Cheers Dan, looking forward to some new stuff! And where would forums be without the odd troll?

Behind the Lens - Dan Milner
Thanks @dietersanchez. haven't been back to Peru since that 1989 trip - was a bit chaotic (and dangerous) there then, but an amazing place. Yeah starting out and trying to make a living as a photographer is tough. It starts as a love thing, rather than a money-thing. Its a good way to start - you're full of passion for what you're doing. Too many pro photographers close that side, but then again you have to make a living too. Interesting point about the $1k per shot. Yes it happens, and that is how pro photographers can make a living. It's not $1k per shot, every shot though (I wish!), and we don't need to justify it. Quality images need good gear and sharp lenses (which aren't cheap as you well know), and then there's insurance, a lot of kit repairs, a lot of travel expenses and more. Pro fees reflect not only this, but also the amount of experience they have built up over the years - the ability to shoot and get reliable, aspirational, sharp and creative results whatever the conditions and demands, when a less experienced photographer might struggle. If you are on a project that is costing the client $100k you have to stand up to the pressure and deliver the results.

Nepal is among my top places to visit, hands down. I don't need much of an excuse to go back anytime! It should be on everyone's to-visit (and to-ride) list - great people, fantastic landscapes, amazing (veggie) food. Nepal has had a hard time over the years, and it deserves our support. Go there and ride.

Thanks, it was a great excuse to share some insight with people. I'm looking at doing a bike photo workshop too, to share a bit more of the ideas and techniques in how to make photos more aesthetic. Yeah, the Peak shot - its a fave of mine too, purely from the aesthetic aspect. Who'd have thought a simple shot like that would have the same appeal as a rugged mountain in Nepal eh?

Thanks. Yes the Ninja was a kind of sideline, mostly filming them on GoPro's while I photographed an adventure somewhere ridiculously daft. Then it grew way out of proportion, and drifted off into the weird and wonderful (how about that Ivan the wolf-hunter one eh? WTF?). Hey thats what happens if you give me a free reign. It was time to get back to reality!

Ah humour is a very personal thing, and my own brand is certainly not everyone's. Thats what makes me weird. Couple of new vids in the pipeline and being prep'd for the trolls, ha ha.

Thanks @bikekrieg, the book idea is always on my mind (and I hope I'll get around to it) - so many stories and anecdotes to go with 30 years of photos. Theres plenty of my writing already out there both in a print mag near you and online - for example check out my recent Lebanon trip story on bikemag of starters.

I remember that day Charlie. What a blast - you in suspect tiny hiking shorts and tennis shoes on the rental bike, us on our Yeti's and full enduro gear and you still whipped our asses. That descent is top ten in the world, or at least my world, whoever I ride it with.

The Ninj' ran its course and had to lie down for a rest. I have some other fun projects in the often-misunderstood-and-less-than-appreciated video pipeline, but for the moment its mostly all about my main job photography. Keep an eye out and thanks for liking it all.

Matt Hunter Explores Patagonia - Video
@slyfink: The volcano part was 3 day remote traverse on a 100Km long trekking trail that I discovered and have been waiting for years to go back and ride. Look for the magazine stories out soon in MBUk, Bike Germany, Cranked, Solo Bici, Velo, Spoke, Vojo and more to get the full scoop on this amazing adventure.
