"This is a very good DVD right in line with The Photographers DVD. If you enjoy photography this is a nice DVD in that it covers some of how the images where captured. but also nice for anyone. The spots are a bit short. Quality video as always from National Geographic."
A "nice to have in your archive"

"It's a nice dvd explaining very (may be too) briefly how some of the very memorable photos of National Geography photographers are prepared and shot. Also, it's possible to catch a glimpse of what type of gadgets are used by professional photographers. Previously, I watched "National Geographic's Photographers" and I think the level of detail and the length of each section was more appropriate. Also, it gave more insight on the difficulties and pleasures of shooting photos for National Geography. This one is quite short.
But still, I am happy to purchase and watch this DVD. Being a serious amateur photographer, I believe I made the right decision to include it in my archive."

"As somebody on the border between being an amateur/pro photographer I felt this was far too superficial to be useful. There was more information on volcanoes and sharks than on camera equipment, technique, or the photographers themselves.
How to plan an organize a trip? What gear to take? How to deal with the logistics of such projects? How to approach projects of this caliber? How to deal with ethical issues on a shoot? How to become a NatGeo photographer? Not in this DVD.
If you want a too-short overview of a few not-so-famous NatGeo photos, go for it. If you want to really see what it takes to be a (pro) photographer (for NatGeo) forget it."
