Photographer / Nature Guide

My lifelong passion for photography began after my dad gave me a camera for my 18th birthday and I’ve been capturing life through a lens ever since. As a still photographer and documentarian, I’m passionate about going beyond the snapshot to creating a photograph that tells a good story and evokes emotion, whether it’s a portrait, landscape or detail. I love wildlife especially turtles and sharks. As a volunteer with Malama Na Honu ( Care for the Turtle ), a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect the Hawaiian green sea turtles through education, public awareness and conservation in the Spirit of Aloha, I get a chance to share my passion for wildlife. What I love most about leading tours is connecting with people from all parts of the world, and showing the most scenic spots on the island.


Nature and Bird Guide / Photographer

Aloha! I have always loved wildlife and birds. From the time I was a young girl I volunteered at a wildlife rehabilitation and education center. After earning a BS in Environmental Studies from East Stroudsburg University I began conducting education programs as a Naturalist, a Lead Conservation Educators and a Bird Banding and Education program at the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center. Leading tours allows me to share my knowledge and passion for Hawaii’s culture, history, wildlife and its unique and fascinating birds.

I am looking forward to meeting you and sharing our island.


Photographer/Nature Guide

Born in Canada I hiked and explored the beautiful Niagara Escarpment at an early age. With a love for art I’ve worked as a commercial photographer, graphic designer and videographer.
When I live in Kansas I was addicted to chasing those midwestern storms with my camera. As soon as the emergency sirens blared I was off to capture the tornado in all of its powerful glory. Later when we move to O’ahu I found that same passion for the big waves on the North Shore. It’s an incredible experience to feel the pounding surf and watch each magnificent wave turn into different shapes and colors. The first time I saw a surfer ride this energy force I knew surfing was for me. Each winter when the surf rolls in I’m there shooting. When I’m not shooting surf I love photographing nature especially wildlife. I’m a volunteer with Malama Na Honu ( Care for the Turtle ).

Come and shoot some surf with me and check out my photos below.

Jim ‘Kukui’


For the past decade, I have focused on creating photography that helps protect our environment and threatened cultural resources, working closely with oceanographers, water scientists, archaeologists, and architectural historians on hundreds of assignments. In 2016, I was awarded the Preservation Design Award from the California Preservation Foundation for my documentary project, “Bridging Los Angeles”, a film about a historic collection of monument bridges that span the Los Angeles River. A major exhibition and book is in the works for this year.
Most recently I’ve been shooting aerial footage with a variety of drones for a documentary traveling to Bulgaria, Rome and India.
Having taught photography and post-production at the Los Angeles Center of Photography, leading photography tours allows me to assist people in exploring O’ahu and experimenting with texture and color in our breathtaking landscapes. Seeing the imagery from our guest photographers inspires me every day.

Full Refunds

My wife and I booked a premium tour that was ultimately cancelled due to poor visibility just before we were to board. I just wanted to write that I appreciate their professionalism in doing so despite having to refund lots of $$$ . Thank you for not compromising our safety and experience.

Very Good

Can be Even Better

I think Blue Hawaii Tours are most famous in this region. They are good and professional but if they could offer few complementary services and discounts then tourists can be more comfortable and enjoy their time.
