Podcast 317 : An Interview with Dan & David Newcomb

Many of you let me know how much you enjoyed our Interview with MBP Community member Graham Morgan in episode 305, and some people asked me to do more, so today, I am really pleased to bring to a chat with Dan Newcomb. Dan has been an active member of the community for many years now, and almost every month helps to keep the standard of the images entered to our Photography Assignment incredibly high.

Dan is not only an amazingly talented photographer, but along with his brother David, they create incredibly Time Lapse videos which they share on their YouTube channel. Vancouver City went viral, and has had almost 2 million views as of January 2012, and remains one of my favorite videos when I have a few minutes to sit and relax.

And below is Dan & David’s new video called “The Great Reno Balloon Race”. They created this in 3D, so if you have a 3D TV or some 3D glasses for your computer you can enjoy the video to it’s full. They have also made it available in 2D though, for us mere mortals. You can also subscribe to Dan and David’s YouTube Channel to receive an email when future videos are posted.

Here also are seven of Dan’s photos that we discussed for the first 45 minutes or so of our chat.

    A very interesting podcast Martin with Dan & David. Superb animal shots! And the very rare Lynx.. I just once caught a glimpse of one (gaupe) on a night drive from Oslo to Trondheim 🙂 Thanks for sharing them..

      Thanks for the interest in prints! I don’t usually focus too much on selling prints but if you shoot me an email with the photos you are interested in, I’ll see what I can do. dnewcomb [at] shaw.ca
