    Follow me on https://facebook.com/TSOphotography for more photos, videos & updates. 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!

You can watch it in 4K here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Scxs7L0vhZ4 This is a time-lapse video resulting from a 15,000 km (almost 10,000 miles) long road trip and tens of thousands of images taken along the way over the last 5 months. The journey has covered all of Norway’s 19 counties, from the far south to the Russian border in the Northeast. The aim of this 5 minute short film is to show the variety of Norway, everything from the deep fjords in the Southwest, to the moon landscape in the North, the Aurora Borealis (Nothern Lights) and the settlements and cities around the country, both in summer and wintertime. The video shows some of the most scenic places in Norway, such as Lofoten, Senja, Helgelandskysten, Geirangerfjorden, Nærøyfjorden and Preikestolen.

          We spent four weeks in the summer of 2012 building two lines in Lofoten, Norway; a dirt line and a big bike line. Our goal was to capture world-class riding in the untouched and unique nature around Lofoten. The fast shifting weather and continuous problems with getting the lines working left us with only a couple of days to complete the film. This is a highlight clip featuring all the best action from the project. Lines of Lofoten - a 5 episode web-series will be released shortly.

              In February 2014 I was invited along to tour Norway's North Western island chain known as the Lofoten Islands. I must admit I was a bit nervous about going into the Arctic Circle in their winter as I come from one of the flattest, driest, and hottest countries on the planet. Snow with all it's associated blizzards is totally foreign to me just as trekking through the Pilbara in our summer would be to visitors from Norway. Much to our surprise we landed in Norway to one of their lowest snowfall seasons in years which gave me a small bit of comfort but left me wanting to come back to try again next winter. It wasn't even that cold with the temperatures maxing out at 6 degrees on some days. Now you have to remember we are in the Arctic Circle in winter so I guess thats Global Warming for you. Man! what an amazing country. I can't begin to describe how grand this landscape is. This video just doesn't do it justice in my opinion. The fiord systems around these Islands is everything you would hope for. I feel I have been spoilt forever after visiting this place. It's like a Milford Sound in New Zealand around every corner. Good friend Rod Thomas is organising a tour here next February so if you have any desire to see a bit of whats in this video look him up at www.rodthomas.com.au Everything was shot on Canon products. C300, 5Dmk3, all Canon lenses. It was a bit lonely out there with only a few Canon still shooters wandering around looking lost wondering why everyone else was shooting Nikon. Not a problem for me though. The soundtrack was licensed from The Music Bed. Next time I pick a soundtrack I best do a search of how many times it has been used on Vimeo. I was thinking to myself, "I have heard this before somewhere?" Sorry to all of those people who are sick of this score. It's still a great track though. "Rise" by Tony Anderson

                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 https://vimeo.com/pablojgarmon.
