Central New York and the rest of the world is all abuzz about Erin Hamlin going down in Olympic history but there's another local Erin deserving of accolades too. Erin Covey grew up in New Hartford, is based in Connecticut now and whipping up photographic awesomeness in every way possible from shooting weddings and portraits to photojournalism. But when we're paid to do what we love, what happens when we strip the compensation away and just do it for the pure unadulterated joy of our art?
