Biography of Bryan Smith
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 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 dazzling images – inevitably putting himself and his team at risk to get the shot.
Braving raging white-water in British Columbian rivers; sharing too little space with grizzlies in Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula (where legions of mosquitoes 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.
