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 🙂

Murder and music 

https://nzhistory.govt.nz/culture/the-death-penalty/the-last-execution

Has anyone ever wondered what our magical little country might be like if capital punishment was still a thing?

I was reading a news article about the last hanging in Australia in 1967 .. and got to thinking about our own little country .. and ours was 1957 .. odd cause I’d always thought it was in the late 1960’s.. 

Either way. . It got me pondering upon who and by what means one might have decided these things back in the day. 

Who gets to decide it’s OK to take a life.. 

then I remembered our former prime minister     …. and wished it was the 1950’s again.

BBC News: Vaccine sceptic Robert F Kennedy Jr says Trump asked him to lead safety study

Vaccine sceptic Robert F Kennedy Jr says Trump asked him to lead safety study – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-38577861

This shoul be interesting indeed. Though personally I am neither pro nor ani vaccine .. I’ve had a few when I was younger but as an adult have chosen not to continue ..  

It’s well documented that’s America’s CDC, FDA and so on is rife with corrupted and placed business people who become or were politicians and that Big Business has and does dictate policy. Look at Monsanto as an example of how corruption gains you your own laws to protect you from being sued. ( Americans can thanks Obama for signing that stupidity into law ) ..

Though reading this article, it is worded carefully and appears to me that it’s done so asto not rock the boat … but make a clear statement that possibly Trump might be out to sort some of this sort. ..

It’s hard call as I’m not really invested in American politics .. or any politics for that matter.. but just as an outside observer .. I ponder upon the possibility that maybe .. just maybe .. trump might have some morals and that having and actual businessman who’s proven in business might be the right move for how a country should be run.. or by whom .   
Thoughts ?  I’d love to hear them .. leave a comment and let’s start a discussion. 

Enjoy

BBC News: Top model agencies agencies fined £1.5m for price-fixing

Top model agencies agencies fined £1.5m for price-fixing – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-38339367

Frankly all I could honetly say when I read this and its related articles about how much (or less) models were being paid these days I was all like:  haha haha haha yea. 

Well the industry has done it to its self.. hiking prices (like any business) to make more profit while paying their talent less and less. 

I’ve read some agency contracts (recently) and am horrified at the terms and conditions therein that work against the photographer but more so the talent. 

Even in the independent model pool (where I hire from) models are hiking their prices up .. and then moan when I  offer them a lower hourly rate and remind them that there’s a lot more models out there now looking for work and that does t just change what you can charge but also the level of professionalism that’s available. 

I’ve hired more talented professional models for less money than I’ve gotten with ones that demand a higher rate.  

Now I get the cost of living and all that.. but for the most part (I assume) these models (local talent) don’t declare to the tax department (all) their earnings .. so hey when your not having to pay 20% tax.. that makes a difference. 

 International models who travel around (I prefer to work with them) charge what seems to be fair rates and come with a wealth of experience to boot .. often I’m finding local less experienced talent are trying to charge the same or even more sometimes.. 

The core differences being I’d rather pay higher rates for professional international models that actually know what they are doing and turn up on time than I would to pay less and hire some local talent whom proves to be flakes .. can’t communicate or don’t turn up..

Now, to be fair, I have had the pleasure of working with some absolutely lovely people (talent) locally .. though mayhap not as experienced as some of the international models … certainly making up  for it by being super awesome to work with and amazing all round people in general. 

To those models and talent, I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart and look forward to working with you again. 
So yes there’s some ranting in there about the lack of common sense and politeness and professionalism but lol who cares. . This is my blog after all 🙂  
have a happy sunday 🙂 

BTW my websites getting updated.. shuffling images around , deleting some, adding new ..  and also added a “upcoming shoots” page for any models interested in any of ideas in development stuff..

BBC News: The Dutch prison crisis: A shortage of prisoners

The Dutch prison crisis: A shortage of prisoners – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-37904263

I like fried onions… and i like what the Dutch have been doing. 

As my country faces a shortage of prisons because our system sucks and our justice council is as corrupt as some of the people it puts away… 

Trump gets in.. Our prime minister is just  as retarded … 

I wonder what the future holds..  
Breakfast time.

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 🙂
