Pete McBride is part of the elite corps of photographers and filmmakers whose work appears regularly in National Geographic and on the National Geographic Channel. In one of McBride’s most famous adventures, he hiked 800 miles of the Grand Canyon with Kevin Fedarko, documenting how development is altering the icon of the American West.
For that trek, McBride had to pack ultra-light, but he still needed to have a camera and lens that could keep up with him and produce stills and video in line with the highest standards of National Geographic. He used the Sony α7R II and 16-35mm Vario-Tessar T FE F4 ZA OSS lens. The results are remarkable.
We’re incredibly excited to welcome McBride to the Sony Artisans Of Imagery. “Photography is not only a passport to unlock hidden doors to wild places,” he says “but it’s also a tool to help us connect to each other and to understand this magical blue, fragile planet we all share.“
