Recently I had the pleasure of spending my honeymoon in Hawaii on the big island. 11 days of pure bliss. After visiting Jurassic Park and quelling the dinosaur rebellion, I made sure to take lots of neat photos of our adventures around the island. We went from the Kona side, to Hilo, then back to Kona. Lots of coffee tours, beach trips, hiking, swimming with dolphins, and of course drone flying!
Below are some photos I snapped around the island.
Ok ok ok... How do I get paid??
The simple answer... Don't ever let an opportunity slip through your fingers, and always be prepared. For example: I made sure to bring my drone, DJI Inspire1 on our trip. I mean, who wouldn't want incredible aerial shots of a breath taking island? While we were in Hilo staying at this bed and breakfast with a waterfall literally in their backyard I took the opportunity to get some unique shots of the falls. While I was flying around, the owner caught site of what I was doing. I walked over and showed him some of the shots I was getting. He ended up being blown away by the footage, we struck up a conversation that led to me making the video below!
Always be on the lookout for ways you can show people what they need/want before they know they need/want it. You can't always wait for opportunity to know, sometimes you have to bull rush the door.
Ever had an experience where you put in some effort and were rewarded by it?
