Today marked the last day of shooting talent for our project with Travaasa Hana, a day of photographing various cultural activities the resort offers, capped off with shooting a traditional Hawaiian Luau – a very fitting way to end the talent portion of this shoot.
Four days of talent finished, Eleven days in Hawaii – today was interesting no matter how you define it. Whether it was the willingness of the photo crew to accept the dangers of underwater surf photography off the coast of Maui, or the constant cloudiness and rain showers we had to compete with, there was never a dull moment.
After seven days on the island so far, two days of tech-scouting, and one day of shooting without talent, today finally arrived. Our shoot today marks the first of five days with models, five days of making awesome photos with people for Travaasa Hana. Mother nature cooperated, our models were talented and charismatic, and the entire crew was working like a well-oiled machine. We couldn’t asked for a better shoot day.
Today marks the first official shoot day for our project with Travaasa Hana. As usual, the day started early – before sunrise, for a trek to Fagan’s cross, the giant stone cross overlooking the town of Hana, Hawaii. The sunrise up here was incredible, making for great photos, the first of many in an awesome day of photography.
Our second day of tech scouting started early, before dawn. The crew met up and hiked out in the dark to the red sand cove for a sunrise shot. Although it was super early, it was a great way to start the day.
