  AS A GROUP WE HAVE BEEN CRUISING NOW FOR ABOUT TEN YEARS.  THIS WILL BE OUR FIFTEENTH CRUISE.  IT WILL ALSO BE THE FIRST TIME WE'VE LEFT OUT OF SAN FRANCISCO.  CARNIVAL HAS MOVED OUR FAVORITE SHIP, THE MIRACLE, TO SAN FRANCISCO DURING THE SUMMER MONTH.   THEY NOW OFFER AN ENSENADA CRUISE OUT OF SAN FRANCISCO FOR THE PRICE OF A CRUISE FROM LONG BEACH.  THE BIG DIFFERENCE IS THAT THE CRUISE IS NOW ONE DAY LONGER AND YOU DON'T LOSE THE TIME TO TRAVEL TO SO. CAL.

HAVE YOU SEEN MY MUSIC VIDEO "THE WAY TO SPEND THE DAY?"  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT.  IT WAS MADE ON AN ENSENADA CRUISE, OUT OF LONG BEACH, SEVERAL YEARS AGO.  YOU CAN SEE THE CARNIVAL INSPIRATION ANCHORED IN THE BACKGROUND.

WE'VE DONE ENSENADA A NUMBER OF TIMES.  IT IS A PORT THAT WE ARE VERY EXPERIENCED AT!  WE HAVE THE LOCATION AND THE ROUTINE DOWN PAT.  WE HAVE ACCESS TO AN AMAZING BEACH IN ENSENADA WHICH IS AN INCREDIBLE PLACE TO SHOOT.

WE SAIL TO TWO PORTS, SAN DIEGO AND ENSENADA.  IN SAN DIEGO, WE PLAN TO SHOOT FASHION ON THE WATERFRONT.  THERE ARE SOME GREAT PLACES TO SHOOT, INCLUDING A TALL SHIP.  WE EXPECT TO AMAZE YOU WITH SOME GREAT WATERFRONT SHOOTING EXPERIENCES.

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.

THIS IS A FIVE DAY, RATHER THAN A FOUR DAY CRUISE.  THIS GIVES US TWO FULL SEA DAYS.  WE WILL SHOOT BOTH FASHION AND NUDES ON THE SHIP.   WE EXPECT A SUNSET FASHION SHOOT.  WE'LL DO SOME GLAMOUR IN GATSBY GARDENS.  THERE  WILL BE FASHION ON THE STAIRCASES AND AN EXOTIC GLAMOUR SHOOT IN THE FRANKENSTEIN CLUB WHEN IT IS CLOSED DURING THE DAY.  THE MIRACLE IS OUR FAVORITE SHIP BECUASE, FAR AND AWAY, IT HAS MORE GREAT SHOOTING LOCATIONS THAN ANY SHIP WE'VE BEEN IN THE CARNIVAL FLEET.  HONESTLY, WE LOVE THE MIRACLE AND ARE EXCITED TO BE CRUISING ON IT TWICE IN 2020.

WE HAVE COMMITTED TO TWO MODELS FOR THIS CRUISE, ONE DOING FULL NUDE AND THE OTHER COVERED TOPLESS.  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 RIVERIA 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 PRICE IS JUST $400 OR $500 FOR NON-MEMBERS.

THE CRUISE FARE ON THIS SHIP IS REASONABLE AT ABOUT $800 FOR A PRIVATE, INSIDE CABIN OR HALF IF YOU SHARE WITH ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER.  THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST REASONABLY PRICED CRUISES WE HAVE EVER OFFERED.

DON'T MISS THIS GREAT CRUISE!

  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 in San Diego and transportation by van to an 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 Miracle.  It departs out of San Francisco, 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 Miracle offers cabins in the following classes:  Interior, Ocean View, Balcony or Suite.   If you are not experienced cruising, please speak with us before booking your cabin so we can discuss the benefits and disadvantages of different ship locations.  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 January, 2019.   
         
  SHOOT LIMITS:   The limits for Taylor for this shoot will be fashon and swimwear in San Diego, covered topless at Ensenada and covered topless and lingerie onboard the ship.  Bella is available for fashion and swimwear in San Diego as well as lingerie and nude onboard the ship and in Ensenada.  
         
  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.  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 January 15, 2020, 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.  Also, once the ship fills up, we will no longer be able to accomodate more photographers.  We may raise the price of the tuition for this event after January 1, 2019, however if you sign up before then your price is guaranteed.  
         
  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.
