Summary
A great photograph should speak for itself, but that doesn't mean there aren't great stories behind it. This program highlights the work of daring photographers who have captured images for National Geographic. Viewers are presented with a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of ten of the most exciting pictures from the magazine's recent history. Image locations range from icy mountains at immense heights to sweltering deserts below sea level. With offerings from photographers Tom Campbell, Greg Child, Karen Davies, and others, students learn what happened behind the lenses that captured some of the best adventure shots in recent memory.
