Island Air Explorers - Kolohe Korner

When Aloha Airlines ceased operations last April one of the many losses was their Explorers Youth Program. This program brings high school age students behind the scenes at an airline to be exposed to a variety of areas in aviation. Island Air stepped up to the plate and took over the Explorers Program.

Over the past 10 weeks Island Air employees (among others) volunteered their own time to show these kids all kinds of things that go on in an airline operation. Some example topics: flight attendants, pilots, dispatch, operations, maintenance, TSA, ATC, airport crash and rescue, and more... Sounds awesome huh? You can read the official description of the program here.

Last night was the graduation ceremony for the first class of Island Air Explorers, CONGRATULATIONS to all involved... This group ROCKED the Kolohe Korner!

Don't worry, this first pic is Island Air volunteers, not high school students...

One of the counselors, Lance (he's a Captain), had eye surgery on a Monday and was at Explorers on that Wednesday, eye patch and all. Needless to say the kids got a kick out of that one.

A HUGE mahalo goes out to everyone involved in this program. In my opinion it was a 110% success! If you are involved in the Explorers Program click here.

Thank you for taking and sharing the Explorers photos! I've have looked at all of the photos on your website and you are obviously a wonderful photographer (!!!)! If you send me some business cards, I will gladly hand them out for weddings, birthdays, special occasions, family photos, etc... You name it! In fact, my father will be turning 80 in August and we may have a celebration in which I'd love to have you be our photographer, and when Cheyne's dad returns home at the end of the year, can we schedule a family photo shoot with you?


Satisfaction Guaranteed

My main goal is for you to be happy with your photographs. I will not accept payment for pictures you don't like. The way I ensure this is by not taking any money until you have photos you like in your hands.

If you do not like the photos from your shoot we will have two options. The first option is a re-shoot. This will require you and I to mutually agree on a re-shoot. The second option is for you to not take delivery of any images and therefore not pay me. Since I will not have taken payment yet you will not have to seek a refund.

I believe this policy gives you as the customer a layer of protection and assurance that you will not get the short end of the stick if you decide to take photographs with me. It is intended to give you peace of mind. I want the process to be as enjoyable and stress free as possible for you.

I also have a Referral Program:

For every four clients you refer that do a session with me you will receive a coupon good for a FREE one hour session including 10 edited images on CD!
