I am a young film-maker who specialised on time-lapse photography. Around 5 years ago I got into time-lapse with a simple point-and-shoot camera by recording video and speeding it up in post. Over the time I realized that this isn’t the way to create extraordinary time-lapse pieces, like Tom Lowe came up with, in these days.
With the purchase of a DSLR everything changed. I learned a ton about photography and specially about Post Production.
After some time of doing static time-lapses, I wanted to get motion in my videos.
I began to build my own Motion-Control gear, usable for time-lapse. I build a small, collapsible slider of 2m length which I used in my video Powerlapse. A more solid 1m Igus-based slider later. After that I wanted a modular system which can be used even as slider or as jib. A system came out which can now be used as motion controlled timelapse-slider or as jib from length of 1m to 4m.
In 2013 with some incoming jobs for timelapse I decided to invest into professional video-equipment as I hadn’t that much trust in my constructions to use them on a paid job. Now I own some basic Kessler Gear as well as a Dynamic Perception Stage One and eMotimo for advanced motion-control timelapse.
The goal with my timelapse-photography is to capture what can’t be seen by the human eye in combination with the most beautiful landscapes and impressive cityscapes.
