Technical Cinematography and Photography

Welcome to the site!

Here's some of the latest projects I'm working on, and some examples of the work I produce.

Three takes on one scene

Here's the results from a little trip I took up to the Blue Mountains in August
This show three variations on the same shot. Starting with the time lapse video, compiled from 750 individual photos.

Next we have a single still from the timelapse, click to see the full size version.

And finally a composite that was created by layering 180 stills together using Adobe Photoshop, and 6 hours of intervention to remove clouds and some other anomalies.

A Life Uploaded - The Rob Mulally Mini Doco

I've been very slack not getting this up until now..
We shot this back in December '15 and January '16, mainly on a Freefly Alta with a Red Epic, but also some DJI Inspire and some ground work with a Movi gimbal in order to show off some creative and drone skils :)

It's already been used to open the Australian Drone Film Festival this year, and has just been selected to feature in the Guangzhou International Documentary Film Festival in China.

This one's worth going HD, full screen, with the music up!

Red Epic, Freefly Alta Drone, M15 Movi gimbal

Check me out on Steller Stories!

It's my first day on the app, and I managed to get flagged by Steller as one of their feature stories!

This one is all about was going on behind the scenes during the filming of the Rob Mulally documentary

Stunning views from the Arboretum across to the Telstra Tower and to Parliament House.

Shot at 1,000ft above the CBD over 4 hours

Canon 6D @ 8mm, Sony A7S @ 16mm

High by the beach

A little bit of the Sydney beaches in the sun, shot over the last week with SwarmUAV .

Looking forward to more flying with some great new kit from Freefly coming soon :)

Vivid Sydney Time/Hyperlapse

Here's 2 hours + of some Vivid Sydney action. This is just a small part of what the festival has to offer.

This footage was all shot in and around Circular Quay, and there's plenty more to see around the rest of the city.

Sony A7S @ 70mm & 50mm, Canon 6D @ 16mm

Central Park Sydney Timelapse

Check out this day to night timelapse shot for the Central Park Sydney apartments .

It was shot with 2 cameras and the movie flicks between the two with the aid of some rather nifty post processing skills. You're welcome.

Sony A7S @ 200mm, Canon 6D @ 16mm

Barrenjoey Head

Spent another night out by a lighthouse capturing star trails. This time I was up on Barrenjoey Head at Palm Beach. Here's some stacked photos from the upcoming timelapse video. Click on the photos for the large version.

Barrenjoey Lighthouse Zoom

Sony A7S, Canon EF f/2.8 24-70mm at f/3.5, 40mm, multiple stacked shots at 35 sec ISO 800

Being a fairly tight angle, the stars appear to move faster through the frame, which is great in the time-lapse, but leaves gaps in the star trails in the stacked photos

Barrenjoey Lighthouse Wide

Canon 6D, Canon EF f/2.8 16-35mm at f/3.5 , 16mm, multiple stacked shots at 45 sec ISO 800

Love all the crazy burnt bush on this shot

Palm Beach

Sony A7S, Canon EF f/2.8 24-70mm at f/3.5, 24mm, multiple stacked shots at 10 sec ISO 3500

The light pollution and air traffic from Sydney are really apparent here. If you look carefully at Palm Beach, you can see Alf Stewart complaining about flaming mongrels.

Our new Rotor Works Showreel is now live!

Take a look at some of our favourite aerial shots from the last year. Using drones has helped revolutionise aerial cinematography for films, TV and Tv commercials in the last 2 years.

Rotor Works prides itself on being at the cutting edge of the industry.

Manly bracing itself for a downpour on Tuesday morning.

A swing and a miss, took too long to get myself to North Head today and just caught the tail end of a storm passing through Sydney.

Shot over 2 days in the picturesque Blue Mountains, 2 hours from Sydney. Edited in less than 12 hours, demonstrating that technical shots don't always need a long turn around in post. Purchased in part by Destination NSW.

A 2 week project showing off Sydney in Spring time, shot in October. Available for licensing.
