Combat Photography

I've always been a bit fascinated by combat photography - in a lot of ways it has the biggest risks and rewards of any kind of photography. The rewards do tend to be more of a "change the world" sense than a financial sense, but a single shot can have a very real effect on how people perceive a war.

Michael Yon, who's a blogger who spends a lot of time in Iraq, has a little camera report up. He's been steadily moving from crap gear upscale. He's taken some amazing shots - you might recognize one or two of them which are pretty famous. I've liked his photography for a while - I actually have one of his prints.

Anyway, if you're interested in seeing some cool shots and/or reading about the needs of a photographer in that situation check it out. I'll update this when he has part II up.

Update: Sure enought, part II is up.
