    I really do hope this is the case, Zaren

    But why is it that there are still so few Asian photographers in NG? Aren't they good enough for them? I'd rather think its because "Western eyes prefer Western photos", instead of Asian photographers not being good enougn. Heck, guys like Tay Kay Chin are even better in my book...

    i like his pano shots!
    speaking of pano, some ppl would say that Ken Duncan is even better... but i don't think that's what Nat Geo is looking for.
    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    hmmm... never seen Ken Duncan's pano shots

    You know what, shooting for NG seems like an awfully hard goal. Maybe I should go for VS instead?

    I'd really like to do photojournalism, especially war photography, about the people stuck in the war, civilians and all. I believe it really gets in the hearts of all people, whether it be ang mor or asian. We all feel the same way about certain things and events, even though we come from culturally different backgrounds. Coming from an international school, i can experience the difference between a cacophony of culures and I can tell u that yes, the westerners have different cultures and approaches to life and events to us asians. The fact is that all of us will feel the same feeling of watching a child being abandoned in the middle of the battle field right? (There are always exceptions where some ignorant people will laugh at that sort of event.)
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    (NG does accept asians' works, you can try submitting a proposal for budget to shoot any subjects which might be of interest to them, who knows they might buy your ideas, anyone wants to work on this )

    I'd be happy if my pics appeared in local Mags like Her World, 8 days or LIME (which I have not read before).
