Lahainaluna High School | Hana Hou! Magazine

Scenes from Lahainaluna High School in Maui, the oldest school west of the Rockies, estimated 1831. Check out the August/September issue of Hana Hou! the Hawaiian Airlines Magazine to see the full story.

Hale Pa'i, the old printing house, now a public museum.

Boarder students earn their keep by doing yard work and various chores around the campus every morning and afternoon, for the past 175 years.

This is such a beautiful collection of photography! I'm getting into photography and was wondering if you could help me out with angles and I'd like to know what type of camera you use to shoot this with and what photoshop as well. I absolutely love your work and is a student admirer. Please contact me back, I'd love to get some tips!:)
Lahainaluna Student, Samantha.

Hi Elyse,

It's been long overdue but I'd like to thank you again for allowing me to use some of your pictures to build my mapping project.
