Dan Westergren Director of Photography National Geographic Travel spoke to a packed crowd at the November 6th ASPP DC/South event at Fotoweek DC.

Dan shared some of his favorite images that have been published in National Geographic Traveler Magazine over the years and also provided the audience with insight into what made these images so special. Dan also shared two assignments he shot for the magazine including a trip up the Matterhorn and a trip to the North Pole.

Some of the themes he talked about were:

– Show the history and present connecting
– How are we different how are we the same?
– Don’t just show me what it looks like, show me what it feels like to be there

The event was moderated by Larry Levin a local ASPP photographer and educator
