Adventure photographer at college: South Shore’s Corey Rich will sign new book Saturday at LTCC

It's just another day at the office for photographer Corey Rich.

Adventure photographer Corey Rich will speak and hold a free book signing this Saturday at Lake Tahoe Community College auditorium at 7 p.m.

Rich joined forces with journalist Jason Paur to create “My Favorite Place,” in which 15 champion adventure athletes share their most cherished U.S. outdoor spots.

Rich said “My Favorite Place” uses heart-stopping photography, profiles of the athletes and amusing field notes to create an intimate look at the relationship between the adventurer and the landscape.

Rich is an adventure sports/action photographer who has traveled the world on assignment for Sports Illustrated, Outside, Men’s Journal, National Geographic Adventure, Anheuser-Busch, Nike, Patagonia, and The North Face, among others. He lives in South Lake Tahoe.

Jason Paur is a journalist who works in both radio and print. He is a frequent contributor to National Public Radio and magazines such as Outside and National Geographic Adventure. He lives in Seattle.

The book features the favorite places of America’s top adventure athletes.

From the Vermont forest where Olympic medalist Bill Koch has been cross-country skiing for more than thirty years; to the glacier-covered volcano in the Pacific Northwest where mountaineer Ed Viesturs learned the techniques that would take him to the summit of Mount Everest; to the Florida beach where pioneering four-time world championship surfer Lisa Anderson learned to surf and returns with her 11-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son; to the Tennessee river where kayaker Eric Jackson goes with his wife and 13-year-old daughter to practice air loops for his next river kayaking world championship, America is one long stretch of favorite places.
