I got up early this morning around 5:30 to catch a bus into San Jose to shoot the celebrity cast arriving at the airport. This was the first day that any of the celebs would be arriving. The hotel I'm staying at is located in Sarapiquis and sits on a rainforest. It is an absolutely beautiful setting albeit a rustic one. Walking the grounds and looking out into the rainforest across the infinity pool is an especially relaxing way to wake up.
The trip from my hotel to the airport was around two hours (getting to San Jose from Sarapiquis varies depending on traffic and weather conditions, more on that later). We stopped on the way and picked up two big security guys (one named "Junior" who looks nothing like his name!).
Traveling with me today was a still photographer who is capturing production stills for the show. He and I had a quick discussion about how to best capture the celebs making the trek from baggage claim to their awaiting cars. The plan was to first let security greet the celebs to let them know that I would be doing a short interview with them.
