Bucharest Rising is a timelapse film set in the bustling capital city of Romania. The goal of this project is to promote city’s attractions and to show its diversity and its recent development.
In the period between the two World Wars, the city’s elegant architecture earned Bucharest the nickname of “Little Paris”. Unfortunately many buildings from the historical center were destroyed by 1977 earthquake and Ceausescu’s program of systematization. In recent years, the city has been experiencing an economic and cultural boom and today, Bucharest is an interesting mix of neoclassical, communist era and modern architectures.
The locations that appear in this film are concentrated in the center, old town and the northern part of the city. You can see beautiful parks (Cismigiu, Herastrau and Carol), communist era buildings (Parliament Palace and the House of Free Press), historic buildings (the Romanian Atheneum, CEC Palace) and modern structures (Basarab Overpass, City Gate, Sky Tower).
The camera used for this project was a Nikon D7200 paired with a Nikkor 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 and a Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6. Polarizers, gradual NDs, variable NDs and fixed NDs filters (up to ND1000) were used to increase the exposure time and to handle high contrast scenes. Almost 15,000 photos were captured in raw format and post-processed to retain all the tones in the image.

We recently made a road trip from LA to Portland. I just wanted to see what I could create with my Sony RX100m4 and DJI Phantom 3 Standard along the way. I was mostly concentrated on photography and doing some behind the scenes type of videography on the side.
I was checking the footage today and thought it might be a good idea to make a short clip. So here we go…
I hope you like it!

Der zweite Teil der Time-Lapse Produktion „Lights over Switzerland“. Die Bilder dieser Zeitraffer Aufnahmen stammen alle aus der Schweiz, die Meisten entstanden nachts unter klarem Sternenhimmel. Unter anderem wurden Szenen in den Gebieten Wallis, Graubünden und in Bern aufgenommen, an den schönsten Naturplätzen, die die Schweiz zu bieten hat.

A few days ago I had the chance to stay in Venezia for four hours. It was the first time in my life, despite living in Italy and being almost forty. I’ve been waiting for this so long that I decided to shoot a video to remember this experience.
I tried to replicate the approach of the ancient travellers, meaning that I didn’t use a map and I simply walked around losing myself in the beautiful narrow alleys of the city, trying to capture the life of the natives and trying to avoid the tourist areas as much as possible. I must say that the experience was pure gold. Venezia is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities on earth, a place you’ll remember forever.

In 1962, Fidel Castro banned all professional (for profit) sports in Cuba. For Cuba’s top athletes this means a tough choice. Stay in Cuba, their home, or defect and follow their dreams. This is the story of two-time Olympic gold medalist Mario Kindelán Mesa.

Human beings don’t always make rational decisions. But making irrational decisions is precisely what makes us human. These decisions, based on an impulse or a feeling, often lead us to those perfect moments when it feels great to be alive.
“The Beauty of the Irrational” follows Ryan Sandes, a South African Ultra-Runner, as he returns to the Fish River Canyon to run the 5 day, 84km, Fish River Canyon Hiking Trail in the fastest time possible.
He completed the run, self-supported, in amazing time of 6h57min!

Book and Job Galleryを運営する写真家/ギャラリストのカーソン・ランカスターが、拠点であるサンフランシスコを語る。
The Eastern Sierra Mountain Range offers an extremely diverse range of unique natural features, from some of the oldest living trees in the world to extraordinary desert arches. Beyond its incredible terrain, this area of California also offers stunning, vivid views of the Milky Way and the Night Sky.
Its crazy to think that the Galaxy can be captured with this much detail, only a few hours away from Los Angeles and San Francisco. I hope that seeing some of this footage with influence more people to get out there any witness the magic of the night sky. I have met people in SF and LA that have never seen the Milky Way in their entire life. Why not?! Its within such a close reach!
Having been born and raised in California, I have a special affinity for the Eastern Sierra region. It was one of the first areas that I featured in my early photography projects. I wanted to re-visit this beautiful region and showcase some of my favorite views through Timelapse photography.

I went up early to go to the Oostvaardersplassen, a nature reserve in the Netherlands.
I was lucky: It was a beautiful misty morning!
Enjoy these enchanting landscapes.

For centuries, Ethiopia’s Lower Omo Valley has been a crossroads for many distinct tribes. During times of drought, natural resources become scarce, escalating clashes between groups. In an ever-changing landscape, young men and women come of age in an unfamiliar time.
The story is narrated from two unique perspectives. Uri- a young boy from the Hamar tribe who becomes a man during his rite of passage ceremony, and Segelgwo- an elder chief of the Daasanach, who reflects on his community’s uncertain future.

Bloom is a story about taking risks. As the short film opens, we meet Isabella, an Argentinian girl arriving in the U.S. for the very first time to visit a long-time friend. Looking to escape the monotony of everyday life, Isabella finds herself in a remote West Coast mountain town armed with nothing but her luggage and scant understanding of the English language. Upon realizing her luggage was mixed up at the airport, she embarks on an unexpected journey with a stranger, one that flips her world upside down. Limited by language barriers, these two strangers must rely only on body language and facial expressions to convey even simple thoughts and ideas.

The Sami People call it the ‘blue time’ – the period in winter when the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon in northern areas of Scandinavia. Jeff Allen visits northern Norway every year, in both winter and summer, to break out of the world of credit cards and double glazing that society has become and explore the breath-taking wilderness and coastline by sea kayak with longtime friend Bjørn Eines. In more recent years, he has taken up dog sledding under the experienced wing of Tore Albrigtsen and now guides expeditions to the region to let others witness the beauty of his favourite place on earth.
