2013/14 Subscription Series
Join us for our third season of amazing evenings with National Geographic’s boldest and brightest as they share awe-inspiring stories and images of their quest to unearth, explore and document the world’s wonders.
Paul Nicklen, Wildlife Photojournalist
Mon, Nov 11 / Tues, Nov 12, 2013 at 8pm
Remote access isn’t just a buzz term for Paul Nicklen—it’s a way of life. The intrepid photojournalist, who grew up on Baffin Island, has devoted his career to the iciest expanses on Earth (his 2009 book, Polar Obsession, is a stunning collection of shots from the Arctic and Antarctic). His upcoming National Geographic book, Bear: Spirit of the Wild, is the result of an exhaustive study of polar bears, black bears, grizzly bears and the mysterious Spirit Bears.
The Lens of Adventure
Bryan Smith, Extreme Filmmaker
Mon, Dec 2 / Tues, Dec 3, 2013 at 8pm
Where do boatloads of talent and a daredevil spirit lead? Down the tortuous rivers of India, Peru, Russia and North America, across the globe in search of the monster fish, and any other far-flung, perilous location a camera and kayak can go. Whether working on National Geographic’s show Hooked or directing a special about experiments in human-powered flight, Bryan Smith exhibits creativity and fearlessness when it comes to getting the shot—any shot.
Joel Sartore, Photographer
Mon, Feb 24 / Tues, Feb 25, 2014 at 8pm
Saving the world one shot at a time takes skill, commitment, patience and nerves of steel. Twenty years into his career, National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore has been hunted down by irate animals, survived a flesh-eating parasite, logged some up close and personal—very personal—time with rattlesnakes and been quarantined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s all in a day’s work when work involves documenting the planet’s most vulnerable species and landscapes.
Stranger in a Strange Land
Jodi Cobb, Photographer
Mon, May 12 / Tues, May 13, 2014 at 8pm
In the mid-70s, Jodi Cobb joined National Geographic magazine and went on to shoot some of the most pivotal stories in the magazine’s history. Known for breaking through barriers and going undercover to reveal hidden societies, Cobb has brought to light some of the first images ever published from glimpses into Japan’s secret Geisha culture and the cloistered lives of Saudi Arabian women. She has also explored the singular experience of being a twin and what is considered “beautiful” around the world.
