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: 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: Philippine President Duterte curses Obama over human rights

Philippine President Duterte curses Obama over human rights – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-37274594

Well.. the comment about Obama made me laugh.. have to hand it to Duterte, he’s coming across as a man not to be manipulated by the USA and although I don’t agree with outright killing of people … He has a point.. and it’s working. .. so if he’s man enough and passionate enough to stand up to these parasites that are feeding the addiction of others…. well then. . good on him for doing so. . And shame on the UN for being such a pack of useless twats as are they always.Β 

Time to sit back and watch the fun…

That and North Korea firing more missiles into Japanese waters… This is going to be an entertaining year :p

BBC News – China’s Science Revolution

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/resources/idt-0192822d-14f1-432b-bd25-92eab6466362

Ooohhhh giving other countries a run for their money when it comes to science. … have to admit that I like some of what I read here… If China can push ahead with mass distribution of things like advanced medical etc thrn I say go for it.  The US needs a challenge as it oft sits there wrapped in its own ego.

BBC News: Germany replaces BND spy chief Schindler

Germany replaces BND spy chief Schindler – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-36148107

Maybe there’s a stirring with countries … realizing what sort of shit thr US government has been up to for so many years. 

New Zealand has its own spy base too.. and we’ve spied for the US as they have for us against our own respective people.   It’s been going on since forever.. and likely will continue to also.. just more covertly.

Any change is good no matter how small or large.. and a lot of respect to those who have the balls to stand up against the corrupt government systems.

Thoughts ?
