Clean 2 Antarctica
In extreme conditions, in unknown terrain (Terra Incognita), you reach the geographic South Pole on solar energy, with an all-terrain vehicle made of waste plastic. An uncomfortable voyage of discovery that claims the ingenuity of man.
360 / Virtual Reality
The world is one big round adventurous place and we've been looking at a cropped view of it for way too long. As I love storytelling by its traditional film methods, 360 and VR immerse the viewer by showing the real deal of its image. It affects the viewer by immersing them and allowing them to interact with the content. With 360, viewers get completely engrossed and are transported to places they’ve never been. This new technique is developing rapidly, but yet there's no holy grail of usage; every 360 job is different and needs custom-made camera solutions to create high quality images.
After being outdoors for a while, I'd love to head home and spend time in the studio, post processing my work. My studio hours are often 80% of the total time required for a project. To maintain high standards and powerful stories the image quality needs to be optimized, well-edited and done smoothly before publishing.
Storytelling stimulates the imagination and builds a sense of community between tellers and listeners. I am in love with creating stories by documenting real-life action or by creating new branded content.
Photography has become my lifestyle. Capturing moments with both analog and digital cameras have become a daily habit. The story behind these moments is truly what matters most. Commercial branded content, human interest, sports documentaries, and the travelling lifestyle all have their own story to tell.
