Ken and Andre are back in Alaska with Episode 2 of Tamron's Unofficial Field Guide Season 4. Since they started the series a few years ago, we've shared every episode from past seasons as they travel around the country capturing great images while working with some of the best gear in photography, visiting some spectacular locations and working with some of the finest artists in photo.
By the way, that's Charlie Voorhis in the back seat hanging out with them. Charlie is an outstanding filmmaker and also a Tamron Image Master. He's no stranger to SCU and was featured in a post last year.
Ken and Andre are shooting with the SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 lens which is a fantastic piece of glass. And, as they mention in the video, using a crop-sensor camera, they're effectively at 900mm! The lens is also part of Tamron's current Instant Rebate program. Just click the banners below for more information.
In the meantime, enjoy this short video below, as the industry's odd couple travel Alaska. And, if you're at a convention/conference when these two are in the Tamron booth, wander over and introduce yourself. They're great guys, terrific photographers and educators and passionate about helping artists raise the bar on their skill set!
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
