The difference between a tourist and a local: A tourist comes for a day. A local comes for a day and never leaves.
Pro Tip: Don't be a tourist. Stay awhile. And then come back for another visit if you like. So far, here's our "Must See Again" list: Iceland, the Monarchs in Mexico, Fes Morocco, Sedona Arizona, Grand Tetons, and Romania. Oh yeah, and on our next trips we just print a little book with pictures from the last trip and tell them how much you love their country. Better yet, print them and give them away. Plus, knowing those awesome photography spots takes lots of time and getting to know your community (not something that can usually be accomplished in one trip).
So if you're a photographer trying to market for travel, come for a visit, stay awhile, and come back. Best marketing advice I've got.
