Corey Rich

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 and sharing knowledge with the next generation of story-tellers through various workshops, lectures, and other online courses. He lives with his wife, Marina, daughter, Leila, and dog, Preta, in South Lake Tahoe for the world-class climbing, biking, skiing, and incredible community of passionate people who live here. 

I use everything from SanDisk Flash Drives to move data around the office, and San-Disk Extreme Pro memory cards with various cameras I own. SanDisk and G-tech products offer fast, reliable, best-in-class products that are important to my work as a director, filmmaker, and photographer.

Adventure sports, including rock climbing, mountain biking, mountaineering, kayaking, ultra-running, skiing, and more. For me, the sweet spot is when I’m outside in an amazing location alongside world-class performers pushing their limits, and I’m in the zone, too—pushing my creativity and trying to capture great storytelling moments.
