Behind-the-scenes photography offers a unique perspective; not only is one able to see the inner workings of filmmaking but, sometimes, one is able to see a more candid side to the individuals who grace the big screen.

In February 1968, the film “Planet of the Apes” premiered in U.S. theaters. The movie, which was adapted from Pierre Boulle’s 1963 novel, “Monkey Planet,” starred Charlton Heston as an astronaut aboard a spaceship that crash-lands on a seemingly foreign, desolate planet ruled by apes.

I first learned about National Geographic’s Photo Camp when I was compiling footage for a year-end impact video for the Society. I began asking around and discovered that a Photo Camp was going to take place with youth from Baltimore in Shenandoah National Park and would involve Nat Geo photographers John Stanmeyer and Amy Toensing. Little did I know that this simple footage search would turn into one of the most profound experiences of my life.

Turning a collection of Instagram photos into a hardcover book may seem a strange concept at first, but that’s exactly what National Geographic has done with “@NatGeo: The Most Popular Instagram Photos” – and for good reason.

I love behind-the-scenes photography. The Fox Archives has gorgeous portraits, scene stills and Fox lot photography, but the photographs that depict what happens off camera are my personal favorite.
