Sarah Leen

Director of Photography
National Geographic Magazine, Washington D.C., USA
Sarah Leen is the Director of Photography for the National Geographic magazine. For nearly 20 years prior she worked as a freelance photographer for NGM until she joined the staff as a Senior Photo Editor in 2004. Sarah has won numerous awards for both photography and editing from the Pictures of the Year competition and the World Press Photo Awards.

Leen is interested in view mostly documentary work in a very broad sense but is also interested in seeing fine art works especially if the topics include culture, nature, science or the environment. She is not interested in seeing fashion or commercial work. Sarah is also very interested in seeing projects under development that may need additional work to complete.

Leen is looking for projects that might be publishable in the magazine but also for the digital extensions of the National Geographic. Leen is a fine photo editor and has ample experience in working with photographers to help them focus their vision on long term projects.
