What is Hbgoodie?

Hbgoodie is a name I chose a long time ago when I first started Instagram. The thing is, it stuck! “H” is for Heather and “B” is for Bryant, and Goodie is just a fun nickname for our last name: Goodman. This is our little space on the internet to spread some happiness, share our life, and do some good along the way. We love to create content and promote the stuff that really matters.

What camera/lens do you use + recommend?

We have a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and mostly use our Canon 24-70mm 2.8 ii lens. We also use SPL Water Housing and a Sigma 15mm 2.8 for our underwater shots. You can see a complete list of our equipment + what we recommend by going here!

We also edit with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. You can buy our presets here and learn how to edit in our self-paced online editing course here.

How long have you been doing photography?

Heather has been taking photos and getting paid for it since she was 14! After being a wedding photographer for several years, she decided she wanted to follow her passion and focus on promoting the good in the world. 

When did you get married?

June 2015!

Can we meet up while I’m visiting Hawaii?

As much as I’d love to meet everyone who’s visiting, remember that I’m not on vacation and have work and a life to live! Who knows though, maybe we’ll run into each other at the beach! 🙂

Where is [location that I saw on Instagram]?

Sometimes we share exact locations and sometimes we don’t. If you don’t see the location attached to a photo it’s probably because we don’t feel comfortable sharing it. Sometimes it’s not our location to share: we try to respect the locals of the places we visit and often they do not want it publicly shared. Sometimes we worry that a place may lose its magic if it becomes overrun by tourists. We would rather those who truly respect it would take the time to discover and explore on their own!
