Silent Storms is my fourth consecutive aurora/astro film. In a way Silent Storms shows how the night skies can be during the three seasons we have darkness here in northern arctic Scandinavia; autumn, winter and spring. It was filmed in Norway, Finland and Sweden, primarily around the Tromsø area, Norway.
The “storms” referred to, are the geomagnetic storms which takes place in the atmosphere when a strong solar wind hits earth, often followed by a CME. When a geomagnetic storms takes place, it can last for days, with several substorms causing auroras to appear. Although there has been reports of audible auroras, this has yet to be proven scientifically.
Shooting through these different seasons raises different challenges, and opportunities. Late august/early september you are still battling against the sun, with the skies appearing very bluish. When the sun finally is low enough beneath the horizon, and there is still no snow, you have pitch black darkness, and it is difficult to use and lit foregrounds properly, unless the moon is present. At this period, I find using silhouettes exciting. When winter has settled you have the most beautiful period, with snow coverd trees, icy reflective grounds, partially frozen rivers etc. In March/April when spring arrives, sun is coming back, causing bluish skies again, but you also get beautiful colors from the sun in the horizon to combine with auroras, if lucky.
Shooting milky ways/startrails this far in the northern hemisphere is challenging as well. First because of the obvious that we cannot see the strongest parts of the milky way up here, but also because there always seem to be som auroras “interfering” when you’re planning to shoot an astro shot, even if activity is reported to be low.
The film is made primarly of stills, two sequences are realtime video (03:17 and 03:38). The still sequences has been slowed down in post to a speed I feel is representative for a fast to to normal authentic moving aurora, although still to a speed/length which allows fitting the sequences within the timeframe of such a short video.
Some sequences was added panning to using motion control and rails from Dynamic Perception.
The film is available in 4K/UHD, please contact for licensing inquiries.
Shot using Canon DSLRs + lenses. The realtime sequences was shot in RAW 14bit video using Magic Lantern Firmware on the 5D Mark III.

‘Beyond’ presents poetry in colorful motion and music. In 3 distinct movements, its enchanting tour of Beno’s audiovisual craftsmanship lifts you from the electrifying buzz of the present to vistas of near-future tomorrows: Sparks of Inception; The pulse of the Organism; From Here to Beyond.
‘Beyond’ relates the seemingly limitless power of human imagination to create and transform on a scale far beyond our own. It is a tall tale of inspiration, courage, determination, tenacity and perseverance through adversity. Shot at locations throughout Abu Dhabi and Dubai, ‘Beyond’s implicit story is about much more than the success of the UAE. What is unfolding in the UAE is a shining, symbolic example of the towering achievements of mankind as a whole.
Showing off the best of 2 years worth of shooting, ‘Beyond’ doubles as Beno’s ‘out-of-the-box’ showreel of client-commissioned time-lapse photography work between 2011 and 2012.
The musical score was composed expressly for ‘Beyond’ by the immensely talented, award winning composer Vladimir Persan. His gift for music seems to have no limits and having heard most of his past work, it can be said with certainty that his score for ‘Beyond’ is among his finest.
It’s an incredibly cinematic, rich, multi-layered and complex piece of work.
Do yourself a favor; listen only with proper speakers or headphones. You’d be missing out any other way.
You can purchase Vlad’s score from Amazon and iTunes:

This is a personal project of my last trip to Vietnam. We travel for one month across Vietnam, from south to north, and spend about 90-100 hours in buses, motorbikes and bycicles.
The timelapses were made in: Muiné, Dalat, Hoian, Hue, Ninh Binh And Sapa. Some timelapses are discarted for different reasons.
To make the timelapses I used:
- Canon 5D markII
- Canon 7D
- Sigma 24-70mm f2.8
- Tokina 11-16mm f2.8
- Tamron 17-50mm f2.8
- Canon 50mm f1.4
- Mini trípod
Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, CA captured this time lapse imagery of the ‘Blood Moon’ lunar eclipse, from moments before Earth completely blocked the Moon’s view of the Sun until full totality when the moon is fully bathed in ‘umbral shadow.’ Video: Why It Turns Red: http://goo.gl/l5EZ4I
Shot on the streets and rooftops of sunny LA, our A-Z of Dance shows you how to set hearts alight and clubs on fire. Float like an Arabesque, spin like a B-Boy, wobble like a Chicken Noodle Soup… it’s time to step up! In a very special project for i-D and Diesel, director Jacob Sutton has captured the world’s hottest dancers walking in the air in their Jogg Jeans and cut-offs. Lil Buck shows us the way of Memphis Jookin, super-thighs Nicole the Pole – star of Rihanna’s “Pour It Up” video – takes us to a whole other level and, fresh from the Rick Owens catwalk, the Soul Step team show us how to dance to Le1f. Combining denim, jersey and 360° stretch, Diesel’s Jogg Jeans allow successful krumping for all. Enjoy!
