Andy Williams with Kazakh eagle hunter Buybelot and his eagle Anna
As the photographer for GeekWire, I have many unique chances to capture the goings-on of the Seattle tech community. When I get bored of all the presentations and talking heads, I like to traipse around the globe on photo workshops lead by Andy Williams, looking for epic and unusual shots.
I recently spent a couple weeks in far-western Mongolia, following along with nomadic herders from the area who are constantly on the move in search of greener pastures and capturing their ancient practice of hunting with golden eagles.

Andy is both a great photographer and educator, so I sat down with him while we were in Ulaanbaatar to record a special episode of the GeekWire podcast where he shares some photography tips and tricks with our listeners.
Our photography picks of the week included:
DJI Osmo Pocket handheld camera
DJI Mavic 2 drone
You can see more of Andy’s work on his website or learn more about the photo workshops that he leads.
