Flight Out and Day 1 of Japan!!!

What’s up guys! This is officially the start of the Japan trip the girlfriend and I took in the beginning of October. In this video I showed our flight from Honolulu to Japan and what we ended up doing on our first official day there. I can’t tell you how much this video got me in my feels about Japan while I was creating it! Japan is just an amazing place! If you haven’t visited there yet, IT’S A MUST, or if you have already been there, then you already know why I’m in my feels lol.

Check out what we did and I can promise you that more videos from the trip are in the works and coming soon!  You can also peep the photos and read about the other things we did while in Japan.  There might not be too much photos this time, but that’s because I took a majority of video clips to sharpen my video skills even further.

I’ll also be moving travel content from the journal into it’s own section which will be labeled, “Travel”.  So look out for that!

Japan Day 11 (Our Last Official Day In Japan)

sphoto, sphotohi, sphotohawaii, japan, templeThis was our LAST DAY in Japan and it was a bittersweet feeling.  Mostly on the sad side because when you’re having a blast on a vacation, you want it to last as long as possible without it having to end.  But all good things must come to an end and this day was it.  We spent our last full day exploring and eating breakfast at Tsukiji Market, then went to check out the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa.  The rest of the day/night was last minute shopping and eating whatever food we could that we can’t experience back at home.  Japan was one the most awesome countries we ever visited in my opinion and we are definitely going back again one day.  Continue reading here or click on the photo above to see how our trip ended.

Japan Day 7

sphoto, sphotohi, sphotohawaii, japan, tokyo, odaiba, palette town, digital art museum

Today was a pretty fun day checking out the digital museum in Odaiba, although we had to check out of our rad hotel, Shinjuku Granbell Hotel, but after making it to Shibuya and checking into our hotel (although smaller than our recent hotel), there are hella places close by that make’s up for it lol. I would say it’s like a Waikiki of Japan but way bigger! We have a lot more shopping to do and a few more shooting to do as well, but it looks like the trip is coming to the dreadful end no one ever want’s to see (when they’re on a trip). Can’t wait to make these last few days count! I’ll get back to you guys tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!

Japan Day 5

Japan Day 2

We spent a day (ok maybe a hand full of hours) in Kyoto today at Fushi Inari Taisha & Kinkakuji Temple and the rest of our day traveling via trains.  It was a long day that would make your feet hurt (literally) because of all the walking we did but that’s what traveling is all about right?  Exploring and seeing things/places you never see/experienced before and making the best of everything.  It was mainly sight seeing and “touristy” stuff, but it’s our first time here in Japan.  Why wouldn’t we do that?  You have to experience everything at least once while you got the chance to right?

Beach Day!!!!

Had a beach day with the girlfriend and a few of the homies this past weekend.  Brought them back to the same beach @shaz_v and I did the last video together.  Last time the 2 of us went, we weren’t prepared because all I had in mind was to shoot a video at the time and boy did I regret it!  It was so hot that day that all I could think about was swimming, but all I brought were the clothes I was wearing and my camera.  This time we planned it out and brought a tent, drinks, food, and everything else anyone would bring to the beach to have a good time!  This took place on the North Shore of Oahu.  To be honest with you, I have no idea what the name of this beach is, but it isn’t as busy as most beaches here on the island and it stretched pretty far, so there literally was all the space in the world at this spot.  No more searching almost half the beach for a spot to kick it lol.  We stayed all the way til sunset, and I gotta say, this day was a good day.

Spontaneous Beach Day With The Girlfriend

For those who don’t already know, yes this is my gorgeous girlfriend, Shaz lol.  This was a spontaneous beach day, on a Sunday afternoon.  It was so hot that day and we were both off (we rarely get the same days off), so it was her idea to head to the beach and I figured might as well make use of the day and shoot a video and photos too to see where I’m stand ever since I jumped into the video side of things!  We went down to some beach  at the North Shore.  I don’t know the name of it but it was one of those beaches that was literally on the side of the highway (if you ever been down that side, and I know many locals have, but if you’re not from here, there are many beaches you can visit down at the north shore).  Before that we took a stroll through Haleiwa (a MUST SEE place if you’re ever visiting Oahu) to play tourist a bit and grab some food for the beach.  Let me tell you though, because this was a spontaneous trip, we were definitely NOT prepared! lol.  We arrived there around 430ish and the sun hadn’t gone down enough to where the beach is bearable, so we regretted not bringing enough drinks and a tent lol.  So we set up our beach blanket on the sand and just endured the sun and enjoyed our Sunday.  I have to admit though, it was relaxing minus the hot sun and sweating so much (because I didn’t bring swim shorts on the count that I wasn’t planning to swim but boy did I regret that), plus I shot whatever I could before I was over everything because of the heat lol.  Anyways, if you wanna see the rest of the photos and the video that was taken that day, click on the photo above!

Forest/Nature Photo Shoot With Caitlin

I wanted to change up the scenery from what the team and I normally do.  What I had in mind originally was to do something street (which I love shooting) but I had a feeling the team wanted to shoot something different lol.  I had no story line for the shoot, no theme because I couldn’t think of anything.  My mind drew blank so it was just a “normal” shoot.  During the shoot though, little bits and pieces of ideas came to mind of how some parts of the video should go so it wasn’t totally “theme-less” lol.  It turned out to being a (if I HAD to name it) nature-ish vibe…..continue reading
