Yes as you already know (if you read the previous blogs) i returned to Kauai for a week, while it was still fun this trip was more oriented towards shooting more images for my portfolio. I spent a lot of time driving around looking for places to shoot, made some connections that will hopefully prove to be advantageous, shot some photos for the resort we were staying at and got a free week there (that one is thanks to dad and his never ending and amazing networking skills). On top of that i had a blast in the process, got to hang out with many local people, hung out with my buddy (and tattoo artist guru) Thad Nakao and i went scuba diving for the 1st time.........i think i might have found another expensive hobby....hahahahaha. So basically it all means i went to bed very late and got up early for some morning light........the latter part of that sentence didnt happen all to ofen but when i did it was extremely difficult. My wife was unable to join me on this trip, this proved to be much more difficult to endure than i had anticipated, so this time i got to go with my mom and dad. Had a nice time shooting with my dad at a botanical garden close by, he made a joke that i would probably only move 5 feet and find something cool to shoot for the next half hour.......i proved him dead wrong when i moved 20 feet and spent the next 45 minutes there. All in all it was a very productive trip, and as always it was very difficult to leave. Now im back and looking the mountain of editing that i have to finish square in the face........BRING IT!!!!
