At And You Creations we love our photographers, guides, crew and drivers.  Without them we’d have to change our name to “Only You Creations“, because they are the integral pieces of the puzzle that make this whole thing work.

So, we’re really happy to announce the inaugural season and episode of our new video series: Clip of the Week (COTW).

What is the Photographer Clip of the Week?

Each week one of our amazing photographers is going to share some video footage they’ve recently taken.  But unlike the clips we normally post on Facebook, Instagram or Youtube, these are coming straight from them to you.

We’ve told them to share whatever clip resonates with them.  The only limitation is that it should be family friendly.  Other than that, sky’s the limit!

We know our photographers have incredible creativity and artistic sensibilities.  So we are thrilled they can have this opportunity to share it with all of you.

One week you might see some dolphins in the water.  The next week you might see something on the boat … or a guest … or an interesting cloud formation.  It can be anything, as long as it really speaks to the photographer and they feel compelled to share it with all of you.

We can’t wait to see what they come up with!

About Melissa and her COTW

This week we have our lead photographer, Melissa, at the wheel.  Melissa is a great photographer, free diver, cross fit enthusiast, speaks fluent Spanish and is the master of the “dad joke”.  Check out some of these amazing shots (sneakily grabbed from her Instagram channel):

This week Melissa shares two clips of something that doesn’t happen very often.  I won’t spoil it for you, but you’ll definitely want to check it out and see what she saw in the waters off the west coast of Oahu!

Without further delay, here is our first Clip of the Week (COTW)!

Now, we know the sound quality is a little off.  We’re still working out the kinks in our system.  But each week we’re going to keep raising the bar and improving our process.  You will definitely want to subscribe to our Youtube Channel so you can know as soon as the next clip comes out.

And while you’re at it, go ahead and check out our Dolphins and You Instagram feed and Facebook page, where we post clips and photos every single day!
