Kevin Fedarko, Writer & Pete McBride, Photographer/Filmmaker

In an effort to share the Grand Canyon’s uncharted glory and shed light on the myriad threats it faces, writer Kevin Fedarko and photographer/filmmaker Pete McBride set off on an audacious and demanding adventure this year: to transect the length of the canyon on foot. This trek is not the pair’s first adventure together, but it may be the toughest.

An award-winning photographer, writer, and filmmaker, Pete has traveled to over 70 countries for a number of publications and companies, including National Geographic Society, Outsidemagazine, Patagonia, and The Nature Conservancy. A passionate conservationist, Pete has been named a “Freshwater Hero” by National Geographic. Kevin left his post as a top editor at Outside magazine for the dusty abyss of the Grand Canyon. Kevin is the author of The Emerald Mile and his work has been featured in National Geographic Adventure, Esquire, and Time, among other publications.
