For ten years, going back to the 90's we had a group of photographers who went into Yellowstone every winter. We spent three days on snowmobiles touring the park with enough camera gear to open our own retail store! It was one of those experiences that only a handful of people in the world get to see. I feel so fortunate to have been there for nine of the ten trips.
This week Tamron USA posted the video below featuring the NEW 18-400mm lens with Ken Hubbard traveling through Yellowstone. I know it's an infomercial, but it's really a travel log with Ken as our guide. I love the way he ties in some of the features of the lens together with the actual images he's capturing.
If you've never been to Yellowstone it needs to be on your bucket list. And, like we did each the winter, or Ken talks about each morning being up ahead of the tourists, the serenity of the park gives you a true appreciation of its beauty.
You can't help but be impressed with the technology behind this new lens. It's the world's first ultra telephoto all-in-one zoom lens. I loved the approach Ken took in this video and the amount of great content he packed into just five minutes.

After watching the video and thinking about Ken's ability to demonstrate the product while traveling through the park all I can say is, "When I grow up I want to be Ken Hubbard!"
