I am currently traveling in the Middle East. I have spent a little over a month in Jordan learning conversational Arabic. I'm heading to either Cairo for the anti-Morsi protests or to Istanbul. Obviously, I am still learning but I am willing to travel to places other people won't. I am confident in my abilities to meet most assignment requests excluding long range zoom shots above 200mm. I am also able to pay my own expenses if that helps me get a particular assignment. My main rig is a Canon 5D Mark III with a 70-200mm LII 2.8/f lens.
