Rank #4: TCF Ep. 210 - Elliott Erwitt
Erwitt traveled in France and Italy in 1949 with his trusty Rolleiflex camera. In 1951 he was drafted for military service and undertook various photographic duties while serving in a unit of the Army Signal Corps in Germany and France.
While in New York, Erwitt met Edward Steichen, Robert Capa and Roy Stryker, the former head of the Farm Security Administration. Stryker initially hired Erwitt to work for the Standard Oil Company, where he was building up a photographic library for the company, and subsequently commissioned him to undertake a project documenting the city of Pittsburgh.
In 1953 Erwitt joined Magnum Photos and worked as a freelance photographer for Collier's, Look, Life, Holiday and other luminaries in that golden period for illustrated magazines. To this day he is for hire and continues to work for a variety of journalistic and commercial outfits.
In the late 1960s Erwitt served as Magnum's president for three years. He then turned to film: in the 1970s he produced several noted documentaries and in the 1980s eighteen comedy films for Home Box Office. Erwitt became known for benevolent irony, and for a humanistic sensibility traditional to the spirit of Magnum.

Rank #17: TCF Ep. 219 - Joel Sartore
Joe’s assignments have taken him to every continent and to the world’s most beautiful and challenging environments, from the High Arctic to the Antarctic.
Simply put, Joel is on a mission to document endangered species and landscapes in order to show a world worth saving.
His interest in nature started in childhood, when he learned about the very last passenger pigeon from one of his mother’s Time-Life books. He has since been chased by a wide variety of species including wolves, grizzlies, musk oxen, lions, elephants and polar bears.
His first National Geographic assignment introduced him to nature photography, and also allowed him to see human impact on the environment first-hand.
In his words, “It is folly to think that we can destroy one species and ecosystem after another and not affect humanity. When we save species, we’re actually saving ourselves.”
In addition to his work he has done for National Geographic, Joel has contributed to Audubon Magazine, Geo, Time, Life, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated and numerous book project. Joel and his work have been the subjects of several national broadcasts including National Geographic’s Explorer, The NBC Nightly NEws, NPR’s Weekend Edition and an hour-long PBS documentary, At Close Range.

David duChemin’s idealism doesn’t seem to be fading any. In fact it looks like it’s settling in for the long haul. He still wants to use his powers for good (and not for evil); he still wants to save the world and be a resource to others who would do the same. As such, his main client work is serving the international NGO community.
