Redwood trees are the tallest trees in the world, and can live for thousands of years. This particular species of redwood trees are only found in the coastal regions of Northern California and in Oregon near the California border. I read an excellent book called "Wild Trees" by Richard Preston that tells the story of the adventurers and scientists who discovered the largest redwoods and study the rich ecosystem in the redwood canopy. I highly recommend the read.
Footage shot with DJI Phantom, DJI gimbal, GoPro HERO 3 Black camera, ImmersionRC FPV. Shot at 2.7K / 30p, Protune. Edited with Final Cut Pro X (curse you, FCPx, for your inability to do things right!). No stabilization in post.
The last time I saw an oceanic white-tip shark (Carcharhinus longimanus) in the water was in 2008. They are so beautiful and are super-inquisitive. There was no need to chase them—they would come right in for a portrait. Bahamas, 2008.
Aerial footage taken with a quadcopter in Tonga, September, 2013. Huge thanks to Julian and Ildi Cohen and the crew of the S/Y Bella Principessa for their hospitality (I used the catamaran as a launch platform). GoPro HERO3 on a DJI Phantom quadcopter with gimbal.
