What are you willing to endure to capture the shot of a lifetime? Well, if you’re anything like photographer Joshua Holko, it’s just another day in the office when you are stuck in a foxhole shooting in subzero temperature for ten days.
To promote his upcoming Arctic Fox Project, Holko shared a behind the scenes video showing what its like shooting the small creatures. In the 37-second video, we see Holko nestled inside a foxhole he’s dug into the snow while the wind is blowing 15 meters per second (roughly 33.5 MPH) and the outside temperature –18º Celsius (approximately 0º Fahrenheit).
As impressive as it is that Holko somehow manages to stay warm, I’m also amazed how well the Canon 1D X appears to hold up despite being pounded with snow and freezing rain. Goes to show just how far DSLR technology has come.
A longer behind the scenes is in the making and can be found at Holko’s website.
