One of the best parts of my career is that I get to go places and see things that are mostly off limits. As part of a story on Maya Religion I got to photograph Naj Tunich Cave in Guatelmala. The cave was a pilgrimage site and ceremonial center for the the classic era Maya. It is such a privilege to see things like this and be able to share the experience with photography.
I've been using Instagram for over a year now and still really like it. Figuring out who to follow is daunting and collected feeds make life easier on the viewer. The @natgeo feed has a great collection of contributing photographers posting their different magazine pictures. 1.7 million people follow it. But did you know those same photographer also post their personal photos to @thephotosociety?
If you love photography it is a great one to follow.
