National Geographic Live — A Wild Life

Photographer Bertie Gregory specializes in intimate shots of animals in their natural environment, whether that’s a frigid Vancouver beach or the streets of London. In fact, it’s in those spaces where nature and humanity coexist that he thrives — a result, no doubt, of his teenage years chasing urban swans and pike with his camera. From up close footage of a leopard stalking through Mumbai to evocative portraits of Vancouver’s elusive coastal wolf, he has mastered the art of capturing what binds animal and human together.

National Geographic Live brings the top National Geographic photographers, scientists, filmmakers, and adventurers to audiences around the world to share their unbelievable behind-the-scenes stories and stunning images and video—live onstage.

This event is presented by the Seattle Symphony. It does not include the orchestra.
