WOW! What more can I say! Just watching this was an absolutely extraordinary experience. This is a "behind the scenes" look at photography. It gets you up close and personal with the photographers and lets you know what is involved in trying to capture the "shot of a lifetime". I own many National Geographic books, but you won't be able to appreciate what goes into each photograph without watching this DVD. Even those who are not interested in photography will be able to appreciate it.

If you ask any amateur photographer who they'd like to work for as a photographer, you would probably hear "The National Geographic Magazine". Their lives, as we see it through the eyes of the pictures that are published in the magazine, appear nothing short of glamourous.
This DVD not only shows some of NGM best pictures but also reveals the lives and visions of the photographers behind these stories and pictures. If you enjoy photography, you'll enjoy it for sure.
I've already watched mine more than 5 times in less than two months!

If you are expecting great insight into the lives of National Geographic's photographers or even revelations about what makes great photography then look elsewhere. This video greatly disappointed me as it is nothing more than promotional drivel. So fawning and servile is the narration that each sentence sounds as if it is about to collapse under the weight of the compliments for the organization. It reminds me of these terrible "the making of..." TV programs the have now to promote movies. It should be given free with subscriptions and not charged for. It is short and shallow and holds about 15 minutes in total interest for any photographer. Buy the magazine or one of their books instead.

Not a "how to" dvd per se, I thought it gave more inspiration for the the budding photographer than anything. If you are into photography and especially photojournalism then I highly recommend this one!

Thrilling and insightful on the life and times of the NG photograther. It will make you appreciate what they do even more. Also motivating for those who are interesting in Editorial, adventure, or photojournalist photography.

this video is an eye opener for all photographers and readers of national geographic magazine. we view these photographers as a glamorous profession but this video will reveal the hardships they encounter just to get those special shots. this is not a video about camera exposures and lighting effects but more of where,why and when did they decided to shoot a particular shot. you will see the inner workings of the magazine and how they choose particular photos for publishing. highly recommended video.

We presented this video to our camera club which comprises of novice and professional photographers and it was a big hit! You get the behind the scenes set ups, and the various photographers talk about their work, why they chose to be with Nat Geo, they're feelings and opinions of the work they do and how they think about what affect the shots will have on their readers. It's not all that glamorous, and that's fine because live isn't always glamorous. The content portrays what they do is very rewarding, especially when it evokes readers to contact the magazine and/or the photographer to say they were touched by the photos. One such story relayed was that school children had collected money for children in need in Africa and sent it to a mission there. Some subjects' lives have been followed after the photos were published to see how they are, while friendships forged by the photographer and their subjects were portrayed. You can't beat the amazing nature photography, as you learn so much about animals, their habitat and the people who strive to study them and struggle to help them survive. The variety of photographers they interviewed about their work which is displayed while they are discussion it is insightful. You do not have to be a photographer to appreciate this video. It has a few violent/ graphic scenes such as, the extreme poverty in Afica and the violence of the hunt with lions ripping apart a zebra, but that's all part of life. I highly recommend this video for it's quality of work and the personal insights of the photographers. The resulting pictures throughout are breathtaking and unique. I like the way they seperated the various subject matter by each photographers' specialty. Well worth the money!!
