As a corporate event photographer, I get to visit some pretty places…it is true. Some days we ‘win the lottery’ and get to enjoy our leisure time and sometimes the most fun we have is finding the coolest place available to “virtual office”. Hey, it is peak time in the events industry and we are crazy busy, so this day is an office day!
Thanks to ‘the cloud’ and all the web app tools we implemented in the past 14 months, heading into the studio – as a completely functional remote “office” – requires three things: relative quiet (distant waterfalls are ok – helicopters not so much), WiFi, and a power outlet…and that is all. Let me repeat, “that is all” so you can let that sink in. No walls. Table optional. Screw the printer. Coffee is a bonus…as is a beach umbrella.
Today, my office is set up at “Humu’s” – an iconic Maui restaurant on property here at the Grand Wailea Resort. I am the only one here as they are only open for dinner (or for our incentive group breakfast), so I have the WHOLE place to myself…solid WiFi…everything I need is available, and the best part?
