Photographing Hang Son Doong, the World’s Largest Cave, by Gregg Jaden

In 2009, I was involved in a near fatal car crash when an oncoming car made an unsafe left turn in front of my vehicle, nearly killing me. This life changing incident was a blessing. It forced me to slow down and really assess how I was living and experiencing my life. This near-death experience revealed to me the need to be creative on a much higher level and really contribute to this planet.

Photographer Brings Drone Into One of the World’s Largest River Caves

Back in March 2015, photographer Ryan Deboodt captured the world's attention by bringing his drone into Hang Son Doong, the single largest cave in the world.

Now he's back again with another incredible project. For the 3-minute video above, Deboodt took his drone into Khoun Xe Cave in Laos, which is known as one of the largest river caves on Earth.

The Story of How I Shot a Wedding Inside a Cave

My name is Andre Oliveira. I’m 24 years old, and I began learning how to use DSLR cameras in 2008 starting with a Canon Rebel Ti that my school supplied. I worked my way to my first Nikon, the D3100, and then eventually up to a D7000. My best upgrade was buying a Nikon 50mm prime lens 4 years ago.

Shooting Son Doong in 360°

As me and my team left for Vietnam this January, we had a goal: to make an interactive reportage about the world’s largest cave for National Geographic. This included several things no one had ever attempted before: lighting up and capturing the largest caverns that exist on this Earth. In 360 degrees.

What could go wrong, right?

Photographer Takes Drone Into Hang Son Doong, the Largest Cave in the World

Hang Son Doong is a cave in Vietnam that's currently the largest known cave in the world. Inside is a vast green jungle-like world and underground river that looks like something out of the movie Avatar.

Photographer Ryan Deboodt recently brought his DSLRs and camera drone into the cave to capture what it's like from both the ground and the air. The 6-minute video above is the "otherworldly journey" he was able to capture.

Requiem of Ice: A Thought-Provoking, Visually Compelling Ode to a Disappearing Ice Cave

In a decade's time, the Sandy Glacier Caves -- thought to be the largest glacier cave system in the continental United States -- might disappear entirely. It was this startling discovery that led filmmaker Ben Canales and his team at Uncage the Soul onto the steep slopes of Mount Hood to film a visually breathtaking short film called Requiem of Ice.

An Interesting BTS Look at What It Takes to Be a Cave Photographer

It might not be one of the best-known or most popular genres of the trade, but cave photography is an actual thing... and it’s not easy.

In the behind the scenes video above, Knoxville-based photographer Chris Higgins shows us just how much dedication, discipline and dirt it takes to get incredible photographs of the mysterious worlds hidden within the Earth.

Photographing the Jaw-Dropping ‘Crystal Caves’ of Iceland

If there is only one way for me to describe Iceland, it would be “Monumental Scale Shock”. The country really borders on the extreme. The entire country’s population of 320,137 (as of 2012) is less than one half of Boston’s and two-thirds of everyone lives in the capital, Reykjavik. It's north of NYC by almost all of Canada, but it is warmer by about ten degrees in the winter. And 85% of the country is on renewable energy (Volcanic and Water) as compared to the 13.2% for the US.
