Podcast 317 : An Interview with Dan & David Newcomb

Article from Martin Bailey Photography

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.

They are also about to release a new video called “The Great Reno Balloon Race” that they’re creating in 4K video, and 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, and I’ve taken a look and was very impressed. I’ll be embedding this video below too, once it’s released, but you can also subscribe to Dan and David’sYouTube Channel to receive an email when it’s posted.

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