A Tribute to Discomfort — As a Photographer, Leave Your Comfort Zone Now

Inspiring stuff by National Geographic photographer Cory Richards. Feel like your photography is stuck and want to bring it to the next level? Well leave your comfort zone. That’s what Richards is telling us in this video “tribute to discomfort.” A school dropout and for the most part homeless, photography became the language to translate what he was seeing around him. Photography became his voice.

Not that you’ll now have to conquer an 8,000-meter peak and survive an avalanche as Richards did. But try to see the message of this video tribute. Anything that put you outside your comfort zone is not only an adventure, it’s something that realigns and recalibrates one’s own focus on life and what matters.

Can’t we all benefit and learn from experiences like Richards’.
