NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PHOTOGRAPHER Documentary/Natural History Photography Expedition Leader/Workshop Producer-Instructor
20 years ago, my first workshop, teaching alongside Mauricio Handler an underwater photography class. Leaving for the first dive of the day, I had one foot on the dock and one in the boat pushing away., looked up at the TV that was on a second floor bar, and saw the news that changed the world. 11 days before I had left Kodak to embark on my photography business, yes Raul Touzon Photography was founded Sept 1, 2001, 20 years ago. Obviously, like the planes, my whole business plans came crashing down that day. Today, with this iconic picture by Robert Clark, we remember the 3000 souls that went to heaven on that horrific day. @aquaterrafilms,  #september11,  #9/11

THE PALOUSE. I have embarked on a one-year endeavor helping a good friend to shoot and produce a book about the Palouse region in Washington State. This is a part of the US that I had never visited before, so first order of business was to develop a solid location/shoot list of sites that will be photographed during the four seasons. Some of these images are just reference shots to get “the feel” of the place. @thephotosociety,  #thephotosociety,  #natgeotravel, @natgeotravel,  #natgeoadventure, @natgeoadventure, @nikonusa,  #nikonusa, @gettyimagescreative,  #gettyimagescreative,  #NatGeo, @natgeo, @natgeointhefield,  #natgeointhefield,  #picoftheday,  #photooftheday,  #photography,  #travelphotography,  #photographer,  #photo,  #photographyworkshop,  #photographylovers,  #nikonphotography,  #MomentoNatGeo, @natgeolatam,  #nationalgeographic,  #yourshotphotographer,  #expedition,  #palouse
