Hanging out with National Geographic

October 30, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

With over 300,000 members and 1.6 million photos posted on the National Geographic Your Shot web site, I would like to think that I stand out just a little bit with my photos, but I know statistically that's kind of hard to do.  Well... I'll call it luck, or general "good fortune", but I was contacted by NG  recently about those very pictures.  I was asked to be one of three Your Shot contributors to participate in a Google+ Hangout to discuss one of the recent photo assignments, Explore Our Changing World.  I was more than happy to take a day off of work to be on a webcast with two senior photo editors and Corey Richards, one of their finest adventure photographers.  To be discussing photography and hearing about what goes into a NG magazine assignment was humbling, fascinating and exciting all at the same time.  Plus... I never lost that tickle at the back of my mind that said  "don't say something stupid, this is going on youtube  for forever, you know".  I think it came out OK.  If you'd like to check it out...
