hi all, so far there are a total of 13 sign-ups for the trip. The following is the itinerary proposed by Kristupa from Indonesia....they've specially gotten permission from the Ministry of Culture to allow us access into to Boroburdur at an unGodly hour to do a sunrise shoot.
I quoted wrong prices for the airfare as its a promotional fare thats only good for immediate travel. The actual fare is a little more .....round trip airfare about $250......but the overall budget for airfare/3 nights hotel/transport should stay around $400

Hi fellas....THE LIST IS FULL.
BUT if you're still keen, please continue sending me emails and if anyone drops out, you'll be invited to take their slots.
Sorry keeping the group size to 15 as its a manageable number and I also want to spend the time shooting and not chasing after lost sheep.
For those of you who made the list, please go through the itenary and begin to do research on the places listed. Its a good experience to do research and read up on the area before actually arriving. You'll have a better idea of what and how you want to shoot it.

Does the models come free or we are expected to chip-in?
I am now thinking very hard!

6th April 2004, 03:36 PM
the models I believe are already costed into the trip.... the list is currently full and I'll start a new thread and privately email those involved with more details.
if ur keen just send me an email with your full name as appears in the passport and i'll slot you in if anyone backs out......BUT make sure you're very very sure that you'll make it....if 50/50 then dont put your name down.

Glad u like those pics....
the shots were taken during sunrise....
tip;- try to stay at Manohara hotel which is within Brobudur's compound(bout S$50 per room/night,and u can climb the structure anytime coz the gates are beyong hotel grounds. U may not be able to access it after operating hours from outside and it may get overcrowding with tourists / students too...
7th April 2004, 03:52 PM
we'll be staying at the 4 Star Saphir hotel inside Yogja because its in a lively area and has got alot of street shooting ops as well.
I've researched your recommendation of Manohara ......nice guesthouse at the door steps of Boroburdur.
But its relatively out of the way from everything else
Thanks for the suggestion anyway, appreciate it.

The Indonesian portal has started canvassing the trip and has loaded up an advertising banner with logos of Clubsnap and Offstone on their front page and other important pages in their forum www.fotografer.net
