National Geographic Editor Pamela Chen Shares Her Journey Into Photography

In the short video above Senior National Geographic Editor Pamela Chen gives us a quick run-through of what inspired her photo career.

From an adorable image of her holding a camera up to her head the wrong way as a toddler, to the image that made it ‘click’ in her mind that photography was the route she wanted to take in life, she takes us on an inspirational three and a half minute journey.

Note: the short video is sponsored by Microsoft OneDrive, so it does come across as a bit of a commercial, but in no way does that detract from her story. Give it a watch and get some inspiration as you head into the weekend.
