Flying High: 

by Kessler Shooter and veteran nature photographer Shawn Reeder

As the title suggests,  Shawn takes you to the highest mountain tops where you’ll see snow-capped formations that frame fantastic clouds that seem to take on a life of their own. In some cases, in a blend of cloud shape and the light of the setting sun, clouds turn into what look like fire in the sky for a true effect.  But the sky is certainly not the limit on this one, as Shawn takes you even higher into space itself.  These awe-inspiring shots will show you the cosmos in a way that you’ve never seen.

Play full screen so you can count the meteors! Shot in Joshua Tree National Park and the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest during the Perseid meteor shower. Features ancient trees, lightning, rainbows, meteors, the Milky Way, and lots of stars. Enjoy!

Music is Fields of Honor by Justin R. Durban, justindurban.com
Ascendance is a tribute to nature’s unpredictable power and beauty. I went out to film the Perseid meteor shower but I encountered so much more. When you are out there, you never know for sure what nature will bring.

Always be ready for a magical experience. 🙂

by Garrit Pieper and Ciarán Ryan

“Somewhere” is a timelapse film about the world’s natural beauty alongside man-made industrial wonders.
I am a photographer with my main focus being nature and industrial work. My colleague, Ciarán Ryan, comes from a post-production background. Our paths crossed a few years back when we worked on a few jobs together and we kept in touch. About 18 months ago we got to talking – I wanted to take my creative side further by perhaps crossing into film and Ciarán wanted to learn more about the actual production end of things rather than just working in the post side of it. We decided that time-lapse was a natural step for us to whet our appetite for film. So we are the people behind Miadox and on March 21st of 2012 we opened our doors for business.
