The 'Carnival Miracle' cruiseship will be the host sailing ship for this funfilled event.  It's a 6 day 'Cruiseboat Photoshoot' docking at picturesque Cabo San Lucas and Puerta Vallarta, Mexico.  If you're looking for someone who really knows how to put together some great shoots on this venue, THIS is your cruiseshoot.  Your ticket purchase includes your cabin and all the food you can eat at both the (breakfast/lunch/dinner) buffet and the nightly captain's dinner.  Once you are on board the ship, it will be easy to swap rooms between models and photographers, if that is your intention.  Here's the link for ticket purchasing details, contact Kiki at 800-819-3902  Ext. 95922  http://www.carnival.com/BookingEngine/S … ompare=PFA

This will be a 'one to one' photographer to model ratio event.  Cabo San Lucas and Puerta Vallarta (see images below) are hands down the most beautiful beaches on Mexico's Pacific coast.  This cruiseship has 2 nightclubs that are ROCKIN every night, resulting in MASSIVE funtimes when not shooting.  Cameras also welcome inside nightclubs.  There's also FREE entertainment, dance clubs and comedy shows every night.   The 2 scheduled on ship photoshoots will be conducted in the late afternoon and early evening at on-board locations reserved by 'guest services' on the ship.

ATTENTION INTERESTED PHOTOGRAPHERS:  Unlike cruiseboat photoshoots organized by others, this event provides ZERO profit to the promotor. You DO NOT pay me, you purchase your discount cruise tickets directly from Carnival Cruiselines at a discounted rate.  Each photographer attending MUST also purchase a cruise ship ticket for the model of his (or her) choice.  And because it's YOUR model selection for this event, you are not forced to shoot a model that some organizer decides to invite without your input.  Photographers must also allow other photographers to shoot their invited models, who will in turn allow you to photograph their invited model, providing all photographers with a multi-model shoot that YOU had a hand in selecting.  OVER 20 FANTASTIC MODELS SEEKING PHOTOGRAPHER SPONSORS.  Click on this link to see who they are!  http://www.modelmayhem.com/casting/1945729   

ATTENTION INTERESTED MODELS:  Models attending this cruiseboat shoot receive a FREE cruise ticket from their sponsoring photographer.  Any additional expenses accumulated on the cruise (bar tabs/souveniors/on shore expenses) will be YOUR responsibility.  Model releases will be included for all 4 groupshoot photoshoots within the purchase of your cruiseship ticket.  Models can also receive compensation pay by booking a few shoots on the 'Friday Paid One On Ones' day.  Models will have the right to use any photo that photographers post or use.  If you're interested in attending, please post a message on this events forum thread indicating your availablity, and photographers interested in sponsoring you will make contact.

ATTENTION EVERYONE ATTENDING:  To get on the cruiseship, you MUST HAVE either a US Passport, OR a certified Birth Certificate accompanied by a State Drivers License or State issued ID Card.  Unlike other cruiseboat photoshoots offered by other sponsors, photographers & models are welcome to invite friends on this cruiseshoot, but they MUST NOT interfere with the proceedings of the 4 planned groupshoots.  The 2 groupshoots onboard ship will last for 4 hours each (with 15 minute refreshment break).  The 2 groupshoots on the beaches in Mexico will last for approximately 5 hours.  ALL participating photographers and models on this cruise MUST attend the four groupshoots.  Photographers can not sponsor more than TWO models, as maintaining a ratio as close as possible to 'one on one' is best for group events.  Please post a message here if you're available and interested.  DONT DELAY on making your reservations.  Ticket prices for this event WILL DEFINITELY GO UP!   Feel free to post a message here with questions, as well as confirmation of your participation.  Hope to seeya on the Nov 2nd 'Cruiseboat Photoshoot'... borat

Gary, going to this cruise has shown me what I've been missing!  MEGA fun times.  Great group of people.  Thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip.  Try my best to make it to the next one.

Hey GFB... I'm going to run a casting call in late December for this event, and will list the models (with one photo) that respond... stay tuned.  You are also welcome to run a casting.  Several photographers the last 3 years for SM 'Cruiseboat Photoshoots' and came up with some fantastic models... borat

And alittle word to the wise.  About 10 years ago, I went on a January Carnival Cruise to Catalina and Mexico.  The weather was FUCKING FRIGID and I just about froze to death at BOTH locations... as well as to and from on the cruiseship.  I can't imagine trying to conduct a photoshoot in such miserable weather.   If you're smart, you'll SERIOUSLY think twice about going on a cruise in January or February... wink

November should be nice if no tropical storms. Gary, your right about January and February! I went last February and it was too cold on deck. The pool was empty (no water) until we got to Mexico. We were lucky it didn't rain and was warm for that time of year. I would only do Caribbean islands out of Florida during winter months.

I did some "what if" pricing. Ocean view for two is $1250 total. Interior room for FOUR is $1550. So, I could bring 3 models with interior room. It seems like the low rate forces a 4 person occupancy.

Bob, 4 people crammed in a little interior room would be chaotic to say the least.  The clothes of three models are gonna bury you alive.  And you'll never get bathroom time with 3 girls in the room.  LOL.

All this is TRUE.  I'd recommend bringing NO MORE than 2 models per photographer.  Keeping the ratio to as close to 'one on one' as possible makes for an event that is MUCH EASIER to organize and coordinate... AND... it would save you several hundred dollars... wink

I did 24 hr reserve on Ocean View for two. It seems there are only a few rooms available on that deck. The room is near the rear but I prefer the front, so maybe a room will become available.

As a participant of this past cruise… I would totally recommend that you read thru the post for the last cruise.  A lot of the same basic questions were also asked & answered…

So that might help (but yes, you might want to sit down and get comfortable for the read).  :-)

I have the guest info empty. They won't push for the info until the month before sailing. If I add someone then change it is $50 I think. If the model is reliable and she wants the comfort of seeing her name on the reservation, then I would add her.

Yep... that's the way it works... AND... if you buy your tickets this far in advance... you'll save a few hundred dollars anyway... borat
