Footprint on the beach today. Waiting for storm Alberto.


An osprey carries its fresh catch into the storm just now, from my balcony at my beach place on the Gulf of Mexico. Shot with iPhone or the fish — and the osprey — would have been bigger! As the saying goes, the best camera is the one you have with you. @thephotosociety @natgeo


Women’s History Month. I found the origin of The Old Boys Club! West Virginia 1976. #womenshistorymonth #oldboysclub @natgeo @thephotosociety


The incomparable Ann Curry @anncurry conducted a profoundly moving interview with former Boko Haram child brides Ya Kaka and Hausa last night at the Too Young to Wed gala in New York. The girls were awarded for their brave journey from survivors to advocates. A beautiful and emotional way to celebrate International Women’s Day! Stephanie Sinclair, @stephsinclairpix, photographer and founder of Too Young to Wed, organized the fundraiser which auctioned the work of many women photographers, including @MaggieSteber @JodiCobbphoto @erikalarsen888 @lynseyaddario @andreabruce @photospice @deannefitzmaurice @habjouqa @ljohnphoto @kirstenluce @katieorlinksy @newshatavakolian @amytoensing @stufankjian @amivitale @victoriawill @dzalcman @tasneemalsultana

Tonight! Meet former Boko Haram abductees Hauwa and Ya Kaka at Too Young to Wed's Inaugural Gala in New York City. These brave girls will be interviewed live on stage by legendary journalist Ann Curry about their experiences and the thousands of other girls in Nigeria who remain kidnapped and remain forcibly wed to militants. Acclaimed actress and TYTW supporter Julianne Nicholson (I, Tonya) hosts the evening and there will be incredible performances by Broadway's Stephanie Block and others. Can’t attend? Then celebrate International Women’s Day by bidding on gorgeous fine art photographs by the world’s most accomplished female photojournalists.

She now wants to change the lives of her young subjects and she has recruited some of the best female photographers of our generation to help. We all have donated artwork to raise funds for this effort.Please go to the link in my bio to support young women forced to marry while they were still children. #Follow these female photographers to see how they are helping end underage marriage: @StephSinclairPix @cristinamittermeier @MaggieSteber @JodiCobbphoto @erikalarsen888 @lynseyaddario @andreabruce @photospice @deannefitzmaurice @habjouqa @ljohnphoto @kirstenluce @katieorlinksy @newshatavakolian @amytoensing @stufankjian @amivitale @victoriawill @dzalcman @tasneemalsultana

Botswana, 2011. Celebrating World Wildlife Day today. I usually photograph world cultures and social issues, but I love being in the wild and seeing these beauties so close. @natgeo @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #botswana


The Olympics are drawing to a close, but have given wonderful insights into the lives and traditions of the people of South Korea. A few years ago, I was commissioned to photograph impressions of the capital, Seoul, through all four seasons. I found a fascinating mix of enduring traditions, futuristic vision and a delightful eccentricity. 1. Child at Jogyesa Temple during a festival.
2. Department stores at Dongdaemun.
3. Businessmen at Gwanghwamun Square.
4. Waiting at bus stop on Gangnam Boulevard.

Snakes From A Plane...scenes flying in to Phoenix AZ yesterday for my NG Live presentation tonight. Arizona friends! Please join me in Wickenburg at the Del E. Webb Center for Performing Arts tonight at 7:30. The show is about my long strange trip for decades as a National Geographic staff photographer. Hope to see you there! @natgeo @thephotosociety


Boring everyday life. Coming back from picking up my car at repair shop (nice and shiny black—thanks for polishing it), dropping off laundry (in the heart of historic Georgetown, Washington DC.) Reflections of the buildings on the hood of my car. #everyday #errands @thephotosociety @natgeo


Photography legends @argonautphoto @amivitale @jimmy_chin They can’t help themselves....typical @natgeo photo seminar behavior....when one photographer pulls out a camera, all hell breaks loose...lunch at the #natgeophotoseminar


Somewhere in the Pacific Islands, there is a beautiful bay with a huge sandbar that only reveals itself at very low tide and only is accessible by boat. Local residents wait for the perfect moment when the tides, the setting sun, and the end of the holiday season align in perfect harmony, and sail in secret with their exhausted Christmas trees on the bows to burn in a massive bonfire as darkness falls. When the tides reclaim the sandbar, all traces of the boats, trees, celebration and holiday are erased, and no one but the participants have any idea of the beauty and magic of the evening.

Happy New Year to you all, and here's wishing you a year of beauty and magic and celebration.
