Gary Arndt – Photographer of the Week

IM1_9831-EditHe has been named the 2014 SATW Travel Photographer of the Year. Usually these award recipients are talents that photograph for prestigious publications like National Geographic. But this artist set himself apart from some of the best travel photographers in the world. How? He was the first blogger to win this award, his work has never appeared in print, he is self taught and he’s never read a book in the subject of photography. So today, we stand and applaud travel photographer, Gary Arndt.

Gary is an award winning blogger and travel photographer who has been traveling around the world non-stop since 2007.

His travels have taken him to over 140 countries and territories and has earned membership in the eliteTravelers Century Club. He has also visited over 250 UNESCO World Heritage sites and all 50 US states.

His blog “Everything Everywhere” is widely considered one of the most popular travel blogs in the world. In 2010 Time Magazine named it one of the Top 25 Blogs on the Internet and it earned a Gold Medal in the Travel Blog category. Not only has he won awards for excellence in social media but he also is the co-host of an award winning weekly podcast that covers travel industry news.

Gary is a regular contributor to American Forces Radio and has appeared in the New York Times, CNN, BBC, The Atlantic, Outside Magazine and many other newspapers around the world.

Gary’s Favorite Gear:

“My favorite gear is a Nikon D300s and an 18-200mm VR lens. With that combo I’m able to travel around with world with very little weight and be able to shoot most things. I also carry a 12-24mm lens and a 50mm f/1.4. I occasionally will rent larger lenses if I’m shooting wildlife.”

Gary’s Advice:

“My advice is to be brutally honest with yourself. People tend to be satisfied with their images because they are their images. Always be looking for ways to improve and never be satisfied. My photography education has been one long iterative process of improving my photos and finding new ways to take better images.”
