I was just emailed this question from a client for an upcoming photo shoot I will be working:

Jon, do you need any special arrangements for the luncheon on 6/27? – Let me know – Thanks,
(name withheld to protect the innocent)

Here was my reply:

I will need the following items:

  1. All gloss-black trailer with a single white star on the door, no name.
  2. The trailer should have a 12 speaker Bose sound system and all my songs loaded onto the player, and good lighting inside
  3. Ice box full of Desani water, not Ice Mountain
  4. Fresh Lipton Iced Tea made with the Desani bottled water every hour with two ice cubes per glass, no more, no less
  5. A Chia Pet – type doesn’t matter
  6. One apple picked at the start of the apple picking season – I’ll know

  8. 60 packages of 3 or 30 packages of 6 golf balls and one 5-iron (titanium)
  9. Stainless steel bucket
  10. Astroturf with embedded golf tee
  11. 12-foot ladder
  12. 10 Ray-ban men’s sunglasses styles to choose from

I think it’s a pretty good list! Important Life question, “What would your Rockstar request list look like?”

What do you think?
