editorial photographer Susan Seubert shoots Washington D.C. for National Geographic Traveler

In a previous post, I linked to the online web gallery of images from the story about Washington D.C. in National Geographic Traveler.  Since I was in Maui, I was unable to scan the tear-sheets from the story until now, back home in my Portland, Oregon office.  I was thrilled to see that they published a 10 page spread.  Needless to say, shooting Washington D.C. for National Geographic Traveler was a daunting task given that it is the headquarters for the National Geographic Society and I felt that all eyes were upon me as I approached the story.  However I was in good hands.  My editor accompanied me on many of the locations, which was very much fun and made shooting the story a fantastic experience.  You can read the back story in the magazine.  As usual, it was a long shoot and I made over 6000 images so there are plenty of outtakes.  I’ve posted a few of them here on my Photoshelter Stock site, if you’d like to see more.  If you don’t subscribe to National Geographic Traveler, I highly recommend that you do as it is full of great information and, of course, good pictures. 🙂

All the images were shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, a Canon 5D, Canon 24-105 IS USM, Canon 50mm compact macro, Canon 70-200 f2.8 L IS USM, Canon 16-35mm, or a Hasselblad with 80mm, 120mm, 50mm or 40mm lenses.  The digital files were processed using Adobe’s Lightroom and the film is all Kodak 160VC.
