Meet Kalispell, Montana photographer Craig Moore. Though Craig has his hands in everything from website development to wedding photography, the bulk of his work is derived from adventure photography. Living about 25 miles from Glacier National Park, on any given day you might find Craig with his camera capturing a nearly impossible ski jump, alongside a backpacker, or fighting river rapids to photograph a daring boater.
In his 'down' time, Craig heads farther out into wild Montana to hunt elk where temperatures at night reach a low of -35F, with a wind chill of -70F. When I asked him about the presence of grizzlies as he headed out to the wild over Thanksgiving, he simply said, "Ya tons of griz." I guess one can't be bothered by the thought of a few grizzlies if he makes his living photographing extreme sports.
Though I would have liked to meet Craig out there in wild Montana (minus the grizzlies, of course), we were only able to chat via Skype. He gave me permission, however, to use some of his stellar photos as a backdrop for his interview.
Craig's passion for his job is clearly evident as he explains that his job on earth is to capture everything around him. And, as a savvy businessman, Craig encourages all photographers to hold closely to them the rights to their photos.
