When you want to create snowboarding content, your brain is probably going to work at a mile a minute. Should you take a Point of View video of yourself doing “corks,” or should you rather strap your iPhone on someone else who'd probably do an even better job?  What if you can do it all?! (And take these accessories from your previous Ski trip).

This is one of the more laid-back ways to really get the most out of your winter. You get to take pictures of animals in their natural habitat, without leaving the finding of these animals to happenstance. To know that you're half a frozen lake away from seeing some beautiful wildlife like deer, red foxes, coyotes and some cute little geese. At that moment, you might be a little too startled to get some HQ images, so what do you use?

While snowmobiles, just like cars, can be used for transportation, and work, just like cars, there are advantages to mounting a camera on your snowmobile and seeing what happens... If you've ever wondered what something or someone looks like at a totally different vantage point when you're with your family and want to head into the mountains to get a different perspective on things, these accessories are a key point.

“Hockey is one of the most difficult sports to shoot because the action on the ice is moving so quickly. Unlike other sports, photographers cannot move with the play." - Joseph Nuzzo, Photographer

Word, Mr Nuzzo. Word.

But have you SEEN what you can do with your iPhone when it has the right accessories, though?
