  1. A documentary about a journey to "The Edge of the Earth". The Gates of the Arctic National Park is the northernmost national park in the U.S. (the entirety of the park lies north of the Arctic Circle).There are no established roads, trails, visitor facilities, or campgrounds in the park.

    Following the Alatna River you will see an amazing place people rarely see, including the amazing Arrigetch Peaks.

    "For the next two weeks you must survive using the knowledge, skills and gear you bring with you. You will walk or float through intact ecosystems where people have lived with the land for thousands of years. You will experience solitude, self reliance and nature on its own terms. Are you prepared?"

    Filmed using Solar Power for Two Weeks = 10,000 combined shutter releases and video clips. Below is the link to how I accomplished this and stored all the pictures and video files.

  2. The cable cars in San Francisco are a piece of living history, still faithfully providing service to the people of this fair city since their inception in 1873, although more used by tourists than locals much of the time today. Come and take a journey as we explore today's cable car system and see the sights of San Francisco along the way!

  3. This precious jewel of the Indonesian archipelago reveals its essence in the deep spirituality which is manifested through daily rituals in which the intimate relationship between men, gods and nature is celebrated with joy and intense participation.
    The air is full of scents of flowers and incense, accompanying us always, even before diving.
    The underwater images have been filmed among the strong currents of Lembongan Island and its black sea beds of Tulamben, where the spectacular wreck of the Liberty rests.

  4. The footage here was taken a couple of months before Christmas using a Sanyo HD2000 camcorder. For some footage I used a Jag35 adapter with a Canon FD 1.4 lens.
    I've fiddled about in Vegas to make this clip more dream like.
