I’m a staff photographer with National Geographic who has shot wildfires for years. I’d like to get the word out about something new we are trying and are reaching out to firefighters and inviting them to share their images on National Geographic’s YourShot.
The web site yourshot.nationalgeographic.com has nearly 500,000 members from 195 countries who’s members have shared over 3 million photos. 13,000 new members join every month.
There are monthly assignments where Nat Geo photographers and editors give feedback and select images for broader viewing.
I’ve attached a flyer promoting a fire season “assignment” that will launch tomorrow, Monday, Aug 4, 2014, and run through the end of 2014 fire season.
I’d like it to be posted around fire camp and maybe mentioned at the morning briefing if you think this is appropriate.
I’d like to share this with other PIO’s far and wide.
