The adventures of two explorers will come to life when National Geographic Live comes to Sydney this year.

In August, photographer David Doubilet will take audiences under the sea as he shows off his images from the waters of Papua New Guinea, Antarctica and Canada’s Gulf of St. Lawrence forCoral, Fire & Ice: Explore Secret Underwater Worlds. Doubilet will reveal never before seen images from his assignments and will share stories from his five decades behind the camera.

Bryan Smith, award-winning filmmaker, adventurer and conservationist for the National Geographic will share gripping moments from his assignments to cover extreme feats in some of the world’s most challenging environments. Whether its braving whitewater rapids in British Columbian rivers, cozying up with grizzlies in Russia or fulfilling the dream of eternal flight, Smith has been there to get the footage.

National Geographic Live is the live events division of the National Geographic Society, featuring live concerts, films and presentations by today’s leading explorers, scientists, filmmakers and photographers. All proceeds from speaker series ticket sales held fund future National Geographic initiatives in field research, exploration and education.
