The City

The City from WTK Photography on Vimeo.

This timelapse is about a year in the making. I started sometime in June of 2010 and finished it on August 19, 2011. It wasn’t constant work of course, just working on it every now and then. I’d estimate I have invested anywhere between 250 and 300 hours on it. Most of this was time I spent walking, biking, or riding the bus to locations I was shooting. There are very few locations I used a car to get to. Total frame count is about 28,000 frames and 85 different shots. All the frames weren’t used in the final product as I edited down the clips. You will notice that some of the shots were shaky. San Francisco is a very windy city and even my heavy tripod couldn’t remain still. In hindsight I should have bought a different head. All photos were shot in JPEG and then some light editing in Lightroom. Compiled into .mov clips in Quicktime Pro and then all brought together in Final Cut Pro.

I started this project because there are so many people photographing the city that I wanted to capture it in a different way that most were not. Between the time I started and the time I finished, timelapses have become huge. It’s amazing to see what fellow artists can make with even the most basic equipment.

WHY Wally-Hermés Yacht

The WHY yacht concept was created through a partnership between high fashion house, Hermés and yacht builder, Wally.

Hermitage Plaza

Foster + Partners released their first video scheme for the Hermitage Plaza in La Defence, Paris. Dripping in class futuristic skyscrapers gleam over the Parisian skyline. Imposing yet necessary they give Paris a much-needed modern feel.  The two towers will be the tallest mixed-use towers in Western Europe at a monumental 323 meters (1,060 ft). The buildings will likely be completed by 2016. Costing over €2,500,000,000 this modern wonder will have 93 floors, 534 apartments, 18 levels of offices, 201 hotel rooms along with other luxuries like cafes, restaurants, boutiques, and art galleries.
