Grand Prize and Nature Winner: The Ice Bear- A polar bear peers up from beneath the melting sea ice on Hudson Bay as the setting midnight sun glows red from the smoke of distant fires during a record-breaking spell of hot weather.
During the month of November, National Geographic magazine invited photographers from around the world to submit photos in three categories: People, Places and Nature. We asked Senior Photo Editor Susan Welchman, and National Geographic contributing photographers Stephanie Sinclair and Ed Kashi to judge this year’s photo contest at the Society’s headquarters in Washington, DC, on December 9th. Imagine a darkened room with images projected on a huge screen, and almost total silence except for the ‘yeas’ and ‘nays’ of the judges and the occasional discussion over specific photos.
Ultimately, the judges unanimously agreed the Grand Prize should be awarded to Paul Souders for his image of a polar bear lurking beneath melting sea ice in Hudson Bay, Canada. Places Winner: Long Road to Daybreak- Realizing this old town (Laocheng, means old town in Chinese) would soon be transformed into a new town through the speedy economic growth in China and perhaps lose its raw beauty in no time, I was pleased to capture this working mother carrying her child in her basket walking through the thick mist in a very early foggy morning, 2012. Honorable Mention Nature: Crows Nest- The crows that live in Tokyo use clothes hangers to make nests. Honorable Mention Nature: Indian Rhino, Canadian Winter- An Indian rhinoceros, far from home and stuck inside with late-winter blues at the Toronto zoo.
Honorable Mention Nature: Flying Egrets- On a good day in the field, a birder might see flock of birds. Honorable Mention Places: Cows And Kites- I was driving along the beach highway when I noticed the bulls sunbathing on the empty beach.
Honorable Mention Places: Graveyard- I cannot describe the eerie feeling I had when I walked in on this scene. Honorable Mention People: Arabic in Gambia- Arabic born in one of the biggest city in the World, New York. Honorable Mention People: Life Along The Polluted River- A boy plays with balloons by Buriganga River as smoke emits from a dump yard during sunset in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Honorable Mention People: Laurentiu- This picture is a part of the series of my work eFrumoasai.

When growing up on Staten Island, Jeff Orlowski turned the backyard shed into a bouldering wall, making endless loops on climbing grips hea€™d fastened. Orlowski joined the project right after finishing his anthropology degree at Stanford, where hea€™d also taken filmmaking classes.
Prior to their first outing, Balog spent months in his garage working out a time-lapse system that could endure for years unattended. Balog, Orlowski, engineer Adam LeWinter, and field assistant Svavar Jonatansson started with the Solheim Glacier in Iceland. The documentary shows the team returning six months latera€”to utter failure: cameras felled by falling rocks, cables eaten through by fox, Plexiglas sandblasted til opaque.

So did switching to a higher resolution (1080p) Sony PMW-EX1 with SxS Pro memory cards after the first year, used for the remaining two years in the field. In 2009, Orlowski officially started down the documentary feature path after convincing Balog of its feasibility. Orlowski interweaves shots of sheer beauty throughout Chasing Icea€”not just Baloga€™s stills, but his own video images as well, which took full advantage of the exquisite lighting conditions and perfect camera positions that Balog sought out. Data management and camera upkeep were the toughest part of that trip, consuming two to three hours every night. Coming from still photography, Orlowski was surprised by the film worlda€™s approach to packing gear.
Les annees 2010 et 2011 etaient deja un superbe cru pour le concours photo du national geographic.

Back on the highway with his 1,600-pound camera in tow, Tim Samaras hunts for the elusive shot.
China—On his way to second place in a bee-wearing contest in Hunan Province, a contestant disappears beneath a carpet of insects lured by a queen bee in a cage. Spiritual WaysWith the reverence afforded a sacred being, Oglala men fell a specially chosen cottonwood tree and carry it to the center of a Sun Dance circle.
Faces shielded from the sun, digging tools in hand, Tibetan families can search all day for the larvae, called yartsa gunbu.
Guided by the laptop weather map reflected in his window, Tim Samaras rushes to catch up to a dying thunderstorm.
India—Trees infused with sunlight dwarf an early morning visitor to the rain forest on Havelock Island. A ten-year-old girl's gloved hand holds the tiny, dirt-covered biological curiosity: Yartsa gunbu is a combination of moth larva (caterpillar) and parasitic fungus. A ground fire ignited by a lightning storm near Elephant Butte, New Mexico, paints the horizon with brown smoke. The Manitoba population of polar bears, the southernmost in the world, is particularly threatened by a warming climate and reduced sea ice. As a leader in capturing our world through brilliant imagery, National Geographic sets the standard for photographic excellence.
We received more than 7,000 entries from over 150 countries, with amateur and professional photographers across the globe participating. Several hours later, after multiple rounds of editing, the finalists became clear and the real debate began.
In such a large city, there are few trees, so the natural materials that crows need to make their nests are scarce. I followed a massive storm front several 100 kilometers hoping to capture something special but this blew my mind. First you need to find out everything you can about that field, then you need to figure out who the decision-makers are. Once they start to see a photographer’s name over and over associated with good work in different media, then they might reach out to those individuals and ask if they have any good story ideas.
The nature around us is preserved with misstries and i would love to unlock it…when i was in search of a combanion, with honour i understood the best one to nurish my talent is national geography.
Thank you for the advises, I want to reach to environment, thats why i make photography as a part of my life. By the way – this article gives the exact info for every aspiring photographers, and encourage them to make better works in this hope.
This made me to develop interest in photography, filming most especially unusual behaviour of small animals in my compound such as rabbit,cat and turkeys. If he wasna€™t there or climbing in Central Park, hea€™d be in the basement darkroom, printing photographs under the tutelage of his father, a teacher and semi-professional photographer. Nor did he imagine that his debuta€”originally intended to be a nonpolitical profile of an obsessed photographera€”would make such a convincing case in the climate-change debate. Trained as a geomorphologist, this Colorado-based National Geographic photographer began his career leery of global warming claims. A friend had introduced him to Baloga€™s photography, then to the photographer himself, and in March 2007, Orlowski began volunteering. They immediately realized Baloga€™s mounting systema€”Boden tripods bolted down and stabilized with guy wiresa€”wouldna€™t work. It avoided the pitfall of standard intervalometers, which never switch off and thus constantly drain power. A scientist on one expedition disassembled the whole system and measured the electrical pathways within the circuit board. No handwarmers were necessary, though a pen was still required to press buttons, Orlowskia€™s fingers being buried inside threes layers of mitten and glove. Orlowski also includes his own shorter time-lapses: ice circling in the current, northern lights, stars wheeling overhead.
The first was captured at Stone Glacier in Greenland, when they were still unloading gear from the helicopter. Greenlanda€™s most accessible glacier, for instance, entailed flights from Colorado to the East Coast to Copenhagen to Kangerlussuaq to Ilulissat, then a helicopter to base camp.

The constellation of skyscrapers in Canary Wharf's financial district is a world within that world, built from docklands abandoned in the 1960s, when shipping moved downriver to deeper water. He hopes to be the first to photograph the split-second event that triggers a lightning strike. Rajan, an Asian elephant retired from logging, takes the stroll as part of his daily routine and occasionally swims in the Andaman Sea. Tim Samaras and his crew chased the slow-moving storm cell until they ran out of road, and now can only watch as it moves on. Professional photographers and amateur photo enthusiasts from over 150 countries submitted more than 7000 entries.
As a result, the crows occasionally take hangers from the people who live in apartments nearby, and carefully assemble them into nests.
I had to park my car a fair distance away and that meant a long walk along the beach in 35-degree heat.

The surreal milky green water is a natural phenomenon caused by electromagnetic activity from the lightning hitting the waters surface. As she’s 13 years old, her Father decides to send her to her Family in a small town named Bajakunda. A year ago her mother, Marie, decided to move to Denmark in search of an easier life and to give her daughter everything that she never had, but even though the two countries are tied historically, the two cultures are very different and they have no Danish friends or any strong connections to Denmark. At the same time you must spend all your time taking pictures so that when you finally find the right person to talk to, you have the work to back up your ideas.
Iam so much committed, what advise could you give me to expand and eventually got engaged by NG.Anticipating your positive response, please. There followed years of real hard slog, projects, books and finally I sold some pics to them. But Chasing Ice includes time-lapse images of our disappearing glaciers that are so irrefutable even skeptics cana€™t shrug them off. Balog had to customize everything else, from the solar-panel system that kept the batteries going, to the housing, built from Pelican cases outfitted with a Plexiglas window and weather hood. The ground was too soft to keep the shot stable over the years, especially in the face of Icelanda€™s capricious weather and wind.
Balog found a scientist to design and build a intervalometer that would turn off at night based on the cameraa€™s GPS coordinates and between hourly daytime shots. At this stage, he began conducting interviews with participants and scientists using a Sony PMW-F3 with Sony prime lenses, either the 50mm (T2) or 85mm (T2), or else a Nikon adaptor with his own lenses. An ice fjord five miles wide, ita€™s one of the worlda€™s most productive glaciers and launched the iceberg that sank the Titanic.
One camera body gets its own large case with lots of padding, and that gets tossed around [in transit]. The EX1 fit right in, and that whole thing fit into the main compartment of my hiking pack.
There was no rain where I was and not much wind either but in the distance the sky was charged and angry subjecting its wrath over the graveyard of dead trees in this normally very dry lakebed. In Denmark, Greenlanders are seen as second-class citizens, drunks and socially challenged. And as student of history of arts i am documenting my research through words , visuals, dimensions, surfaces etc. He pitched a larger story to National Geographic, and it was while shooting a€?The Big Thaw,a€? one of the magazinea€™s most popular cover stories, that he started to think that time-lapse photography would be the best way to record these deflating glaciers. In the photo world, you have a backpack with your camera body and dozens of lenses, all with divider foam.
Far easier to navigate are the tight grids of farm roads crisscrossing the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles. The competition was judged on creativity and photographic quality by a panel of experts comprising of National Geographic magazine Senior Photo Editor Susan Welchman; and documentary photographers Stephanie Sinclair and Ed Kashi. When I got closer to them I was careful not to spook them so I crawled on my stomach on the hot sand to get a good picture of them. This photo is part of an on-going series that is trying to show a different side to the greenlandish minority in Denmark.
There are scientists who did do time-lapse 20, 30 years ago, but only for a couple months in the summer and only one photograph a day. After a trip to the nearest hardware store 50 miles away, they affixed a wooden frame with tripod head to a cliff wall. Ultimately, National Geographic engineers (those behind the a€?critter camsa€™) devised a simpler, more universal timer that used a light sensor to determine if there was enough light to shoot, then powered down the whole system between shots. The peninsulaa€”five football fields longa€”was starting to crack and roll on its side, like an ocean linera€“sized log.
Lenses, cameras, and hard drives were hand-carried onto planes in North Face expedition duffle bags.
I had extra compartments for all the climbing gear, camera accessories, batteries, and extra layers of clothes and goggles. I want to ask the qualification criteria and steps to become a National Geographic photographer. My answer to the question is 1) times have changed and Nat Geo should not be seen at _the_ holy grail of photography and 2) do your own thing, photograph what you feel strongly about and don’t try to fit into a mould. Its mission was to deploy 30 cameras on 18 glaciers in Greenland, Iceland, Alaska, and Montana and create a three-year time-lapse.
The problem was when youa€™re out in the field and a timer isna€™t working, you cana€™t just grab one from Alaska and use it in Iceland, because theya€™re programmed differently. La girafe qui tente d’echapper aux griffes du predateur, et le felin qui doit tuer pour manger… Chapeau bas les artistes!!!! Arabic is the only person in this small town whit an official American Passport, everybody dream about that one but she can?t use it anymore because of family tradition.
The lack of a legal address gave them administrative problems and made it hardly impossible for them to find a decent job. So for the first two years, I was following James shooting video just for the sake of documentation and not really knowing what would come of it.
And when youa€™re out in the field and the screen stops working and you dona€™t know why, thata€™s the biggest problem.
Ia€™m getting beaten up with terrible wind and snow, trying to peek in and see, a€?Is it on?
They form a happy, warm and close family, despite the constant uncertainty in which they live. I just want to know the steps to apply for National Geographic as a photographer for their magazines & other creative projects. When you hit stop, it saves the last x-minutes of footage, based on the card.a€? Orlowski had about 50 minutes in the loop. Because glacial calving can start so slowly and imperceptibly and the cracking sound takes multiple seconds to reach the viewer, ita€™s virtually impossible to catch the beginning of a calving event based on onea€™s eyes or ears.
