I love traveling with photographers. I have so much respect for them .. and not just for what you think.
Sure they are great craftsman. Sure they have a creative eye. Sure they seem so knowledgeable about technology.
Honestly. The respect comes from their ability to be so happy to shoot and give up turns to get in the right position for the shot, after watching everyone else get fresh lines. Then get more stoked to show you the photo afterward.
Mind you… they get their fair share of fresh tracks themselves. One look at this photo from Selkirk Wilderness you can see why they love their jobs.
