I just got back from the Arctic and I see that my images have made a couple of cover stories in major magazines. Also had a few other editors have committed to our pricing arrangements for images that will be published as both Articles and Covers in the coming weeks.

Then today I got a (promo piece) from a film maker in Los Angeles.
These folks are making a film about working in the Arctic and Climate Change.

Doug...
that is really "cool"...
You had written quite some time ago that your D300 froze up
but your D200 kept working.
Was that for the entire time you were there or did the D300 ever
become workable?
Curious why the D300 would freeze up and not the D200 also...
Really nice promo...the film will most certainly be worth viewing.
And congratulations on the covers and articles!

Very cool video! I'm not one for cold weather but it surely looks like a lot of fun; what a beautiful untouched world!

Why the rifle? To ward off any polar bears that get a little too curious?

Hi Doug,

Welcome home!

Be sure to post links to the magazine articles when they are available.

Nan & I head north on August 14, hope it is warmer than when they shot the video!

My thinking here is you have the model numbers a little mixed up as I don't shoot with a D300 and only use D200's, D40x's and D3's
That being said, the D200 had a freezing issue when the temps got very cold. (-50 and lower). The D3 works the best of the lot without question but that is what one would expect.
Hope this helps

Doug

Pretty Cool Doug. Are you gonna do a book?

Hello:
One of the major reasons I've been on this project is to create a photo book at the end. You can read more about it here:

That's a neat video, and my congratulations on your excellent work and for receiving the recognition that you deserve.

I did find the sound track on the video very objectionable and quickly turned it off. The background sounds drown out the commentary. But that's just one man's opinion, and I know it was not your doing.
