My name is Austin Beahm and I'm a lecturer of geography and photographer from California. For the past fifteen years, I've traveled and worked in Latin America and Asia. Most recently, I've photographed stories on traditional Japanese free-divers and Muay Thai fighters in Bangkok. Many of these photos are used for my university teaching, and others have appeared with National Geographic and the World Bank.
