Corey Rich has built a life and career around his passions for travel, adventure, and telling stories with his camera. With a background in rock climbing and photojournalism, Rich’s work spans a range of genres, from iconic still imagery for leading editorial publications, to television spots and films, to directing high-production-value commercial projects for Fortune 100 companies.
Outside of shooting photographs and directing films, Rich spends a significant portion of his time teaching, speaking, and sharing knowledge with the next generation of storytellers.
He lives with his wife, Marina, daughter, Leila, and dog, Preta, in South Lake Tahoe.
“Corey Rich is one of the best visual storytellers out there. Stories Behind the Images is a behind-the-scenes look that shows you that the person holding the camera is perhaps the biggest adventurer of them all. I absolutely love this book.” — Tommy Caldwell, professional climber
“A life well lived is the reflection of a world-class person. That is Corey! His courage, creativity, and photographic brilliance is inspirational. World-class is the essence of Stories Behind the Images.”
— Tom Frost, Yosemite climbing and adventure photography pioneer
“Corey Rich is one of those rare breeds that marries multiple skills and somehow makes 2 and 2 add up to a 5. As a true artist, he is as fine a photographer as he is a climber, teacher, mentor, speaker and storyteller.”
— Rich Clarkson, former Director of Photography at National Geographic and founder of Clarkson Creative and Summit Workshops
“Epic stories from a man who has lived and worked on the edge.”
— Bear Grylls, survival specialist and television personality
