Krystle Wright is an adventure sports photographer from Queensland, Australia, although she now lives a semi-nomadic lifestyle in her quest to capture and present unique moments from extreme sports, expeditions, and adventures across the globe.
Whether she’s camping on a frozen fjord for a month in the Arctic with 23 BASE jumpers, paragliding in the Karakoram Range in Pakistan or sleeping on the back of a yacht on the Great Barrier Reef, Krystle strives to pursue fresh challenges, to seek out undiscovered layers and dimensions in her work, and is recognized for her creativity, composition, and an indomitable spirit in the face of adversity.
Krystle is known for pushing herself to extremes, sometimes beyond what might even be considered sane. Anything to get that elusive, compelling shot. The world has no boundaries and she will do whatever it takes to shoot from her unique perspective – whether hanging from precarious positions on remote cliff edges, swimming through jagged, unexplored canyons, or trudging for days through vicious, baleful weather. It’s about that final experience – capturing a fleeting moment, sharing a treasured insight, telling incredible stories about impassioned endeavours that might otherwise go undocumented. She has battle scars – enough to compete with the most hardened adventurer – to prove it.
