Set the scene- It’s early morning at Canada’s largest church, the birds are tweeting peacefully, there’s a light frosting of snow on the trees, there’s a security guard running down the steps shouting and chasing a snowboarder. That’s how it went down for Hugo Dubé-Bouchard and his photographer Jaysson Gallant when they decided to get a shot at the iconic Saint Josephs Oratory while visiting Montreal.
The Oratory is one of Montreals biggest and most beautiful tourist traps, so the lads knew it was always gonna be a high risk-high reward kinda deal. The boys decided to hit the spot as early as possible to try and minimise the amount of people that would be there and give them the largest possible of opportunity to bag the shot. The Oratory is constantly monitored so getting shots here previously had proven near impossible.
