Earth From Above aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Betrand speaks to THTV about how he began shooting from the skies. Siting Jane Goodall as "his hero," Bertrand tells of traveling to Africa to study lions. Needing to earn a living, he took a job on a hot-air balloon as a tour guide pointing out African wildlife to tourists. It was up, up, up from there!
His landmark film Home opens today around on world on multiple platforms (theater, web, television). The film is being made entirely for free and 15% of proceeds from DVD sales go to Conservation International.
