WELCOME!

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!

Kainalu is Back in the U.S.

Aloha, I am already in Texas but with the whole virus pandemic going on, we have to be quarantined here for two weeks, before we finish up our last process of deployment. It feels like we’re almost in an interment camp, since the facility the Army is using is one of the training bases in the middle of nowhere, away from the main town in El Passo and Ft. Bliss. I should be back home around late April or early May. Hopefully by the Hawaii is ok. I will continue to keep everyone updated about my status. I’m looking forward to returning home soon.
