  IT HAS BEEN A TRADITION HER FOR THE LAST EIGHT YEARS FOR US TO HEAD OFF ON A CRUISE ON MY BIRTHDAY.  THIS YEAR IT WILL BE NO DIFFERENT.  WITH A SIXTEEN DAY CRUISE SCHEDULED FOR SEPTEMBER, WE WANTED TO SCHEDULE SOMETHING SHORT AND VERY AFFORDABLE FOR JANUARY.  SO LET'S HEAD OFF TO CATALINA AND ENSENADA ONBOARD THE INSPIRATION.

HAVE YOU SEEN MY MUSIC VIDEO "THE WAY TO SPEND THE DAY?"  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT.  IT WAS MADE ON THIS SAME CRUISE, ON THIS SAME SHIP, SEVERAL YEARS AGO.  YOU CAN SEE THE INSPIRATION ANCHORED IN THE BACKGROUND.

THIS PARTICULAR CRUISE IS VERY SPECIAL TO ALL OF US.  WE'VE DONE IT A NUMBER OF TIMES.  IT IS ALSO ONE THAT WE ARE VERY EXPERIENCED AT!  WE HAE THE LOCATIONS AND THE ROUTINE DOWN PAT.

WE SAIL TO TWO PORTS, CATALINA AND ENSENADA.  ON CATALINA, I RENT A SIX PERSON GOLF CART AND SHUTTLE THE PHOTOGRAPHERS AND MODELS TO SOME GREAT SHOOTING LOCATIONS ON THE ISLAND.  I LIVED ON A BOAT IN LONG BEACH FOR ABOUT FIFTEEN YEARS.  I HAVE BEEN TO CATALINA HUNDREDS OF TIMES.  I CAN TAKE YOU TO SOME PRETTY KEWL PLACES.

IN ENSENADA, I RENT A VAN WHERE i WILL TAKE YOU TO AMAZING BEACH ABOUT THIRTY MILES FROM TOWN.  ON ONE SIDE THERE IS A BEACH, THE OTHER SIDE DUNES ALL IN A FEDERAL RESERVE.  CLOSE BY THE BEACH IS A PLACE WHERE WE CAN GET HORSES AND SHOOT THE MODELS ON HORSES EITHER ON TRAILS OR ON A NEARBY BEACH.  AFTER THE BEACH, WE CAN DRIVE TO EL BUFADORA, BOTH TO SHOOT AND JUST ENJOY THE BIZARRE.

WE SQUEEZE SOME GREAT SHOOTING INTO A FOUR DAY CRUISE.

DEPENDING ON THE NUMBER OF PHOTOGRAPHERS, I PLAN TO BRING ONE TO THREE MODELS ON THIS CRUISE.  I HAVE STRUCTURED THIS CRUISE TO BE EXTREMELY LOW COST.  IN ALL PAST YARS, I HAVE TAKEN A SUITE, WHICH IS GREAT FOR SHOOTING, BUT MAKES THE CRUISE EXPENSIVE.  THIS TIME, I HAVE STARTED WITH AN EMPRESS DECK OUTSIDE CABIN.  I WILL SCALE THE CABIN TO THE NUMER OF PHOTOGRAPHERS.  MY GOAL THOUGH IS TO MAKE THIS CRUISE EXTREMELY AFFORDABLE.

IN PAST YEARS, WE HAVE CHARGED $750 OR MORE FOR TUITION, PLUS THE PRICE OF YOUR CABIN.  THIS YEAR, THE FIRST PERSON TO SIGN UP WILL GET THE PRICIE OF JUST $400, WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE A MEMBER OF THE CLUB.  THEREAFTER, IT WILL BE $450 FOR MEMBERS AND $550 FOR NON-MEMBERS.

THE CRUISE FAIR ON THIS SHIP IS AS LOW AS IT GETS.  RIGHT NOW, YOU CAN GET YOUR OWN, PRIVATE CABIN FOR ABOUT $400.  SO IF YOU SIGN UP NOW, YOU CAN GET FOUR DAYS OF CRUISING PLUS FOUR DAYS OF SHOOT FOR ABOUT $800.  THIS IS THE MOST AFFORDABLE CRUISE WE HAVE EVER PRODUCED.  IF YOU CHOOSE TO SHARE A CABIN, IT WILL COST EVEN LESS!

A NOTE FOR EVERYONE, CABINS ARE CHEAP NOW.  AS THE SHIP FILLS UP, THE FARES WILL CLIMB.  ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO RESERVE A CABIN IS TO PAY THE DEPOSIT.  THE BALANCE WON'T BE DUE UNTIL OCTOBER.

TAYLOR IS OUR FIRST MODEL FOR THIS CRUISE.  I EXPECT TO ADD MORE.  SHE WILL POSE UP TO COVERED TOPLESS.   SHE IS COMFORTABLE WITH MOST LINGERIE AND WILL BE ABLE TO POSE IN THE CABIN. 

BE THE FIRST TO SIGN UP AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE DEEP DISCOUNT FOR THE FIRST SIGN-UP ONLY!

S
THE INSPIRATION IS A LOVELY, FANTASY CLASS SHIP.  I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED IT.  THE SHIP WAS FULLY REFURBISHED AND FEATURES ALL OF HTE "FUNSHIP 2.0" UPGRADES.  SINCE I HAVE BEEN ABOARD THE CLASS, AND THIS PARTICULAR SHIP, MANY TIMES, I CAN GUIDE YOU TO SOME WONDERFUL PLACES TO SHOOT ABOARD.

  SHOOT LOCATION:   The shoot will take part on a cruise offered by Carnival Cruise Lines.  This is an authorized shoot.  While at sea, we will shoot throughout the ship.   During the cruise, we are allowed to shoot in some of the closed bars and other public rooms.  We get free rein of the open public spaces, including the casino. 

We will have organized, planned shoots, at each of our ports of call, including transportation to shooting locations on Catalina and transportation by van to a n amazing beach near Ensenada.  We pay all the expenses to organize these shoots.

There are planned group shoots every day of the cruise, both on the ship and ashore.  We also plan a sunset shoot.  We will have a full light kit with us onboard the ship.
 
         
  SHIP DETAILS:   We are traveling on the Carnival Inspiration.  It departs out of Long Beach, CA.  It is your responsibility to purchase and pay for your own accomodations on the ship.  You are free to purchase your own cabin or we can assist you in sharing if that is your preference.  We do not guarantee that shared accomodations are available but will try to accomodate you.  The Carnival Inspirtion offers cabins in the following classes:  Interior, Ocean View or Suite.   When you pay your deposit we will either assist you in sharing a cabin, if possible or will provide you with instructions to book your cabin directly with Carnival.  It is important to contact our representative to book your cabin since that will coordinate you with our group.   DO NOT BOOK YOUR CABIN ONLINE.  Cruising is an all inclusive price.  When you pay for your cabin, it will include all shipboard transporation, meals and most activities.  Alcholic beverages, certain upgraded dining, shore excursions, some spa services, tips and upgraded room service are not included.  Speak with Carnival to answer any specific quesitons.   Payment of your deposit guarantees you a place on the shoot but does not guarantee you a cabin on the ship.  If there are no cabins available on the day you pay your deposit, we will refund your deposit.  We recommend that you either make a reservation for a cabin or arrange to share a cabin as soon as possible once you pay the deposit on your tuition.  While there are cabins available on the ship now, the ships sometimes fill up quickly and unexpectedly.  To reserve a cabin on the ship, you need only pay the deposit.  You will not have to pay your balance until June 1, 2019.  Carnival also offers an "easy-pay" plan.  
         
  SHOOT LIMITS:   The limits for Taylor for this shoot will be fashon and swimwear in Catalina, covered topless at Ensenada and covered topless and lingerie onboard the ship . If we add models, we can select models with the limits preferred by the group.  We are able to do full nude on the beach near Ensenada so we can add a model that is comfortable with nudes. The models will be shooting both fashion and swimwear on the ship and while ashore.  
         
  PRIVATE BOOKINGS:   The models are available for private bookings.  Private bookings are available, but you are not required to book a model.  You may do a private booking on the ship any time there is no organized group shoot or on shore after the groups are completed in each port.

The rate for private bookings will be $45 per half hour or $85hr up to Covered Topless.  If we add a model doing nudes, the rate for nudes will be $65 per 1/2hr or $100 per hr.
 
         
  RELEASE:   This event includes a non-nude promotional release for both models.  If you book either model for a minimum of an hour, you will get a full commercial release which is good for all shots taken on the cruise.  If you do not wish to book a model yet want a commercial release, you may purchase a commercial release, good for the entire cruise, for just $50.  
         
  DISCOUNTS:   There are no special discounts for this event.  
         
  PAYMENT:   Payment can be made by cash, PayPal or credit card.  To sign up for the cruise, you must pay your tuition in full with your registration. Once paid, your tuition is non-refundable, unless we sign up five or more photographers.  If we sign up five photographers, you will receive a full refund as soon as the next photographer signs up.  We have had as many as ten photographers on this cruise in the past so it is entirely possible.  After November 1, 2019, or if we sign up less than five photographers, your tuition will be non-refundable.  If, however, you cancel prior to December 15th, you will be given event credit, equal to the amount of tuition you paid which can be used, as credit, towards payment for GPS events.  On November 1, 2019, we will switch to late pricing and all prices will go up $100.  That is done to encourage you to register early so we can plan better for the cruise.  Also, once the ship fills up, we will no longer be able to accomodate more photographers.   
         
  MODEL RATIO:   The ratio for this cruise will be no more than four models per photographer.  Our normal goal is a three to one ratio.  
         
  EXCLUDED ITEMS:   The price of tuition includes the fee paid to Group Photo Shoots to produce the event.  The tuition does not inclulde your cabin onboard the Carnival Miracle along with any other charges incurred with Carnival for things such as alcholic beverages, tips, casino charges, shore excursions or upgraded dining.  It also doesn't include transportation to the ship or parking at the port.  Group Photo Shoots will cover all expenses for the models and provide transportation and other services to conduct photo shoots both on the ship and ashore.  Sometimes, as a group, the photographers decide to do things such as upgraded dining, shore excursions, etc which are not included, however if the group decides to do extra things, for which there is a cost, you are not obligated to participate.   Your tuition does not include meals at restaurants ashore.   Your tuition includes all group shoots, but if you elect to book a model for an individual private shoot, the cost of private shoots is also not included.
