I was talking to the father of one of my daughter’s classmates yesterday. He’s a professional photographer and I was asking him about cameras and photographers I was interested in. I brought up Galen Rowell, how he was one of my inspirations and how I had visited his galleries and read his writings. I told him how I had loved hiking and camping in the Sierras and aspired to take decent adventure photos. My classmate’s father was originally from California and knew of Rowell. He recommended I check out Corey Rich, another photographer that he compared to Rowell in terms of mountaineering skill and adventure photography style.
