Outside: Beyond The Lens

In OUTSIDE: BEYOND THE LENS, host Jeff Aiello and his Emmy Award-winning camera crew tell the stories of travel cinematically. They explore national parks and scenic wonders from Queenstown, New Zealand to Tornado Alley, Texas to the Alaskan wilderness, celebrating the art of photography by documenting how scenic shots are caught on film. But beyond the lens, Jeff and his team also discover the real magic of travel in the people, food and unplanned adventures on each trip.
