Filmmaker Bob Poole will give a behind-the-scenes look at his career in wildlife cinematography.
As part of the National Geographic Live series, Emmy Award-winning cinematographer Bob Poole is headed to the Tobin Center to discuss his extensive work in the field of wildlife cinematography and conservation as well as his upcoming six-part PBS docuseries Gorongosa Park: Rebirth of Paradise.

The TV show documents a conservation project in one of Africa’s greatest natural parks and features incredible HD footage of creatures big and small. Poole works with a variety of rangers and scientists including his sister, renowned elephant researcher Joyce Poole, to bring hope to the environments and animals of Gorongosa Park.

If you’re even a minor fan of nature documentaries, you’re probably familiar with Poole’s extensive list of cinematography credits across networks including PBS, National Geographic and the Discovery Channel. His Tobin Center show promises a behind-the-scenes look at decades of documentary filmmaking.

$20-$45, 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 30, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org.
