Krystle Wright Captures the Magic of the Ocean
Shooting life above, below, and on the ocean
Krystle Wright got the photography bug while growing up in Queensland, on Australia’s northeast coast. At 18, she spent her life savings on underwater housing for her camera, hoping to become a surf photographer. “It was the best thing I ever did,” says the 30-year-old. “I would just go out in any conditions and shoot.” Photographing in heavy surf proved harder than it looked. “The first time I shot with a water houser, I head-butted the sand,” she says. As she grew more comfortable in the water, she turned her focus to other subjects, like paragliding in Pakistan’s Karakoram Range and BASE jumpers in Moab, Utah. Today, Wright—a freediver, skier, and climber—keeps her belongings in a shipping container in Queensland and travels 11 months of the year on commercial expeditions and assignments for magazines like Outside and National Geographic. More than a decade later, though, the ocean is still one of her favorite environments to work in. “Shooting in the water is always different—it’s never the same thing twice,” she says. —Will Ford
