Daredevil feats by extreme risk-takers often steal away our breath, but film-makers that bring their story intimately to viewers around the world possibly have even more wacky stories to share.

For the second leg of the inaugural National Geographic Live series in Singapore — and Asia — intrepid explorer and filmmaker Bryan Smith is set to captivate the audience with tales and powerful images of some of the extreme lengths he and his team go to, in some of the most challenging conditions. Hear about how his team of “linguine masters” carefully avoided killing free climber and base jumper Dean Potter in Mount Butte, and why the wild salmon paradise of Kamchatka Peninsula has left such a lasting impression on him.

Born in Michigan, the United States, but based in Canada’s British Columbia, the 38-year-old is an experienced kayaker with a keen sense of exploration, having paddled in steep rivers in India, Peru and Russia. Over the last decade or so, his love for adventure and treacherous environments has combined powerfully with his passion for conservation and story-telling through motion pictures.

Peek into his lens of adventure this October and be inspired to take your own leap of faith on your next journey!
