    After a rough edit/cullI have close to 14G of pics on a portable drive. Happy to bring that and copy onto a common drive or do the same with event person. Thoughts......... alternatively can cull more, also can shrink as these are full size typically 10M jpgs?

    Sorry Ronald & Co, but I am going to have to opt out at this late stage. I have not been well and don't feel up to a long day of being on my feet in the hot sun. Apologies again and I hope all goes well. Am sure you will get some great shots!

    Pop in at 6pm tonight to get passes, vest, map, kind of shots etc. Those who can't make it tonight just need to visit and pick up the passes at the very least or you don't get to walk on the road or get behind the scenes. We have been told for health and safety we have to wear fluro vests but Ronald has some people can borrow.

    November 21, 2013

  • Ronald A.

    Change of meeting plans. Please pick up your passes etc at the studio as we will not be meeting at the studio on Sunday. We are heading off to the Parade at 10am to photograph preparations. If anyone cannot make it tonight, these can be picked up Friday or Saturday. any questions [masked]

  • Ronald A.

    I had a meeting with the Organiser today, there are some basic health and safety issues plus a few suggestions of the types of shots they would like but overall it is up to use to do what we like. I have maps of the parade and passes for Blues Bar level 3 in the Aotea centre.

    Does anyone want to have a meeting on Wednesday or Thursday 6pm? can do both days at Chan Andreassend 5 Rose Road Ponsonby ph[masked]

    any evening except Monday would suit me, thanks

    November 15, 2013

  • Ronald A.

    I have a meeting on the Monday with the organiser, to go over the type of shots. We could have a meeting a few days before to clarify things if needs be. I will send out the list. There is also an after party for all the volunteers which we can join or meet somewhere else depending on numbers

    November 14, 2013

  • Chris Z.

    Just to clarify meet at 5 Rose Rd, @1pm? Thanks

    November 3, 2013

    • Ronald A.

      I`ll let you know shortly, the assembly and dressing of the performers start at 8am in the Aotea centre. So there will be some interesting shots there as well. I will schedule a meeting shortly to clarify everything. I am doing three shows at the studio this week 5 Rose Road. Thurs-Saturday till 11pm if anyone wants to meetup then. We are doing performances and setting up some lighting installations called Night Circus. Sort of Fellini meets the Mexican Day of the Dead.

    We will credit you. Next year will be paid. We want to use your images for free. Grow your networks.

    Your joking right?

    November 3, 2013

    • Ronald A.

      Hi Paul there are some comments below which clarifies why I got involved. This is not about money or business, it is a charity event for the community which has run for 80 years on the same basis. The event runs on contras and over 4000 volunteers. It also happens to be a valuable brand to associate with as it has instant recognition and alot of goodwill works perfectly with social media etc. But overall it is about giving something back to the community.

      November 3, 2013

  • Annuskha

    Thanks Ronald

    The photographs will belong to the events company so they can use them as a record and to promote future parades and also share with the est 1000 volunteers. They also try to credit the photographer if they knew who did which. You can still use them in your portfolios, blogs etc. The event is managed by Crackerjack promotions in conjunction with Farmers and Heart of the city. The reason I got involved was when I enquired about doing afloat to promote the Creatives Arts the cost was about $15000 so they suggested doing a contra for next year. The association with brand recognition is also high value as we are allowed to use the phrase official photographer for the 80th Farmers Santa Parade. Helps with google rankings as well! I think each photographer will have 1-2 assistants to get the people posed ready for each shot too

    Hello, So just to clarify: Our photographs would belong to the events company - does this mean we are still able to use the images as well? ie. in portfolios etc, or is it just as if we never took them? Also, who is the events company? Thanks
