David Keochkerian is the photographer behind one of our most popular posts to date, a peek inside his bag and some spectacular images he shot on the North coast of France. Because you dig his work so much, we asked to see more of his images and hear some insight into how he works.
Teva has recently launched the #Unfollow campaign, celebrating the release of their new shoe, Tevasphere. The campaign slogan is “for those who choose the unknown, the unexpected, the life less traveled” and to fit that bill, they’re featuring the life and work of adventure photographer Chris Burkard.
“There’s nothing like being able to be waiting for the sunrise,” he says in the video, “one camera, a tripod, and just being able to go wherever my two feet take me.”
Photographer David Keochkerian was drawn to Ambleteuse on the northern coast of France, not only for its beauty, but also for its history.
Henry VIII of England built two forts there. In a couple of years, they were taken over by Henry II of France. Later, Napoleon created a harbor there and during World War II, Vichy France built bunkers and a concentration camp on the site. What follows is Keochkerian’s recollections of his recent shoot there.
Robby Ticknor has posted a video review of his Induro CT114 tripod. In it, he shows off the functionality of this carbon fiber model, collapsing the legs, extending the center column, all the while showing how effortlessly these everyday tasks can be done.
Ticknor shows off the toolkit, carrying bag, and replacement tips for the legs when shooting on snow or ice. He also demonstrates the hook at the bottom of the center column, showing how you can add weight for extra stability. The center column is quickly disassembled to show how you can get a very low, yet stable shooting angle just barely off the ground.
In closing, Ticknor comments on the strength of the carbon fiber. “Check out Induro tripods,” he says. “They’re good quality and I’ve been happy with mine.”
Thanks much for your efforts on putting together your comprehensive video, Robby. You can see more of Ticknor’s work on his site.
