    Finding Oregon is the compilation of six months of timelapse photography across the state of Oregon, punctuated by a 1600 mile road trip in September. We've filmed the Columbia River Gorge, Mt Hood, Mt Jefferson, the Southwestern Coast, the Alvord Desert, Leslie Gulch, Blue Mountains, Crater Lake, Eagle Cap Wilderness, Deschutes River, and more. We're proud to have touched all four corners of the state; however Oregon is the kind of place that the more you see, the more places there are to still discover.

    The greatest challenge with this project was being in the right place at the right time. Night timelapse sequences particularly have an unexpected number of requirements to get the bright, stunning payoff. First, the moon should be around the New Moon phase (no moon) so as not to compete with outshining the stars, so that means we get about 5 days a month window. Next, weather must be cooperative with a dependable expectancy of cloudless skies. Here in Oregon, only the Summer months have good chance of clear skies, so only 1/4 of the year offers good chance of clear skies. So that means, we have three months in the year, with a 5 day window each month to plan with fingers crossed for epic star shooting conditions. That's only 15 days in a year. Then, you hope that something doesn't come up in regular life to pull you away to other obligations on those few days. It is a maddening challenge getting all the factors to line up to be in the right place at the right time. But, when it does happen- it is such a satisfying feeling!

  4. Une des belles régions du Venezuela, est conformée par les Llanos, des savanes étendues qui se perdent dans l'horizon, où la végétation et la faune si diverses, sont d'une beauté émouvante et unique. L' immense territoire posséde une variété d'écosystèmes qui permet d'apprécier une pluralité de paysages et d'émotions qui font du " Llano " une expérience très émouvante pour les amants de la nature.
    Dans cette région on peut apprécier deux grandes saisons qui établissent une différence remarquable dans la vie de la savane: La saison des pluies et la saison séche (la sécheresse). Pendant la saison de pluies, ou mousson,nous avons des forêts en galerie, canaux et savanes remplies de palmiers, " corozos ", " merecures ", " samanes " qui présentent toute leur splendeur a l'époque ou la couleurerte´ébloui le paysage ainsi que la savane fleurie. Pendant la saison séche, le vert devient jaune et brun, la poussière couvre la plaine et la vie de la région s'éteint en grande partie pour se concentrer dans quelques petits oasis où se trouve l'eau. Ces changements tellement brusques transforment la savane en deux époques totalment différentes mais également attractives, où le changement de saisons d'une région présente deux paysages totalement différents.
