Photographer Corey Rich’s career has led him through crocodile-filled rivers in Papua New Guinea, sandstorms in the Saharan desert and below-freezing blizzards in the Andes. His passion is telling stories through photography, and he specializes in capturing images of extreme sports luminaries such as climber Chris Sharma and world champion surfer Lisa Anderson.

Rich is one of 18 awe-inspiring photographers from all over the world who will be offering seminars and hands-on demonstrations at San Diego’s sixth annual Photo Expo West. If you’ve ever wondered how to capture the stunning shots published in top magazines and want to learn tricks of the trade from daring shooters like Rich, mark your calendars for the weekend of November 13-14.
