This winter, National Geographic Live returns to Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland—and launches new series in Perth, Wellington, Wollongong, and Singapore—showcasing our world through the eyes of two of our best photographers and filmmakers. From capturing images of fantastic hidden worlds beneath the waves, to recording heart-stopping video of extreme athletes pushing the limits of human possibility, David Doubilet and Bryan Smith are both living proof that the golden age of exploration is not over.
