The magazine has a celebrated history as an innovative place for photography — from creating the first photographic survey of the night sky in the Northern Hemisphere to making the first color photographs undersea, and it continues to push technological and creative boundaries. In print, the magazine marks its 125th anniversary with a special October issue devoted to photography.
In addition to its leadership in photographic technology and storytelling, over the course of its history the magazine’s images have documented numerous discoveries and expeditions (many funded by the National Geographic Society), from the first American ascent of Everest to Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey’s work with primates in Africa to Jacques Cousteau’s dives and James Cameron’s historic solo descent to the bottom of the Mariana Trench in 2012.
The anniversary issue is the largest measured revenue issue in the magazine’s history, with a mix of global and domestic ad campaigns.

Having traveled around the world last year, I already know that this trip is going to be simply amazing. Alas, the plane has numbered seats and weight restrictions, I imagine, leaving me to represent all of you on this expedition of a lifetime. So many NG articles inspired so many of my trips; I have well over 5 million air miles so NG is also a money maker for airlines.

In some ways, this special birthday is even more personal for me, because I blame National Geographic entirely for my incurable wanderlust.
To this day, I cannot pick up a copy of National Geographic and not be hit with a powerful drive to walk out the door and head off to some rare corner of the globe to discover their faraway life. Honestly, I’ve been waiting all year for this trip, giddy with the very same wanderlust I had as a child, pinching myself at the destinations that lie in wait (London!

I read (or flipped through), every single issue of National Geographic and World magazines. Every longing I have for a place on the globe can be traced back to a particular story, image, or cover of National Geographic. Some of you have traveled with me online now for years, and I sincerely wish you could be by my side as we celebrate the very thing that we all love, National Geographic.
