Last week I had the most amazing time hanging with an incredible group of time-lapse shooters and film makers as we gathered in Mammoth Lakes for the first (hopefully) annual Timefest. The retreat was the vision of Tom Lowe and Eric Kessler, so I was honored to help find a house and as a local welcome everyone to this special area. We went out and shot at some amazing areas from Mono Lake to the ancient Bristlecone Pine forest, to Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite.
The group of people was beyond amazing. Tom had his crew of apprentices and helpers, Dustin Kukuk (Dr Kanab), Nilo Merino Recalde from Spain, and his cousin Mike Goveia. Eric Kessler of Kessler Crane came out with Tom Guilmette, a boston based cinematographer and film maker. Vincent Laforet came up with Carson Garner and John. Mike Flores, Drew Walker, and Ben Wiggins also all came up. Everyone was so nice and so real, a house full of greats.
I shot a ton during the week, and while it maybe be a while before any of the time-lapses I shot are floating around the web, here´s a few of my favorite stills from Timefest.
