Peak District 24th June 2016

I have spent the end of this week in the Peak District working on a video production project that should be out by the end of the summer. I have been watching the weather for a couple of weeks now and managed to grab the light that I was looking for hot off the plane from Sardinia.

Aerial Destination Photography – Sardinia 23rd June 2016

I have been working in Sardinia this week on an aerial destination photography shoot for Thomson Holidays, gathering stills and video for their 2017 marketing campaign for the Island. The travel arrangements were all sorted by the client and I ended up flying from Manchester to Stuttgart and then onto Sardinia which presented two opportunities for airlines to lose my baggage – my worst nightmare when working on a tight shoot overseas – but thankfully everything arrived safely and in…

Flying Scotsman Aerial Filming 15th June 2016

The Flying Scotsman visited North Wales this afternoon, making a journey from Chester to Holyhead.

DJI Inspire Travel Mode 12th June 2016

DJI Inspire Travel Mode A quick tip to solve the problem of the DJI Inspire not going into travel mode: The DJI Inspire Travel Mode is designed to allow the DJI Inspire to fold down flat and fit into it’s travel case during transit. It’s a nifty little feature and feels pretty cool the first couple of times that you do it. Every now and again it seems to have a glitch. Have you ever tried to get the Inspire…

The best Time-Lapse you have ever seen? 11th June 2016

Keith Loutit has just raised the bar for time-lapse films. I was told last week that time-lapse is so 2012 now – but watch this and prepare to be impressed. Here is what Keith had to say: “When we pass by landscapes they appear fixed in time, but they change around us constantly. The idea behind this film is to reveal this change by returning to the same camera positions over the years.” Enjoy the film below: The Lion City…

Filming in Northern Ireland 1st June 2016

I have spent this week filming in Northern Ireland. I have been working with Posing Productions on the Brit Rock 2016 film that they are putting together – a celebration of rock climbing in the UK and following on from the success of previous Brit Rock hits. It’s been great to visit some new places including Fairhead, one of the most impressive rock climbing venues I have seen in the UK. I was filming with the DJI Inspire Pro and…
