National Geographic Photojournalist Arrested

You would expect to see that headline on a story with a foreign dateline, not Kansas. George Steinmetz was arrested last month for trespassing, though the story is a little vague at the moment.


Steinmetz has done some stunning work for National Geographic, shooting landscapes from a paraglider. It appears he was arrested in trespassing charges for where he parked and took off from, not for shooting from the air. There have been a large number of so-called AgGag bills passed and the country that make it illegal to photograph agricultural properties even if you're in a public space.
