"If Josh and I didn't connect on a human level, it would've been a disastrous shoot," says 37-year-old Tehrani of being paired up with Joshua Paul in Brooklyn's DUMBO neighborhood. "But we hit the streets, and whenever someone was inspired, it was like, ‘Put your camera down, I want to shoot you.' " Tehrani, who also calls Brooklyn home, rarely has it so easy. While on assignment for Outside, he's been chased out of a South African cave by a swarm of hornets and a wild boar, and dodged crocodiles and Gaboon vipers in Gabon. "People always say, ‘You've got the most killer job,' " Tehrani says. "It's true, I love it. But it's not like we're just swinging on vines in the jungle. You've got to be on your toes every step of the way."
