Nat Geo Unites Exploration And The Natural World Through ‘Tales By Light’

Nat Geo Unites Exploration, Photography & The Natural World Through 'Tales By Light'

Whenever you read the words ‘National’ and ‘Geographic’ in the same sentence you know there’s going to be some awe-inspiring visuals involved. This is no exception.

Tales by Light* is a TV series offering a rare glimpse into the eyes and minds of some of Australia and the world’s best photographic storytellers uniting exploration, photography and the natural world brought to your TV screens by two heavy-hitters in the National Geographic Channel & Canon Australia.

Driven by an insatiable desire to explore cultures, wildlife and landscapes through their camera lens, these photographers and storytellers blur the lines between art and photography, showing us our world in a new light. Experience the challenges, successes and moments of joy as these masters of their fields work to capture their unique perspective.

Shot in stunning 4K resolution, the six-part television series follows five extraordinary photographers as they push the limits of their craft in little-known, little-covered and little- understood corners of the Earth.

This project has been a fulfilment of that dream.”
