Gratuity charges, optional or mandatory in the US

04 March 2014 - 02:37 AM

I'm booked on to a trip, that leaves out of Florida. Speaking to friends i have heard that a 15-20% tip can be the norm for customer service in the US. 15%-20% on a $3000 trip is a hell of a lot of money to me when taking the total trip cost (international airfare and hotels) into account. Are these fee's a hidden cost in US culture that i should have budgeted for or is acceptable to just give what i can afford?

 

Here in the UK if someone asked  for a specific amount for a tip, i'd be offended, tell them to stop being so cheeky and probably leave less. 


Tiger beach, March.

I'm looking at joining a  tiger/hammerhead trip in the last week of March. I was just wondering if you guys could share some information, is this is a good time of year to do this trip? Statistically, is it a good time for tiger sightings and whats the weather usually like at this time of year?


which strobes for gh2 and future setup

30 November 2013 - 12:37 PM

Hi, I have been shooting video for the last couple of years with a GH2 in a Nauticam housing.
I'm looking at moving over to the darkside and shooting some stills on my next trip. I am looking for recommendations on which strobes to use. I want to purchase something that im going to be able to use when I upgrade my camera in the next 18 months/2 years.

Where I'm completely up to speed with video equipment, I know nothing about stills. Just looking for a push in the right direction from you guys...
