National Geographic Photo Contest

Always wonderful to get a nice message about one’s work, but when it comes from National Geographic magazine, it truly becomes special!

“Hi Edmond — Thanks for entering the 2019 National Geographic Travel Photo Contest! Your photo was selected as one of our editors’ favorite submissions”. 

It’s Their Future. Put It To The People March. Official figures put the numbers at the anti Brexit march at over one million. The demonstration, marched in central London calling for another EU referendum. The demo ends in Parliament Square. London, UK. March 23, 2019. Photo: Edmond Terakopian

To have a look at the work, please visit the People’s section in the Galleries, to see the images chosen by the editors for the photo contest.

The photograph was made on a Panasonic S1R and the S24-105mm lens. The raw image was converted to a DNG file using Adobe’s Raw Converter (as Lightroom hadn’t yet released support for the S Series, which is has done since). The Raw DNG file was then processed in Lightroom and finished in Alienskin’s Exposure X4, on an Apple Mac Pro using calibrated Eizo CG monitors.

So You Want To Be A National Geographic Photographer

Randy Olson; Adapting To The Assignment

It’s perhaps the dream job for most photographers; to be on assignment for the “Geographic”. It most certainly is one of mine. However, perhaps we don’t fully appreciate the lengths their commissioned photographers go to, to make the amazing images that grace the pages of the magazine.

Photographer Randy Olson shows how a job in Easter Island involved normal photography, astro photography, underwater photography and perhaps the most challenging of all, aerial photography using a kite, an Apple MacBook Air and an Apple iPad.

The Sense Of Sight

A fascinating look at how National Geographic Magazine photographer Joe McNally shoots a story called The Sense of Sight and how the editing process of the 1200 rolls of film takes place, including all the various editorial meetings which result in the 40 page magazine story.
