Get a more in-depth view at shooting wildlife in Hokkaido, Japan and listen to Chris talk about equipment, culture, washlets, video, cranes, snow monkeys, white-tailed eagles, steller’s sea eagles, big lenses and of course how to deal with the cold conditions, both for yourself and in terms of your gear.
Pauline asks Chris to explain how and why he chooses the pictures for the episodes of this show, Rafael has a question about how much sharpening you should apply to your images and Jon Miller comes on the show to discuss the next Himalayan Workshop.
I often make the group shot part of the actual workshop as opposed to it just being an add-on. This way the group can see the photo from inception to completion and be part of the process rather than just having their picture taken. The theme was urban, so we decided to use a parking garage as our set.

In August 2012, ten people met in Toronto to celebrate one of the most magic ways of making photographs: with a 4×5 (and an 8×10) camera, using film. They spent three days to learn and explore every facet of the large format, from portraiture to landscape and architecture, from tilt and swing to rise and fall, from push to pull and from beginner to expert. This is the full version of the video.
