Dream Job

Best job application ever. Netflix has a job opening for a “Grammaster” that will “travel to several European locations where they will take photographs of iconic film and TV locations for Netflix” which I ‘applied’ for by hashtagging three of my Instagram photos. When people ask me what my dream job would be or what would I do if I won the powerball… that description is basically my answer: Travel around the world and photograph everything.

Simple, concise description of what they are looking for: “TV & movie fans with a talent for taking pictures. Choose photos that show off your interests or passions.” I looked through all of my photos I haven’t gotten around to posting yet and starting sorted through the best ones that show my interests which have also been used as on set locations for movies. Check out these photos on my Instagram account.

The first picture is one of my favorite pictures I’ve probably ever taken, even more so because not many people will ever see this view. I’ll have a more detailed description of this in a ~future post~. This is a difficult hike that not many people in Hawaii can or would want to climb. The views are beyond gorgeous and the photos don’t even come close to showing the colors, details, or magnitude of the beauty the crater holds. This area was also used to film Jurrassic Park. The entire hike my brother kept saying “I feel like I’ve seen this place before” and “I keep thinking a triceratops or a velociraptor is going to come out of the bushes.”

The middle is of a lookout point near Honolulu. Very simple. Beautiful. Breathtaking. On set location of Pirates of the Caribbean 4. Captain Jack Sparrow walked these rocks just as I did.

The last photo is of a ti plant found in the Waimea Valley (as well as most of Oahu). This valley has also been the set for many movies and shows such as Lost, Hawaii 5-0, Six Million Dollar Man, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and many more. This time it was me saying “I feel like I’ve seen this place before,” looking around at all of the plants and foliage made me think I was in the Hunger Games.

Although it’s a slim chance that I will get selected to be a Grammaster, you can’t get selected if you never try! Most of the time I feel like I have to be so much of a perfectionist, that I can never fully complete something because ‘it could be better’. One of my new goals is that I’m trying to go out and do things, even though I know it won’t be perfect or I may not be selected. It comes easy to some people, but it’s extremely difficult for me to go through with something that isn’t 1000% perfect. The more I grow, the more I realize that it’s okay. It’s okay not to be perfect. It’s okay just to be.
