Be careful what you ask for! Being an adventure photographer puts you in some interesting situations, sometimes outrageous, sometimes humorous, and other times just plain miserable. Tom will discuss his latest work from photographing a wedding on the side of a cliff to shooting northern lights at 30 below in the high arctic. He will share some tips and tricks to get the shot no matter what happens in the field. And don’t miss how to meet the neighbors by hosing down models in your driveway from the roof!
