As a snowboard photographer, your travels and adventures parallel the subjects you shoot, which obviously puts you into incredible scenarios to capture all the action. At times, the surroundings and lifestyle shots can be more monumental than the actual riding. Other times a single pow spray can make the entire trip. A photographer that has been on the hustle for years and always delivers the goods is Andrew Miller. Last season, he was entrenched in Haines, Alaska with the Absinthe crew while filming, AfterForever, and Nicolas Muller who was filming Fruition.
