A trip to Las Vegas, Nevada can be a little overwhelming. It a fantastic destination for many reasons. Street photography can be amazing as you meet all sort of people, but the lights everywhere and the frenetic life also make it a city of choice for this kind of photography. It could also be an original place for architectural photography. Not only Las Vegas offers a unique scenery but it is also an awesome reason for vacationing and have fun. There are tons of casinos, countless poker rooms, and more theaters and stages than you can keep track of. There are also shopping districts, award-winning restaurants, themed clubs, trendy bars, and miscellaneous entertaining attractions everywhere you look. Throw in the fact that it’s all quite literally cloaked in flashing lights, and a sensory overload is perfectly understandable.
So how are you supposed to know how to spend your time? Some would say that it’s almost best “not” to know. The best way to experience Las Vegas can be to let yourself get swept up in it. Nevertheless, it can’t hurt to have a few goals in mind if you get to visit this infamous hub of entertainment. So here we’ll look at some of the best options in popular categories.

Savannah, Georgia has been on my “must see” list of places to visit in the US for many years now. I have driven the lengthy 24 hours from Toronto to Miami countless times. However, throughout the years I have never driven through the more picturesque eastern side of Georgia, I have always gone through Atlanta because its been said it’s safer when the weather conditions are unpredictable during the winter months. This time, I made sure to stop in Savannah on the drive back from Tampa, Florida.
The majority of my time away, this trip, I chose to use my Sony A7 for several reasons. I adore the quality and sharpness of the images. Especially when the shooting conditions are ideal as far as lighting and there is no moisture in the air. The light weightiness of the camera makes it quite painless to lug around than a DSLR and not break my back. And lastly I really want to get familiar with my Sony like I am with the Canon 70D in different scenarios.
iLHP is very proud to say that this is the first detailed interview of this magnificent, poetic and graceful ballet dancer. He used to practice ballet and modern dance routines on the streets of Paris, where tourists would often photograph and film him. This gave him the idea of capturing portraits of himself and start a 365 day photo project showing his elegant, gravity-defying dance moves in spectacular snapshots.
“Whatever you’re doing, someone else probably already did it better than you. But that doesn’t mean that you cannot work to be better than them.”
iLHP: Thank you very much Mickael for taking the time to answer our questions! Please, tell us a bit about yourself.
As a former motocross rider, I could only share a bit of my passion here through photography. Instead of showing you some of my own portfolio pictures, I thought I’d introduce you to one of the best professional photographers in this field. And one of the reasons I chose him was because he works for several big motocross magazines and pro-teams to cover the US outdoor championship and the world championship too.
Charloux mostly uses a Canon 5D MarkIII but he also owns a 1D and a 7D.
