A portrait of a Kuna Indian woman from the San Blas islands of Panama. An archipelago consisting of approximately 365 islands, of which only 49 are inhabited by the Kuna. They are an indigenous people who were the first group in Latin America to gain indigenous autonomy. Since well before Columbus sailed these waters in 1502, the preservation of their identity has been extremely important and they make tenacious efforts to preserve their traditional ways of life that consist of sailing, fishing and manufacturing of traditional clothing like you see here. In all my travels there are few places that fight to preserve their traditional ways of life and do it fairly successfully. The Kuna is one of them. @natgeocreative@gitzoinspires#fromthearchive#travel#portrait#panama

Hands down the coolest looking dugout canoe I have ever seen. I swam up to this
Hands down the coolest looking dugout canoe I have ever seen. I swam up to this young Bajau sea gypsy boy to say hi as he waited for his father to come up for air while spearfishing. The Bajau Laut sea gypsies of the Celebes Sea are some of the last sea-faring gypsies on the planet and are a fascinating people. They are not only known for living at sea full time but also for their extraordinary biological adaptations of being able to see underwater and having developed larger spleens, similar to those found in marine mammals that help them dive at greater depths. The relationship they have with the ocean is so profound that they not only rely on it for survival but have become part of it. With rising sea levels, dwindling fish stocks and increasing displacement they are on the front lines of the impacts of climate change and it is sad to see their traditional ways and identities under threat. @gitzoinspires@sea_legacy@leica_camera@leicacamerausa#bajau#seagypsies

In a rapidly changing world I am fascinated by places that have been seemingly unchanged for centuries. This stone vessel tannery in Fez, Morocco is the oldest tannery in the world and dates back at least nine centuries. It is one of the most fascinating places I have seen. This year I’m honored to be one of the judges for the @worldnomads Travel Photography Scholarship. We are choosing one aspiring photographer to go on a 10 day all expense paid assignment to Morocco to capture the colorful nation's people, culture and landscapes like the one seen here. Get more info and apply now by following the link in my bio. Applications close soon…October 11, 2018. Please share if you know someone who might be interested. #worldnomads#travel#morocco

When you’re stuck in the middle of the worst desert sandstorm of your life where the blowing winds turn the sand into a torture device that starts to shred your skin, the last thing you want to do is pull out your camera and take a photo. One of the few things I’ve learned along the way is that it is those moments that need to be documented the most. @natgeocreative@gitzoinspires@leica_camera@leicacamerausa#sahara

Comparing whose is bigger during a recent 2,500km crossing of the Indian subcontinent in a auto-rickshaw with an engine the size of your lawn mower that breaks down more than the average teenager;) We had parked our auto rickshaw on the side of the road or more likely ran out of gas and these guys pulled up behind us to take a pee break. When I asked them for a photo they weren’t quite sure what I was doing but when we pushed ours next to theirs they started to laugh and were happy to be in he photo. They were so proud of their truck. It was 1000’s of mile of stress, uncertainty, continuous problem solving and an never ending supply of unpredictable moments of joy and chaos but it was the moments with the locals that made it priceless. @gitzoinspires#adventure#india#thisiswhatmyvacationslooklike

They say that moving water is one of the 3 most mesmerizing things to the human eye. I’d have to agree. Do you know what the other 2 are...without googling it;)? @gitzoinspires@natgeocreative#paragliding#atlanticocean

An impressive view from my hotel room in Lijiang, China. The Jade Dragon Snow Mo
An impressive view from my hotel room in Lijiang, China. The Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (Yulong Mountain) is the southernmost glacier in the Northern Hemisphere. Consisting of 13 peaks, Shanzidou is the highest with an altitude of 5,600 meters (18,360 feet). The mountain range stretches 35 kilometers from north to south and 15 kilometers from west to east. Looking from Lijiang Old Town in the south, the snow-covered and fog-enlaced mountain resembles a giant jade dragon lying in the clouds, hence the name. Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is a sanctuary for rare animals and wild plants. One fourth of all plant species in China can be found here. Shot while on assignment for @aman#china#yunnanprovince

Finding unique angles is a big part of photography. I remember this day well. I was on a paragliding expedition and was on top of a mountain in a very arid, dry landscape. All that surrounded me was dry sage brush and rocks. I was at a loss of how to make some of my images more interesting. I decided to use what was around me and lied down using the rocks to frame the paraglider as he flew by. This is the resulting image and one of the tips I talk about in a recent article I wrote for @worldnomads on how how to take better adventure photographs.
