Behind every great National Geographic story there’s an explorer who travels to the wildest places above and below the earth to bring back epic tales of adventure and discovery.

Returning to New Zealand and presenting in Wellington for the first time, National Geographic Live presents two extraordinary adventurers to share their unbelievable stories in an audio visual feast that will have audiences at the edge of their seats.

Coral, Fire, & Ice sees legendary underwater photographer David Doubilet cast a spell of enchantment with the glittering beauty of the world’s “coral triangle’’ and the lure of sculptural icebergs and shipwrecks in the icy waters of Antarctica.

Appealing to those inspired by travel, exploration, discovery – and who value the National Geographic Society’s mission to inspire people to care about the planet – National Geographic Live is for adventurers, thinkers, nature lovers and explorers of all ages.

Join Bryan Smith, an award-winning filmmaker, adventurer and conservationist for the National Geographic Channel, as he shares gripping moments from his assignments to document extreme feats and high adventure in the world’s most challenging environments.

An experienced kayaker who had paddled steep rivers in India, Peru, and Russia, Smith was inspired to take up video photography while protesting a hydroelectric dam project that threatened British Columbian rivers. He quickly developed a knack for creating innovative technical solutions to capture dizzying images—inevitably putting himself and his team at risk to get the shot.

Braving raging whitewater in British Columbian rivers; sharing too little space with grizzlies in Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula (where legions of mosquitos are the other voracious predators to fear); and fulfilling the eternal dream of human flight are all situations and subjects that have absorbed Bryan Smith over the past ten years.

As opposed to being a thrill-seeker, Bryan Smith is a deeply creative, conservation-minded, and extraordinarily passionate storyteller who very consciously uses his filmmaking craft to elevate important stories that will invigorate and inspire us to probe our limitations, and entertain us in new ways.
