What Is a Vidéage® ?
A Vidéage® is my particular style of shooting and production. It is a collection of moving stills, animated stills, time lapse, and video all choreographed to music.
Points East - Prince Edward Island
We were commissioned to photograph the eastern part of Prince Edward Island. It was a wonderful experience and a fantastic opportunity to get creative with the work. This Vidéage® is intended as an audio visual meditation that captures the grace and beauty of this amazing island. I hope you enjoy it!
The Great American Coastline - The Pacific
Gareth Rockliffe and his wife and fellow photographer,Jan Soderquist, travel up the West coast from San Diego California to Cape Flattery in Washington State. Their quest is to capture the soulful beauty of America's coastline as it unfolds in front their lens' This Vidéage® is an audio visual meditation using a collection of their favorite images set to the impeccable music of composer Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)
The Other Side Of Necker
We were commissioned by Sir Richard Branson to photograph the flora and fauna that inhabits Necker Island. The images were all used in an updated version of the Necker Guide. This is a slideshow of the images that appeared in the guide book.
This was my first time experimenting and shooting video back in 2009. I've been a stills photographer for most of my life, back then a new generation of HD SLR cameras hit the market allowing high quality video to be recorded with the same stills camera. I found the creative opportunities to be endless and very exciting. I thought this self assignment would enable me to use my "portrait" eye to capture the personalities that collect at the Naples pier, from young lovers and vacationers to serious fishermen. All was shot one afternoon and evening using the Canon 5D MkII a 70-200 lens, a 50mm and a 24-70 lens.
