About Me

Justin Kauwale

Justin Kauwale

Creator of A Picture of Hawai‘i

I have lived on O‘ahu for my entire life, except for the 4 years when I went to an engineering college. As an engineer, I am a very logical and systematic person, who sometimes gets caught up in the gear, the "rules" and the "formulas" of photography. On the positive side, this type of logic allows me to easily explain the technical portions of photography. Each week, I can be found at some site on O‘ahu taking photographs during sunrise or sunset. Follow my instagram, , to find out the latest spots or go to Join, in order to Join the mailing list to get the latest news and upcoming photo walks.

Sharing the best photography spots in Hawai‘i and teaching the necessary photography skills to capture Hawai‘i's beauty in a picture.
