2014 has been a transformational year. The birth of our son, relocation to a new city, closure of one startup adventure, the beginning of another startup journey and the launch of various big design projects.
To manifest the transition into a new sign I have composed a short film of time-lapse sequences that were shot primarily during the same time period. This film represents the transformation of a single day. Sequences were captured on multiple occasions in Joshua Tree. Original music by Phil Clevenger. Enjoy!

On my second day of my fall trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I arrived early as the sun rose at Lower Silver Falls in Baraga County. The first time I visited the falls in 2010, they were exploding with color and I had hoped I would see the same this year. With the perfect 70's song on the radio I pulled up in the parking area, got out of my car and just stared at the beauty of the waterfall. It was so unbelievably colorful that I almost cried it was purely magical. You will see what I saw, you will feel what I felt that wonderful morning I spent at the waterfall.

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.
