Egyptian-born Tewfic El-Sawy is best known on the internet as The Travel Photographer. Now residing in New York, he’s a freelance photographer who specializes in documenting endangered cultures and traditional life ways of Asia, Latin America and Africa. What’s perhaps most interesting about El-Sawy is that he invites others to join his photo expeditions on a referral/friend basis. He then shares the experiences on the blog, like a recent trip to Theyyams of Malabar, going over the hotels, the route, what worked and what didn’t and how he’d do it differently next time.  El-Sawy also shares lots of great links to other work that interests him on his blog, like a WSJ photo of a burqa-clad woman walking in an old Kabul bazaar, or The Boston Globe’s Scenes From Pakistan.  He shares insight on how the shot was probably taken and any experience he’s had with that area.  It’s an amazing resource for any travel photographer, or anyone else who needs some inspiration.
