Adventure Photographer & Alpine Climber

Cory Richards is a National Geographic photographer and adventurer of the year in 2012. The video on his home page about his life is inspirational. It’s the one in a million story of a school drop out at 14 , homeless guy,  who finds expression through a camera and goes on to climb all the top peaks in the Himalayas and Antarctica.

If you are have just completed ( or in my case barely started ) climbing Munros and looking for something bigger check out his Banff FIlm Festival award-winning film – COLD


In case you are feeling the cold of winter  – watch this and feel warm.

One of the great things about photography is that amazing images can take you to the most incredible places on the planet. Cory visits the most inaccessible and sometimes scary remote winter mountain landscapes. I might never reach those places but can enjoy them through the lens of an adventurer. It still inspires me to at least visit the ones in my own country.

The stories format of taking pictures in a project to tell a story is an excellent way to set goals for camera projects.

A great website. Highly recommend you visit.
