During June and July I returned to my second home and families in Norway. What a joy it was to be amongst mountains and lakes in the warmth and beauty of a Norwegian summer. Two weeks in the Mesna area saw adventures with Icelandic horses at the home of Birkebeinerspelet before working with two clients, Eurostop and Hunderfossen. It was also my first opportunity to use my drone in the country, and it was a marvel. The Hidden project is continuing well with some exciting announcements (and a new trailer) coming very soon. The video above is my homage to summer in Norway, along with my love for the vocals of Peter Gabriel. I hope you enjoy it.
I am so pleased to add a DJI Mavic Pro to my photographic arsenal. Having owned a first edition DJI Phantom in New Zealand (which I sold a few years ago), the release of the highly portable Mavic Pro late last year confirmed to me that drones have really come of age. Amazing results come from small packages and I will be taking the drone with me to Norway early next month to capture some of the stunning scenery that Norway dishes up in bucket-loads. The video above is my first real edit, from my first real flight. I can’t wait to add to my portfolio as I continue flying in various countries. Featuring 4K video and raw image capture, the Mavic from DJI amazes me with its advanced development and compact design. Upon my return from Norway I will also be following up on video and imagery opportunities here in Perth. Watch this space!
