The seaside city Positano, on Italy’s Amalfi coast, is a lure for pro photographers, but now, notes PetaPixel, the picturesque town has just introduced a hefty €1,000 (about $1,162) “tax” for commercial photography. Videographers will have to pay €2,000 (about $2,300) for commercial work. That’s about 10 times as much as the $100+ photo permit charged by Laguna Beach, California. Positano authorities are also banning drone use in the city, eliminating aerial projects altogether, adds DP Review.
