    I have a photoshoot concept in my head and would like to shoot it in a hotel or motel room...

    Anybody work at one that could help me on a discount for the room and get my gear snuck in?

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I gots boost
    Why would you have to "sneak" gear in...? I worked at a hotel for a few years, and I know I never monitored what people brought into their rooms aside from animals...

    not Debbie... her name is Krista...

    i once tried to shoot at this boutique hotel in W. Hollywood...

    they saw me and my assistant rolling in cases and lighting and they sent security to the room as we started shooting, asked for a permit, then kicked us out...

    i could probably sneak the gear in if i cut down on the lighting, but most of the hotels in Hollywood want $1,000 commercial usage fee for the room

    yah, a bit different in L.A.

    i think with so many small production companies, the hotels here got wise to the money they could make...

    i once got kicked off the sidewalk by the police for shooting without a permit...

    we had no lighting whatsoever... it was just me, the model, and the makeup artist standing on the sidewalk in an industrial area... no other traffic... we were the only pedestrians for blocks...

    it was on a sunday so the warehouses were all closed...

    this damn city wants $$$
