Corey Richards and Adrian Ballinger Take Expedition Journalism to Next Level
On May 24, 2016, alpinist and adventure photojournalist Cory Richards summited Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen. But what made the expedition a standout to much of the world was the fact that he and climbing partner Adrian Ballinger (who failed to summit, turning back at the 8,480-meter mark) shared the expedition in real time using Snapchat. The resulting Snapumentary series #EverestNoFilter marked the first time a guide or athlete team has given an exclusive, unfiltered view of what it's like to climb the world's tallest mountain. Hundreds of thousands of viewers tuned in each day. Adrian and Ballinger also regularly posted to their Instagram accounts, using new satellite technology to provide a 360-degree view of life on expedition.
