Chasing Rivers with photographer Pete McBride
Apr 18, 2017
Pete McBride is living proof that when it comes to photography, passion, hard work, and guts matter more than the cost of your gear or where you went to school. McBride grew up on a cattle ranch along the river, fishing its waters and skiing the snows that feed it. Now he’s an acclaimed photographer and filmmaker with more than 15 years of work for National Geographic and an award-winning film, “Chasing Water,” to his credit. Along the way, he’s taken pictures from such unusual vantage points as the cockpit of a WWI-vintage biplane and the underside of an iceberg.
McBride has worked in over 70 countries and has been named a “freshwater hero” by National Geographic for his work photographing and filming great rivers. His talk offers unforgettable journeys down two of them: the Colorado, which flows through majestic landscapes but no longer reaches the sea, and the Ganges, India’s sacred waterway, which is revered as a god, but polluted by the people who worship it.
