That’s a wrap on our mini-Maine expedition these last few weeks. Lucky to spend some time within the mountains and oceans that started it all for me. And of course it was the farmers, fisherwoman, craftsman and all other salt of the earth that truly bring it to life. Looking forward to sharing the finished TV spot when it airs in the spring. ~ @camp4collective @ansonfogel @visitmaine @bvkhq @visitmaine @katelynkristine24 @sonycine @daharbfilm @rudy.le @styrene1014 @katelynkristine24 @nickmarrazza @thecameradivision @leitzcine @sonycine @angenieuxlenses

Moon sweeping over Onekotan Island of the Kurils. Beyond the pretty pictures of this far off landscape between Kamchatka and Japan I think we came away with a greater story of science and communication with a heartfelt cast...

Video by @jwalter1337 @pamolacreative // Great to meet Jamie yesterday who has been bleeding to get time-lapse gems like this for the last three months for a series of short films for @visitmaine @bvkhq which we will also include in the @camp4collective TV spot. These types of moments take a next level of dedication and patience to capture and it’s great to see the younger generation carrying the toil-lapse torch. #timelapseaddict ~ @ansonfogel @rudy.le @daharbfilm @katelynkristine24 @nickmarrazza

Experienced something real yesterday on location with @camp4collective for @visitmaine @bvkhq. Blaine and Virginia have been married for over 20 years and have a daily lobster fishing routine of getting up at 2am to pull their family pots and watching sunrise seep around the craggy coastal islands. Although the lobster industry is generally under threat by climate change and a sign that we need to pay attention, it was great to see the care they took to only take certain lobster and throwing many less mature or females with eggs back into the sea. Just goes to show you don’t have to go to the roof of the world to experience true grit, magic light and salt of the earth. ~ 🦞 @ansonfogel @bvkhq @nickmarrazza @matthewturley @katelynkristine24 @rudy.le @daharbfilm @goodtimesgrip @sonyalpha @smallhd @teradek @tiffencompany @thecameradivision @angenieuxlenses ASs optimo 32-70 wide angle uncoated zoom anamorphic on the #VENICE

Kagi is smiling and Lakpah seems concerned as we hypoxically wait for the sun to hit at 28,000ft. This season past shifted my perspective on the evolving role of the climbing sherpas / high altitude guides...something that we will reveal in the upcoming @natgeo @sonyalpha films. Overall they are rightly exercising their power over the outcome of big foreign expeditions and gaining agency at the roof of the world. ~ Looking forward to sharing more soon within the film we have been cranking on with @jaymacaveli @taylorfreesolo @treefighter @lgnnelson @curtismorgan #everestmystery #alphafilms

Small farm, hard work, good people. Shooting @sheepscotgeneral today and all across Maine these next few weeks. Great to be back after after going to school here long ago to absorb the final colors of summer. @ansonfogel @bvkhq @visitmaine @camp4collective @ben10daniels @nickmarrazza @katelynkristine24 @rudy.le @daharbfilm @santwiches [@sonyalpha a7riv with 35mm at f1.4] #maine

encounter from our #fromkurilswithlove film. Although @tedhesser may have had a lot of sketchy prop destroying ship landings he did come back with this magical clip! ~ Words by @tedhesser: “Rare footage of the most endangered whale on earth, the North American right whale. I captured this yesterday in the middle of Pacific Ocean, and can’t believe the rainbow created by its spout. These whales were almost whaled to extinction in the 19th century. In the mid 20th century illegal whaling kept the numbers down despite many efforts to resuscitate the population. Having seen a number of whales on our trip so far, I’ve noticed that most whales dive deep upon first sight of our boat. Whereas this whale, the right whale, hovered around the surface and near the boat for hours. We think that’s why they are endangered, and apparently is even where the name came from. Essentially they were the easiest targets in the whaling frenzy of a bygone era. A friend of mine sent me a note that @nrdc_org has launched a global campaign to save these magical creatures. Let us know if you want photos or footage, we’ve got a bunch now! Pretty stoked we were able to spend a few hours with this guy yesterday. #fromkurilswithlove • • • @taylorfreesolo @jtkerby @rishisugla @tomorrow_unlocked @e_kaspersky @povel @_ryanhill_ @alejandroarango13 @ollyru999 @donreverendo @bigdaddivladi

This curious young male came from a long way off to slowly check out our ship as we moved through the pack ice. I really appreciated our guides policy for not affecting the behavior of any of the wildlife we encountered. I didn’t know that most polar bears are totally solitary for most of their lives and have to wonder what he though of our presence for the few sniffs of our big steel vessel he took before sauntering off into the arctic sunset. ~ Shot on the 600mm F4 @sonyalpha and the A7riv with tracking autofocus, hand held. Seems like a big step up from the A7riii and love the new ergonomics of this camera body. @snackfarmer @naturalworldsafaris @laurenfarmer @benjacksonnz @mparns @kaylalindquist @adorama @manfrottoimaginemore #svalbard #arctic

It doesn’t take much to realize the resilience of the far north and the need to protect this place. ~ According to a recent report commissioned by the Norwegian Environment Agency, Svalbard is the fastest-heating place on Earth. ~ @snackfarmer @laurenfarmer @benjacksonnz @naturalworldsafaris #arctic #climatechangeisreal #svalbard
