Going To Great Depths For National Geographic

Brian Skerry was inspired by National Geographic at a young age but it took several decades for this underwater photographer to land his dream job.

On Monday's broadcast, Skerry tells Steve Kraske how he developed his diving and camera skills and recounts the challenge that brought him to the attention of National Geographic.  They talk about photographing shipwrecks and sharks as well as some of Skerry's more memorable moments underwater.  After more than three decades and 10,000 hours under the world's oceans, Skerry is now also a voice for the conservation of the animals that inhabit them.
