Kauai Landscape and Adventure Photography 

5 days, January 12-16, 2015 

Join AMS and photographer Tom Bol on Kauai, the "Garden Isle" of the Hawaiian Islands this January, for our second annual Kauai Photo Workshop.  Kauai is Paradise Found; the raw beauty and pristine beaches, steep volcanic sea cliffs covered in lush vegetation and towering waterfalls make the back drop for an incredible visit and for your photos.  The AMS photo workshop takes place on the north shore of Kauai in winter, and it is a sight to behold. Beautiful sunsets, lush taro fields, pumping waves, and heavenly beaches all in a spectacular setting. Elder Hawaiian fishermen mingle with movie stars and surfing legends.
