A Tribute To Discomfort: Cory Richards

A climber and visual storyteller, Cory Richards was named National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2012 and is part of the North Face athletic team. Cory’s camera has taken him from the controlled and complex studio to the wild and remote corners of the world, from the unclimbed peaks of Antarctica to the Himalayas of Nepal and Pakistan—all in an attempt to capture not only the soul of adventure and exploration, but also the beauty inherent in modern society.

Blue Chalk worked with Cory to create a promotional piece to demonstrate the scope of his work and the passion and athleticism that accompanies him in the field. A Tribute to Discomfort brings the viewer through Cory’s stunning work, his unique sense of humor, and his quest to create photographs that relate a common humanity.

Bob Marley by Dennis Morris

In 1974, Jamaican reggae singer-songwriter Bob Marley met 16-year old photographer Dennis Morris and was immediately taken with him. Over the next 7 years, the two developed a friendship as Bob went on tour and Dennis captured some of the most iconic images of him at concerts, backstage, and between shows.

In this short documentary, Dennis tells the stories behind his famous photographs of Bob, what he learned from his work with him from 1974 to 1981, and his collaboration with contemporary artist Shepard Fairey.

Dear Getty Images: I Quit

“I feel that I’m getting ripped off with Getty’s lousy 20% payout. I don’t care how you look at it, for me, 20% is not fair. It’s too low. I’ve been complaining about it for years, but have just grumbled along because Getty felt like the only game in town for stock photo sales.” – Thomas Hawk
