Extreme Exposures

Step into the shoes of some the most daring photographers in the world – those who continue to make National Geographic a household name for vivid, compelling, world-shaping imagery. Every inch as adventurous as the explorers they cover – their photos are often their only testament to the places they’ve seen and gruelling experiences they’ve endured while on assignment. Until now. This time, while they focus in on their subjects, our cameras are aimed at them. Now you get to live their stories as this full-immersion adventure series rides shotgun to their incredible adventures into the wild, onto the ice, beneath the waves – anywhere their curiosity (and their editor!) compels them to go. These are pros like Steven Alvarez, Nick Nichols, and Carsten Peters, who don’t flinch from the extremes and always do whatever it takes to get the shot. Produced by National Geographic.
