My name is Jeff Heimsath and I am a senior editor, on Nat Geo’s audience development team. I help manage Nat Geo’s TikTok account and all five of Nat Geo's editorial Instagram accounts that collectively reach over 250 million followers, including @natgeoadventure. Previously, I was a photo editor on Nat Geo’s Travel desk. Prior to National Geographic, I worked as a photojournalist in Texas and a photo editor at an educational publishing company in Chicago. I'm a graduate of the University of Texas in Austin.
Great photography always comes down to storytelling. Adventure photography is no different. Strong adventure photos need to transport us into the moment and show us something we’ve never seen before.
