Inle Lake Fishermen in National Geographic Traveler Magazine

I just received the latest issue of the National Geographic Traveler magazine and was excited to see one of my photographs and a short essay on the back page.

Short story behind the publication: Kathie Gartrell, Managing Editor – Interactive, at Traveler had contacted me in October asking me to send in a caption to accompany an image that I had submitted to the My Shot section of the National Geographic website.  She said that they were considering it as a photo of the week on the Traveler website.  I was very excited and I submitted a brief essay right away.  Then at the end of October, I received an email from Ben Fitch, a Photo Intern at Traveler.  He told me that they had just finished the layout for the January/February issue and they needed a higher resolution of the image.  The photo did run as a photo of the week in November.  And has been printed in the current issue of Traveler.  Not sure how it went from a possible photo of the week to a full page image and text in the magazine but I’m certainly very happy.  Although I haven’t met Kathie or Ben, I would like to thank them for the help they had in publishing this image.

Here is a scan of the page from the magazine with the picture.

Now I’ve set my sights on being sent by National Geographic to photograph a story somewhere in this wonderful, crazy world.
