This video will take your breath away, and it lets you in on what it takes to get some of these photographs you see in magazines like National Geographic and others. It ain't all fun and games. Photographer Coery Richards landed his self-portrait, taken after he realized he wasn't dead, on the cover of said magazine.
Blue Chalk worked with National Geographic Creative photographer and North Face athlete Cory Richards to create a promotional piece to demonstrate the scope of his work and the passion and athleticism that accompanies him in the field. A Tribute to Discomfort brings the viewer through Cory’s stunning work, his unique sense of humor, and his quest to create photographs that relate a common humanity.
