It’s the new year, and one of the bit things coming up is the Everest Trek in May 2014. On this tour Chris, Jon and Monika will take photographers up to Everest Base Camp, through the gorgeous Gokyo valley and as it gets closer, participants are starting to have more questions, about Kathmandu, about travel, about what paperwork is needed, questions how to get around, about what photo gear to bring, about altitude and how that influences your body.. just lots of questions.
To answer some of the questions, Chris invited Jon Miller of The Rest of Everest – and Peter, Chris’ brother for a chat. Peter will be on this year’s Everest Trek and he is the one who will ask the questions.
Chris has a question about hyperfocal distance and the thirds rule of thumbs, Dave loves analog photography, German asks about lenses and Chad from Australia sends Chris on a virtual research trip because he wants to shoot northern lights.
Chris talks about the Everest Trek experience, on how to manage without electricity for 10 days, on shooting video with the 5DMk2 and the Kodak zi8, and handling 150GB of image storage while hiking at almost 18,000ft elevation.
