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.”
