What does it take to be an adventure photographer? Quarrier notes that “you need stamina, expert skills in a sport, and the ability to work under extreme conditions, often with a team. You’re the last to bed and the first to rise. Your free time is spent downloading and organizing thousands of photos and videos. The role can be both physically and creatively draining.
For female adventure photographers, it can also be a challenge to break into this male-dominated niche.”
