As a former journalist, photojournalist, and magazine editor, I’ve spent most of a decade before becoming a full-time photographer, honing and crafting a sense of story. So that’s been very important.Tyler Stableford
In this episode of reDefine, we talked with Tyler Stableford, one of the top adventure photographers in the world as ranked by Men’s Journal, and director of the award-winning film, The Fall Line. We met up in New York to talk about some of his more hazardous experiences, such as photographing through extreme G-forces and shooting on the floor of a coal mine while it was actually bouncing up. And listen in as he explains why volunteering is one of the most important, and selfish ways, to advance your craft and your career.
Tyler has some great resources for photographers on his blog, as well as behind the scenes footage on his blog. Be sure to check them out.
I consider volunteering to be a very selfish pursuit, and and I think it should be – because that’s where it’s most sustainable.Tyler Stableford
