Models are only obligated for the 5 organized/scheduled shoots. After that any model is free to shoot or not with anyone they like at anytime. The models compensation for the entire 7 days is the FREE cruise and vacation. Do not come on this cruise with the intention of making money from paid one on one shoots, as you will be disappointed. You are required to sign a release for all images shot at the group shoots to any photographer who requests one. What to bring for shooting. Beach in Mexico, Pool in Mexico and anything YOU want pictures in on board the ship. Photographers will be sharing cabins with other photographers, models with models, unless you make other arrangements.
This is intended as a TF event. Unlike most cruise ship photoshoots, this event provides ZERO profit to the promotor.
Each photographer attending this cruiseshoot MUST also purchase a cruise ship ticket for the model of his/her choice. Photographers attending the cruiseshoot MUST also allow other photographers to shoot the model that they bring. Every photographer will have shooting access to all models attending. You are required to provide copies of all edited images from the group shoots to the models, unless other arrangements are made. Full resolution non-watermarked images from the group shoots, suitable for printing, shall be provided upon request by the model. By attending this event, you grant permission for the models to use all provided images from the group shoots for self promotion. I will add your name to the confirmed list when I have a cabin/booking number. Photographers will be sharing cabins with other photographers, models with models, unless you make other arrangements.
Clear with me PRIOR to purchasing tickets to be included in this group.

GENERAL INFO ABOUT THE SHIP:
One night is formal dining. A dress for the ladies. A tux for the men,(JK) but a jacket or tie or both would help.
Way to windy on deck for softboxes etc.so when shooting KISS (keep it simple) Only 1 electrical outlet in the cabins plan ahead. If you can carry your own bags on and off the ship you will not have to wait in groups to off load. You are allowed to bring 1 bottle of wine or champagnie on board. You do go through customs, any drugs and NO CRUISE! Try not to pack for 3 months the cruise is only 7days. Parking at the terminal in Long Beach is $15./day. Think carpool! The entire group usually dine together however that is an option. EVERYTHING outside of the 5 organized shoots is yours do do as you please.
Carnival Cruise contact is Shane

If you want cabins close together speak to him.
Tell him you are with Photographer/Model group.
You can buy your cruiseship tickets anyplace else you like.
If you choose to use another source you can not be assured of a cabin close to the rest of the group.
You will also have to make arrangements for dining with the rest of the group. Tickets should be purchased soon because the price can vary day to day. The price increases as it gets closer to sailing time.
REQUIRED PAPERWORK TO SAIL:
As I understand it do not need a passport you can board with a picture ID and a certified (seal embossed) birth certificate. The names on both documents must match. Maiden name on one and married name on the other will NOT work. If you want to be sure of getting on board a passport or passport card is best.
Photographers & models are welcome to invite other friends and/or relatives on the cruise, but they Will not interfere with the 5 scheduled shoots and will pay their own way. The only people welcome at the scheduled shoots are the sponsoring photographers, the models and other pre-arranged help makeup etc.
