Much of National Geographic's incredible success comes from the astonishing series of photographers that have worked under its masthead over the years. Now, in celebration of the magazine's 125th anniversary, National Geographic has launched its Proof blog, turning its attention to the folks behind the lens.

The blog will cover all things photographic for National Geographic, as it's described:

Proof will offer a real-time look at our storytelling process—everything from how to edit down 60,000 photographs to 12, to which single item a photographer on a four-month assignment can’t live without. Equally important to us is finding more incredible stories that you, our members, have created, and then spreading them around the globe. We want to celebrate, with you, all the possibilities for visual storytelling that this new century offers.

Proof has started off with a bang, with a video called Photographers on Photography. It's a preview of a series of interviews with 44 photographers, talking about their background with photography, how they got into the field, their views, and much more. We're going to eagerly keep an eye on this video series to see what else it has in store.
