We love Bonaire, and we love to share it with our friends around the world. One of the best ways to do that is through beautiful photographs that capture the essence of this unique island. To bring this magic to you, we often turn to professional photographers to create captivating images of this beautiful place. After all, they have the fancy cameras and the drones and all the things needed to put together breathtakingly inspirational photographs and video. It is their job. It is their specialty. It is what they live to do. And we love them for the magic that they produce, because then we can share that magic with you.
But there is another way to showcase the beauty that surrounds us here, and it doesn’t involve expensive equipment or special skills. Just the opposite, actually. We like to call it The Smart Perspective. Why? Because some of the most exciting photographs of Bonaire, her lands and her people, happen when an ordinary individual – a resident or a visitor – grabs their smartphone (get it? the smart perspective? yeah…we’re pretty proud of our cleverness…), iPad or point-and-shoot camera and captures a unique perspective. Nothing fancy, nothing strategically planned, nothing that’s been Photoshopped to within an inch of its life. Just a snapshot taken on the spur of the moment. An image captured that encapsulates the ordinary things that make Bonaire so special.
Sharing the beauty of Bonaire is something that we care deeply about, and we want to make the sharing an inclusive event. After all, why should we have all the fun? So today we invite you, our friends and followers, to join in the sharing. Do you have an intriguing photograph that captures the special beauty of Bonaire? Land, animals, sea, people…anything Bonaire-related. Would you like to share it with our social media and blog followers?
If you answered “YES” then here’s what to do. Just email your picture to us at marketing (at) bonhata (dot) org along with your name (so we can give you credit!) and a short description of the shot. If there’s an interesting story to go along with the photo, all the better! Include that, too. We love to share the story behind the photo. We’re hoping for submissions from everyone and everywhere. Whether you’re a professional photographer yourself or you only snap pics on holiday or anything in between. We want to share your perspective of Bonaire!
We will periodically share your submissions across our blog and social media channels – and give you credit of course. How’s that for collaborating to share the things that make our island so special?
