Photographer for “Warrior Woman,”
Destiny: Ian Spanier has had a camera since he was 6. “I tried not to be a photographer, but it always seemed to come around,” he says. “When I was in college, I wanted to be a trainer for a pro sports team.” But he found himself spending more time in the darkroom than in the training room.
Get That Shot: “I don’t have that click in my brain that tells me not do something,” he says. “I have hung backward off a cliff, landed on aircraft carriers, worked inside a pen with two wild wolves and entered a shark cage with 15 circling great whites. I love what I do, and sometimes that eclipses the situation.”
