It would be better to set up your own tourist photography setup there and keep the profits for yourself. but youd have to get permission and/or a business permit for it I think.

Yeah... a vendor's licence or something... might be worth it during tourist season. I bet Rob could make a good living doing something like that @ Niagara Falls...

LOL you be quiet. Although on several occasions people have approached me to have their picture taken (because I look like a photographer). I should start charging for it

Youd prob need a gimmick to make money at this over there. The prob would be to either mail the print to them or have a notebook/printer est up to print it on the spot. Perhaps have a sign....... have camera, will shoot. :0).

I bet you could set up a profitable business doing that there... you would have to get a vendors licence, I would assume, though...
