Susan Seubert, based in Portland, OR and Maui, Hawaii, has her fine travel photography featured on the cover and interior pages of the latest National Geographic Traveler:
Susan describes the article best:
The story is called “Authentic San Francisco.” It’s a part of a series of stories the magazine has been doing about classic cities with an emphasis on what makes the locations “authentic.” It was a fantastic assignment. I love San Francisco so it was great to spend two weeks covering all aspects of the city. I’ve shot many cover stories, but this is my first cover for this magazine. Working with National Geographic Traveler is always fantastic. It’s an incredibly professional organization and the photo editors really support you in the field, wether it’s technical issues (in the Caribbean I had a Hasselblad back fail and the assistant photo editor helped me track down a replacement) or helping you in the door to a difficult location (they always give you a letter of introduction.)
More about Susan:
We (myself and my husband, a retired photo gallerist) live part time in Maui because my husband is a surfer and also, let’s face it, Hawaii is glorious. We live about 15 minutes away from one of the best surfing spots in the world. (I have also just started surfing. It’s very fun!) We generally spend Spring and Fall in Hawaii to escape Oregon, which tends to be dark and dreary those times of the year. We also try to go once in January for the whales. A large portion of the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary is literally steps from our front door. It’s easy to spend the day watching them frolic in the ocean.
Since my business is portable, I am able to take assignments in either place at any time. (I keep a mini-office there).
