All shot this summer in California on my Canon 350D DSLR, mainly on the EF-S 10-22 and EF 24 L.

I am looking for work shooting on music videos, tv shows, features, and commercials, so if you think your projects could benefit from some beautiful timelapse shots, please get a hold of me. :)

I'm getting the new 5D and building a new multi-axis moco rig, so I should be able to deliver stunning 4K masters.

hey Tom,
great stuff, ive got a 40d which i was going to get a intervalometer for, i was wondering what you use for the panning in shot? is it a post pan, or are you using a remote head of sorts?

cheers

hey Nate, I use the Mumford Time Machine + rotary table. It's a stepper-motor panning moco system that is fairly cheap, very solid, and extremely reliable. It is capable of "shoot-move-shoot" shutter sync, which is vital at night.

Very beautiful work Tom, very inspirational. Really enjoyed the shots with the changing light on surfaces such as the rocks and trees. Keep up the good work.

Cheers

is there any compositing in the night sky stuff? if not how did you avoid star trails and still get good detail on the forground?

No composting. No digital tricks of any kind. These are all straight out of the camera. The foreground stays crisp because the camera is never moving while the shutter is open.

Hello Tom,
Your shots are just magical. So I just can't help myself to ask you this question. How could you achieve time lapse and camera move at the same time.
Is it really done just by moving camera so slowly, that when shooting is done, you just simply speed it up? Or is there any other technique, trick, animation, etc involved?
Keep filming, this is really beautiful stuff.
Cheers,
Paul

Thanks, Paul. All my motion shots done with a simple motion-controlled stepper motor panning head:

I will soon build a more sophisticated 3-axis moco system for timelapse.
