David Wawrzynski Well ... that pretty much sums it up. You've embraced a career for yourself that is in lock-step with media tactic - There's big money in breaking news that showcases human suffering ... i.e. war, famine, blight, disease, disaster, etc. etc. I think it's so us fat dumb and happy type can sit in the comfort of our recliners, eating our sweets laden with sugar milled from 3rd world countries, and think to ourselves: "I'm glad that isn't me." Good luck in your continued photojournalism. Stay safe! on 2010-07-13, at 08:21:12
Renan Rosa Nice to read your humanitarian vision David.
Just can't imagine Micah sitting in a comfortable chair delighting a sweet candy, and looking out the window of the third world, grateful to be a lucky man who does not undergo any of these problems. I see a photographer working hard for his art and doing it very well. on 2010-07-13, at 15:11:38
Photoburst is a photo of the day contest focusing on Travel Photography.
Everyday (or almost), we publish the best image uploaded by our contributors so you can get your daily fix of outstanding travel pictures from around the world.
Since 2008 we have been blessed to feature the work of both professional and keen travellers, whose talent and vision are Photoburst's core of the matter. We suggest visiting the Archive and Hall of Fame sections before submitting your work, for a glimpse at what we are looking for.
We are currently accepting guest editorship proposals, as we strongly believe they are a great way of further involving photographers with Photoburst and our audience (please check the Editors section). Interested? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All photographs contained on this website remain the property of their authors, as indicated over each photograph. Photographs may not be downloaded, reproduced, copied, projected or used in any way without express written permission of their authors.
... as long as there's an advanced Maths course in a (not necessarily) nearby country. He's known for pushing friends into the most expensive photographic equipment... several family inheritances have been wasted, but they often acknowledge his smart advices. Owner of a clinical eye, he can spot perfection amidst chaos as easily as a small imperfection on a perfect photo. He's also an occasional stork stalker and, above all, a caring father of two beautiful children. Gastão's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... give us a hand. He's our Computer Science genius and is currently addicted to photographing cats. He's a natural born optimist who makes a joke out of anything... don't mess with his Toyota though. Eventually, his stocks will rise from death and he'll invest in livestock and vineyards. He's got highly trained fingers either playing the piano or shortcutting photoshop. We hope he'll stick around after marrying his college sweetheart. In the mean time, he'll dissect every submitted photograph into binary code. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... would only be true if reading travel, geographic and surfing books/magazines accounted some mileage. He checks his e-mail every 2 minutes and he's often seen going cold-turkey when offline. Still divided between several walks of life, he strongly believes in Murphy's law "If anything can go wrong, it will". Photography plays a huge role in his life, at least judging by his conversation topics. Gray hair will eventually take the better of him. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
