Corey Rich

Corey Rich is a director and photographer based in South Lake Tahoe, California. His imaginative still and motion work over the last two decades proves that it’s not only possible to achieve Hollywood-grade results with a “small-footprint production” model, but that it often produces better, more authentic visual stories. Rich has worked in everything from photojournalism, to documentary film and television, to high-production commercial projects for major companies, to outdoor lifestyle and adventure still and motion storytelling in some of the wildest and most dangerous locations on the planet. Additionally, Rich is President and co-owner of Novus Select. In addition to being a Nikon Ambassador, Corey is a member of the SanDisk Extreme Team, and a professional partner with AquaTech, FreeFly, G-Technology, Kessler, Lite Panels, Lowepro, Manfrotto, and SmallHD. With a passion for teaching and learning, Rich is on the Visual Journalism Advisory Board at Brooks Institute, co-founder and lead instructor of the Summit Series Adventure Photography Workshop, member of the Rowell Legacy Committee and on The Rowell Award for the Art of Adventure judging panel. Some of Rich’s clients include Anheuser-Busch, Apple, Columbia Sportswear, Discovery, Energizer, Ford, Mazda, NBC, New Mexico Tourism, Nevada Tourism, Nike, Nikon, The North Face and Patagonia.  ... read more

    The content is good for beginners and Corey is able to share some valuable ideas; I liked his idea of taking pictures and discussed the elements that he does not like it. It was worth my time for sure. Respectfully

    None of these were 'GREAT' as per the title of the video. Why would you stick a wide angle a foot away from the model's face? Seems to be obsessed with feet too.

    Great and simple course. Corey goes through the fundamentals of preparing for and walking through a shoot without overcomplicating things. Points out overlooked mistakes and the adjustments he makes to correct them. Recommend this course if you're a beginner or in need of ideas on how to work and be creative in a limited space as well as working with the room.
