The islands, deep in the Pacific, offer tropical landscapes, a reef accessible in minutes, world class surf and surf photography, turquoise lagoons brimming with marine life, and the warmest Tahitian hospitality.
From March 20-26 Tiny Atlas Quarterly and our trip partners Earth Missions x AllSwell Creative hosted an epic island-hopping adventure on Mo’orea and Tahiti in collaboration with Adobe Stock who partnered with Tiny Atlas and the photographers below to produce best-in-class photography.
After landing in Pape’ete, we traveled by ferry to the island of Mo'orea, staying right on the lagoon in over-water bungalows. Days in Mo’orea were measured in sunrises, mountain photo hikes, fresh cooked family meals, drone flights, boat rides, sting ray swims and lemon shark underwater encounters. Departing Mo’orea we travelled to Tahiti, staying just past “the end of the road” in Teahupo’o in local homes and bungalows accessible only by driving a pickup truck through a river or via a foot bridge and across a lush local neighborhood. In Teahupo’o our crew experienced this gorgeous land mostly from the water via daily boat adventures with our local guide Milton: capturing pro surfers on one of the most epic waves in the world, swimming in the rain in waterfall fed fresh rivers and sailing out to the remote atoll of Tetiaroa.

Throughout the trip our group of photographers/influencers explored Adobe Stock’s portfolio of tools (@adobestock, @adobecreativecloud) that helps emerging photographers connect their work with a larger audience. At Tiny Atlas we hear so often from photographers that they are shooting amazing work and trying to figure out how to translate that into client relationships, i.e. getting paid for their creativity. Becoming an Adobe Stock contributor represents one opportunity to do just that.
The Tiny Atlas Tahiti collection for Adobe Premium Stock features the incredible results from our trip.
