INSTAGRAM – BENEFIT OR BURDEN TO A TOURISM PHOTOGRAPHER?

A week ago, I threw myself to trialling Instagram to see if I could divine a measurable benefit to my business which might warrant the attention and effort and – I’m happy to report having climbed to a modest 133 followers in 13 posts – it does (though I concede I could still be in the infatuation stage and I’ve got a long way to go).
This is what I have concluded:  

BULA – THE SINGING FIJIANS

New Caledonia had its gymnasts, Solomon Islands had its pan-pipe players, Vanuatu had its sorcerers and PNG had its colourful bilas but Fiji ….well, Fiji just sat down and sang – and the crowd fell silent and in awe.

BEAUTIFUL PORTRAIT FROM THE SOLOMON ISLANDS

I had a fleeting pang of concern when I captured this photograph of a bare-breasted, 14 year old Guadalcanal girl who was performing at the Melanesian Cultural Festival in the Solomon Islands (try taking this photograph back home and see where it gets you).
