It's warm here in Upstate New York. Like really warm. Right now, it's 51 degrees. This entire week is forecast to be well above average. The warm, fair weather creates the perfect conditions to capture a sunset over a frozen body of water. Meltwater creates the perfect mirror to reflect the color of the day's last light. Winter is coming to an end and storm season is coming. Last night was only a beautiful reminder.
Iceland is the size of Ohio, but it feels vast and wild. it The landscape is more like a playground for giants. Huge rock formations and creeping blue glaciers exist in the south with only a few roads to access them. And the farmhouses and hotels that do exist out there seem even smaller in the empty spaces. The nights are heavy with zero light pollution.
A week along the coast was an eduction. The weather there is stronger and faster than anything we had encountered before. Our third day was spent in a severe gale from which we had to take shelter in a hotel at the foot of the Svínafellsjökull Glacier. But our time on the glacier was worth any amount of travel or logistical challenge.
Footage is being reviewed and complied and more content will be available soon. -Bulmer
This is a simple document of the day in the life of Geyser Creek is Spa State Park in Saratoga Springs, New York. The park is a treasure, especially on foggy late-summer-almost-fall mornings.
September is here, and with its arrival, the cold morning and warm afternoons that mark the end of summer. As a photographer and filmmaker, this is my favorite time of year, probably because the days are a limited edition. The fall is fleeting, only a few weeks. The urgency to get out and experience in enhanced by the feeling that soon, all the color will be gone from the landscape.
Footage form various locations around the Northeast, New York, and New Jersey. Late summer sunlight stitches all these clips together. Summer fading is one of the most visually stunning times of the year in Upstate New York. The color at sunset always seems just a little deeper. The conditions produced by cool mornings and warm afternoons are so beautiful because they are a limited edition, soon to be replaced my the equally beautiful but monotone color palette of winter.
Clips from on-locations shoots in Burlington, Vermont, Petersburg, New York and Albany, New York.
B roll from a busy July in Upstate New York. Deep summer is my favorite time of the year, by far. August and September in New England make enduring the cold and gray months of January and February worth it. This Video Field Note spans from the city to the countryside all painted in the light of a late summer sunset.
The past few weeks have been painful to watch through the lens the 24 hour news cycle and through the statuses of friends on social media. I'm not going to claim I know what it's like to be either be black in America or a member of law enforcement. I just hope that our nation can find some middle ground and heal. What I do know is that I am against unjustified killings of anyone regardless of race or chosen profession. We are all Americans and need to remember we are tied to one another. Commonalitles are more important than differences.
Clips from a busy June in Upstate New York. Production on Iceland Rising in in full swing. Watch for new teasers in the next few weeks.
Amber Waves: As a content creator and working photographer, I spend a lot of time in the car searching for locations to shoot footage. Over the course of my career, I have accumulated hundreds of out-of-the-way places to shoot stills and video. I have to admit, the process is fun. Exploring, even on a small scale, is fascinating. Each excursion out into the regions of the map that were once only names heard on weather reports is addicting. A dirt road, good music and a camera slung over the headrest of the passenger seat are all very satisfying after a gray winter.
Summer weather and farm roads are the perfect recipe for great on location shots.
Blurry and overt saturated and deliciously lo-fi, shooting real film on the New Jersey shore.
