Work hands on with Jad Davenport.
Jad’s career in photojournalism began as a documentary photographer who started developing his talent for image storytelling while covering more than a dozen wars. His knack for capturing the essence of an experience have defined his career, and Jad is a full time travel photographer with an open assignment with National Geographic Creative.
Jad’s abilities have garnered no less than four Lowell Thomas awards, which is one of the most respected awards in the field.
His work has frequently appeared in many of the world’s elite publications including Newsweek, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Men’s Journal, Audubon, Sierra, Coastal Living, and many more while also appearing in esteemed galleries, including the Smithsonian.
His work has taken him to some 160 countries in some of the wildest places on earth, from pho-tographing the mountain gorillas in the Congo war zone to the black pearl farms in Tahiti – and, of course, the polar bears of Churchill Wild.
Jad specializes in the art of capturing images that take you back to the time and place and elicit the emotions which make an experience profound. He provided the first digital cover and inside story for National Geographic Adventure Magazine. He is also adept at using any of the variety of digital tools now available for the modern traveler who is not always able to travel with the latest and greatest photographic lenses and equipment.
With Jad’s direction, you will be able to capture your journey into the Arctic like never before, whether using an iPhone, point-and-shoot, DSLR or mirrorless camera. Jad’s focus on the sub-ject and composition make the art of photojournalism accessible to all, regardless of your pre-sent level of photographic sophistication.
