Live your dream and come to the Yukon!
Here is a teaser I made with pictures I took during the Yukon Quest 2018!
Last week, I was involved as an official video/photographer in the Yukon Quest 2018! I had to shoot footage in extreme cold conditions (-45°!) and that was not easy. During the first 24 hours, I broke my monopod and my tripod: the plastic parts broke under extreme cold and wet weather above the Yukon River in Dawson city.
After 10mn all electronic device slow down and my camera screen had a 2sec delay…
If you have to go OUT/IN many times, don’t forget to put your camera and lenses in plastic bag, so that condensation will stay outside the plastic bag and won’t freeze your lens.
Last important thing: don’t forget to open hand warmers one hour before you’ll take pictures. Your fingers will need some!
Amazing pictures taken on Kusawa lake by -40°!
After Marine, I made a video about Gaetan Pierrard, a musher who took part in the Yukon Quest two times. He lives in Medenhall Subdivision which is about one hour from Whitehorse in the Yukon. This video is a first episode and I am already working on a second one. I hope you will enjoy the landscapes and the slowmotion shots!
Here is my first video about dog sledding. As a veterinarian with experience in sled dog races and living in the Yukon I had to do one! But it won’t be the last one! Thanks to Marine Gastard and Michael Capelli for this amazing day of shooting!
