I am Nat Geo Photographer


The Navigation team has just completed production of a 6 episode reality programme for National Geographic Abu Dhabi: I am National Geographic Photographer.  

This original format programme stands as its first of a kind in the region. Eight amateur photographers compete to win the “National Geographic Photographer” title, with one photographer eliminated in each episode by a board of judges consisting of three well established photographers: Laura El-Tantawy, Jack Dabaghian and Matthew Dols.

The show has been filmed in a variety of locations around the United Arab Emirates. 

You can follow the show at its Facebook page.

Qasr Al Hosn

We had a wonderful opportunity to work with Timesand Studios, Abu Dhabi and gsmprjct, Canada, on the production of a film for the Qasr Al Hosn festival in Abu Dhabi. The film showcased a series of stories as told by Emiratis who lived in the capital around the historic site before the union of the seven emirates.

The Unknown Known

Navigation Films facilitated filming in Baghdad earlier this year for Academy Award winning director Errol Morris's new film, The Unknown Known, which explores the life of former United States Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld.
