Let’s discover how the photographers and editors organize themselves to prepare and resolve assignments and also an open look at the less known departments of National Geographic.

Everything starts in the hall of the National Geographic building in Washington D.C., where photo exhibitions and open discussions with photographers are scheduled to share experiences.

After that we will see the process of photo editing, printing, the process to manage with the old image archives, how  to set up the cameras for specific purposes and the annual Nat Geo Photo Seminar, where we will meet some of the legendary photographers from National Geographic Magazine and other famous and historical contributors.
