Follow travel photographer Joseph Mak as he experiences the vast lands of Mongolia in the dead of winter with his EOS 5D Mark IV. This episode sees him exploring the country’s capital, Ulan Bator, before venturing out into the open wilderness.

From rolling plains blanketed by snow, to the majestic mountain ranges of the Altai region, Mongolia stretches across an area thrice the size of France. It is a country of contrasts - where the concrete skyscrapers of its capital Ulan Bator can barely be seen through thick fumes from burning coal, while its wilderness basks untainted under the glory of the winter sun.

Though breathtaking, the climate out in the wild is unforgiving. Summers blister at 40 degrees Celsius and winters freeze at minus 30, a true test of endurance for both man and equipment. 

EOS 5D Mark IV, EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM lens, 21mm, ISO100, 1/100sec, f/20

Revel in the undisturbed beauty of one of Asia’s most unspoiled territories and experience a world like you’ve never imagined. Welcome to the wilds of Mongolia.

About the Author

Joseph Mak

Photography is not just about having the best equipment or the latest gadget. It’s about seeing things around us. Everyone has a different perspective of things, and each views the same subject matter differently. It is always very interesting to see the different perspectives recorded in photographs, and I will always try to understand what story each photographer is trying to tell from their photographs. My style of photography is to keep it simple and clean. The key element in the photo is to be able to tell a story of the scene. Photography is an art of visual storytelling, rather than snapping a photo by itself.

Every photographer ought to be respected for the work they produce, because each photograph taken by them reflects his own unique personality.
