Good Saturday Morning

Well hello muffins… it’s Saturday the 23rd of almost that annoying day in December again …. meh.

The world has been somewhat interesting these last few months..

Bitcoin sores into orbit then comes crashing back down

Japan reports it’s lowest birthrate ever this year at just over 930,000 something

Some kpop singer takes his life and the world is shocked..

Social Media continues to turn once sensible people into walking morons

This generation are in for a shock when they realise they can’t live on the internet

And I’ve been abducted by two of the nicest Cosplayers ever..

Ok.. not really abducted.. but that did sound cool 😁 we have a shoot later today so am looking forward to that and testing my ability to remain sane and coherent in this weird heat.

Summer has come early.. no doubt going to be a hot one.

I’m off to L.A in Feb next year for a short but well needed holiday.. first holiday in about 3 years, so looking forward to that .. I’ve thought about this and .. excluding a week off over Xmas holidays (now) I’ve had 1 official day off this year.. only 5 days off in March 2016 and most of January 2015 off.

That’s not good.. not good at all when I look back and see the self inflicted damage that has done to my health and clarity of mind.

Speaking of clarity…

Breakfast time then shoot prep.

Have a safe and happy holidays everyone. 😁

BBC News: The compelling case for working a lot less

The compelling case for working a lot less – http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20171204-the-compelling-case-for-working-a-lot-less

Oh …. I’m all for working less, living more and possibly consuming a lot more ice cream …

Not sure if the ice cream thing is actually such a good idea 😁

It costs How Much???? In L.A …. ???

Yeeeeks!

I’ve been slowly planning my trip to L.A for next year.. a bit of a holiday and a bit of work also..

Doing the usual.. looking at what’s on.. travel .. accommodation.. places to go to and things to see and do, and I’ve come to this conclusion about it all….

Holy hell .. L.A is ridiculously expensive.

How do people ever survive there ?

For the sake of context .. as of this blog post .. currency conversion is about NZD$1.68 to USD$1.00 .. yea.. that’s a big ouch. .. for me to buy say USD$1000.00 would cost me near on NZD$1500-1600 .. and that’s probably not including whatever fees the banks would want to charge…

So far, with what I’ve seen, the cheapest part of the trip would be the airline tickets .. then rental car …

Things like hotels or AirBnB is hellishly over priced. I know that food is ok as you don’t have to eat like a rock star… but coffee.. omg I’ve seen some prices like UDS$5 for a coffee.. and I know they don’t do good coffee there… we are so luckily here in NZ.

However… work wise.. I’m trying to plan a few photo shoots … and that’s an eye opener in its self..

Apparently L.A is strongly union controlled so contents and permits are generally required .. makes sense I guess… where as back home you can generally shoot .. of course the fact that my shooting genre includes nudity of the human form.. that makes it more complicated again.

I’ve been advised that leaving the L.A city limits is advisable .. but L.A is a very big place and traffic would play a part in substantial delays no doubt.

As yet I’ve not looked into studio hire rates.. mostly cause I don’t like shooting indoors anyway..

I’m going to research San Francisco also.. see if that city has similar issues or not. .. or maybe I just see if I can get a AirBnB a bit away from the city.. maybe that will be more affordable.. which kinda sucks cause the few models I really want to shoot with are in L.A .

If anyone has any advise or knows of reasonable accommodation and places I could shoot art-nudes .. then I’d love to hear from you 😁

Anyways .. enough of the ranting .. I need to get on the road again…

Please show my Instagram and website and YT some love..
