On this day in 1993, Al Gore (@algore) was inaugurated as the 45th Vice President of the United States. Though his political and environmental positions have been polarizing, what I appreciate about Vice President Gore is that he has created conversation. I value listening to others’ views and experiences, what drives them to make their decisions, and how they believe those actions will impact the future. Because regardless of political affiliation, that is the shared human experience. I have been privileged to photograph and document change makers through my work with National Geographic, and I learn more about myself and the human condition with every sitting. In every exchange as subject and photographer, I’ve grown both as an artist and as an active participant in the global community. Thank you VP Al Gore. @climatereality@natgeo #algore #natgeo #nationalgeographic #portrait

After a week here at the @natgeoStorytellers Seminar, it’s impossible to not be deeply inspired and I’m also humbled and honored to announce my new fellowship with National Geographic Society in collaboration with writer Gulnaz Khan. Though I’d love to share details of the project, you’ll just have to follow along and see it come to light. Thank you @natgeo for supporting this incredible journey. Follow along in my stories for the last of the Summit here in Washington, DC. #natgeo #nationalgeographic

Proud to say that this picture is on my wall, I wish I would have been in DC this week, all the best.

Amazing image. Powerful.

Keep swiping because here is an inside look to something I’ve never revealed. During the month of January 8 years ago @sadiequarrier, National Geographic photo editor,  asked me to submit a selection of my story telling work for review. If I’m honest, I didn’t have any real story telling work to speak of. As it happens however, I was camped deep in the Karakoram Himalaya of Pakistan, nestled against the border of India. Because of the ongoing conflict on the Siachen Glacier and our proximity there of (and the fact that it was the dead of winter) I was granted unique access to a high Pakistani army operating post. Over the weeks I spent time with the soldiers and made a small but meaningful collection of images that I then put in layout form and submitted to Sadie. This was the first “storytelling work” the magazine had ever seen of mine. In hindsight, some of it is very rudimentary, but they are the pictures that opened this door... and I’m still very proud of them. 8 years after my journey began with National Geographic, I returned with @freddiewilkinsonto continue reporting on the Siachen conflict (seen in first image in carousel). I recall Sadie’s response after receiving the full layout and captions. Simply saying, “you could have just sent jpegs.” Im happy I made the extra effort. Thank you @natgeo@sadiequarrier. I’m here at the National Geographic Storyteller’s summit in Washington DC, so be sure to check my stories for more. #natgeo #nationalgeographic

Yesterday’s post highlighted my first featured story for National Geographic (@natgeo). For me, just shooting for the magazine wasn’t the goal. The goal has always been to evolve. The more assignments I was provided to shoot (a total of 10), the more my photography evolved and changed…sometimes for the better sometimes for the worse. Regardless of taste or time, I was always moving forward. Color and composition, light and layers…it all began to unfold in a different way in front of the lens as time progressed. 8 years into this, like any relationship, the bonds of time becomes deeper and more meaningful. There are no words to express my gratitude towards this institution and what it brings to the world. I’m here at the story tellers summit in Washington DC, so be sure to check my stories for more.

coryrichards's Media: This week I’m in Washington DC for the National Geographic storytellers summit. My first assignment

This week I’m in Washington DC for the National Geographic storytellers summit. My first assignment for the magazine (pictured here in the carousel) was using climbing to explore Mustang’s ancient man-made cave complexes dug into the valley walls in search of significant archeological finds. These “Sky Caves” are home to ancient burial crypts and mummified human remains, as well as Buddhist and Bon artifacts.  I was 30 years old and 12 years into my life as a photographer before this opportunity presented itself to me. This week at the National Geographic summit it is all about inspiration and continuing the legacy of 130 years of story telling around the globe. We’ve told good stories, we’ve told bad stories, but the net contribution has been overwhelmingly positive. I’m super privileged, honored and proud to be a part of this community. Make sure to follow my stories this week for an insiders look into the summit. Pictured here: Matt Segal (@mattsegalclimbs into an ancient library complex below Tsele, Mustang.

It’s been 9 years since good friend, Renan Ozturk (@renan_ozturk) and I established the first ascent of Tawoche’s South Buttress. Climbing is more than physical, it’s a creative release. Both my mom and dad were climbers and exposed me to the sport at the age of 5. Climbing was the method that brought me through a tumultuous adolescence. It has been something I can rely on to bring stability in my life. Goals promote dedication and commitment. It teaches me that though reaching the summit is important, the ultimate lesson is that reaching the summit matters less than the process by which we arrive there. Pictured here: Renan following the final summit pitches on Tawoche’s South Buttress, Khumbu Valley, Nepal, January 2010.

At altitude, everything is a little sharper, a little crisper, a little more clear...maybe it’s the lack of oxygen or maybe it’s just the altered perspective. Either way, I’ll take it.
