Rich is an avid rock climber and on this video you can understand why he is such a great climbing photographer. There are a lot of things to keep in mind when shooting rock climbing – safety is of course number one, but after you make sure you are safe you need to worry about a few other things.

Here are the basic tips that Rich gives in this short video – asses your location, be creative, understand the technical aspects of your gear and come up with a composition that will best serve the story that you are trying to convey.
