About Michael Yamashita

Michael Yamashita is a 30-year award-winning veteran of National Geographic and has photographed a vast range of topics and locations, most notably in Asia. He has traipsed with camels across the Taklimakan Desert, scaled peaks in Tibet, and journeyed the length of the Great Wall. He has published more than 30 National Geographic magazine features, as well as 10 books. He also has two documentary films to his credit, Marco Polo: The China Mystery Revealed and Treasure Fleet: The Adventures of Zheng He. His most recent book, Shangri-La: Along the Tea Road to Lhasa, took him to the far reaches of western China and the Himalayas to capture the fast-disappearing ancient culture of Tibet. Mr. Yamashita has taught at major photo workshops and art centers, including the Maine Media Workshops, Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, Tuscany Photo Workshop, and Palm Beach Photographic Centre. He also has conducted hands-on workshops in such far-flung locales as Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore, Taiwan, and China. His work is online at http://www.michaelyamashita.com
