SOME OF MY FAVORITE PROJECTS & PLACES

THAILAND:

My favourite beach

In 2004 I spend a month at Than Sadet beach at Ko Phangan. It was one of the best months ever. In 2018 I returned, expecting the place to have changed a lot, as happens with any other great place. To my surprise almost nothing had changed! As if time stood still, unbelievable.

Later that year I went back and stayed another month to work on a movie project of this beach.

Mt Bromo ebook

M Bromo had been my nr1 bucket list destination for years. I visited it twice, for 35 days in total. Which is pretty crazy actually. But for me it was the perfect location to work on several projects. My Mt Bromo ebook is largely about my projects and has helpful info if you’re planning to visit!

Bali ‘Island of Gods’ timelapse

Cliche perhaps, as a destination, but nevertheless one of my favorite places.

Check out my Travel Guide and find all my Bali photos here.

Mt Bromo timelapse

I timed my visits during the Milky Way season and my main plan was capture this incredible location with timelapse and make a movie of it. Things didn’t come easy, but they never do. 

I shared all my tips in my Travel Guide and Photography Guide. View Mt Bromo photos.

TimeScapes

In short TimeScapes is about capturing the element of time by blending imges from my timelapse. I created a movie as well as various photo series using different techniques.

Final PH movies of my 4 favourite ‘Gems of the Philippines’  

I honestly think Philippines is one of the most incredible backpacker countries out there and yet it’s one of the most underrated travel destinations. I knew it a lot of good things to offer, but I was still blown away by it. My final Philippines movie is about the 4 places I liked best and spend most time at: Palawan, Batanes, Siargao & Batad.

10 months storm chasing at Siargao Island  

I love storms, nothing gets my adrenaline pumping as a good lightning storm. Trying to capture one as a timelapse is a challenge like no other. Back home in The Netherlands I never had much succes, but the first few months at Siargao gave me some terrific storms. So, I decided to stick around for the storm season.

Capturing the Perfect Storm at Dedon Island  

I was fortunate to create a timelapse movie at this incredible resort. The goal was to capture it from sunset to sunrise with the Milky Way at night in the background. I had 3 nights. Each night had lightning storms with lots of rain. It ruined almost everything, but one night a storm stayed far away and lasted 5 hours, giving me the chance to capture both a lightning storm and the Milky Way as a long timelapse. A worlds’ first! Not just that, I had 4 cameras shooting the same storm from different angles. As if that’s not enough, I even captured a couple of red sprites!!

Playing with fire & lights on a deserted island

One of my favourite places ever is Guyam island near Siargao, Philippines. For a small fee you’re allowed to stay overnight. With a 360 degree view, this place was incredible to capture the Milky Way and lightning storms. A few nights we played around with fire and lights to create some cool shots here.
