In years gone by, time lapse was always considered 'B-roll' and filler or secondary footage. In more recent times however, it’s become more popular with the range of motion gear lifting it to another level. We see it all the time now, on TV and online.
In 2016, one of my time-lapse movies was selected as a finalist in the New Zealand geographic Photographer of the Year.

Some of my footage has been licensed to overseas advertising production companies,including marketing campaigns here in Wellington.

I'm also available for commercial time lapse work.

Daily Grind shows rush hour commuters travelling to and from work. Others clips show the highways and streets which become the lifeblood of the city. We can also see beyond the reflective windows when day becomes night and observe office staff busy at work and others engaged in social interaction.
