1. This is some of the timelapse sequences I recorded in Iceland in september of 2013.
    Over three weeks we drove nearly 5500km taking more than 40000 photos on the way.

    Recorded with Nikon cameras and lenses. Post-processed with LRTimelapse, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe After Effects. Motion control sequences done with a Stage One dolly from Dynamic Perception and a Celestron Skywatcher pan/tilt head.

    This was filmed between 29th April and 10th May 2011 in the Arctic, on
    the archipelago Lofoten in Norway.

    My favorite natural phenomenon is one I do not even know the name of, even after talking to meteorologists and astrophysicists I am none the wiser.What I am talking about I have decided to call The Arctic Light and it is a natural phenomenon occurring 2-4 weeks before you can see the Midnight Sun.

    The Sunset and Sunrise are connected in one magnificent show of color and light lasting from 8 to 12 hours. The sun is barely going below the horizon before coming up again. This is the most colorful light that I know, and the main reason I have been going up there for the last 4 years, at the exact
    same time of year, to photograph. Based on previous experience, I knew this was going to be a very
    difficult trip. Having lost a couple of cameras and some other equipment up there before, it was crucial to bring an extra set of everything. I also
    made sure I had plenty of time in case something went wrong.
    If you can imagine roping down mountain cliffs, or jumping around on slippery rocks covered in seaweed with 2 tripods, a rail, a controller,
    camera, lenses, filters and rigging for 4-5 hour long sequences at a time, and then
    having to calculate the rise and fall of the tides in order to capture the essence - it all proved bit of a challenge.

    And almost as if planned, the trip would turn out to become very
    difficult indeed. I had numerous setbacks including: airline lost my
    luggage, struggling to swim ashore after falling into the Arctic sea: twice, breaking lenses, filters, tripod, computer, losing the whole dolly rig and controller into the sea, and even falling off a rather tall rock and ending
    up in the hospital. As much as I wanted to give up, the best way Out is
    always “Through”. I am glad I stuck it through though because there were some amazing sunrises waiting. At 1:06 you see a single scene from day to night to day which is from 9pm to 7am. Think about that for a minute.. 10 hours with light like that.

    I asked the very talented Marika Takeuchi to specifically compose and
    perform a song for this movie, and what she came up with is absolutely remarkable. Thank you very much Marika!

  4. More details about the "making of" on http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2013/06/18/how-a-stunning-aurora-video-was-made/
    The soft light of the arctic regions attracted me magically so that I decided to dedicate a project to it. Around the polar circle light occupies a very important role, especially in winter. During the freezing months the sun creeps only along the horizon providing thus long hours of this tender twilight that occurs before sunrise and after sunset. But the nights are even longer and then another special light brights up the sky: the aurora borealis. In this film I wanted to show how individual the northern lights are: they may dance very fast in a frenetic rhythm or explode in a red-purple firework or they may just glow greenish over the starry sky vaguely distinguishable by the human eye. Every night there is a different night show - if the polar lights appear as they use to be very shy divas.
    As a non resident of the arctic regions it was very difficult for me to hunt the northern lights. I travelled different times to the distant regions at the polar circle. It was not easy enduring the freezing temperatures and the darkness and sleeping in the tent or in the car when the harsh wind was shaking it too strong. But after a year I had the incredible luck to gather enough video material for this film project. Especially on my last trip to Tromsö in february 2013 I experienced incredible beautiful aurora borealis.
    The footage was captured in Greenland, Norway (on the Lofoten islands and in the Troms region), Iceland and Finland.

    The surreal atmosphere of the landscapes is emphasized thanks to the wonderful music of the talented and creative composer Pablo Garmón vimeo.com/pablojgarmon.

  5. The Lofoten islands are an archipelago located 66 degrees North in Northern Norway. These isles have long been popular with photographers who travel from all corners of the globe to capture the islands remote and rugged beauty.

    With this film I had hoped to capture and the variety of colours in the mountains and lakes and the vastness of the landscapes from the elevated peaks, but this original idea was not to be. A few days before I visited a large snow storm hit, this new powdering of snow left a lot of the trails I had intended to hike invisible and even the locals advised against walking them in the current conditions. The snow also rendered the landscapes colourless and many of the lakes were still frozen. Plan 'A' for this film unfortunately went out of the window and I did not really have a plan 'B'.

    I ended up shooting a lot more around sea level of the fjords and surrounding mountains. Originally I had hoped to evoke emotions of vastness and solitude with this film but upon reviewing the footage I was pleasantly surprised to find I was capturing a different emotion, one of a more understated essence; a peacefulness and a quiet. It just goes to show that when you think you are down on your luck, something beautiful and unexpected can still happen and you get something out of it.

    This is 'The 'Quiet'. A simple, understated account of a humble, peaceful place.
