Ryan “Huggy” Hughes is the Photo Editor of SNOWBOARDER Magazine. He has an odd obsession with the movie MacGruber. So much so that his friends have been calling him Hugruber for over a year, and it is his instagram name (follow @hugruber). An obsessive personality is quite common among photographers–maybe that is what drives them to GTS.  You’ll see a photographer previewing photos on the back of their camera again and again; there is always another angle that might be better. That is what keeps things fun out there–tromping up and down hillsides looking for that perfect gap between the trees where there is a little blue sky.
