To the Eyes of Hawaii Photography Club Website!

We are photographers of all skill levels who not only share our love of photography but also like to socialize with other like-minded people.

Our meetings are held on the 4th Monday of the month. Potluck is from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Our general meeting is from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Meetings normally consist of member presentations, short technical tutorials, the Theme of the Month Slide Show and a guest speaker.

Visitors may attend up to 2 meetings before deciding whether to join the club. with over 120 members, the meetings tend to be quite crowded and confusing to some so if you are there for the first time, please ask for our Vice-President, A.J. Jaeger.

See you at our next meeting!

Update from Kainalu

Aloha everyone at EOH,

I am writing to inform you I am still doing good up here in Afghanistan. We are at our halfway-Mark with deployment. So far a lot of things happened within this month. We lost one of the long-time Afghani barbers who died in a car bomb (being targeted by Taliban for years). He was the oldest brother out of the 4 that work at the barber shop here on base. We’ve experienced our second In-direct fire attack on 10/11/19, same day and same time like 9/11. I was again on a gun with my Sgt, that shot at the second rocket. I officially am getting my, “Combat Action Badge” from the 9/11 attack and being recommended for another award. As of now, the enemy activity has been increasing lately. Taliban and ISIS continue to fight each other while trying to raid our base. We trust our base defense and the special operations forces who have been doing a real good job preventing them from attacking. The good thing is, I bought a Canon EOS R to replace my 6D (since the screen cracked). Other than that, I’m almost one step closer to home. Take care everyone and I’ll keep you all updated on my journey.
