Snow Monkeys & Hokkaido with David duChemin (Podcast 362)

David in Hokkaido

06 Mar Snow Monkeys & Hokkaido with David duChemin (Podcast 362)

I usually record an update after returning from the Snow Monkeys and Hokkaido tour each year, and insert a recording from the bus on the last day of each trip as well as my own reflections on our trip. For Tour #2 this year though, we were lucky enough to be joined by best selling author and amazing photographer David duChemin, so instead of just me talking this time, we sat down (via Skype) and had a candid chat about the time together.

There are also download and subscription options at the end of the post.

As this was an unscripted discussion, there is no transcript for today’s episode, but here are some of David’s images, that we talk about during our conversation, as well as one of my Whooper Swan shots, that I specifically called out towards the end.

    Very nice! Wonderful postcards from David. I didn’t really catch: what kind of lens did you use to shoot the wildlife? I didn’t read on David site he uses anything above 300mm. You rock Martin, very long and professionally performed podcast.

      Thanks Eric!

      For the wildlife, we both used the 300mm f/2.8 a lot, often with the 1.4X Extender fitted.

      Cheers,
      Martin.

        Thanks Martin, it’s really more accessible than African safaris!
