Dan Westergren, the senior photo editor of National Geographic Traveler Magazine, has named his ten favorite images that were published in the magazine in 2012. I am very proud to be included in this selection of photographs! Last summer, I was assigned to photograph two of the ten Travelers of the Year for the magazine. Both of the people happened to be in Honolulu, a quick, direct flight from my home town of Portland. I shoot regularly in Hawaii because I’m based there for four months out of the year. It was fun and challenging to try and create images that were not only interesting, but spoke to the identity of both nominees. I blogged about the shoot in a previous post which you can read here. Dan chose to select the image I made of Theron Humphrey while on assignment for the magazine for inclusion in the Ten Best Traveler Photos of 2012. Thank you Dan and National Geographic Traveler for this outstanding honor! You can see all ten pictures and Dan’s comments by clicking on the image below.
