Indiana Zuckerman is Jim's wife and she is from Indonesia. Therefore, when Jim leads tours to this island nation, Indiana (her nick name is 'Dia') is the local guide. She speaks several Indonesian languages, has a bubbly personality, and is ruthless when it comes to bargaining for souvenirs! She is a superb photographer in her own right, and she loves photographing everything but especially children. She is great working with people from all cultures, and when she is not accompanying Jim on a tour she is working behind the scenes in the office running the business.
Luka Esenko is a photography guide in The Balkans -- Montenegro, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, and other parts of Eastern Europe. He is a superb photographer, and when helping Jim plan a trip he takes into careful consideration the best possible lighting and the most dramatic shooting perspectives that always produce outstanding images. Luka is a delight to be with.
Mehmet loves photography, and he is a fabulous guide. Extremely knowledgeable in the history of Turkey and Central Asia, he enriches your travel experience by putting into context the wonderful things you see and photograph. His memory of dates and events of past empires, plus his observations of recent historical and political developments, will give you fascinating insights into this region of the world. I have been using Mehmet for 10 years now, and he is one of the best guides ever.
