PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR

Blaine Harrington

Blaine Harrington is a travel/location photographer, based in Metro Denver (Colorado, USA). He is the 2005 and 2006 SATW Travel Photographer of the Year. He has worked on assignment for most major news, business and travel magazines. With over forty years in business (including working in Amsterdam, New York, Paris and Zurich), Harrington has expert knowledge of Europe, as well as most regions of the world.

Personal philosophy: IT HELPS TO HAVE A ZEST FOR LIFE IN THIS BUSINESS! Many of the exciting things I’ve photographed, I’ve also done. Such as, running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain; jumping off the highest bungee jump in the world in Queenstown, New Zealand; ski mountaineering the ‘Haute Route’ in the Alps; hiking the Milford Track in New Zealand and the Tour du Mont Blanc in Europe; plunging in the icy water with the Polar Bear Club on New Year’s Day in Boulder, Colorado; scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and off Cozumel in Mexico. I’ve photographed everything from icebreakers in Arctic Finland to Turkish Baths in Istanbul to stock exchanges in Singapore and Hong Kong to tango dancing in Buenos Aires. My goal for life: go everywhere, meet everyone, try everything!
