In the world of action sports photography, female shooters are few and far between. One of the few women in action sports photography who is not only surviving but thriving these days is Mirja Geh, who captures a range of action sports from ski divers to extreme skiers to base jumpers.

In this video interview with Red Bull Illume, Geh talks about competing against men as an action sports photographer and how she sometimes can use her feminine charms to her advantage.

"It can sometimes get you access to other areas where male photographers [can't go]. Maybe if you just talk a little to the security guys," she says in the video with a wink.
