Meet Jason Hubert, the guy who has been shooting much of the awesome drone videos of St. John you’ve been seeing.
If you’re a longtime OSJ reader, you actually met Jason about six years ago, when he moved to St. John from Baltimore for a long break before law school.
Since then, Jason returned to DC to get his law degree and is now back on St. John preparing to take the Virgin Islands Bar this summer.
He has also mastered the art of the drone, and is shooting charter boats, villas, weddings and anything else you can think of. Click here if you have a project for him.
Shooting drone video is not easy. “I waited until I had about 100 hours of flight time before I took it over the water,” Jason says, “and I still get nervous every time.”
Check out the amazing sample of Jason’s St. John drone videos, below…
Here’s a fun British tourism video from 1937 for the Virgin Islands, featuring St. Thomas.
Bluebird’s Castle is “the principle hotel, as modern as the other fellow’s motor car and run by the government.”
“In this Earthly paradise, one of the greatest joys is bathing. In winter as well as summer – and that’s the long and the short of it.”
OSJ reader and frequent St. John visitor Maddie Mele, from Philadelphia, got a mermaid tail for Christmas and brought it with her on her recent St. John visit.
“She put it on all the way to the right at Trunk Bay and then swam to the underwater trail and freaked people out,” says Maddie’s Mom, Claire. “It was a lot of fun. Kids and adults were taking pictures.”
