On Youtube in 4K: On Vimeo (Awarded Staff Pick): Experience Iceland far away from the popular ring road as we journey into the breathtakingly beautiful and serene Highlands by air and land. Chasing the best light on the Island during the summer months, witness epic landscapes being lit for hours by the magical glow of […]

On Youtube in 4K: Ethereal is my first aerial film that was 2 years in the making. It is an experimental film shot in the remote, breathtaking Icelandic Highlands that combines aerial cinematography with timelapse. The accelerated movements is just fast enough to reveal changes in nature not normally noticeable to the naked eye, while […]

On Youtube in 4K: Ephemeral is a film about the ever-changing state of nature. As humans, we expect everything to be the same — day in and day out. But if we look to nature, we see that nothing lasts forever. The universe is in a constant state of change. Shot over 12 months, the […]

On Youtube in 4K: The light during midnight sun is a surreal and unforgettable experience. Hues of pinks, purples, reds and oranges that you may be lucky to see for a few minutes during a normal sunrise/sunset can explode for hours in an epic display of nature’s masterful artistry. Shot over two weeks from late […]

February is a perfect time to capture northern lights, ice caves, snow covered landscapes, glaciers, waterfalls, and more. We will show you why Iceland is a photographer and filmmaker’s paradise. This […]

On Youtube in 4K: Eye of the Storm is a winter saga in Iceland. In Iceland there are many kinds of storms. Ice, snow, rain, sand, ash, solar, magnetic, and more. Storms are agents of change. While often destructive and unpredictable, they also demonstrate the unyielding power of nature. They reveal nature’s beauty and its […]

Alchemy is a short film about transformation. In nature, everything is constantly changing: the earth, the sky, the stars, and all living things. Spring is followed by summer, fall and winter. Water turns into clouds, rain and ice. Over time, rivers are created, canyons carved, and mountains formed. All of these elements, mixed together, create […]

Ascendance is a tribute to nature’s unpredictable power and beauty. I went out to film the Perseid meteor shower but I encountered so much more. When you are out there, you never know for sure what nature will bring. Always be ready for a magical experience. Shot in Joshua Tree National Park and the Ancient […]

Dauðalogn is a spiritual and meditative journey into nature. Since the time of our earliest ancestors, nature has been a source for inspiration, imagination, and wisdom. Nature is where we come from. Even in this modern age, its energy still flows through our veins. Being in nature, we see the world our ancestors saw: a […]

One of the most amazing sunsets I’ve ever experienced. Shot at the Patriarch Grove in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest on August 22 with rain clouds looming over head, mother nature put on a show. Rain, lightning, double rainbows and golden light.

A joint collaboration with rock / ambient / experimental band MONO, Legend takes you on an epic 12 minute visual and aural journey through Iceland’s breathtaking landscapes during the time of the midnight sun. The film travels across Iceland, from the floating blue icebergs of Jokulsarlon’s glacial lagoon to the steaming geothermic vents of Myvatn, […]

The transit of Venus in front of the Sun is a special event that takes place only a few times per century. The next one isn’t until 2117. The above photo was taken on June 5, 2012 at 3:12pm Pacific time on Mt. Wilson in Los Angeles. You can see Venus just entering into view […]

Here’s a meteor captured on camera of this year’s Lyrids meteor shower. This is a still frame from a timelapse sequence. Stay tuned for the video! [ad#728×90]

[ad#728×90] Take a journey through the wilderness in the heart of the American Southwest. The Eastern Sierras, Grand Canyon, Upper and Lower Antelope Canyons, Rattlesnake Canyon, Vermillion Cliffs, North Coyote Buttes, the Wave, Yosemite National Park, Monument Valley, Grand Staircase Escalante and the December 2011 Lunar Eclipse. Here’s a list of the scenes in the […]

[ad#728×90] Winter arrived late here at the Wave in the Coyote Buttes North. I’ve seen many amazing photos of this place when mother nature is nice. But I wanted to see it at a time when mother nature gets a bit cranky. Timing could’t have been better as the snow started to fall just as […]

Original with music by Hans Zimmer: New Version for Jane Goodall Live with music by Justin R. Durban I grew up in the city — a world constructed of steel, concrete and asphalt. My view of the night sky was the moon and the handful of stars bright enough to outshine the glow of city […]

[ad#728×90] I was filming in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine forest on the night of July 3rd. I just experienced an amazing orange-red sunset and as the light was fading, the clouds looked like they were disappearing for a perfect night of clear skies to capture the Milky Way. But as the Milky Way started rising […]

Shot in Joshua Tree National Park, this is the view of the galactic core of our galaxy. It’s an amazing view best seen in late Spring, Summer and early fall in the northern hemisphere. Head away from the light pollution of urban areas to a place that has a clear view of the east and […]

[ad#728×90] Shot over the 2011 New Year weekend when a winter storm arrived in Yosemite. Overcast skies the first day, followed by heavy snow on the second day, partly cloudy the third day and sunny the fourth day. You’ll see a mixture of shots from the different weather conditions. Enjoy! Soundtrack: Xibalba by Clint Mansell

[ad#728×90] A total lunar eclipse is a rare event — the last one occurred back in 2008. Even rarer is one that takes place on the Winter Solstice when the Earth is tilted furthest from the sun. The last one happened in 1638, over three and a half centuries ago, and another won’t happen on […]

[ad#728×90] The Geminid meteor shower was spectacular this year. For this event, I headed out to the Eastern Sierras, around the Alabama Hills, and to Joshua Tree National park for 3 nights and 2 days. I was lucky enough not just to film the meteor shower under mostly clear skies, but I also filmed some […]

[ad#728×90] Autumn is a great time to be in Yosemite National Park. The summer crowds are gone, the temperatures cool down, and the leaves change color. It is also an unpredictable time of year. Last year, it was dry. No snow yet and the waterfalls were down to a trickle. This year early winter storms […]
