What makes extreme sports photography different and demanding is in most cases the environment and the weather conditions.
Most of what I photograph is in the mountains. There is always a lot of hiking involved while carrying a big pack of equipment. In many cases you will only have the one chance to get the shot your after.
The extremes in the weather is something that is extremely challenging however can also bring some of the most rewarding photographs. A storm might roll in and you will be shooting in heavy rain or snow and then suddenly the sun will emerge for a moment and you can get some really interesting dynamics between sports participate, light and location. Sometimes the most difficult shooting conditions will also great a a very dramatic mood and story throughout your photographs which will give the views a great sense of what the true conditions were like for all the people involved.
