Location Scout

Traverse by car, ATV, and catamaran, capturing every step of your journey.

The Location Scout is a seven-day, all-access pass to Kauai’s legendary natural beauty. Rather than being tied down to a desk, the entire island will become your studio, from Waimea Canyon to the Napali Coast. Whether you’re shooting video, stills, or just doing it for the ‘gram, this residency will help you take your work to new heights.

Please note: Applications for 2018 are now closed.

Your Workspace

You can’t find the perfect shot sitting still, so this residency includes access to a catamaran, an ATV, and (of course) a car. Take them wherever you please to capture Kauai through a different lens.

What You'll Do

Explore Kipu Ranch by ATV

Explore this 3,000-acre property, cruising through rolling pastures, lush forests, and groves of banyan trees. And since your expert local guide will shed light on the incredible local flora and fauna, your day will include more than just adventure.

You might recognize parts of the ranch from Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark, which was filmed on the property.

Stay hydrated with shave ice

Running around all day is a great excuse to try this local classic, perfect for keeping you cool on-the-go. Don’t miss the food truck spot, where you’ll find countless varieties, all made with fresh island fruits. Some trucks avoid artificial dyes or flavors, so maybe you can even call it healthy.

Recharge with local dragon fruit

Production can take it out of you, but fortunately pitaya is a natural energy booster. Each residency comes with a per diem for food and drinks, so you can swing by Little Fish Coffee for all the breakfast bowls, fresh fruits, and organic coffee you desire.

Embark on a dream shoot

Get inspired by seventeen miles of beautiful sea cliffs, waterfalls, and valleys along the Napali Coast. You’ll take an exclusive catamaran tour of the Pacific stretch, where you’ll spend the day learning Hawaiian history with a beautiful view.

The Hawaiian word "Napali" translates to "many cliffs."
