Varanasi, India: “Beyond”

Varanasi, India: “Beyond”

“BEYOND” is an exclusive documentary featuring photographer Joey L. Set in Varanasi, India. The documentary by filmmaker Cale Glendening follows Joey and his assistant Ryan as they complete their latest photo series- “Holy Men.”

Almost every major religion breeds ascetics; wandering monks who have renounced all earthly possessions, dedicating their lives to the pursuit of spiritual liberation.Their reality is dictated only by the mind, not material objects. Even death is not a fearsome concept, but a passing from the world of illusion.

Byron: in timelapses and slow motion

Byron: in timelapses and slow motion

I’ve been in Byron Bay (Australia) many times, specially lately, but I always left my cameras behind, at home, why? because when I go to Byron, I just want to relax and forget about work… but, I can’t avoid the temptation of taking a camera and filming something. So I did it, but with an Iphone 5C and with a GoPro Hero3.

This short film is a mixed of time lapses and slow motions about that part of Australia that I love so much, from the coast to the hinterland;, from Byron to Ballina.

My reflection; I always, as some of you, want the latest amazing camera or lenses or tripod or… whatever for my professional and personal projects. But this time is different: this is the first time I use just an Iphone 5 and a GoPro Hero3 and I have to say that I’m pretty happy with the result. So… at the end, is it all about equipment? What I mean by that is: Do you really need that latest, amazing, expensive equipment or can you do something cool with what you already got?


Cameras: Iphone 5C and GoPro Hero3 + Different apps for the Iphone

Coast of Arabia

Coast of Arabia

Travelogue of the various landscapes I encountered in Oman, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi. My goal was to capture the startling visual contrasts: from barren to lush, anceint to ultra-modern. I wanted to show some of the lesser-known corners of a region with a complex personality.

Shot on Canon 5dmkIII with Magic Lantern Raw.
