Neil Losin and Nathan Dappen are pretty amazing people. Both PhD scientists, both accomplished film-makers and photographers, both ‘outside of the box’ thinkers.

Their most recent project ‘Snows of the Nile’ came about from a nationwide competition put on by Dos Equis. The ‘Stay Thirsty Grant‘ allowed Losin and Dappen to travel to the glaciers of the Rwenzori Mountains in Africa.
