Seattle in Motion

Seattle in Motion

This video was created from around 3600 individual photos shot in the spring, summer, and fall of 2012.

After several years and hundreds of sequences of traditional time lapse, I was looking for a way to challenge myself and grow. I started learning to capture in the motion time lapse (hyperlapse) technique, where I move the camera slightly –usually around 12 inches (~30 cm) — for hundreds of times (between every interval). This creates an artificial parallax, and it was exciting to explore this new way of thinking, seeing, moving, and capturing.

At first, I was doing hand-held captures and moving between each shot, but after a while I began using a tripod and moving that along a path, so that I could drag the shutter and get more of the motion blur effect that I like for my time lapse work.

Each motion time lapse capture session is a little like a performance, because so many things have to go perfectly or the whole sequence fails… Usually I had to set the intervalometer to about 10 or 12 seconds, and then hope I could move the tripod, level up the shot, get the center exactly replicated — before the intervalometer took the shot. Many times that didn’t work out ! After a couple of months, I could get in a rhythm with this and had more success. This is a work in progress — but I really like the way it has given me a new way of working and of exploring space when making my time lapse pieces… I look at the world differently now.

TORONTO 2012

TORONTO 2012

A series of timelapses I shot in the summer of 2012 in Toronto, my home city.

Many, many kilometres were cycled. A healthy tan was developed. A two week pause in production due to a broken shoulder, and even a wipe-out on my bicycle occured when I biked over a set of stairs in some thick fog. Over all, it was a fun and educational project.

Shot with a Canon 550D, which unfortunately has a cropped frame.

Into The Mind – Official Teaser

Into The Mind – Official Teaser

From the makers of All.I.Can comes the new feature film: INTO THE MIND

Blur the lines between dream state and reality, as you perceive the world through the minds of many. Into the Mind contemplates the experiences passed between mentors and peers to paint a philosophical portrait of human kind. What drives us to overcome challenge? How do we justify risk? What forces are at the core of a mountain addiction? Unique athlete segments over a multitude of mountain sport genres depict the connectivity of Earth, and window into never seen before moments. Explore how we begin our perception of self, construct the foundations of confidence, and are ultimately led up the path of self-actualization.

As Buddha once said, “The mind is everything. What you think you become.”
Into The Mind is about becoming.

Amazing Croatia, Dubrovnik and Baška Voda

Amazing Croatia, Dubrovnik and Baška Voda

This short video is filmed during two weeks stay in Croatia in August 2012. We were in Baška Voda and Dubrovnik. The views was amazing!

Croatia is a country of more than thousand islands, and maybe has cleanest waters in the Mediterranean. The boat trip to Jelsa and Bol was great.

Dubrovnik has been placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Marble streets and baroque buildings were impressive. Cable car took us up to Srd Hill. Sunset from there was very beautiful.

Shot on Canon 60D.

Here is my first video project.

It is a timelapse video of the the mountainscape in Allgäu/ Bavaria/ Germany.
All sequences are shot in the area around the town Bad Hindelang.

The exact shooting locations were Hinterstein, Bad Hindelang, Oberjoch, Sonthofen, Burgberg, Oberstdorf, Hüttenberg and Gunzesried.

I have spent over 12 months collecting footage for this, I have shot approx. 20,000 stills before choosing 10,000 of them for this video.

Personally it is my goal to show you the beauty of the mountains on all the different daytimes and seasons.
They are always nice, even if the weather is bad.
One of my focus points is for sure the photography of the night sky, which fascinates me the most.

I have spent a lot of time in the nature taking these pictures, however the most work had to be done at home with post processing. And although you always feel like there is something you could have improved, even small details, before releasing, you come to a point when you just have to finish. And this time is now.

I want to thank my friends and family for supporting me.

The resolution of the video in Vimeo is 1280 x 720.
It is also available in 1920×1080 (and even 4k for some shots). Contact me for higher resolution.
Video may not be used commercially or public without permission.

Hope you like the video, more info about me:

I am a 20 year old photographer based in Hinterstein/ Germany. I started in January 2011 and want to improve myself continuously.

My Gear used for this video:

Canon EOS 550D
Magic Lantern 2.3 (really great software which I fully recommend!)

Tokina AF 11-16mm/2.8
Canon EF 50mm 1:1.8 II

From Inside: Superstorm in Brisbane, Australia (Timelapses)

More than 25.000 lighting strikes in one day, 10,000 residents lost power… This is how I saw, filmed and felt the superstorm in Brisbane, a week ago. Love to tell stories like this one!

You can also watch it with a better quality here: youtu.be/MuBapybl8nk?hd=1

Más de 25.000 rayos en un día, 10.000 personas se quedaron sin electricidad… Así es cómo yo vi, grabé y sentí la súpertormenta en Brisbane hace una semana. Me encanta contar historias como ésta!
