I was here briefly for the opening of the International Photography awards. It’s always overwhelming to see your work on display 🙂
And… I had to take a few shots around Manhattan
I photographed Felix with his mum Eva at Redbull Hangar 7 in Salzburg for a British Sunday paper.
For those who may not know, Felix Baumgartner is the Redbull man who jumped off an air baloon at an altitude of 38.969m. The stunt gave him the world’s record for the height of the jump and for being the first man breaking the sound barrier outside a vehicle. For 17 seconds difference though the free fall time record is still held by Joe Kittinger’s 1960 jump.
Finally on the road again!!!!!
This time the plan is a quick 2-month-long (October+November) around the globe location shooting trip for my CGI stuff (backplates and HDRs) that should keep me busy in the coming cold, dark and claustrophobic winter time. The set itinerary for now is New York City, Los Angeles, Fiji, Sydney, Singapore and a-still-unplanned Indonesia. The latter mostly based on a documentary/travel key instead.
The stitching and processing time for the location shoots is proving rather time consuming and an average of 2,5 days per stop excluding travelling time – here’s a piece of my analytical Saxonised side for you 😉 – doesn’t help a regular and quick update of the blog. As a matter of fact doesn’t help keeping in contact with family and friends either – sorry mum!!!
I am already half way through my journey, in sweaty equatorial Singapore and I finally managed/decided to “chill and update”. I only have a NYC kind-of-done gallery to post for now but… watch this space 🙂
This is an update form my new base in Germany. I have recently moved to Munich and have been busy doing CGI post-production work and some location photography. I only have a few shots that I can share and here they are: Munich, taken after a shoot at the Haus der Kunst (Modern Art), Berlin, where I went last weekend for a quick catch-up with my old friend Masumi and some more location stuff for CGI taken near my hometown last Christmas. Hopefully more new photos from this part of the globe will follow soon. So… viel spass for now!
