GENOA, Nev. (KOLO)-- South Lake Tahoe photographer Corey Rich speaks Sunday in Genoa about his new book “Stories Behind the Images” and will have a book signing.

The event will be at 6:30 p.m. in Genoa Town Hall at 2287 Main St. in Genoa.

The book focuses on 56 images from Rich’s career. He has a background in photojournalism and photography, particularly adventure photography. He began shooting rock climbing in the mid 1990s before it was a well-known sport. His subjects included climbing legend Chris Sharma, kayaking pioneer Eric Jackson and world champion surfer Lisa Anderson.

He worked on projects with Anheuser-Busch, Apple, Columbia Sportswear, Discovery, Energizer, Ford, Mazda, NBC, New Mexico Tourism, Nevada Tourism, Nike, Nikon, The North Face and Patagonia. His work has appeared on close to 100 magazine covers, including the New York Times Magazine, Sports Illustrated and National Geographic. Rich is a Nikon ambassador.

“I chose to live in one of America's great outdoor playgrounds for its skiing, climbing and biking opportunities because I believe that living in a place that inspires your passions directly translates into doing the best work of your life,” the South Lake Tahoe resident said in a press release about the event.

The event is sponsored by Visit Carson Valley and the Town of Genoa. It includes no-host cocktails, a book signing, Rich’s presentation and questions and answers. There is also a raffle. Admission is free and online reservations are encouraged. All proceeds benefit The Boys and Girls Club of Western Nevada Carson Valley Branch.
