Backpacking the Trans-Catalina Trail

Backpacking the Trans-Catalina Trail

Four days spent backpacking along the Trans-Catalina Trail on Santa Catalina Island. Having officially opened in April of 2009, the TCT winds a little more than 37 miles from the Renton Mine Trailhead on the East End (just outside of Avalon) to Starlight Beach on the West End. Spectacular island hiking just a few dozen miles off the coast of Los Angeles in Southern California. In all, 55.4 miles were covered with just over 13’000 of elevation gained during our trip.

Shot on a Nikon D7000 + Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 + Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 + Tokina 12-24mm f/4 + Canon S100 all in 1080p HD.

natureLAPSE: Volume 3

natureLAPSE: Volume 3

This is the third volume of timelapses in my natureLAPSE series. This series of timelapses includes the following locations. Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, South Dakaota, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

2012 was a busy year for me. I was fortunate enough to travel to many beautiful locations for both work and play. Whether the productions I was working for called for timelapses or not, I always tried to get at least one timelapse in to capture the location in which I was working. Many times as a professional cameraman, your working from sun up to sun down, leaving no time for anything else, so you will find a large amount of night sequences in this volume for that very reason.

Most of the timelapses were shot with a Canon 60d and tokina 11-16mm lens, some are done with a GoPro Hero 2. All photos were shot as RAW files, batch processed in Lightroom 4, strung together in Quicktime 7, and edited in FCPX.

A huge thanks goes out to Tad Hutchinson who made the music track for this piece as well as natureLAPSE: volume 2.

Enjoy!
