A child of the Colorado, PETE MCBRIDE grew up on a cattle ranch along the river, fishing its waters and skiing its snows. Now he’s an acclaimed photographer and filmmaker with over 15 years of work for National Geographic and an award-winning film, Chasing Water, to his credit. The stories he tells are important. So important that National Geographic has named McBride a “freshwater hero” for his work photographing and filming the world’s most beloved rivers. While his unique global perspective on freshwater draws from work in over 70 countries, his most recent big projects have been “source to sea” journeys along two major rivers: the Colorado and the Ganges.
