Aloha mai,

At Waikiki Portraits, we provide professional photography services for Honolulu, Oahu island and throughout Hawai`i.

My motto is excellence in photography.

As an artist, I bring a creative and interesting observation to my photography. My experience and income through photography also helps my art career.

This website has our basic info at a glance and some portfolio samples. I believe my creativity, technical achievement and professionalism will pass your scrutiny.

This website is a simple one-page brochure-style. A new site is under construction.

I've been an avid photographer, capturing precious moments for family, friends and clients since buying my first Pentax SLR film camera as a student. I studied film and photography in Australia. I was offered a place at the prestigious School of Art and Design at RMIT Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, in Preston, Victoria.

My standards of excellence are attributed to my teachers, my peers and the awesome wealth of artists and photographers before me. I've travelled to 40 countries soaking up world cultures and museum art.

I have been in business for many years in Hawai`i and maintain a first-rate reputation.

Feel free to call me 808-389-5789 to discuss your photo assignment and how we can make your album memories of it extraordinary and artistic.

Michael Daly is a serious Event Photographer.
Having years of experience behind him Michael stays cool. He sees what wants to be preserved and will capture it for you.

Michael has what I call the "Human touch.
He brings with him a genuine interest in the success of your event. His enthusiasm for the occasion puts people at ease and has them living in the moment.
I commissioned Michael to serve as official photographer on my friends' wedding day. With two locations, many guests and much to pay attention to. He got it all.
Guests loved Michael and invited him into their moment.The work just kept getting better.

His outdoor shots as well as those taken during the indoor reception are beautiful and captivating by any standard.

Michael was Great at our Family Reunion Barbecue Event. It was so fun to see all the candid photos online. And easy to download and print. The final group photo was amazing! Even with the awesome sunset in the back, the lighting was perfect. Highly recommended.
