Bracelets, Quadcopters, and smiles!
I’m super excited because I’ve been receiving a stream of good news finally… things are not quite official yet but by Wednesday or Thursday I will have news for you guys concerning a major sponsor that will be providing us with a whole bunch of equipment for us to play with for the duration of our tour. I’ve been working extremely hard with Erwan to put this whole thing together (almost over two weeks) and I’m just bursting with excitement to let it all out!!
Although I can’t say all that much for now, one thing I can let you know is that Lovinpix.com, an upcoming french photo store will be sponsoring a QuadCopter that we will be able to play with. I’ll be helping them pay for the express shipping so that we can have it in time for this MONDAY for my upcoming epic mass medieval photoshoot (still spots available if you wanted to participate!).
For those of you who don’t know what a quadcopter is, it’s basically a fancy helicopter capable of supporting a small camera. This means aerial behind the scenes videos for you guys!!! How awesome is that?
I’m not sure what model I will be receiving but for now, this is an idea of what I’ll be getting!
In other news, I also received the sexy Von Wong bracelets that I can’t WAIT to send out your way. I’ve also been dealing with The Impossible Project to try and get them to make me a bulk deal to send me 15 packs of polaroids (for a total of 120) to make sure I have enough to send your way. I’m not even thinking about how complicated it will be to send all these out while touring … haha
Besides that, I’m in the process of setting up my PARIS shoots (dates, models, workshops) so stay tuned for that. Nicolas Vallet from Strobi.fr is actually helping me put the whole thing together and if all goes well, I’ll be able to offer a free workshop to all those who have helped to make this project possible. To be fair to the rest of the funders, we will record the entire thing and offer this particular workshop free of charge to all funders. Of course it won’t be as good as the real thing but we can’t possibly fly you all in! Sorry… !
Finally, I’ve been quite hard at work putting together a bunch of videos you may have seen stream by. One, an entertaining BTS video on how I built my studio and Two, a review I’m finishing up featuring an interesting Preset Kit for Lightroom 4 by the SLRLounge.
So that’s pretty much it!
Erwan is actually healing quite well and tomorrow we were going to get together and go do some flips and tricks over at the gym and hopefully put together a small and entertaining video that shows that we DO have a life outside of photography!!
Alright that’s it for now guys, hope you’re all doing great.
Stay tuned! Big news in the next couple days…. !!!
Ps. 9650$ !!!! Only 350 before we hit the five figures :O !!!
