Krystle Wright is an accomplished adventure sports photographer based in Queensland, Australia. However, she now lives a semi-nomadic lifestyle in her quest to capture and present unique moments from extreme sports, expeditions, and adventures across the globe.
Whether she’s camping on a frozen fjord for a month in the Arctic with 23 BASE jumpers, paragliding in the Karakoram Range in Pakistan, or sleeping on the back of a yacht on the Great Barrier Reef, Krystle is known for pushing herself to extremes, sometimes beyond what might even be considered sane.
Anything to get that elusive, compelling shot – whether hanging from precarious positions on remote cliff edges, swimming through jagged, unexplored canyons, or trudging for days through vicious, baleful weather.
In this session from the Women Blaze Trails festival, Krystle takes us through a series of her photographs – from sports photography to shots of extreme weather for her film Chasing Monsters – and talks about her approach to photography, how her adventures are funded, the power of getting the perfect shot, and tips for fellow shutterbugs and aspiring photographers.
