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..

BBC News: YouTube channels need 10,000 views for adverts


YouTube channels need 10,000 views for adverts – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-39527043

For a while now i have been pondering upon what to do with my YouTube channel … As much as i do enjoy making videos, they are time consuming to do..and increasingly more annoying trying to adhere to YouTube ever changing requirements and rules for content. 

There have been many a YT personality express there irritation at what’s going on with YT and how YT appears to be consistently making it harder and harder to remain with them at any worthwhile level when it comes to revenue, which a lot of the bigger YT names rely on as their income while making YT content full time.

For me as a  simple casual content creator who doesn’t even have 100 subscribers ( lol ) income isn’t an issue as I have full time employment already and this forthr most part a fun hobby and a means to create a living memory for myself and whomever may be interested. 

I keep my content trimmed of any of my photo shoots and other events as YT would likely close my little channel down for some petty rule about showing to much skin lol.  … not me… my models… lol believe me no one wants to see my skin.. it just ain’t pretty hahaha 🙂

But anyway…. I’ve been holding back on making more content and looking around at what might be available … thus far only Vimeo looks viable .. 

Still through .. how far should I take it..After all its just a hobby .. 

Should I include behind the scenes photo shoot stuff ? Should I do more road trips and adventure ? … maybe I should drop that media format all together and just just platforms like Instagram, tumblr and twitter. .. none of which gain me any decent exposure anyway.. I.guess maybe other than Instagram .. who knows lol.

It’s all food for thought. . And I’ve thought about it  and now I’m eating the food lol 

Happy weekend everyone 🙂

The Death of Sensibility – US warship USS Sampson heads to New Zealand – NZHERALD

wpid-wp-1428884097253.jpeg

As the flags of freedom that once flew high in our hearts and pride of this fine country are being burned by the lunatic PM John Key, the US Warship USS Sampson makes its way to New Zealand for a unwanted visit.

Back in the 1980’s when (now departed) David Lange PM made a stand that did this country proud, and helped to build NZ to what it is, we may never have thought that decades later a corrupt US controlled puppet of a waste of life John Key would come to undo this … to make NZ a place where it’s own people can no longer afford to buy a simple house or live under such high costs.. where NZ has become a tax haven for his rich buddies, welcoming them all to come fuck this country and its people over, over and over again…… …….

This… dismantling of  our proud and globally respected stance again Nukes…. will surly be the death of us.

All that needs to happen now, is the US to fuck off another country like Russia enough that New Zealand will be seen as another of the US’s allies and we will (if not already) become a target ….

I was alive to see David Lange make us proud, now, alas, it seems in my life time I will witness John key shame us to the world.

 

Dear John Key – may you suffer in what remains of your political career, and as a man outside of that, may shame and disgust rain upon you and no helping hand ever be offered to you or your blood line.

A fine moment in history, bought to us by David Lange. RIP.
