Video Chroniclers

Professional videographers capture the unique moments of your expedition

Video chroniclers accompany every expedition aboard our National Geographic-flagged ships. Inspired by historic visual chroniclers, like Herbert Ponting and Frank Hurley, video chroniclers document the moments you experience. Using vivid HD footage shot on your expedition—with no recycled footage ever—they provide you with a professionally edited and completely authentic memento of your expedition. Working during the day, and editing into the night, they have your DVD ready for preview prior to, and available to purchase, at disembarkation.

Our guests consistently compliment the quality of the video and marvel at how many moments were caught on film. With our video chroniclers onboard, you can relax a bit, knowing you don’t have to capture every moment yourself.
