It was sort of a plum job to begin with. I was helping another Producer on a shoot in Tahiti. We spent a couple of days hanging out in Hawaii first while getting the local crew and equipment sorted out then a week shooting at a cute little enclave of grass huts called "Tiki Village" on the island of Moorea. The best part was after the "work" was over the owner of the village "hired me" to hang out for a few days and shoot pictures like this for his brochure. It was a barter deal where I got my own grass hut, use of a boat, scooter, my meals and full use of the resort for a mini vacation while I enjoyed the island and took pictures. I guess you just get lucky sometimes.
