Photography has always been a part of Alex Wilson's life. His grandmother taught him to use a classic 35mm camera, and his father was a photographer for the U.S. Army in the '70s. After studying at the New York Institute of Photography, Wilson landed in Oahu, where he continues to seek out the best spots to capture the island's natural beauty. With this vast expertise, Wilson founded Oahu Photography Tours, which has consistently been ranked on TripAdvisor as one of the top tour companies in Hawaii. At Oahu Photography Tours, Wilson and his team of knowledgeable guides help everyone—from amateur shutterbugs to advanced photographers to tourists looking for some thrilling slideshow photos—snag the best images Oahu has to offer.
