LOST AT SEA

"A sincere thank you to Peter Trayhurn for his time, patience and passion throughout the shoot. As the day progressed Peter shrugged off tiredness to assist any way possible in addition to sharing a very personal insight into that life-changing day almost four years ago. A subtle reflection of his true spirit and generosity."

"You can read the latest about Peter's ongoing battle with bowel cancer via his blog: petertrayhurn.blogspot.com.au/"

Aurora 2012

"Last week I was again in Norway for shooting northern lights. This time I was very lucky, there was a lot of activity on the sky especially on the 24 January. The scenes are from Ravnastua, Skoganvarre and Lakselv. The first two days I had a lot of trouble with frozen Cameras. It was -25°C (-13°F) and after 1-2 hours of shooting the lens was frozen."

Dreaming It{aly}

"I was asked to go to Basilicata, Italy to participate in a Digital Diary contest for the tourism board to show one of the most untouched parts of Italy... It was a rushed week, and I had to make two videos. I had two days to make this one, so I apologize about the little knicks here and there, hehe."

PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet

"PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting "creativity". The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites-- they just have to convince a judge that the site is 'dedicated to copyright infringement.'"

"The government has already wrongly shut down sites without any recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video with anything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitter do, would be considered illegal behavior according to this bill."

"According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill would cost us $47 million tax dollars a year — that's for a fix that won't work, disrupts the internet, stifles innovation, shuts out diverse voices, and censors the internet. This bill is bad for creativity and does not protect your rights."
