It is with great pleasure to announce that I was given an award for Overall Excellence in Photography from the North American Travel Journalists Association for the work that I’ve done for National Geographic Traveler Magazine. Yippee! This came as quite a surprise. There are many fine photographers in the line-up as well, including Justin Guariglia, among others. The magazine did very well across the board with awards in Travel Journalism, Travel Journalism Web Sites, Travel Blogs, and other categories. Here is the press release. Booya!
