This film focuses on two National Geographic photographers; Mark Moffett and Annie Griffiths Belt. Mark Moffett has travelled the world looking at nature up-close. He has discovered new species and is one of the few to earn his Ph.D. under the famous ecologist, E. O.Wilson. Annie Griffiths Belt was one of the first females to be hired by National Geographic as a photographer. She has worked on all continents, except Antarctica. The films focus is on her book “A Camera, Two Kids And A Camel,” where Annie took her children on her adventures for her work as a National Geographic photographer. These two photographers show the dedication and passion it takes to be a successful photographer.
