I think I’m not alone here in saying that if somebody told me that I could pick any job in the world I would say straight of the bat
I would love to be a National Geographic photographer!! It’s just my dream job as it combines travel and photography..
Well, sometimes we don’t realise how hard it is to capture those stunning images. Today, in honor of Wes Skiles, a National Geographic’s photographer who died on the job in 2010, The Photo Society, a website run by some of his fellow co-workers, speaks up about the dangers these amazing photographers encountered while on assignment for the magazine.
There have been several deaths before and many many incidents. Acid dripping caves, vipers in camera bags, getting lost in the Andes, flesh eating parasites, being buried in an avalanche just to name a few..
here you can find a full list..
on a second note..I’ll keep shooting weddings!!
but so much respect goes out there to the ones who dare doing such an amazing and yet dangerous job
