    Hi Jasmine
    I understand that you are looking for completed photo essays, however, I am in South Africa and would love to work on and submit items in due time. Also close to Mozambique if you do not find anyone with a completed essay. Please feel free to contact me if you do need any assistance with this in the future, although I can’t be of much assistance at present. I am currently a full time photographer and have a passion for exploring our country and also for writing, so it would be a great fit.

    Hi Jasmine,

    I’m sorry, like most people here I don’t have photos of the destinations you need. However, my website is filled with travel photo essays. Some particular recent favourites are New York in August, Innsbruck in late summer, and a recent road trip across the middle of the USA where I only took photos from inside the moving car with some pretty stunning results. The links for all three are posted below.

    I have a lot of work on my website, an absolute passion for travel photo essays and would love the opportunity to work with you. Your magazine is a great idea.

The travel blog is our personal story but we could put together a tighter/more focused photo essay on a specified location.
    South Amercia photos are found in the June-Sept 2010 archives.
    Out galleries are arranged by continent.

    Thanks very much for your time.

    The comment that is online is not complete as I stumble on my iPhone. I did complete it and send it with links but it says that it waits for moderation. Just in case here’s a few links:

    Many others galleries are on the website or in preparation. The book Humani Afrika (short stories from my wandering trough Africa) is currently in french but I am working on an english version.

    A few concerns:
    I just downloaded Travel by Handstand app on my ipad, and it is very difficult to figure out. I tried to find the Pamir in Pictures that you referenced and I can’t find it. The app is so weird to use, its not intuitive at all. It shuts down a lot when trying to look at pictures. The swiping of photos from left to right lacks in response time, its just not very fluid at all.

    I recently completed a feature on Xinjiang, China’s colorful western border region. Inhabited largely by a Turkic, Muslim minority, this desert region is an exotic midpoint for the famed ‘Silk Road’ trade route. I shot the piece on an iphone, which allowed for some wonderfully candid moments. Here is a link:

    If you interested in exotic sports, I have a feature on Buzkashi, the quintessential Central Asian winter sport, a sort of proto-polo played on horseback with a goat carcass:

    @Andrew, thanks for letting me know about the app crashing, I’ll inform the team. The pamir story is in the ‘exclusives’ tab. Thanks for the feedback, please do keep it coming.

    @Jessica, so great to hear from you! I love your work and hope to use more of it in the future.

    @Paul, we do not have a set space rate policy yet but our licensing fees are in line with industry standards (granted, they are evolving) for iPad and digital publishing. But I think we have paid very fair licensing fees thus far.

    Dear Jasmine,
    Kindly passing you a nice story I shot end of last year on the Pacific coast of Colombia. The lead is about a young surfer champion with great capacities who can’t be recognized due to lack of money to travel, but it could be used to show the absolute beauty of this part of the world still very mysterious and unknown, but with a fantastic touristic potential.
    Here below are the main points of the story, which may guide you watching the pics at

    Of course I got more context images to submit in case you’d be interested.

    Main points :

    Location : Wonderful and magical Pacific coast of Colombia. A place famous for watching humpback whales during 4 months of the year, with a great natural beauty that results in a enormous touristic potential for the future.

    PJ is a 15 years old surfer. According to local surfers he has the ability to come out first and country’s best if he had the chance to participate to a national contest.

    But he can’t travel, the place he lives is very remote without roads. Any kind of trip is very expensive for his family, who live out of fishing.

    He started surfing aged 7 on a wooden board he made by himself. Since then, he spends his time in the water as much as he can.

    Two years ago, Nemo, the owner of a local hostel and surfer himself, organized a surf competition. First prize was a real board, which PJ won.

    His brother aged 8 also wants to be a surfer. PJ teaches him and made him a wooden board, explaining him how to do it.

    The mother is keen about her children to surf, but the father, a poor fisherman that PJ often helps in his work, would like him to be more serious at school.

    School is more than one hour to go, same to come back. PJ must cross three rivers throwing into the sea. If the tide is high, the rivers get deep and with a lots of current. PJ must have two sets of clothes when he gets to school – one for walking and swimming across the rivers while holding his school bag above his head, and another to attend.

    The Pacific coast is the place from where cocaine shipments leave to close central america, Mexico, or the US on fast boat. Colombian army is present in the area – that maintains security locally, but the traffic goes on. Many of the young friends of PJ are into trafficking. Recently, two of them accepted an offer to drive a loaded boat to Costa Rica, and disappeared. Traffickers often execute people working as mules for them, so they don’t have to pay them and they keep their mouth shut. PJ also had the same offer but refused, he just wants to surf and keep living with his dream – to become a real surf champion and have the opportunity to travel so he can show its strength.

    Dear Jasmine,

    The link I have posted above does not take you to directly to Shanghai, but close. Perhaps it will be of interest.

    I photographed along the course of the Grand Canal which links Beijing to Hangzhou (which is close to Shanghai). It is over 1000 miles long and has been an economic, and cultural engine for millennia. The first stretch was built in 460 B.C.

    Syria 2007 – images made during a Fulbright journey visiting many of the locations now in question ,

    And an ongoing project in southern Italy: Termini – a working class town which overlooks Naples, Capri and the Amalfi caost. Think contrasts: Truly local-locals living in sight of the historic icon of wealth and power-Capri, a symbol of life’s fragility-Vesuvius and the daily trials of a reliance on the tourist trade-Amalfi. I’ll be returning there this May for more..

    Not really sure if it fits your demographic, but I just posted images of Fly Fishing on Christmas Island in the Pacific.
    Great looking magazine! :-)

    Hi Jasmine,
    Below is a link to a recent story in Ladakh with a brief story outline.
    Best, Kevin

    Ladakh is one of the most remote regions in the world. Located in the northern most state in India, Jammu & Kashmir, high in the Himalayas. With its magnificent mountain scenery and smiling people its clear of snow for only several months a year. The landscape is dotted with Buddhist Monasteries and prayer flags.

    If you’re interested in images from Penang, Malaysia, here’s a gallery from a recent trip there.

    I also did an extensive street portrait project in Penang documenting the multicultural and religious diversity of the city.

    Regarding cities on your request list, I’ve just returned from Singapore and will have a gallery up shortly. And I’ll be in Shanghai April 21st – 27th.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Thank you everyone for your comments. I wanted to add a bit more information about what we are looking for:

    I’m not just looking for a collection of images from a place. I need something with a story behind it. Perhaps it’s a community of fisherman in a beautiful setting off the coast of spain, or a place in Finland where they weave textiles in an abandoned 100 year old school house (I’m making stuff up).

    Point is, it’s not enough for it to be just a collection of images from one place. Rather, the images need to be tied together with some theme or story.

    Or, they need to be conceptually so unique that the concept or photographic method (wet plate, iphone, etc) is what ties it together.

    I hope this helps

    My travel essay is called Summer in the South of France.

    The South of France, pastel colored buildings, medieval historic centers, chateaus, and beautiful and dramatic cliffs overlooking the aqua blue of the Mediterranean Sea. The soft light has been a favorite of artists for years. The French Riviera, from the golden sands of St. Tropez to the markets of Nice, is a playground for the rich and famous, with beautiful weather and great food. Michelle’s story, shot over 2 weeks, captures the essence of the South of France.

    Thanks !

    The Road to Ruins

    The Central American countries of Belize and Guatemala share a porous border along one of the largest protected rainforests in the Americas. Nestled in the thick rainforests of Belize’s Chiquibul National Park and Guatemala’s Maya Biosphere Reserve are the remains of some of the grandest cities ever built by the Mayan civilization. Visiting these remote Maya ruins is an adventure, given their remote location and access by rough dirt roads traversing the jungle. Here, a collection of images from a recent expedition into the heart of the jungle. Sometimes it’s more about the journey than the destination, especially when rougher-than-expected roads prevent you from seeing everything you had planned.

    Hi Jasmine,

    I am a freelance features writer, photographer, doctor and adventure cyclist. My work has appeared in Bicycle Traveler magazine, 20 Something Travel and Positive News. I have pieces pending in Travelati, Sidetracked and Vagabundo.

    I have a photo essay for your consideration. I have recently been riding through the Andes and have cycled across the Chile – Argentine border ten times on my journey north through South America, choosing the highest and most remote mountain passes on offer. Most of the following photos were taken above 4000 metres altitude –

    Best regards

    I’m going to be in Singapore from May 25 through June 7, followed by four days in Bangkok.

    The street food in Singapore is legendary. The photo essay I’m proposing is a day in the life of a street food vendor, also known as a hawker. The story will start at the crack of dawn as the hawker prepares for his busy day–buying fresh ingredients from the wet market, prepping his mise en place, followed by the lunch rush, and finally the cleaning up. Most of these hawkers have been cooking behind a hot stove in a cramped kitchen for decades, often earning $1 to $2 per dish served. It’ll provide a fascinating look into this time-honored, yet back-breaking craft.

    Below are links to Singapore photos I shot for Bon Appetit magazine:

    Hello Jasmine!

    I visited Cuba as a still photographer on a documentary about a family who left during the revolution and were persuaded by their daughters to return and show them their family roots. During that time I got an intimate view of life in Cuba and self-published a book titled “CUBA Y CUBANS”. It’s been featured on blogs like LENSCRATCH, was awarded “BLURB’s Book of the Month” and have exhibited in gallery shows in the US. Several images from the book were also recently featured in Australian fine art photography magazine “TAKE”.

    You can get a complete preview of the book at:

    & on my website:

    I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    Thank you,

    The first is a collection of beautiful images of the coast of the south western tip of Western Australia- Augusta, Busselton etc.
    Another is a photo essay about the Sierra Leone Marathon, hosted by Street Child of Sierra Leone. The images comprise the build up, the event, projects the charity works on, a slum visit and some beautiful landscape scenery.

    I have work available to view at and
    My website is currently under construction.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a great job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera.
    Outstanding Blog!
