Oahu....

September 04, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Anytime you hop on a flight to leave San Diego, it's hard to think that you are going somewhere more beautiful than where you just came from.  However, when your destination is Oahu, Hawaii it makes it much easier. 

I was lucky enough to get to spend the better part of six days on the island simply to do photography.  My goal was to break out of my comfort zone of wave photography and try to take different sorts of shots other than just waves from inside the water…  I wanted to highlight the beauty that I saw while I was there. 

I spent most of my time on the North Shore, but did try to do some exploring around the island.  I am going to share some of the images here, as well as my new Oahu Gallery.  I hope you enjoy…

I went to the beach to shoot with the big green sea turtles on this morning.. so I just tried to find something else to shoot..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All the these waves shots were taken while on the North Shore.  Summer is traditionally very flat from a wave standpoint... so I was a little lucky to get any waves that I did...

This was the view I got to wake up to every day out side my rental on the North Shore...

Just some of the images that I took while roaming around the Island...

Can't go to Oahu without making a trip to Sandy's beach...

While shooting from the water is fun at Sandy's, it is always nice to play with new angles...

I love playing with Big Green Sea Turtles... 

Lastly, while waiting to board my flight in San Diego, I saw my friend and owner of SPL Waterhousing (who I use) Sean LaBrie.  Him and met up a few times to shoot waves and turtles.  Sean was testing out his custom housing for his 1Dx.  Good times!

Remember, if you like what you have seen here, make sure to check out my Oahu 2014 Gallery...

Thanks...
