Fly fishing, photography and filmmaking

 

IMG_0169I’m entering the filmmaking scene at the moment: Mostly because it makes sense. After being a writer and photographer all of my adult life, film is the natural next stepping stone for a dude, who likes to document his life as a fly fisherman and fly tier.

I knew that. But I wasn’t really up to the challenge. Anyway… now I’m in deep. And the big surprise is… well… it is a lot of fun and deeply satisfying to work with living pictures, soundtracks, music and stuff. And my wife Ulla has got talent for -and lots of interest in – especially the cutting and editing process.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMy initial plan was to travel light, which means use pretty straight forward equipment, and don’t let movability be restricted by unnecessary heavy loads.

I use my old Canon EOS 600D for most of the filming. But I needed something for the underwater shooting. So after researching quite intensively I bought an Olympus Tough Stylus TG-4 All Weather camera. Plan was to use it only for the underwater clips of flies swimming in streams and lakes. But this little bastard turned out to be my go-to camera for most things action, splashy, unexpected and naturally… wet. This is by all means a fabulous little camera – shooting full HD films and RAW pictures in 14 MP. It is crazy good for macro shooting as well.

Here are a couple of pictures and films recorded with this camera. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
