2016 Wildlife Reel
2016 was an incredible year for wildlife cinematography. I managed to capture some awesome shots of wild animal behaviour and I can't wait for what 2017 has to offer!
Coffs Harbour: Whales and Osprey!
The beautiful world of the Coffs Coast is truly stunning. From the rain forest to the coastline, there is breathtaking scenery and an abundance of wildlife. I spent 10 days there filming it all and have come back with some stunning footage. Sit back and immerse yourself in the absolutely magnificent world of New South Whales' North Coast.
Kangaroos Boxing | 4K 120FPS Slowmotion
Kanagroos are Australia's most iconic animals. They often sleep or are very lazy and placid but occasionally all out war happens.
Whales can Fly!
Currently whales are heading back south down the Eastern Coast of Australia with their newly born young. The young enjoy playing while on the long journey back to the Antarctic and breach all along the coastline really adding some truth to the idea that whales do in fact fly!
A RED Morning at Homebush
The RED Epic Dragon is a top of the line cinematic camera, used on films like The Hobbit and BBC documentaries such as "The Hunt". I had a weekend to use this camera and filmed some breathtaking super slow motion video of water birds at Homebush's bird refuge near Sydney Olympic Park.
Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve
Koalas, Kangaroos, Emus, Platypus and Brolgas filmed at the amazing Tidbinbilla National Park in association with ACT Government and Australian Alps National Parks. Check out Australia's unique and iconic wildlife!
Waterbirds - Australian East Coast
Due to the location of where the East Coast of Australia is situated in the world, we are luckily enough to have a variety of migratory sea birds stop by the coast. This video shows off some of Sydney's and inland NSW's amazing sea and water birds.
Aussie Icons - Final Video of 2015
Australia has some amazing and unique wildlife that defines the country. Anyone who sees a Kangaroo, Wombat, Emu, Platypus or Koala instantly associate it with Australia. This video I called "Aussie Icon's" since it contains all of those unique animals (except the Koala because they we're to difficult to find in the wild) that defines Australia to the rest of the world. Sit back, relax and enjoy this short film showing off some of the best footage I have ever filmed. Enjoy!
Eagles and Falcons. Raptors Down Under!
Australia has some of the most stunning, beautiful and vicious raptors in the world. From the massive Wedge-tailed Eagle to the 'small' Nankeen Kestrel each have their own unique characteristics and badassery (yes I made up that word) that I find awe-inspiring. I made this video with a collection of shots from over the last year capturing these wild birds of prey in their natural environments in the hope to raise awareness for the importance and conservation of all raptors around the world.
Beautiful Australian landscape with super cute animals!
Australia has one of the most unique and amazing animal inhabitants in the world. In this video I tried to capture the stunning combination of the animals and habitats that they can be found within. The areas visited include Dunns Swamp, Newns, Regional Bathurst, Capertee and a few smaller, hidden areas I found along the way.
STUNNING AND COLOURFUL BIRDS OF NEW SOUTH WALES
I have been experimenting more and more with videography, I really enjoy the whole process from hitting that record button to editing and final presentation. I find it to be really interesting to see how the music and colour choices influence the video, whether it is in a good or bad way, that's for you to decide!
SHELLY BEACH, MANLY AUSTRALIA - DJI INSPIRE 1 DRONE FOOTAGE
If you live on Sydney's Northern Beaches or know of them, then you'll love this video! This is drone footage I recently filmed at Shelly Beach during a breathtaking sunrise. Shelly Beach is known for having awe-inspiring coral reefs and amazing fish life but the hidden gem in this video is on the outer side of the cove where the cliffs were formed by hundreds of years of rough seems and daily sunrises.
FRESHWATER BEACH SYDNEY
When I get new gear, I often spend a lot of time getting to know it before I use it in any special situation. This is a short video I took a few week ago using my new Glidecam HD4000 stablising system. Let me know what you think! Filmed at Freshwater Beach on Sydney's Northern Beaches and was shot from about 5;30am till 7am.
RURAL COUNTRY AUSTRALIA FROM THE AIR
A collection of shots I recently filmed in and around a property I recently stayed at, situated between Bathurst and Sofala in Central-West New South Wales. With these shots I really wanted to capture some of the niche beauty that can be found just off the beaten track. Focusing on the details of old trees and the great textures of dried up river beds and fields.
AUSTRALIA WILDLIFE - CUTE AND CUDDLY GUYS. BEST OF THE BEST FROM THE LAST YEAR
Animals are my favourite subject to photograph. I love being outside in the wild with them, just isolated from everything else. Sometimes though I record snippets of video as well. This is a video I made combining the best of the best videos I had from the past year. I hope you enjoy. Please feel free to share it around to help raise awareness about the importance of protecting and helping Australian wildlife.
BREATHTAKING HEADLAND - DJI INSPIRE 1 DRONE FOOTAGE OF LONG REEF HEADLAND
Video shot at Long Reef Headland, Sydney on a gloomy and cloudy morning during sunrise. I used my DJI Inspire 1 to capture all the footage and it was edited and graded in Adobe After Effects CC 2014. The sunlight was amazing and because it was cloudy, the sun would peak through the clouds occasionally, creating stunning colours.
NARRABEEN LAKES FROM THE AIR - DRONE FOOTAGE.
A short collection of shots that I took on a cloudy morning down at a local lake in Sydney here. The footage seen was recorded from 6am until about 8am where the light was constantly evolving due to the clouds obstructing and altering the sunlight, but in saying so it created breathtaking light to film in.
