He shoots in some of themost exotic locales on earth, but often in wretched conditions for weeks onend. NET Television's "At Close Range with National Geographic" receives itsnational PBS premiere on Monday, Feb. 5. It will air at 9 p.m. CT. Fromcapturing the beauty of Sandhill cranes near Kearney, NE., to the tropics ofthe Amazon jungle, the program follows Ralston, Neb., native Sartore in hispursuit of the perfect image.While Sartore muses about whether his is the best job in the world or theworst, he also considers working for National Geographic Magazine an honor.His images must tell a story for the legendary publication where photographsform the narrative for every article. He feels that the majority ofAmericans want to know that there are still some things left that are wildand natural. National Geographic brings that idea home to the world."At Close Range" follows Sartore as his assignments take him to Brazil,Bolivia, Alaska and Yellowstone Park, as well as several Nebraska locations,including the Lillian Annette Rowe Bird Sanctuary near Kearney to photographSandhill cranes; the Burwell Rodeo to shoot the Wild Horse Race, one of themost dangerous events on the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association circuit;and Lincoln's Little Salt Creek to document the endangered Salt Creek TigerBeetle.The program shows Sartore in consultation with National Geographic Magazinephoto editors in Washington, D.C., as thousands of individual frames arewhittled down to the 10 or 20 that will accompany a typical magazine story.
