    Hi folks. How 'bout a big round of applause for Andrew Kornylak for his excellent Guest Blog post yesterday! Besides his very cool adventure photography, I loved what he did with this videos, and I know it got a lot of people thinking about ways to extend what they're already doing, and that's one of the things I love best about Guest Blog Wednesday; it gets us thinking and seeing things in a new way. Thanks Andrew for an inspiring and informative post! Now, onto the news: One from The Outer Banks The image above is another one from my trip to DLWS Workshop in North Carolina's Outer Banks and this one is from Tuesday morning's dawn shoot at the commercial pier (click on it for a larger view). These rusty abandoned old boats made some really great subjects for the class to shoot,…

    New Adventures in Photography

    Photo by Corey Rich

    In 2000 I was a software developer living in Tucson, Arizona. I had been rock climbing for seven years, and taking pictures of my adventures. I was totally psyched on Galen Rowell’s Art of Adventure Photography. I too wanted to share my passion for the great outdoors – not just how it looked, but how I felt about it and how I thought about it. Simple ideas like this make a young person reckless. I quit my job to “go pro.” This was a hilarious idea by the way – I didn’t actually stop doing software work on the side for another six years.

    On the Sharp End. Self portrait from the Whetstone Mountains in Arizona.

    My first publication was a 2-page spread in Outside Magazine. Climbing in the remote Whetstone Mountains of Southern Arizona, I made a photograph of my hand reaching out into a cave from 40 feet up, clipping my lead rope to the next protection point, depicting the first-person view of what it’s like “on the sharp end” of the lead-rope.

    I was hanging from a rope to get this shot of course, not actually climbing. After climbing the line once before, I thought about the idea for a photograph. I went back up with the camera (a Nikon F100) and spent some time getting myself in position for the shot. I contorted myself Superman-style to hold the rope with one hand, shoot with the other, and keep my feet and gear out of the frame. That’s the way a lot of my “adventures” actually went. Out playing somewhere, I would get an idea, marinate on it for a while, and then come back later to create a photograph.

    .....I was introduced to when he and I both wound up being the featured photographers in the same issue of Nikon World magazine, it's Atlanta-based editorial and commercial photographer, Andrew Kornylak. He's got some amazing images---and before you read his post tomorrow, make sure you check out his Action photography portfolio at his Web site (click here). Make sure you check back tomorrow to see what Andrew has in store for us. :)

    So after I shot the Honda Superbike Races on Sunday in Birmingham, I hopped a flight (well, two flights), up to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina to be a part of Moose Peterson's DLWS (Digital Landscape Workshop Series) "Outer Banks" workshop, which kicked off Sunday night (I'm not teaching; I just came to shoot and hang out with my buddies Moose, Joe McNally, and Laurie Excell, and I had a blast (That's right; I did this morning's sunrise shoot then headed to the airport to head back home). They're still going to shoot sunset today and sunrise tomorrow, but I've got to head back home, see the kids, and then get ready for my Down & Dirty tour in DC (which was sold out last Friday with over 700 people for the day). Also with me was the 'Bad Man' himself, Brad Moore (who used…

    Yesterday I few up to Birmingham, Alabama to spend the day with my buddy Jeff Rease (who we now affectionately call "The Chancellor of Birmingham"), shooting the AMA Racing's Honda Superbike Classic race at Barber Motorsports Park. Matt Kloskowski came along with me, and the three of us spent the morning shooting (some of the shots I got are shown here; click on them for larger views). We had full media credentials, including a Hot Pit pass, but as luck would have it; we only got to shoot for 30 minutes total the entire day, (during the Superbike morning warm-up session), because after warm-up and lunch, a huge thunderstorm moved over the track, which delayed the actual race long enough that I had to catch my flight back home without getting to shoot another shot. We only shot from one area, and for only…
