In the Spring of Things – A Seasonal Trip to Prague

April, May and June are ideal for visiting Prague, one of Europe’s — indeed, the world’s — most beautiful cities.

A Weekend of Luxury in Las Vegas at the Aria Resort

I think I wrote about this back in South Africa, but I’ll mention it again: being a travel journalist is funny.  One day you’re out camping and living on baked beans on cup-o-noodles, and then next day you’re thrust into the lap of luxury at a beautiful resort eating Kobe beef.  My latest visit to Las Vegas definitely fits into the later category.  We were absolutely pampered by our stay at the beautiful Aria Resort...

The Blurring Lines Between Commerical and Editorial Photography with Images from Antelope Canyon

Just before heading to Antelope Canyon, I found out that I would need a permit if I wanted to shoot commercial imagery within the canyon.  And well I do sell some commercial images via various stock agents and a couple small clients, I went back and forth between deciding whether I should get a permit or not.  Eventually, I called them and asked what their definition of commercial use was.  They told me, any sort of video filming that...
