are ever exactly the same. We are not like a photo tour. We will not rush you around from place to place. This is immersive education for all adventure seekers with a passion for photography and travel. Delve deeper into the spirit of beautiful Hawaii and come away with a meaningful story through your images.

The incredible island of Kauai offers some the most majestic terrain and atmospheric lighting conditions for studying and capturing stunning images. From waterfalls to waves, deep canyons and soaring cliffs, to dense jungles and rolling plains, Kauai has an endless abundance of amazing photographic experiences.

So register today, grab your camera, pack your bags, and prepare yourself for the adventure of a lifetime!

Favorite Quote: “With photography a new language has been created. Now for the first time it is possible to express reality by reality. We can look at an impression as long as we wish, we can delve into it and, so to speak, renew past experiences at will.” –Ernst Haas
