Recently got back from another installment of China. This time was more enjoyable than the last. I think partly due to the fact I saw the sun for more than a couple of hours in 12 days but also I knew what to expect this time, so I wasn’t being bombarded with a sensory overload!

Spent 13 days over in Shanghai assisting Rob from Scene Photography. Days were pretty long in the studio, but we managed get some time in the evenings to go explore the city.. which is massive and crazy busy.
Above is a PanoDrop taken with the quad-copter over the building we were working in.

Here’s a selection of shots captured over the past year using the DJI Phantom, Zenmuse H3-2D Gimbal and GoPro 3.
It’s been a very good year for me, I’ve been fortunate to have travelled to some pretty amazing places. The heli has been crammed in my rucksack where ever I’ve gone. For something so small, it still blows my mind the kind of shots you can capture with it…
I have ordered the new 3 axis gimbal, so once that’s fitted, the shots should be even smoother. For comparison, check out this first video shot with no electronic gimbal.. https://vimeo.com/63947449
While working in London with Alex, he spotted this building that stood out from the rest. It turns out it’s an art installation by Alex Chinneck. We thought it would be cool to have Alex riding by and then flip the image to make it a little trippy. I had to adjust the angle of the perspective in post to give the impression the image was taken from the ‘bottom‘ looking up, and not the other way round.

Here’s a trippy one for you. Took two photo’s from slightly different points of view. Shot while in search of natural hot springs, British Columbia, Canada.
I haven’t been this excited over a piece of tech since I got my hands on the first GoPro Hero nearly two and a half years ago. Back then the ideas and possibilities of this small water proof camera seemed endless. Over this time GoPro have boomed, and now everyone knows about them. Some of the stuff being captured now is truly ore inspiring. The versatility of this small little device is changing the industry in many ways. Some for the better some for the worse, it depend on how you look at it.
I’ve had two dreams since I was very young and first started dabbling in this tech business… one being, owning something capable of capturing super high speed film and the second owning a device that could carry a camera to capture aerial shots. Now part of that dream has come true..
Glad to finally get this project out! It’s been in development that past 5ish months and we’ve had to keep it strictly under wraps.

Just before Christmas 2011 I headed to the French Alps once more, for a week of snowboarding and partying with 230 Trent Snowsporters. I’ve spent the past 6 months or so producing a 30min long DVD of the recorded antics. Above is the trailer.
Spent a few days up in the French Alps. This time it was just me and Alex. We did a spot of filming and pretty much destroyed ourselves…
