Havasu Falls

A couple weeks back I visited a huge amount of Southwestern US icons, including what I feel is the most beautiful location I've ever seen: the Havasupai region at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Never have I seen colors like this. The water is truly turquoise and the sheer cliffs glow a vibrant reddish orange. Perfect for swimming on a warm day these falls create an almost tropical oasis in an otherwise arid landscape.

This small church was definitely one of the most enjoyable stops during our short stay in Iceland.

I often shoot long exposures and nothing about them really display exactly what our eyes can see, so every now and then it's fun to go crazy with some split-toned colors, especially when working with harsh, afternoon light.

I finally put together a collection of my personal favorite images from 2014 (a couple of which have not yet been shared). I'd be honored if you gave them a look. Thank you all so very much for your continued support and here's to a healthy and happy 2015!

2014 is going to be a year I cherish for the rest of my life, and I’ll preface this by saying how very grateful I am for this past year’s experiences and for the inspirational work I continue to come across on a daily basis, which constantly drives me to improve. The following is a collection of my personal favorite photography from 2014. You can click on the individual images for an isolated view. During January and February the deflated spirit ...

"Selfie"foss  // Skogafoss \\ Southern Iceland

500px: http://bit.ly/1AwMYKW

This has been a shot I've been excited to share and have been sitting on since getting back in late August. I was setting up the Sony A7 Infrared camera as quickly as I could in the rain, then noticed this fella so brazenly climbing the dodgy and soaked top of the troll's head (look closely--lots of faces on the features around Skogafoss). OK cool...orange jacket out in the rain...maybe he'll stand up. Nope. Just needed to get that "selfie." I busted out my Nikon and handheld a few quick shots. 

This is one of the most majestic scenes on the planet and you've viewed it a hundred times, but something about the tranquility of the rain at such a dynamic location meshed with someone risking it all for a "selfie" spoke volumes, both physically and culturally. There are a couple in this series from Skogafoss I'll be sharing.

Here is a short trailer for the film I have been working on. I wanted to create a simple version that shows the night sky scenes I have already shared and introduce a couple new shots used in the final edit.

Please be sure to watch in HD.
Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/113680694
Also available on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQX4KBr96VM

The final film is a compilation of work shot over the last three years while traveling for commercial shoots and dedicated time lapse photo trips around the US. It was filmed across various cityscapes, along multiple dramatic coastlines, and above and below several spectacular mountain formations. I spent countless hours exploring new areas, waiting for the right conditions while reflecting on the beauty around me, and setting up time lapse equipment in hopes of capturing unique scenes. 
 
I love shooting time lapses because the very essence of photographing hours that compress into seconds, dramatic changes in light and color that can only be revealed by speeding up time is magnificent. It’s an unbelievable feeling when an 8 second clip turns out after all the energy spent in the field and time editing.  

Naming a photograph can be challenging, but it’s necessary to tell the story of a single moment in time. Naming 45,000 images that are processed into a couple minutes has been extremely difficult. I started to think about why I am driven by photography and what has inspired me to follow this path. As I reflected on these questions, it became clear. My Grandfather was always an inspiration growing up, and even more so after he passed and I had time to reflect on his life. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him. Gvazdinskas is Lithuanian, and I wanted to make my first film a dedication to his inspiring memory. Laikas is the Lithuanian word for time and I feel this title captures the essence of the film and brings my inspiration, years of shooting, and months of post work to life.

I hope to have the full version of “Laikas" completed in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for watching! If you like it, I would be honored if you shared this post. Cheers!
