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…

Mini road trip to Coromandel Town April 2016

So HI there 🙂

 

here’s a little not very good mini road trip video thing of my trip to Coromandel Town… mostly it was to get me to a photo shoot, which it did, 

but also it was, just because, you know, making poorly edited and thought out videos is fun!! 🙂 LOL

 

Yerrrrr   anyways… watch watch 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Epic RoadTrip – North Island, NZ, March 2016

20150208 042A1679122

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OMG…. Guess what I did……  yeah…

another Epic Road Trip…. this time, around the North Island of NZ.

 

You can see my Epic Road Trip around the South Island 2015 here: 

 

Now, here’s a bunch of videos for your entertainment, or my amusement…

 

Things to note…

 

Please, as usual, excuse the terrible editing 😛

 

I drove around the North Island in March of 2016, starting in Auckland,

and heading EAST –  then following the East Coast of the North Island,

down into Wellington, and then UP the West coast back to Auckland, with

places in between and stops and adventures of which you can see samplings of

some here in these awesome videos 😛

 

I’ve skipped bits that you’ve all seen over and over again, 

like me leaving Auckland, me heading back into Auckland, Me and other stuff.

 

These videos are just snippets of my trips, and I recommend to you all, to get off your butts 

and go outside and live life a little 🙂 ….. 🙂

 

Or, stay at home and watch my videos and please, LIKE and Subscribe…. I love you long time 🙂

 

hehehe umm

 

So here’s the thing…. below you will find links to the videos on youtube, in order.

I also post to VIMEO, because youtube is turning to shyte.. and I need a backup.

So if you’re a VIMEO member, please go watch them there also, if you like and feel free to donate a little

to help me make more videos 🙂 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Live your life well.

Do not live someone else’s.

2015-04 – Beardy Adventure – Bayswater Auckland New Zealand

 

20150208 042A1679122

 

 

 

Well hello my little nose muffins…. it’s been a while since I’ve been out and about…. the good news is, my 4×4 is all fixed and happy, I’ve mostly paid off all the repairs and stuff, so i went on a little ‘test adventure’ drive to see how things worked, and also, to edit again as I think I’ve forgotten most things already.. hahaha oh well 🙂

I filmed this completely on a GoPro4Silver… what do you think?

So tell me, what’s your fav editing software ??
I used to use Sony Vegas, when I was on windows, but since moving to the Mac I now use Adobes PremPro… I like FInalCut Pro too.. but umm.. choices choices, but in all honestly, I really really miss Vegas, it is awesome… wish they would port it to the Mac.. *sighs*

 

So here’s little trip from a week or so ago 😛

PS. I’m going to be posting this on both youtube and vimeo from now on, as youtube is becoming painful to use, and vimeo is more a professional outlet where I can control much more of what’s going on. Hope you support me in both 🙂

Adventure 2014-2015 – Epic RoadTrip – South Island – NZ – SUMMARY

 

2015 02 12 18 28 54

 

 

  

 

 Hello my beautiful subscribers, followers, stalkers, weirdos, humans and aliens 🙂
 
So, now that my big adventure road trip around the South Island of New Zealand is well and truly done and dusted, I thought I’d throw this post up with all the videos in cronological order, just to make it easier for those of you who are interested, and to annoy those of you who aren’t.
 
I’ve started planning my next big adventure, which is a trip to Canada & USA at the end of this year, so if any of you have suggestions for where
I should visit in Canada and USA, drop me a line, though for the USA i’m strictly sticking to the west coast up to Canada, and then the east coast down from NY to PA and stuff, then back to the west coast and Hawaii and then home.
 
Anyway, here’s the videos… 
 
These are from my VIMEO Account, which is where I will be posting new videos to first.. as youtube is becoming really stupid.
 
If you are a Vimeo member, or, you enjoy my vldeos, please feel free to use the TipJar to help out, it would be greatly appreciated.
 
Please, subscribe to my youtube channel, and my vimeo also, and to my blog here, there’s no spam, no advertising, but it does show your support and gives me  motivation to make more videos and blogs and whatever else i do.
