Future Memories

The title is about the changing world we are living in regards to climate change. Some of the glaciers you will see will literaly be gone in 5 to 10 years from now.

My first movie, all recorded with a mavic pro in Southern Greenland during my photo tours. Technically it isnt anything groundbraking but I really enjoyed putting all the clips with premiere for the first time and make some kind of story. Im not sure if many will see it on here yet but more importantly for me it was great fun making it.

I will now plan on a more serious project in the total wilderness of Patagonia the coming months so stay tuned and thanks for watching!

Tasermiut – Greenland’s Wilderness

from Plus All Audiences

Tasermiut Fjord is a remote wilderness on the southern tip of Greenland. Accessible only via helicopter and boat it sees relatively few hikers. With some of the biggest rock walls in the world it is famous amongst the climbing community, but little known to the public.

In August 2015 I took a friend on an 18-day unsupported backpacking trip to photograph this remarkable area. We packrafted on the fjord and hiked high mountain passes. Carrying 2 full camera kits, an ultralight time-lapse slider I designed, camping kit and all my food my backpack weighed 35kg. Throughout the trip we struggled across the hardest unpathed terrain I have ever experienced whilst being plagued by mosquitoes. But in the evenings we made fires, caught fish swam in mountain streams and immersed ourselves in nature. We left feeling exhausted but privileged to have experienced true wilderness. This short film captures a small portion of this incredible landscape.

Technical Info:
Shot on a Canon 6D and 5DSR with 16-35mm, 50mm and 70-200mm lenses.
Slider shots with a custom designed ultralight carbon-fibre timelapse rig activated by a Dynamic Perception MX2.
Post production in Lightroom, LRTimelapse and After Effects.
