Guest: Jack Nichols, Photographer and Extreme Ironing Record Holder Perched on the edge of a waterfall, dangling upside down on a climbing wall, straddling a tree trunk thirty feet up – there has to be an easier way to get your shirt pressed. But “extreme ironing” isn’t just about getting the wrinkles out. It’s about the challenge – and the great photo opp. Photographer Jack Nichols specializes in stunning capturing hard-to-reach landscapes and he usually brings an iron along, too. He’s got the North American record for lowest-elevation extreme ironing.
