Engage in the art of nature through National Geographic Live. Explore the behind-the-scenes stories⁠ and stunning imagery⁠ from National Geographic’s world-renowned photographers, scientists, authors, filmmakers, conservationists, and adventurers from the comfort of home. These one-time-only online events end with a live Q&A so that you can join in on the conversation.

On Wednesday, March 17, at 7 p.m. meet two National Geographic filmmakers renowned for capturing extreme feats of adventure in some of the world’s most remote and inhospitable environments. Based out of British Columbia, Bryan Smith brings stories of adventure to the screen from the South Pacific’s deepest canyons to the frozen waters of Niagara Falls. Keith Ladzinski takes on the seemingly impossible — including chasing tornadoes, hanging from massive natural arches, and swimming with alligators — to document the endeavors of the world’s most elite adventurers.
