Movie Reviews

Not for photographers.
Michael Ryan | 05/09/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"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."
A Must See!

"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 LOVE photography, you'll LOVE this DVD -- GUARANTEED!

"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!"
See the real life of some great photographers

"If you want some inspiration to throw all and become a photographer, this can help a lot. It show how some of the most recognized photographers work and they insights on working as a National Geographic photographer, mostly the nice things and some of the bad."
