We are on board the National Geographic Explorer, part way through Lindblad’s Epic South America Expedition. Today she is exploring the delta of the great Amazon River and there is no better place to celebrate last night’s win of an Emmy for Expedition Workshops’ David Wright.

David received the award for his work as a cinematographer on the National Geographic series “Untamed Americas” which is being featured as part of the entertainment on board the Explorer during the voyage. It is a four part natural history series celebrating the wildlife of both North and South America.

David previously received an Emmy for his polar bear film, “Realm of the Great White Bear” which has also been featured while he has been on board for a number of Lindblad’s Arctic expeditions. Other accolades include a Jules Verne award for his work in the Arctic and a BAFTA for his contribution to the David Attenborough series “Life In Cold Blood”.
