The Southern Alps

The Southern Alps is a timelapse project shot over the course of a year in New Zealand.

 

The Southern Alps or Kā Tiritiri o te Moana is the name of the mountain range that forms the backbone of the South Island of New Zealand.

From March 2018 to March 2019 I made my home in the heart of the mountain range around the Central Lakes of Otago, including Lake Wanaka and Lake Whakatipu. 50,000 still images and over 1Tb of storage space went into this project. Only 5000 of which made the final cut.

The hope for the project was to focus purely on the mountains, how they change throughout the seasons and affect the weather of the area. Much of the footage is shot on longer lenses, focusing on the peaks of the mountain range.

 

Some of the mountains featured include:

Aoraki/Mount Cook

Roy's Peak

Double Cone

Walter's Peak

Mount Alta

Black Peak

Shot on: Nikon D750 Nikon D500 Images compiled in LRTimelapse and cut made in Premiere Pro

Timeless Ireland

Timeless Ireland showcases some of Irelands most beautiful locations through timelapse photography. Ireland is well known for its natural beauty, but I feel that is something Irish people themselves always forget.

 

This film was made in the hope of inspiring Irish people to explore their own country, get outdoors and take advantage of all we have to see and do here.

 

Some of the locations in the film are:

• Dublin

• Glendalough

• Derryclare Lough

• Sheeps Head

• Gougane Barra

• Mourne Mountains

• Wicklow Mountains

• Hook Head

• Achill Island

 

Shot over the course of almost 2 years, resulting in over 50,000 images and almost 1 Tb of storage space.

 

Footage is available for licensing.

Shot on the Nikon D750 and D7100 cameras with a variety of lenses and filters by Haida.

 

Thank you to all my friends that waited patiently during filming or who helped in any way during the editing!!

The Experience 2017 West Cork Ireland

The short film is about my adventures in West Cork.

 

This is a video I made in collaboration with Ignas Laugalis For the West Cork  film competition hosted by ATASTEOFWESTCORK. I am delighted to say we were able to take FIRST PLACE!

Big thank you to Ignas who came up with the idea after following along with some of my adventures as I shared them on social media. We spent 3 nights and 4 days camping and filming around West Cork, on 4 hours sleep a night to capture all this footage. Ignas still insists this was the most difficult video he has created to date!
