Recently Ugo bought a couple flight tickets to Japan, a country he will be visiting for the first time this year. Wanting to learn more about the place and how to photograph it best, he naturally thought of the photographers he knows that are intimately familiar with it?
Looking at the list of past guests of this podcast, it is obvious that Martin Bailey is the expert, when it comes to Japan, having lived in Tokyo for many years.
Martin is a nature and wildlife photographer based in Tokyo. He’s a pioneering podcaster and blogger, Capture One Ambassador and X-Rite Coloratti member. Fueled by his passion for nature and travel, and a tireless desire to share his knowledge and artistic vision, Martin is a popular international tour & workshop leader, helping photographers from around the world to experience and capture the wonders of this awesome planet we call home.
Ugo and Ralph interviewed Martin about all things Japanese, most notably about the abundant wildlife and spectacular landscapes of Hokkaido, an island where Martin leads photo tours multiple times a year.
In the end, there was also time to talk about a curious incident that happened to Martin in Morocco and that might serve as a cautionary tale for anyone traveling to that otherwise wonderful country with lots of photographic equipment.
Duration 1h 3m 52s.
