  3. I recently bought me the MP-E 65mm and played with it a little bit. It's a very special lens and you need a little bit of patience, but the results are breathtaking.

    I'm looking forward to new adventures in the macro universe..

    be sure to check out...

  4. Client: GQ iPad [itunes.apple.com/gb/app/gq/id428117848?mt=8]
    Director: Dan Winters [danwintersphoto.com]
    Editor: John Aldrich
    Sound Design & Music: Shervin Shaeri @ Mutant Jukebox
    Photography: NASA JPL, Dan Winters, David Robertson, Travis Smith
    Narrated by: Adam Steltzner, Miguel San Martin, Ann Devereaux, Allen Chen

    This is a very special project for me, It has been an honour to collaborate with Dan on this amazing project. Mr Dan Winters (danwintersphoto.com) is a renowned photojournalist, creating portraits of luminaries such as Barak Obama, Niel Young, Tupak Shakur to name but a very few, the list is incredible. His work documenting the final launches of Discovery, Endeavour and Atlantis is some of the most beautiful images i have ever seen, pre-order on Amazon;

    During composing this piece my father was ill with cancer, he passed away just recently and in my own small way i'd like to dedicate this to the memory of him and the fragility and beauty of life.

    It has truly been an honour to work with Dan, he allowed me the creative freedom to create as i wanted with little intervention. And of course a big cheers to the Mars Rover Curiosity crew who are inspiring us all with their work.

  5. BEST VIEWED IN HD AND FULLSCREEN (with scaling off)

    Midnight Sun: A natural phenomenon occurring in the summer months north of the Arctic Circle and south of the Antarctic Circle where the sun never fully sets and remains visible 24 hours a day.

    Shot entirely in Ultra HD 4K resolution, this short time lapse film was shot during the Icelandic Midnight Sun in June of 2011.

    For 17 days I traveled solo around the entire island shooting almost 24 hours, sleeping in the car, and eating whenever I had the time. During my days shooting this film I shot 38,000 images, traveled some 2900 miles, and saw some of the most amazing, beautiful, and indescribable landscapes on the planet. Iceland is absolutely one of the most beautiful and unusual places you could ever imagine. Especially during the Midnight Sun when the quality of light hitting the landscape is very unusual, and very spectacular.

    Iceland is a landscape photographers paradise and playground, and should be number 1 on every photographers must visit list. Iceland during the Midnight Sun is in sort of a permanent state of sunset. The sun never full sets and travels horizontally across the horizon throughout the night, as can be seen in the opening shot and at the :51 second mark in the video.

    During the Arctic summer, sunset was at midnight and sunrise was at 3am. The Arctic summer sun provided 24 hours a day of light, with as much as 6 hours daily of "Golden light". Once the sun had set it wouldn't even get dark enough for the stars to come out, and they don't start to reappear until August.

    My advice to everyone out there, photographer or not, is simple... You MUST visit Iceland sometime during your lifetime. You will never regret it.
