Saturday Short

Today, Joel Sartore provides a sometimes amusing look at his life as a National Geographic photographer. A contributor to the magazine for more than two decades, Sartore, who lives in Nebraska and travels all over the world, also is an author (Let's Be Reasonable, RARE: Portraits of American's Endangered Species, Photographing Your Family, Nebraska: Under a Big Red Sky, among others), speaker, and teacher.

I loved this! Thanks so much for posting it, Maureen.

Did he say he takes 30,000 photos a year--with only 3-4 keepers? These were all wonderful.

This was truly fun. Thank you.

Maureen, how fun to find this here. Joel was one of Julia's first students at the University of Nebraska. They've been friends ever since. He was the first guest instructor at The Julia Dean Photo Workshops 13 years ago and gave a slide show there last year on his endangered species project. We saw him in Lincoln last Thanksgiving. Julia will be delighted to see this.
