Well, in the intro to this podcast, Sarah and Kristen said they would be elevating the voice of the everyday adventurer. Instead, they jumped in at the deep end with an awesome conversation with world class Australian Adventure Photographer and Director, Krystle Wright. Sarah and Kristen speak to Krystle from her current home base on the Sunshine Coast, before she embarks on a solo mission across Australia to one of her dream locations, The Kimberley, in her newly decked out LandCruiser. Sarah and Kristen talk all things solo and team adventure; risk; travel; the “5 types of fun” and the reset that the global pandemic has offered a typically nomadic, international professional photographer and adventurer. You can find Krystle online and see her incredible work at @krystlejwright on Instagram and www.krystlewright.com
Regarded as one of the world’s leading female extreme adventure photographers, Krystle Wright is always pushing the limits of her craft. Also a cinematographer and director, she gave up city living to pursue her dream and hasn't looked back. Her personal desire for adrenaline and passion for paragliding almost cost her her life in a serious accident in Pakistan in 2013. On this episode she talks about the reward of going the extra mile for a great story or image, and she shares how draining her profession and lifestyle can be at times and how she had to readjust to being stuck at home and unable to travel the globe during the pandemic. This Episode of Talking Australia is hosted by Liz Ginis (Managing Editor Digital at Australian Geographic) and produced by Ben Kanthak (www.beachshackpodcasts.com).

Adventure photographer, director, filmmaker, Canon ambassador, and all around bad ass Krystle Wright returns to the podcast to talk about her three most current short films "Chasing Monsters", "In Perpetual Motion", and "A Restless Peace" (Links Below). Make sure to check out Krystle's original appearance on the show back on episode #52 to hear the story of how she got started. During this conversation we discuss what it was like trying to create three new films for Canon over the course of three years, putting together creative teams and knowing how to let them help guide her in expressing her own vision, what it was like chasing storms through "Tornado Ally" with the most recent guest of the show Nick Moir, trying to create films that have more space to breathe and interpret the imagery instead of always needing to let the audience know what you are saying, her thoughts on the current state of "like driven" content on social media, and what's next for her as she continues to evolve as an artist.
