  WE ARE HEADING OUT FOR A WEEK TO MEXICO ON THE CARNIVAL SPLENDOR! THIS WILL BE OUR THIRD TIME CRUISING TO PUERTA VALLERTA.  THIS WILL BE OUR FOURTEENTH CRUISE IN TOTAL ... OMG! 

WE JUST DID THIS CRUISE IN JANUARY AS A CHARTER EVENT.  BY REQUEST, WE TOOK A SINGLE PHOTOGRAPHER AND TWO MODELS.  IT WAS AMAZING.  NOW WE WANT TO GO BACK WITH AS A GROUP.   THE LAST TIME, WE TURNED DOWN OTHER PHOTOGRPAHERS THAT WANTED TO SHOOT.  THIS TIME WE ARE GOING TO GO WITH AN INTIMATE GROUP OF JUST FOUR PHOTOGRAPHERS AND TWO MODELS.  WE STILL HAVE SPOTS, BUT THEY WILL GO QUICKLY.   COME JOIN US FOR SEVEN DAYS AND SEVEN NIGHTS OF SHOOTING AND CRUISING FUN ... WE'RE OFF TO MEXICO!


WE'VE GOT TWO GREAT MODELS WE'VE GOT CHRISTIANA AND DITA.  THIS IS A GREAT LINE-UP! INDEED, WE ALREADY HAVE PHOTOGRAPHERS SIGNED UP FOR THIS CRUISE AND THEY SIGNED UP BECAUSE OF THE MODELS THAT ARE COMING.  THEIR ATTENDANCE IS FIRM.  THERE WILL BE NO CHANGES IN THE LINE-UP!

THIS TIME WE ARE REPEATING THE PARADIGM WE USED ON THE LAST SEVEN DAY CRUISE, WE'VE DESIGNED THIS CRUISE TO BE AN AFFORDABLE SEVEN DAY CRUISE!  WE HAVE GREAT MODELS AND LOTS OF SHOOTING OPPORTUNITIES, BUT WE HAVE KEPT THE COST DOWN.

THIS CRUISE WILL BE FASHION AND SWIMWEAR!  WE WILL SHOOT FASHION AND SWIMWEAR ALL OVER THE SHIP.  CARNIVAL IS AMAZINGLY COOPERATIVE IN ALLOWING US TO SHOOT VIRTUALLY EVERYWHERE.  THEY EVEN OPEN UP CLOSED SPACES TO ALLOW US ACCESS.  IN ADDITION, WE WILL DO SOME AMAZING BEACH SHOOTS AND WILL EVEN SHOOT ON HORSES ON THE BEACH IN MEXICO.

THE RESULT IS A LOW COST SEVEN DAY CRUISE ... PLUS, WE'RE STILL COVERING ALL THE EXPENSES FOR THE MODELS AND PAYING THE COST OF SHORE ACTIVITIES AT THE PORTS!

SOMETHIGN TO NOTE IS THAT WE ARE CRUISING ON THE CARNIVAL SPLENDOR.  THE SPLENDOR IS UNIQUE IN THAT IT HAS SOME OF THE MOST REMARKABLE FREE FOOD OFFERINGS IN THE CARNIVAL FLEET.  WHILE ALL OF THE SHIPS HAVE FREE BUFFETS AND MORE, THE SPLENDOR IS UNIQUE.  IT WAS ORIGINALLY DESIGNED TO BE A "COSTA" SHIP BUT WAS RE-PURPOSED TO CARNIVAL.  THE SHIP IS ONE OF A KIND.  IN RECONFIGURING THE SHIP, THEY WERE ABLE TO ADD A LOT MORE FREE FOOD CHOICES.  AS AN EXAMPLE, THEY HAVE AN INDIAN RESTAURANT AS WELL AS BAR-B-QUE.  THEY STILL HAVE THE MONGOLIAN BAR-B-QUE ONBOARD AS WELL ALONG WITH A WONDERFUL GRILL.  THE CARNIVAL SPLENDOR IS REALLY A STEP ABOVE MANY OF THE OTHER SHIPS SO GET READY.  IT  WAS WONDERFUL THE LAST TIME WE WERE THERE AND IT WILL BE WONDERFUL AGAIN!

  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 bar 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 a horse shoot on the beach in Mazatallan.  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 both a sunrise and sunset shoot.  We will have a full light kit with us onboard the ship.
 
         
  SHIP DETAILS:   We are traveling on the Carnival Splendor.  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 Splendore offers cabins in the following classes:  Interior, Ocean View, Balcony 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 this shoot will be fashon and swimwear.  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.
 
         
  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, a three hundred ($300) dollar deposit is due with your registration.  Payment must be made, in full,  by June 1, 2020 or your registration will be cancelled and your deposit forfeited.  Once made, your deposit is non-refundable, however, if you cancel prior to June 1, 2019, your deposit will be applied as event credit, which may be used, as any credit, towards payment for GPS events.  On May 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 two models per photographer.  We have two models that are commited to this cruise and we are taking no more than four photographers.  
         
  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.
