Burlesque or Strip-Tease or Boudoir 

As given opportunity to have photo-shoot in certain style. Which one which you rather take?

Burlesque is a literary, dramatic or musical work intended to cause laughter by caricaturing the manner or spirit of serious works, or by ludicrous treatment of their subjects..
Some of our LUPICKI films included burlesque-style scenes within dramatic films were attempted to recreate the spirit of these performances from the 1930s to the 1960s.

Boudoir photography may, in some cases, be distinguished from other photography genres such as glamour photography, fine art nude photography and erotic photography.

Typical Strip-Tease photo-shoot is in a photographer’s studio or luxury hotel suites. It has become fashionable to create a set of sensual or sexually suggestive images of women (and occasionally men and couples) in “boudoir style” while teasing audience, for which it has been made. The most common manifestation of contemporary boudoir teasing photography is to take variations of candid and posed photographs of the subject partly clothed or in lingerie. Nudity is more often implied than explicit. Commercially the genre is often (though not exclusively) derived from a market for brides to surprise their future husbands by gifting the images on or before their wedding day. Other motivations or inspiration for boudoir photography shoots include anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine’s Day, weight loss regimes, other form of body change or alteration (such as breast augmentation or reduction) and for servicemen and women overseas.

These styles of photoshoot become more attractive to womans after we have released short film The Concealer. Nonetheless film by itself was like documentary through styles.

Terschelling

To be better understand modeling industry in Netherlands, first, we have to better understand demanting market.

 

I have collected few indicators that I think they are the key factors:

 

  • Have you been told that you evoke any emotions while doing nothing?

    (That’s probably the most best one)

  • Have you practise striking poses in public?

  • Have you been taking endlessly selfies from different angles and various styles of lighting?

  • Have you catch yourself thinking about singing-up at some modeling agency?

Lack of Attitude, Style, Confidence, Money/Budget, Clothes, Portfolio can be compensated

Therefore if you are considering moving to the city with larger advertisement market, do not hesitate and contact us!

 

Good Morning.. Ladies & gentleman, first of all I would like to say that I had this beautiful opportunity and kind of like order in our company, to go to Helsinki (Finland) to do some audio-video recording at International conference bonded with Red Cross Committee – Geneva.

Direct photos from Conference are strictly private and for political purposes only! So I am not going to post them, therefore I am posting photos and story captured alongside in Helsinki.

Everyone knows that Finland as country is a bit ahead with technology and electronics so I found this incredible clean design with graffiti

*This graffiti is actually one of the most impressive that We have ever seen all over the world. It does not show individuall approach as many young artist try to show to world. It shows globally how “Finns” thinks!

Sophisticated message in graffiti
Smart Graffiti in Helsinki

While we continue walking through stoned parks massive stone park in walking pathmassive walking park at walking path

We have discovered this abandoned amusement park, which looked so impressive just because it was left “just like that” and shuted down couple of years ago, especially because of these colorful fences and constructions it has made such a interesting stop on our trip.
After like 20mins of walking we went towards to lake Töölönlahti next to central Helsinki Railway Station which is very relaxed place to switch-off and got local swans.

On outskirts of this lake there were several lake-side houses available for rent now, but in past they used to be open-terrace caffés – every single one was runned by successful buisines driven-person.

And this beautiful blue house was currently occupied with German tourists at the time. These tones of blue reminds me a

As we walked alongside this lake..towards to Helsinki′s Railway Station, we have noticed quality massive wood, at handles on walking path all the lenght to the station.

massive wood handles all at walking path towards to national railway station

There could not have been missing tradition “train kiss”

Traditional “train kiss” by Finntrain company.

And by now we have spotted the sign; “MY HELSINKI” which was quite dominant at first place but the size of fonts were actually more impressive (roughly around 6-7meters)

My Helsinki sing in middle of city center.

We decided to continue through railway station towards to city center, where we have been booked for 2nights, but we could have overlook this huge jib at building area, there was construction of one of the most design shopping center mall going on and therefore we have to capture ultimate ambient atmosphere at workplace with only one worker, but on backgroung you can see that Finns are much more ahead with building design, even-though they like to refurbish every 3-4 years.

Incredible details of old traditional finnish building and behind is jib at construction place.
little bit of bicycle mess, inspired by dutch nation and mentality
Worker at building, with detail of stylish design of future shopping mall or shopping center, next to railway station.

Continuing at railway station we have noticed color code for trains. which can be seen only in Finland.

Railway station by itself, is very dominant with guardians. Under this tower you can see another “bicycle rebelition” leaving bicycle on visible public spots.

Guardians should reminds others how strong is nation, and what they are capable of.


By the time from main road you could have seen hotel Sokos where we have been registered for our “swedish tables” complimentary food service on behalf of this International conference.


Photos from inside of hotel lobby & restaurant are strictly prohibited due to copyright of ambient atmosphere, and hotel experience for potential customers!
So we went down deeper to Helsinki central to find out some special points of interest and we have found this incredible 10meters tall statue of proud man with one of the oldest Coca-Cola kiosk public shops which is serving fresh & cold bewerages alongside other soft drinks to all the people.

Walking down the lane..we have discovered another amazing statues this time with two fabulous women, kind of in relaxed postion, which are the same 2 women from Zacharias Topelius′s life carrying strong message; which is still little bit unknown for public.

Despite to all other we have to mention that pink bicycles are extremely popular all over the Helsinki (Due to lack of winter/summer sun circle Finns are very sensitive to dirty jokes and most likely taking them personally, sometimes these messages stays in mind fore several years and could leads to suicide at some point. MUDr. Zbichakovski told us that Finns are truly unique kind of people with long-term acceptance in terms of habbits.
At the same time we were just 2 streets away from our second stop, basically second hotel but on horizont we have noticed another statue, this time it was l
This baby-toy placed on back of pick-up truck is remarkable example of cheering up at workplace. One of the local workers were at that time, repairing decks and walking path. 

This is just an example of traditional central building at Helsinki as we have noticed many of these.

Thinking while walking deeper to central and to our Hotel where we have been booked-in, we could not have notice proud sign of Finland – National Flag at one of the local building and not 1 or 2 they put 5 in row, also we have had been so lucky to see clasical wealthy Finns in this beautiful Audi A5 with custom plate number on car, where plate-numbers like MMM-888 costs as average 3-bedroom flats.

Reaching our destination The Hotel Kämp for checkin-in was very satisfying as we could not have wait any longer to get sauna, warm coffee, and get our broadcast graded gear ready for afternoon′s shoot.

Latest tidal wave brought me this thought that Dear Mr. President, Mr. Donald Trump ordered Apple company to release at 11-09-2017 this quite latest version of iPhone under trademark of “X” therefore iPhone X. Isn’t this date, when infamous terrorist attack begin at World Trade Center? Isn’t this iPhone capable of future prohibited function? The FACE ID?

Coincidence?

As far as FBI knows protect themselves, with this undercover scanning and tracking people all over the world, somebody went a bit too far.

Something’s very wrong with this information hunt!

Or it was only the wind, which comes with that tidal wave?

The EBU (European Broadcast Union) found that the Canon 1D-C offered “exceptional HD resolution from a full 4K source with very low aliasing, and good colour performance and motion portrayal.”  This means that Canon’s 12,000€ Cinema DSLR can offer high definition broadcast quality and can be used as an a camera on any european television production.

(I had no idea that shooters actually needed to have their cameras approved for use).

This is largely due to the fact that the 1D-C is 4K primarily giving it plenty of  room in post to output to 1080p.  And it will also future proof productions once the 4K broadcast spec is adopted by the EU.

“Bad karma is all around and I’m running out of luck
Next soldier wants my job, I better watch my back”

 

“well well well..just day before birthday I asked myself what makes the shoot work? I guess is not the camera or the lighting or talent. It’s what’s behind it and I don’t mean diroctor of photography or film director. I mean our LUPICKI comunity, the support, the luck thereof, in fact. The whole damn world really. That is the art, the world, the lives. We are just lucky enough to capture a small piece of that and we love what we do.”

We all have a different aspect of our body we’re proud of—is your best asset your feet? If you’ve ever been told you have elegant attractive or photogenic legs, ankles, or toes, a career in foot modeling could be for you.

Having nice-looking appendages is not enough to score a lucrative print or commercial modeling gig; as with any aspect of modeling, a lot of hard work is required. Photoshoots are no walk in the park, and it can be tough going toe-to-toe with potential modeling agents. But if you’re head over heels in love with your feet and think you’ve got the goods, kick back and check out the basics of the feet modeling industry below.

Blemishes or scars may make your feet ineligible.

For the most part, feet models all have high arches, consistently slender feet, and long, thin toes. Their skin is smooth and of clear complexion, both on their feet and the rest of their (usually long, graceful) legs. A quick online search of what models’ feet look like should give you a good idea of the general requirements. If your feet tend to be covered in marks, blemishes, or varicose veins, sorry—they will likely get your modeling career off on the wrong foot.

 

Do your research

Speaking of online searches, models of all types have an intimate understanding of their industry. Stay abreast of trends, study the relationship between feet and the camera in print commercials, and follow the kinds of publications or models who do the work you’d like to do. Practice the kinds of poses you frequently see, and stretch your toes in poses that might express different emotions or actions. Down the line when you’re at a shoot, your hours of obsessively researching foot models will pay off, as you’ll understand what photographers tend to look for.

Protect your feet!

Tread carefully. Models who work with their feet go to great lengths to protect and preserve their money makers. Many walk around in shoes a size or two too big in order to maximize comfort. And although modeling requires staying in impeccable physical shape, most also avoid soccer or any athletic activities that put feet in danger.

 

Remember: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. If you want to be a foot model, you should be an expert in which lotions and tinctures help your feet stay beautiful. Invest in a sugar scrub in order to regularly exfoliate and remove (dreaded!) callouses.

 

Gather photos and keep track of them.

 

Like actors and their headshots, it’s a model’s responsibility to take and keep track of their photographs. They are your calling card, so invest in quality shots by hiring a professional photographer—preferably one with experience with feet. Experiment with different lighting and poses, and avoid too much retouching. (And in any modeling portfolio, even if you’re just in the business of showing off your limbs, include a photo of your face so you can be recognized.)

 

Stay aware of your digital footprint as well. If you have a website that includes photographs of yourself and your body parts, make sure shots of your appendages fit industry standards and look professional. Some working models also include short, simple demo reels demonstrating how their feet move.

Apply to modeling agencies as often as you can.

 

Example: In Amsterdam or New York in particular, there are plenty of modeling agencies looking for talent. Early-career models can reach out to work with multiple agencies and begin developing relationships with agents. Some agencies include departments for specific body parts; don’t be afraid to do lots of research, share your portfolio and résumé, and attend go-sees.

Find a pedicurist you trust—and get pedicures before shoots.

 

If you’re interested in a career modeling feet, chances are you already know the best way to prettify your tootsies. See a trusted pedicurist before you meet with modeling agencies at go-sees or go in for a shoot. If you get to wear polish, pick a color that makes you feel happy and confident!

Practice patience and perseverance.

It’s one small step for a model, one giant leap for model-kind. In pursuing your career as a foot model, stay focused and don’t get discouraged—it’s a competitive industry and success won’t come from putting your feet up and hoping it comes to you. Be patient and keep at it!

 

Truth about cinematography

It’s interesting cos cinematography is such a subjective thing.

Like how I think about it it’s something totally different then you will think about it.
Some people love to show everything, to me, that’s the most boring shit you ever see..
So pay attention but take it with salt of grain maybe?!
So where do you start, what is good cinematography?

To me it’s something that strengthen the story something that tells a story in the images without saying it in words
You should not need dialog with great cinematography

And it should create the moods and the feelings and should create the presence for you as audience to be in the picture and seen with the people that you watching. Like it should become more real with the cinematography, at least that’s what I think
Light is like most important element in movies.

Without good light, I don’t think there’s good cinematography. I think that’s true. When you work with darks, that’s kind of hard, like that’s one of the biggest things that I focus on in my films is capture the right light.
I come from documentary background. Documentary still photos. So then you get used pretty much shoot everything in existence lighting that is there. That kind of makes you adopted to that. So you shoot when right light is there. I usually go out in blue hour or like when sun is setting those type of things. I try to shoot whenever I see pretty light, now I am also in studio so I can light up stuff but otherwise I try to shoot as soon as I see good like, I shoot it and I think you can learn a lot from watching light. Anybody inspired to become cinematographer needs sort of focus on light. Like light is cinematography. You have to focus on like.. you get unique character and all that you need to have unique lighting. It doesn’t mean it’s pretty light. It means it has to be something unique that creates unique atmosphere that is true to story. It could be anything, you know, anything that’s only lid with 1 light it could be 3 light.I don’t know, anything. But sky is the limit I guess.
Another thing is leaving the right stuff out and keeping the right stuff in; for instance you know deciding on perspective is one of the most key things to me. Imagine scenery staged scenery.. I tried to capture the whole environment trying to create the mood through imagery then ..so on later.. as we got up we moving closer and closer to capture intimacy of characters, that’s delivers choice and you have to make it as it happen. That’s why I love documentary cinematography because you really have to be quick to capture those things. And when you doing documentary everything is real not staged! You are experiencing this whole film in reality. It’s really thing for you, for me that’s what you need to capture. Great cinematography captures whatever you feel on set.
On scene everything could turns into interesting prospective, it has to be more intimate. Everything has to be telephoto. everything is close ups, nothing is wide shoots. It such a intimate and fragile moment.
And when you doing comedy you trying to do something totally different.
I didn’t study cinematography
Who fucking study cinematography anyway?!
“Images should be the only pleasing pictorial aesthetic, but projection of the emotions that the character discovering themselves” for sure!

People who just make pretty pictures;
go fuck yourself!
It doesn’t matter, like you making pretty picture?
There’s so many blogs and vlogs out there, they do like a collage of nice pictures & moody music.
It’s same shit in every video!
Please invent yourself!!!
Cinematography is very technical and of course like, images should be pretty in some sense. Like it can be dirty pretty ugly pretty it can be dark pretty.
but
Don’t make just make stuff because it just looks good try to think about story. Everything in cinematography to me has to do with stories.
You cannot make great cinematography if you don’t tell a story. To me you tell a story by not telling everything. You tell a story by not saying things in words. You use the cinematic language. And that’s isn’t just cinematography it’s also audio-visual aspect of everything. So audio, pictures, you know, acting all those things has to come up together, the music. You have to use all those things. Because that is the language. Language isn’t cinematography or spoken words & dialogs. You have to use everything to tell a story.
So if you stop thinking about cinematography

But start thinking about story

Than I think pictures will come for themselves.

With love..

Supercharged by incredible 162th cup of coffee this year.. this crazy idea came up (at some point) how to make photo-shoot just behind the house in cemetery, am talking about night shoot with dimmed lights with local model dressed in white, barefoot with down-looking scenery. Along with clocks as the light pulled tighter spots in cemetery shows brighter and brighter. Boudoir composition may take a place if dark princess would feel comfortable as home.

Thursday – at this stage am pulling out some of the most serious strings in my photography ideas as tomorrow is day “D” with test shoots.

And time flies when you’re having fun, as am sitting on couch sketching the scenery and composition of shoot, freshly baked pizza is making up my mind, while DJ Fawad is about to drop his beats in Arabic dance mix

Right about now as owner of website am doing marketing and I am always focused on power of words, “chroma-key of internet search”, adwords, wordads etc.; and details behind business are pretty filthy and fascinating.

While you have no idea what the hack website is by itself, you can get bigger picture about business model. Essentially people buy videos, individually from the site, the proceeds of which are split between our company and studio.

So evidently people like to watch photography & film-making on internet. Who would knew?

Public opinion is like this: It’s worked out, and as owner he doesn’t actually have to do much work anymore, It’s fully automated, that’s bullshit mates, it’s all about masterminding (for sure you don’t want to be out-runned or pushed aside by competitors). For me it made some kind of sense as money actual cash generating asset requiring little effort beyond the initial build.

 Most interesting of all I found that actually these advice I am giving to someone who maybe want to start up their own website business or business by itself as startup.

Good luck with it. It’s a challenging industry. Things that would take 20 minutes on a normal business can take days in the adult industry. (finding a payment processor, for example)

A restricted site network would be quite a challenge, financially, I think. Policing it could also be pretty difficult.

The most expensive part, for me since I did all of my own design and programming, was getting VISA/MC approval for a high risk account. VISA has a 1000€ annual fee and MC has a 500€ annual fee, at least through my payment processor.

You can make use of European web services to lower costs substantially, but pretty sure there are non!

Up front the first hurdle is convincing Visa or MasterCard to let you accept payments. Still, that’s not even the hardest part. Here’s what it takes to get the site up and running:

If I calculated it in hours spent on it myself, looking at around 3 months, so we’ll say 500 hours. I charge 65€/h if I ever take on freelance clients, so looking at about 32000€ for someone at my rate. I’m expensive because of my extensive experience, so you can probably get it done for less.

It was very difficult in the beginning. Luckily my consultant, the girl who convinced me to start the site, is a studio herself and knows a lot of the top studios. We went after the top studios and offered them better % ratio and it worked. We can now hit 2000 visits per day – A good number of which are sent directly from the studios to purchase on the site or send a tribute.

Most of the business, he said, comes from people buying between a dozen and thirty products per day, and then cash donation — ‘tributes’ — make up the other half of the business.

Here are the technical stats. As he said earlier, the entire operation is automated, with most of the hosting on an our own LUPICKI cloud servers:

The site itself runs on a single server, a VM actually. It runs PHP with CodeIgniter for the framework and MySQL as the database. I make extensive use of CodeIgniter’s caching abilities.

I have an FTP server setup where the usernames and passwords are powered by MySQL. Each studio gets their own FTP login. I have a cronjob that will run every few minutes and pick up files that are finished uploading and send them to LUPCLOUD L3L after gathering some basic meta information.

Once the video is safely on L3L, the studios can complete the meta data, pricing, and choose when the video goes live.

All the video previews and pictures are uploaded to L3L and served through AWS Cloudfront CDN.

That’s about it. Pretty simple.

So if you’ve ever considered getting into the lucrative online business, that’s what you’ve got to handle first.

This feeling doesn’t have to end up closing the laptop straightaway or runaway from the office. In this case, your life has not been living without worrying about a clash of ideas that haunt you every moment of when you’re trying to breathe effortless.

It is no wonder that in such a state you are not in mood going out with friends or for dinner with boyfriend/girlfriend. Is obviously hard to relax when you head is constantly at work flow.

  • Think of what would you do if you get rewarded equally (money, paychecks, etc.,) no matter what work/activity you do.

I don’t believe that if people can have ability to choose a work, everybody would choose to become a CEO or top manager, no I don’t believe that. You have to follow your heart and therefore if you love doing for example hand-made pottery then do it! Don’t dream about becoming Las Vegas Businessman, or Japanese independent criminal lawyer. Just do what you love to do no matter in which state you are in. If you just starting then according to the day-job start slowly than quitting a job and disappointed because things didn’t work-out that fast as you thought, be respectful and thankful for chance to actually create something from nothing, in last century they weren’t so lucky!

  • Go out (right about now) and look around

You see those rushing people? Constantly rushing somewhere on daily basis, you think they are happy? They love what they do? Every other is carrying different load in shape of mortgage, loans, medical problems or problems with relationships anything from family to angry boss. Out there is quantum of not awakened geniuses and some of them don’t even know where they going (what a shame). These people are let’s say in 50 years in pure oblivion, unless they unlock themselves. Start from yourself be more positive, nothing will change if you going to be still complaining about people how bad they are, how selfish they are and what a mess left behind them! If they cannot accept you today, that doesn’t necessarily means they cannot accept you tomorrow!

  • If you love doing something, stick with it at all cost

If you have some hobby you are obviously not alone, everybody has. But they cannot be all over the world at the same time. People are awesome.

  • Go visit nature

A lot of people trying to disconnect from nature just because of modern age, but if you like that or not we are part of the nature anyway. Go for walk to the forest or to the lakeside and the best thoughts come in silence.

  • Do not copy bad habits

If you like to use behavior from closest persons around you, start not doing so, most influential persons are always around you, just have to stick with them. Start seeing things differently since now on!

I have decided to leave my teeny-tiny peaceful island of art, decision has been made probably while I got supercharged by Moet. Basically I have find out there is loads and loads of opportunities and challenges that you have to try or at least you have to have a drive for that. Tomorrow 04-01-2017 I’ll be available for a very last time in person, that might be for some people like “finally” for some it might be like wtf, and for those who understand these crazy sacrificial chess movements it’s absolutely normal. During busy days I found it really difficult to maintain together four companies with limited liability, and supervising our network of digital content incl. digital goods for sale and therefore I am moving to the next level; I have become a part of inner circle now; hiring a very good secretary; and constantly contributing to the clouds.

with love
Luigi

I begin of writing this post again in last minutes, if I can squeeze this year into several lines then it will be a bit of a Dutch year. 
I traveled:

  • Slovakia
  • Czech Republic
  • Russia 
  • Netherlands
  • Democratic republic of Congo
  • Sri Lanka
  • United Arabian Emirates

Drank roughly 765 cups of espresso (+-5)

Had a 84 photo shooting incl. some key people and ambitious  photomodels 

Created 192minutes of digital content in full 4K 60FPS (4:4:4)

And that’s it.

My ancestors they build a pyramids with bare hands and therefore I had to follow the path too. Now between Christmas and New Year Eve I decided to go out and search for a good spot, where I can start the grand building ..so let the mastery begin, or shall we say just digging the past? Right about when I finished a masterpiece in my line of sight I noticed two dogs on loose! dingy dongy freakin’ dogies SSSHHHHIIIIITTTTTTT, probably mentally unstable, so I expect violent reaction if either of them learns the other is already running towards me, anyway they did not damaged my pyramids and got scared by this provisional snowman next to them..

..and now they are available on display somewhere on fleeland.

Coleman company did not paid me to make an review of this product and did not send me this tent for free. I have got this tent for mountain time-lapse film-making.

A lot of people asked me what gear I used for mountain photography and where I stayed, what’s inside of my Deuter Traveller 80+10 backpack. so basically this tent is very lightweight and wind-stable ideal for those, who need to keep their gear weight down. You certainly have to choose this model from weekends gateways to long travels (25+days), the Aravis 3 offers dependable protection from both wind and rain while its handy porch allows you to keep kit organized, even in harsh condition.

“But above everything, drink wines with love. They are like women – different, mysterious, fickle. And each wine has to be taken as woman. This always begin with rejection, done gracefully or rudely according to the woman’s disposition and in the end she will grant herself only to someone, who aspires her taste, soul as well as her entire body. She will belong to the one, who knows how to uncover her with the utmost delicacy.”

It was Saturday night fever, that made me think: about what kind of fuck is this all about???

yep that damn morning changed directions..

So here’s how:

Monday ’till Saturday those forty-hour-per-week warriors showed up at work and got the shit beat of them (fight of thoughts)

  • Make yourself an offer that you can’t refuse, so don’t hesitate and surefire way to get hired.. get spearheaded into kitchen in middle of night whatever, wherever, get inspired, (power of suggestion)

  • Because It’s the principle! Learn when to make a point, don’t fuck about going around, get it straight.

  • Have you ever thought why were the Mobsters in the newspapers so old? They loved what they have done, and therefore never worked a single day in their life. Don’t dream about unreal things, and if one dream is dashed, dream up the another one.

  • Hide your tricks and guns and help the old man across the street – Family values, don’t get into some “I’m something and you are nothing” attitude especially in home in family.

  • Start not taking notes instead start sharpening your memory, otherwise you will end up dumb in lots of yellow sticky notes or even worse digital notes.

  • Don’t end up in the trunk of a car or abandoned in foreign country without nobody & nothing. Avoid office or class politics, basically learn when to shut the fuck up. You don’t have your mouth just for badmouthing.

  • Have you ever thought how can three people keep a secret? Easily only if two are dead!

  • Have do know why Italians cut up pigs and cook them in the greed sauce?

  • It’s always good to go to a funeral as long as it’s not your, mind the power of networking there.

  • Ole blue eyes, why everyone love Sinatra?

  • Start turning garbage into gold, learn when to sniff out opportunity

  • If something’s up, always roll up your sleeves but keep your pants on

  • Even the walls have ears, and therefore never bad-mouth the boss.

  • Did you wash your car or screw it in the muffler? Start practicing your verbal skills

  • If you count on yourself then you’ll never be counted out!

  • Any idea how Lucky Luciano with Tommy-gun became lucky? no? good..then make your own luck, by the age 23 you should know which are your master skills

  • Never forget that the bank of favors pays the highest interest!

  • You know why “The Mr. Chin” wore pajamas to work? No? anyway, power of playing dumb is important in everyday life!

  • Think about the school of hard knocks: get your life experience sorted, learn from own mistakes.

  • Once friend of mine asked me: “Is this phone tapped?” since then on daily basis I always watched what I said.

  • Rather slap your opponent or yourself (to play dumb), if so, you understand and respect the chain of consequences, good.

  • Always go get your own coffee! and sometimes take some for fellas too, if you can master and respect this chain of visual commands without being a sucker then you are rising star!

  • Which one which you rather take? Kill or be killed? Have you thought about denying orders from above?

  • Plato? Didn’t he owned that swingers club? or isn’t he that famous comedian? Always be informed!

  • Where are my fucking money? Paying promptly is the best way to succeed!

  • Shut it down, learn when to keep quiet, and never tip your hand over somebody unless is necessary

  • Think about key to growth, anyhow, to any way.

  • Let them reach the right place, master your patience skills

  • STICK YOUR HANDOUTS UP YOUR A**…., You have to cultivate aggressiveness and master vulgar skills.

  • Learn how to be master of your own fate, not a master of disguises.

And if you’ve done it ’till here.. well.. I am not trying to find nobody else to be..

–  “In ancient Sparta, boys around the age of twelve underwent a peculiar education designed to sharpen their wits and teach them the skills necessary to succeed in a harsh world. In the hills surrounding the militaristic city-state, the boys were underfed to the point of starvation, then sent into town to steal food in order to survive. They would have to be clever and cunning; if caught, they were severely punished. Not for stealing, but for failing.
–  The Spartans believed that a young man who could master the skills of a thief would flourish in life. I don’t advise anyone to become a thief in an effort to excel, but by studying the underlying nature of successful criminals, one can glean many valuable lessons.”

I would like to create and attend a very first meet-up especially on Vlieland where I am working on interesting projects at the moment, I would like to make local guides see this beautiful island on top of Netherlands and make leave impression. There are a lot of businesses incl. restaurants, caffe parlors, bars, camping area and a lot more and they might be experienced differently then in main season. Beautiful locations from harbor to village through forests up to the beach could be explored by eager local guides. As local guides we can share our opinions and ideas, and future plans in guiding, and also I would like to invite everyone who’s going to attend our photo-walk for lunch and refreshing beverages.

Interested attendees can contact me via hosted google mail (info@lupicki.com)

Hows tricks everybody what’s going on..

 

Recently I got again questioned by a friend of mine, Luigi how to get noticed by talent agencies, which are finding girls and boys from Europe for photo-model business.

 

I said basically anyhow, just need to be in right moment in right place, because modeling / photo-modeling agencies are always looking for a new talent, and for an aspiring model, the right agency can make a career.

Signing to a reputed agency can be a gateway to editorial photo shoots that establish model’s portfolios, not to mention catwalk opportunities and advertising campaigns.

 

A goldmine girl can also be lucrative for agencies which make money by taking  a 20% commission of all model earning, while also charging brands an additional 20% of model’s rate for each booking.

 

Therefore if you look into this working structure you realize you are partly working for a agency by earning 1:5 ratio.

Our Intercontinental network offers commission only 10%

(As we are international tax payers for us it means 8% income + 2% tax)

“If, underneath death’s cold wing,
His restless soul should fly away,
Beyond the grasp of fools,
Would meet with the bliss they deny,
So stand for him, kneel for him,
As he lies low in kneaded clay,
Pray for him, who prayed too late,
That he might shine on judgment day.”
