Fiddling with figures [during a meeting].

Cost per image (unaudited):

We had about 70 people on this expedition.
Each person conservatively cost about $1,000 by the time all incidentals, travel to pier and back, medical, flights, etc...
From page 66 till now I counted approximately 150 unique images.
Do the math!

Oh there are many more photos than 150 unique images

[during a meeting--Gary, this isn't taking incremental time].

Rough estimate of cost per image (unaudited):

We had about 70 people allocated to this expedition. [No shows still cost--unrecoverable sunk cost.]
Each person conservatively cost about $1,000 by the time passage is paid for, gratuities, drinks, taxes, all incidentals, travel to pier and back, medical, flights, internet, communication coats, parking, postage, etc...
From page 66 till now I counted approximately 150 UNIQUE images still posted (some have disappeared).
Do the math!
Currently it's about US$500 or about 6,500 pesos per image posted!

Of course, each additional image reduces the per image cost as it spreads the fixed costs.

This doesn't figure in the cost of hardware we assembled and lost (couple cameras drenched).

I haven't figure in the man/woman-years of expertise brought to bear on the prime directive, it's FMV (Fair Market Value), opportunity costs, goodwill, consequential damages, legal fees, etc, ad nauseam, :-).

Ok this made my head hurt! And I spent way more then $1000 per person! But that's a good thing! Because it was all just for fun!
You can add to your math another 30~40 images that I edited! I just can't figure out how to post them here so FB is it! Oh and there some on my MM account!

Working on getting caught up on getting pics out to everyone. Easier for me to mail a cd to you. Message me your mailing address and I will send you a cd with all photos. Straight out of the camera, no editing.
This one only has been cropped. Otherwise straight out of the camera.

Yani:
Use the middle link under your MM image "Image Tag" and strip off leading and trailing extraneous characters to get this:
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/12 … 5046e6.jpg
Add leading [img]and trailing[/img].
Voilรก!

Mark, et al, you are more than welcome to recalculate all estimates and counts--I was just doing this while paying attention to a speaker, taking a quiz, and completing a survey. Yani said he spent way more and I'm basing this on inside cabin rates, which I know are low end. I erred on conservative side in some cases. Since no one is using this figure for billing purposes it's just for curiousity's sake. [I'm typing this while doing something else. :-) Ira, it's not time I could be allocating to post processing. I'm not in a position to do that ATM, lol]

JT. I might need to recalculate based on the fact that I spent over $4,000 on a trip ~

[The casing on the names are inconsistent but is intended to maintain integrity with the models' profiles. Translation: "emelle" is all lower case and "NYMPH" is in all CAPS because that's what their profile reads...and I'm enough of a purist not to "PhotoShop" them into consistent Upper case initial letter and rest lowercase.]

As of 23:00 October 1, the list seems stable!

Title--not mine to title but I think I'll call it "Nine in Nothing! :-)" ๐Ÿ˜‰

Question; how is everyone handling release forms?
Mailing out hard copy with a self-addressed stamped envelope?
E-mailing a file and having it mailed back?
