Expedition Photography

B&H Gear Locker

Been yearning to try some big glass? Looking to invest in a new camera but haven’t had the time to research? Dive into the onboard B&H Photo Video Gear Locker with our compliments. Field test new glass, camera bodies, and more during your expedition. And pre-voyage, you’ll have access to a photography webinar and gear recommendations exclusively for booked guests. Ask your expedition specialist for details.

The B&H Gear Locker is available on the National Geographic Explorer, National Geographic Orion, National Geographic Venture, National Geographic Quest, National Geographic Sea Bird, National Geographic Sea Lion, and (in 2020) National Geographic Endurance.
