In 2001, Aaron Huey entered the professional photo world as an assistant to Steve McCurry in New York City. At the end of his assistantship Huey left New York, was dropped off at the Pacific Ocean and walked 3,349 miles across America to Coney Island with his dog Cosmo, one camera and one lens.

Huey will speak about his experience photographing on his solo Walk Across America and discuss the influence that carried over from that event into the rest of his career in photojournalism.

The varied topics Huey has photographed include Taliban ambushes and drug eradication in Afghanistan, antiquities smuggling in Mali, lost temples in Burma and circling sharks in French Polynesia (without a cage). He is currently working on a book and a film based on his five years photographing on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

Before photography Huey studied stone sculpture in Slovakia. In his second life Huey is a rock-climbing photographer and has authored 7 books on rock-climbing.

Huey is a frequent contributor to the National Geographic magazines, the Smithsonian Magazine, Harper's Bazaar, The New Yorker, The New York Times and many more in the foreign press. Two years ago Huey was awarded a National Geographic Expedition Council Grant to hitchhike across Siberia. He was named to PDN's 30 in 2007 and has won numerous prizes in NPPA's BOP and POYi.

He is a Masthead Contributing photographer for National Geographic Traveler and lives in Seattle, WA in between adventures.
