Canadian action sports photographer Erin Hogue shoots with snowboarding's superstars and lands cover shots. But these successes wouldn't happen if she hadn't committed to buying a sled, getting up before dawn every day, and traveling into the backcountry to shoot until dusk.
In this vignette presented by Toronto's The Creator Class, Hogue explains why she made the plunge, despite the protestations from friends and other photographers about shooting in the backcountry.
Hogue describes how photography is an addiction. Once she starts shooting, she keeps collecting images until the day ends. The Creator Class followed Hogue into the backcountry to shoot, among others, Marie France-Roy.
