EditorNews Make a Comment

National Geographic photographer/filmmaker Bryan Smith visits Wellington and Auckland next month to show a behind-the-scenes presentation about working in the Earth’s most challenging environments.

Bryan Smith’s work is all about extreme adventure. During his National Geographic Live – Extreme Adventure on the Edge shows he talks to the audience about shooting scary and breathtaking images – from base jumping in Yosemite to whitewater kayaking in Russia.

His films and photos have featured at festivals and showcases across the world, including the Banff and Telluride Mountain Film Festivals. His portfolio includes projects for National Geographic, Discovery, Disney, and Red Bull.

In 2010 he earned a National Geographic Expeditions Grant for his work in Kamchatka, Russia and launched into digital media, co-producing and directing The Season web TV series.

He has worked as both a field producer and director of photography for National Geographic Television on shows including Alaska Wing Men, Explorer, Nat Geo Amazing and Monster Fish. Most recently he co-produced and directed The Man Who Can Fly, a 60 minute special for the National Geographic Channel Explorer series.

The Wellington show is on at Te Papa on Thursday 2 October at 7.30pm; the Auckland show is at the ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre, the previous day – Wednesday 1 October at 7.30pm.

The National Geographic Live – Extreme Adventure on the Edge show, starring Bryan Smith, also plays in Sydney, Melbourne, Wollongong, and Singapore.

Tickets cost $49+gst (plus booking fee) for Premium seating; $39+gst for budget tickets (sorry, A Reserve!).
