Chris talks with videographer Jon Miller of The Rest of Everest about his latest tool to gather amazing footage: a quadrocopter that is capable of carrying motion-stabilized cameras and can fly at the high elevation of Mt. Everest Base Camp. In their discussion Chris and Jon touch on everything form the technology and how to get started with flying one of these for far below $1000, the legalities of commercial drone flying and about the potential for controversy that these flying cameras have with some people.
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.
An intimate look at a very unique photo event: After Dark. Chris Marquardt attended this year’s St. Louis event as a mentor and Jon Miller (The Rest of Everest) was there to film and make this wonderful video.
