oahu portrait photographers - bob the camera man

Rik - January 12, 2014
I recently called Bob the Cameraman with a challenging request. Not only was it going to be a physical challenge, it was also last minute. My girlfriend and I had a vacation planned in Honolulu and about a week before we left I decided that the time was right to pop the question. I knew the location had to be on the rim of Koko Crater I just had to find a camera man willing to make that trek.

Bob was beyond accommodating. He was both willing and excited for the opportunity. He came up with great ideas to help make the moment more special. He suggested that we hike before sunrise so we could be on the rim of the crater to watch it rise over the ocean. He did research on his own time to find the times and position of the sunrise in order to give us the ultimate experience which was unexpected and very thoughtful.

Bob hiked the Koko trailhead with all of his gear in the moonlight before we did and was waiting at the top of the climb to take pictures of our last steps. My girlfriend was obviously unaware that this was anything other than an ordinary hike so Bob followed behind us snapping candid shots until we got to the spot where I popped the question. Once the cat was out of the bag and she said YES, Bob started to work his magic.

Bob had great ideas for posing and chose great spots to really capture the magic of the scenery and the moment. We can not express how much fun we had working with him. His laid back attitude and great sense of humor made the experience that much sweeter. Also, his enthusiasm for his work is unparalleled.

We would definitely recommend Bob to anyone looking for beautiful, unique shots and a fun photography experience. We look forward to working with him again!!
