Photography for some of us is a very casual and carefree experience. But for others, it’s quite dangerous. Take National Geographic photographer Cory Richards for example, who talks about is love adventure photography and how it became his voice in the world. But specifically, he talks about going to Pakistan and an avalanche almost killing him and his crew. When he realized that he survived, he turned the camera on himself and took the image that you see above in the screenshot. This image was his way of dealing with stress but it was also the cover of one of the magazines.

Cory states that he can’t be comfortable and he’s driven towards the unknown to create images that make people feel the way that he does.
