The Benefits of Suffering: On Life and Photography with Cory Richards


Adventure photographer Cory Richards has travelled to all 7 continents, watched the sunrise from atop the world’s tallest mountains, and survived an avalanche. If this short video about his life and career doesn’t inspire you, not much will.

A short by PopPhoto for Super Soul Sunday on OWN, it follows Richards through his most grueling tests, tells his life story, and shares some beautiful thoughts on life and “the human family.”

There are no techniques discussed, no gear compared, and no news broken in the five minutes it’ll take you to watch the short video. There is a plethora of amazing photography to oogle at, and a ton of inspiration to send you into the weekend buzzing. Enjoy.
