Arch Above Arches - a panorama shot combined from 5 vertical shots
Full Moon Silhouettes is a real time video of the moon rising over the Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand. People had gathered up there this night to get the best view possible of the moon rising. I captured the video from 2.1km away on the other side of the city. It’s something that I’ve been wanting to photograph for a long time now, and a lot of planning and failed attempts had taken place. Finally, during moon rise on the 28th January 2013, everything fell into place and I got my footage.
The video is as it came off the memory card and there has been no manipulation whatsoever. Technically it was quite a challenge to get the final result. I shot it on a Canon ID MkIV in video mode with a Canon EF 500mm f/4L and a Canon 2x extender II, giving me the equivalent focal length of 1300mm.

Posting a refreshing winter image might be good for the hot summer. This was taken during my last trip back in April. Arriving Lake Louise early in the morning, only a few people were there trying to capture the moments at this frozen lake.
It was my first time visiting here when it was completely covered with snow. Sun just rising above the horizon with lights hitting the top of the mountains.…

Humans are part of the natural order. We’re risen apes that acquired language and learned to use tools. Skyscrapers and spacecraft may seem unnatural, but they’re just as much a part of the natural order as beaver dams and bird nests. Boring electrical lines hint at the energy solution of a mammalian species. Open your eyes to the world you’ve grown accustomed to, and rejoice in the fact that you participate in the human project. - @ReidGower - twitter.com/reidgower

Alright! So basically this is my nature demo reel! My passion for the past 2 years has been to show off Creation as best I know how, which lead me to mountain tops, canyons, beaches and all sorts of spectacular places! I have been so blessed to be able to witness some of the things I’ve seen in the past 2 years. Thankfully I have been able to follow this passion of mine and continue to travel as I am extremely fortunate to work for an amazing company called Roadtrippers.com which allows me to travel and document roadtripping!

The hardest part of this film for me was finding the right song. It had been months of casual searching but finding nothing. Then one day while I was at home (Vancouver) sitting in church my pastor used this song to help prove a point, that we have a soul and that is what seperates us from the rest of nature, the second I heard it I knew it was perfect and I rushed home to start the editing process!
The song is called: Saturn - Sleeping at Last sleepingatlast.com

The equipment I used for this film includes a bunch of Canon gear:
5d2, 6d, 16-35, 24-70, 70-200,
Rokinon 14mm (great for stars)
A Bunch of Manfrotto tripods and my Motion Control!
Dynamic Perception makes some fantastic Sliders and now a pan/tilt head that is sweet but its the stage 1 that really changed things for me. It makes it possible to bring a slider on a long hike or on the airplane as its carbon fiber and super light!
