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 90 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, Eddie Freeman.


The next EOH Monthly Meeting will be in-person at the St. Louis Clubhouse at 7:00 pm on March 27, 2023.

March 31 - April 2 2023 - Hawaii Convention Center



We are holding our annual Step Out walk  https://donations.diabetes.org/site/TR/StepOut/StepOutContent?pg=entry&fr_id=13608 at Kapiolani Bandstand on April 22 from 8am -12pm. We are looking for a few photographers to join us and capture the event. I’ve worked with Eddie Freeman in the past on several events and have been blown away by the images he captured. . Any photographer willing to participate will receive a parking pass, t-shirt, snacks, and our gratitude. Appreciate your consideration.

Email: JSchack@diabetes.org if you would like to volunteer.

"5 Photo Story" will be a new feature at our meetings. . It would be similar to the Contemporary Photo Exhibition where a "portfolio" of photos which is called Visual storytelling or Narrative Photography. It could be something simple as a day in the life of a photographer or Christmas shopping or the homeless problem in Honolulu or the birth of a butterfly. The story (in 2-3 sentences) must be submitted with the photos. The challenge will be not to have 5 photos of an event but to tell a story within the event. For example, it’s easy to get 5 photos of a wedding but the challenge is to get 5 photos of the cake cutting ceremony with the smiles, laughter and messy faces.
