Preserving those "Kodak" travel moments, Treasure Coast tourism updates, and the Deep Horizon Oil disaster

Vacations, whether a cruise to Alaska, bareboating in the Caribbean, a trip to Europe or a stay-cation close to home, are all memorable moments in time that we want to capture in photos.  Often, Talkin' Tourism has heard disappointment from friends and family when the trip photos are finally viewed once back home.  Whether you pursue photography as a serious hobby or are the consummate amateur, this week Talkin' Tourism on Florida’s Treasure Coast will help you solve that problem.  

Guests this coming show include award-winning photographer and fine art printer Thomas Winter, who will share some very simple secrets for better photos. Whether you shoot with your iPhone, or a “state of the art” Nikon, you will not want to miss Tom's photo tips. Some of the issues we'll cover will include....Should you insure your camera when going abroad? How do you prove to U.S. Customs on the return that you didn't buy the camera overseas?  What are the basics of composition?  This and more from Mr. Winter.

How is the summer visitor season going on the Treasure CoastRozeta Maboubi, the executive director of the Martin County, Florida Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Charlotte Lombard, the tourism coordinator of the St. Lucie County, Florida Tourist Development Council, will let listeners and stakeholders know if we are making progress in this tough economy.

The Deep Horizon Oil Disaster has been on everyone’s mind since the event took place April 20, 2010.  The Gulf Coast region and the Florida Panhandle have taken the brunt of the burden, but how is the rest of Florida being affected?  Have Treasure Coast preparations evolved as time marches forward? Gary Roderick from the Martin County Department of Environmental Services and a representative from St. Lucie County Public Services will be in the studio for Friday's show to share the latest.
