    I have photographed each of the 59 US National Parks, often with an ancient-looking large-format camera. The volcanoes of Hawaii are such a dynamic landscape that to tell their story, I felt inspired to interpret them through motion using time-lapse and DSLR video. Although I've been shooting clips for years, this is my first completed video. Here are highlights of this unique sea-to-summit project, filmed in 2011/2013, mostly in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park: 1. One of the most mesmerizing spectacles of nature I've witnessed is lava flowing to the ocean as clouds of steam rise from the meeting of fire and water. I stood mere feet away from the 2000F lava. After everybody had left, I stayed to record the pulse of the flow over an entire night. 2. Since 2008, the Halemaʻumaʻu Crater at Kilauea Summit contains an active lava lake which at night illuminates a large gas plume. I captured the Milky Way appearing in a weather break above by setting up my camera in driving rain. 3. Besides filming Mauna Loa, the world's largest active volcano, from Mauna Kea and Haleakala (I've included a shot of the "world's most beautiful sunrise"), I backpacked for a solitary dozen miles on steep and sharp lava rocks to its 13,700 feet summit. In the morning, my water bottle was frozen solid after I had camped to capture what is likely the first night-time and sunrise time-lapses from the top of the summit cliffs overlooking the immense Mokuaweoweo caldera. They bookend the video.

        I have been dreaming about discovering the Hawaiian Islands for a long time. For sure, the most isolated inhabited landmass in the world deserves a visit! The only problem was choosing which island I would visit. With its evergreen valleys, volcanoes and outstanding beaches, Maui seemed like the perfect fit for a first encounter. In fact, Maui has it all. From swimming in crystal clear waters to exploring a luxuriant bamboo forest; from snorkeling with exotic fishes to seeing the Milky Way at the top of a crater, the possibilities are endless! Catch a glimpse of the wonders of Maui and let yourself dream about this paradise on Earth.

          The Barringer Crater, more commonly know as the Meteor Crater, is a crater located outside Flagstaff, Arizona. It is one of the best know and best preserved meteorite craters on Earth. This animation illustrates the probable path the original meteoroid took to reach Earth. Scientists estimate approximately 500 million years ago, a collision occurred in the Asteroid Belt in which an iron-nickel core fragment was sent on a slow path towards Earth. About 40,000 - 50,000 BC, the 50 meter wide meteor breached the atmosphere and collided with the ground in present-day Arizona, carving out the 1,200 meter wide crater in an instant. This animation was completed in Maya, Photoshop, and After Effects for a redesign of the Meteor Crater's website, which I'm also designing. The website is expected to launch by the first of January, 2010.

              14 days. 3,000 miles. 7 National Parks. 1 awesome wife. 1 rad baby boy. 2 of rad baby's great grandparents. A wonderful time. I shot over 7,000 photos and numerous video to get about 45GB of data. Well worth it! Enjoy!
