I worked as Director of Photography on a video for IconFitness and Stiry. This video is a short compilation of exterior shots from that project.
I photographed Tanya Poppett with the Sony FS5 in 4K Raw using the Sony Gmaster 70-200mm lens, recording on the Shogun Inferno.
The opening and closing drone shots were done with the DJI Phantom 4.

Check out the full video here.

Tanya wanted to work out in a cool location. The Royal National Park in New South Wales, Australia, about an hour south of Sydney, was the perfect spot.

Tanya Poppett is a fitness instructor from New South Wales, Australia. I’m a filmmaker based in the United States.

Tanya Poppett is a Fitness Instructor from New South Wales, Australia. Growing up, she struggled with her body image. After trying to be something she knew she wasn’t, she discovered a passion for healthy living, fitness and nutrition.

Tanya believes that “Fit and Healthy” look different for everyone. Basically, she says, “the media’s got it wrong.”  Staying active does not just mean ‘hitting the gym’.  Through her efforts to learn, teach and inspire fitness in others, Tanya has become a worldwide fitness leader, instructor and coach. Her main objective is to share her knowledge and love for health and fitness, instilling a lifelong passion for active living through innovative ways of getting fit and staying active.

I had the privilege to work with Tanya, for Stiry and iFit, as Director of Photography, in telling Tanya’s story of health and fitness through a positive and active lifestyle.

From an early age, Idalis Valaszquez was passionate about physical fitness. She grew up competing in track and field on Puerto Rico’s national team. However, after becoming a mother, she experienced life threatening complications which made fitness and wellness not just a career, but a matter of survival. After learning how to be fit and to be well, Idalis turned her passion into her profession. Now, she helps thousands of people on a daily basis reach their goals, through her IV Fitness platform, promoting smart training, a healthy body image and teaching positive, sustainable lifestyle changes.

OSTRANENIE [Ah-strah-nuh-nee]
The technique of presenting common things in an unfamiliar way, in order to enhance the perception of the familiar.

Erik Linton, is a one of a kind artist. He uses ostranenie to make ordinary things extraordinary. Seeing his art provides a new perspective on the world around us.

Erik Linton was born and raised along the Wasatch front, in Utah. His artwork was largely influenced by the mountains near his home. One of his missions as an artist is to help people see things that surround them in different ways. Tree prints provide a unique and extraordinary look into a micro and macro world. Erik gathers wood from fallen trees and tells their story in print–art prints.  Erik lives in Hyrum, Utah, with his wife and children. See more of his work here.

I had the opportunity to direct, shoot and edit this video for Stiry.

 

Fall Colors in the Wasatch

It was summer. And then, it wasn’t. It seemed like we skipped fall and went directly to winter.  Temperatures dropped overnight. One day it was hot. The next day it was not. I wanted a smooth transition from summer to winter–a gradual cooling, drifting gently into winter’s white. Not this immediate shorts and flip flops yesterday, ski parka and gloves today. This is not how it’s supposed to be. This is not what I signed up for.

Then, I noticed the trees and I repented my rant at mother nature.

The ache in my bones and the sting on my cheeks was endurable, if I were able to walk through a grove of shimmering golden aspen or hike through a stand of flaming maple. The greens of summer had given way to the fiery passion of life’s last gasp, leaves desperately clinging to branches until separated by the inevitable.

I will not embrace the cold. It is not in my nature. But I will not deny the spectacular contrast of color brought on by the fall.

I was privileged to spend a week in the Paris, LDS Temple, filming the interior and exterior of this beautiful edifice in preparation for the open house and dedication. I created this video for the Public Affairs Department and the Temple Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The temple is located in Le Chesnay, France, just outside of Paris, and is a mere five minutes from the Palace of Versailles.

This was the stormiest week on Maui this year. I intended to fly my drone and get those iconic tropical Hawaiian shots.

It rained every day. I flew in between the storms. I dodged the rain drops. I got what I got. I’d do it again. Even a bad day on Maui is still a good day.

The red rocks and blue skies of Southern Utah provide striking scenes for aerial cinematography.

It was late afternoon when I was finally able to open my drone case and get some shots. I felt like I needed to hurry because there was so much beauty and so little time to fly. I barely scratched the surface, so to speak. The good news is, there is much to see and capture next time I go back.

The Bonneville Salt Flats landscape has a stark beauty. The salt preserves and corrupts. Very little can live in the salt. This far from civilization it may as well be another planet. Yet, the solitude, the harshness and the contrasts are inspiring. I would go back. I will go back. I will fly over the salt and the water. Next time, I will stay longer.

I  shot this drone footage with my DJI Phantom 4 drone. I also did the music.
