A National Geographic photographer will accompany each workshop departure to share photographic techniques, knowledge, and insights. Listed below are some of the photographers and the departure date(s) they will be joining.
A National Geographic staff photographer since 1990, Mark Thiessen has published numerous feature stories and covers for National Geographic magazine and other Society publications on subjects ranging from Peruvian mummies to Egyptian archaeologists to Russian smokejumpers. He recently documented film director and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence James Cameron's dive to the ocean's deepest location at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Mark's photographs for the July 2008 National Geographic cover story “Under Fire: Why the West Is Burning” earned first-place recognition by Pictures of the Year International. Mark also directs the National Geographic photo studio, and was featured in Out There, a series aired on the National Geographic Channel.
As the longtime photo editor for National Geographic Traveler magazine, Dan Westergren was responsible for the magazine’s photographic vision, which has earned the publication numerous awards for photography. He's been lucky to photograph amazing places such as the summit of Mont Blanc and the North Pole, but often his subjects are just the neighborhood dogs or his kids in his hometown of Washington, D.C. Dan is an experienced teacher, having led workshops for National Geographic Expeditions in Washington, D.C., Santa Fe, Tuscany, Baja California, and the Galápagos Islands.
