I’ve been unbelievably lucky to travel and work in some of the most spectacular locations, (Positano Italy, Pelican Hill in CA, Nevis in the West Indies…etc) but might just have a new favorite! I recently returned from a fabulous job at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka’upulehu. On the island of Kona, the big island in Hawaii, this spot was GORGEOUS!
The resort looked like a postcard, the service was spectacular and there was wildlife everywhere! One of the most incredible things I saw was a Moray eel in a small tidal pool:
Most of the corporate events I was photographing were outside. There were perfect temperatures and backdrops..easy to see why many call this paradise!
Easily the most inspirational highlight of this event was photographing a lecture by former NASA astronaut and former Google employee, Dr. Ed Lu. No big deal, he just started the B612 Foundation to save the world… Yep, he’s (and some friends) are building an infrared telescope to discover and track hundreds of thousands of asteroids, AND are privately fundraising to get it funded on their own! Fortunately, to lighten the mood after that incredibly powerful lecture came entertainment by the very talented Grammy nominated pianist and singer Michael Feinstein:
I feel truly lucky that corporate event photography as brought me to such incredible locations and this Four Seasons Resort Hualalai in Hawaii goes to the top of the list ! One more important note to those that might be headed here to golf.. While the views are second to none, bring extra balls, because once they hit the lava rock, they are gone for good!
