    Nat Geo. Hands down. If it wasn't an issue of making a living, i will shoot for free! (but probably not good enough....but hey! dreams are free!)

    You forgot Chien Chi-Chiang (or something like it) - the Taiwanese dude who did the Chinatown story for NG

    well, either asian photogs can't make the mark, or nat geo has yet to discover asian talent?

    still, it would be my dream to even shoot one pic for them... and get published! haha... even if i have to do it pro bono!

    How about shooting for local mags and newspapers?
    sometimes i think the newspaper guys are too slow..
    for an example, we usually see the burnt buildings instead of some fire. its either the newpaper guys are too slow or our firemen are doing a really good job! = )
    haha...

    how about coverage of war events?

    the reason they are slow is that there are not enough competition in the newspapers industry. besides, they are not willing to pay for story leads or picture leads. they offered a Samsung handphone as a prize and subject it to a draw. it is pathetic.

    Nah... I think we Asians just see photography differently from the Ang-mohs. Its just unfortunate that we have to follow their standards in order to get into publications like NG.

    Its probably like comparing a Renaissance painting to a Chinese painting. The Westerners like their paintings better, of course, while we Easterners like ours better.

    Maybe when we Asians finally have our own definition of what makes good photography, they'll then be the ones to *wish* they were shooting for Asian publications

    Hmmm... but then again, photography is a western art form. It started with them so we really have some catching up to do...

    Well he himself might be Asian, but he got into a western publication, didn't he?

    For all we know, probably the only definition of "what makes good photography" is the western one. What is the eastern definition? Maybe there isn't any yet...

    i personally don't think there is an "asian" or "western" photography. as long as the photographer captures the essence of the culture, then the photograph is successful. e.g. jodi cobb (ang moh woman nat geo photog) has shot a fantastic series about the hidden life of the geisha in japan.
