AIR is a project born of my need to share an important lesson I’ve discovered over the past decade making aerial photographs: the world is much smaller than we think. Borders are irrelevant and distances shortened. Clearly, we are more intimately connected to one another than we may realize.
AIR is a once a lifetime experience for our team and I’d like to pay that passion and excitement forward with as many of you as possible.
I chose the title AIR because it’s something we all share and are all equally responsible for. By definition AIR doesn’t belong to anyone. It belongs to us all regardless of background, social status and origin, as does this project.
I want to invite you to share your stories and come together at a series of meet ups* we are organizing in each new city that we travel to thanks to everyone one of you who has supported AIR and a few visionary sponsors* (including G-Tech & Storehouse) who have helped this project take flight.
I sincerely hope you will share in the joy of AIR. I hope these images make you smile, or think, or feel for just a moment a little more connected to somebody you’ve yet to meet. Please spread this experience with others.
Will you take the next step and become directly involved in telling your stories of your cities?
A few of you will be invited to fly with us over your cities and many of you will be invited to join us for pre-flight meet ups in each city that we visit, this project will reach its full potential only once you share YOUR stories about your lives, those close to you, and your city with others around the world.
Finally, you always have the option to directly support the project by visiting the store on this site as the majority of those funds will directly go towards helping us visit more cities and continue to share Air with with everyone.
If you made it this far, I guess I can safely say: Welcome aboard to project AIR!
Sincerely – Vincent Laforet

“Treasures of Zakynthos” is a film completed in its entirety using the timelapse cinematography technique in the most beautiful parts of the Greek island – Zakynthos. Some of the places portrayed in it are typical tourist destinations, while others are unique, quiet and magical. The real treasures for the eye are the unexplored, off-the-beaten-path locations. The film lets the viewer experience the extraordinary nature and magic of the formidable Greek landscapes. Enjoy.

This film was made thanks to the enormous commitment of many wonderful people.

What’s new? What’s great? What’s not so?
My impressions about Lightroom 6:
– What about the promised increased performance and its influence for time lapse photographers?
– What about the new HDR-feature?
– How does the new panorama stiching perform and where are its limitations?
– How usable is the Face Recognition?
– Is the Slideshow module now finally usable considering the latest update?
I will answer to all of these questions in this video.
Enjoy watching!

Still NYC by Ynon Lan

This year I visited New York for the first time. Throughout my time there I was walking all around the city with my camera. I was looking for a way to portray all the different types of scenery and people that I saw as well as keep the constant energy of the city. I decided to take still photographs and compile them in a video as if they were one flowing motion.

Shot with a Canon 550D and edited on Premiere and After Effects.
All background ambient sounds were recorded on location.

PhotoTrekker.com presents “Skyward”, a 4K motion time-lapse film that captures some of the most majestic landscapes of America in stunning 4K resolution. Geared up with a Kessler Revolution 2 motorized head and a 5ft CineSlider, Keith Kiska and Kyle Rhoderick spent over 4 years to create this motion time-lapse film.

“This project is the culmination of all of our best nature time-lapses to date. Since we first got our hands on Kessler’s new motorized head 4 years ago, we traveled all over the country for weeks at a time, subjecting our new gear to the harshest conditions we could find, in hopes of getting that perfect time-lapse.”
-Keith Kiska
