Why Money is NOT Collected at Public Parks.  This was added per photographers asking about it. You're Not Allowed to Collect Money, unless you have a Commerial Permit.  I.E. Selling admission and food.  Collecting Money is one of the best ways to get shut-down and cited.  They could also confiscate the money, plus equipment.  Do you want that risk?  If you argue, they'll have a greater reason to cite you.

There's some exceptions for money collection at Private Parks, If granted permission.  But, usually for Public Parks, you'll need something like a Carnival Permit.  Selling food equals Health Inspection and Vending Permit.  You can see where this goes.  That's why we only ask a Small amount before-hand to help cover expenses.

The management does NOT allow for their name or address to be used.  Please ask questions Prior to date.  Don't wait too long.  Directions sent about 3 days prior.

If a new photographer would like to join, it's recommended that you register soon. 

Stocks...I want people to make money.  Even though the Dow fell 200+ on Fri, it's Doubled over 4yrs.  Per last time, I felt the market was relatively high and portfolios should have been adjusted safer.  If done, you should still be near highs.  On Fri, I bought a little tech and retail.  I like TJ Maxx over Ross this time, but would like a lower price.  My forecasts are Dow 13100, maybe 12600.  No guarantees.

Stocks...The market fell 242, to 13103, which was my forecast.  There's a chance of a short term rally, but it may not hold.  No guarantees, good luck.

Here's another photo from Oct.

All have been Emailed/Notified.  That's probably the last notice for Sunday, unless there's something important or a cute model is available.  It was only $10/$15.  We need to work on other things now; the Stock Market is open again, Breeders Cup, and the Shoot.

-Photographers notified, models already notified

Everything went as Planned on Sunday.  A gorgeous day with great photo opps.  It was a Sell-Out, as expected for ONLY $10/15.   About 8 photogs had to be turned away, in the Future, it's Best to Contact Before the Date, (meaning 3-4 weeks prior with payment), so other arrangements can be made, otherwise it goes as planned.

For Dec shoot, a person/temp helper has it verified.  We are now reviewing models.

This location has Many Areas to photograph and the lighting changes per season, along with the landscape.  If a person tells you they know everything, you should question.

Dec will be a special event with very limited attendance.  Plans determined by others.  The helper provided Dec 1.  We'll have a new post later.  Should be fun.

Stock & Bond Update.  With the Re-Election and the verge of Unknown Higher Taxes, the Market has crashed to 12571, which was very near my earlier 2nd tier forecast of 12600.  (The Healthcare bill is also a Tax.)  Threatening to penalize the rich doesn't always work, especially when there's Tax Free Bonds-Muni's.  A person could just put more into it and less into other investments which could slow economic growth.  Tax Free's have already begun to rise in value.

It's now more likely the Market could fall to 12200, maybe even 11800 in a severe case.  But, right now I think it may hold 12200-12500, and there could be short-term bounce.  Some stocks I'm following are TJ Maxx, Limited, Disney, Heinz, Altria and Apple.  Some retailers may continue do well and increase dividends.  Limited had special dividends the past 2yrs.  Disney has an Annual dividend.  No Guarantees.

Now implementing outside offers for new photographers.  Projected completion of 10% for Feb, 30% Mar,  and 100% for Aug.

-Stock and Bonds.  Another great year in 2012, for stocks/bonds.  Many people gained 10-20%.  The first wk of 2013 has been a hit for stocks.  The market is relatively High 13400+, but I think it wants to go higher.  Safety play is to take some profits.  Many companies paid spec dividends in Dec.  Sands paid $3/sh, spec and reg.  They also quietly gained about $7.  Take some profits.  Top current picks, TJ Maxx and Disney.  No guarantees.

Now preparing for Mar 3, est time 11:30A-4:00P.   New project expected to be at 30%.

Stocks...Appears to be in a high level consolidation.  Even though the market remains relatively high, I still think it wants to go higher and wouldn't be surprised there was a subtantial rally.  Some stocks that were oversold recently are First Energy and Microsoft.  The latter reports earnings this week.  Both go ex div in Feb.  No guarantees.

Plans for Mar are moving as scheduled.  Intial on line versions expected in early Feb.

Stocks...Dow now 13825.  Many portfolios are above all time highs.  Even though the market may go higher, be Smart and take some profits.  You can still hold some if the market moves higher, but 14k is a double top and a correction is possible at that level.  I think it may go past 14k, before a correction, but start planning now.  No guarantees.

Next shoot Mar 3.  Stage 1 of outside offers to be implemented.

Stocks...Dow closing at Multi-Year Highs on Fri, at 14009.  Congratulations!  I want people to make money.  2 recent Top Picks;  Disney, all-time today.  TJ Maxx, about 1.2 from all-time highs.  I still think the market may move above 14k, right now I'm guessing 14200-14300, so 1 more surge then a correction.  But, take some profits in case is doesn't happen.  No guarantees, good luck.

Stage 1 of outside offers for photographers have begun.  With the Holiday, they should begin to see it later next week.  To give those people a chance, we're going to delay On-Line offers a few days.
