08/31/06: Common Sense Travel Tip

Common Sense Travel Tip

If you are a working pro photographer or part-time weekend warrior and you travel by air for your photography business, this tip will help you. Do not put your photography business cards or anything associated with your photo business on your luggage tag. This includes checked and carry-on baggage. Even if you think you will have control of your luggage at all times, you never know when an opportunistic thief might be lurking in an airport, taxi stand or hotel lobby. Also, if you happen to have camera manufacturer logos on your checked luggage or carry-on bags...leave those for the car trips. The last thing you need when traveling for a photo job is to have your gear (or worse, your clean underwear!) stolen from you. Be careful out there!

Yea! Good tip! Also, put a Canadian flag on there instead of U.S. flag!

That's sooo funny DJ! Our flight arrived tonight at the same time as one from Honolulu...couldn't believe all the pineapples at the baggage claim (I only swiped a few).

Did see a Nikon case going around the carousel...wondering if it would have been any use to anyone... (j/k Holritzs and Nudds...and any other Nikon shooters!) ;)
