Great photos are made on all kinds of cameras — some the kind anyone can buy, some a little more boutique, and others still heavily modified by people with a gift for technical wizardry. National Geographic, always a great source of images, recently released a wonderful short film acknowledging the contributions of one of their longtime camera technicians. He’s a humble, soft-spoken man named Kenji Yamaguchi. Please take just a few minutes of your day to appreciate the part he’s played in some of the photographs you’ve seen in the Geographic over the last three decades.
