Really excited about this PXW-FX9 event in Dubai on the 14th of January at 5pm. Garage Studios are building us 3 amazing film sets full of props, great actors with great period costumes. This won’t be a PowerPoint presentation, we will shoot a short film, grade the material, showing all the FX9’s key features. It will challenge the camera. It will probably challenge me! It will be fun, you will be surprised. I’m not going to reveal the film subject yet, so come join us if you can.
Want to know more about the PXW-FX9? Why not come to one of the half day sessions I will be presenting at in London on October 16th. We will have a camera and there will be sessions on what’s new, plus your chance to see the beautiful images this camera produces.
I will be in Stockholm on October the 9th to demonstrate the new PXW-FX9 as part of Sony’s FX9 roadshow. There is a morning and an afternoon session. For more information and to book a place on the morning session please CLICK HERE.

There are still spaces at the Interfoto Video Camp in Oslo next week. I will be there on Wednesday to give a presentation on how I use various Sony cameras including the A7s, PXW-Z90 and PXW-FS5 and FS7. In addition I will be talking a bit about HDR and how I shoot the Northern Lights. In the evening I’m going to give a talk on my career, how I got started, some of the things that help me get to where I am today and where I plan on going from here.
As well as myself there are many other speakers with presentations on all kinds of topics from video production and sound to streaming and gimbals. For more details please click here.

I’ve been running my Aurora adventure tours for 11 years and so far every trip has seen the Northern Lights. This year I had a couple of guests that had already travelled to Iceland and Finland in search of the Aurora, but had not seen it. So it was wonderful to see their faces when the Northern Lights came out to play for us most nights.
For the last couple of years I have been basing the tours out of Alta in Northern Norway, travelling from Alta to some cabins far off the beaten track at very special place just outside of the very small town of Karasjok. We stay at the cabins for several reasons.
1: It’s very different – only accessible by snow scooter.
2: It’s truly beautiful – a chance to get back to a slower way of life for a few days.
3: Clear skies – this location seems to deliver clear skies when many other areas are cloud covered.
4: Adventure – where else can you stand on the top of a hill and not see anything else man made from horizon to horizon.
So why not come and join me for an adventure you’ll remember forever? I’ll help you take your own photos or video of the Aurora if that’s what you want to do. Or just come and enjoy a bit of Sami culture as our host Oskar cooks traditional meals of reindeer, elk and salmon before we enjoy a traditional Sauna. During the day we go ice fishing, head out up on to the arctic plateaux by snow scooter or go dog sledding through the snow covered trees of the forest.
I’ve worked hard this winter to get the very best deals on the hotel and cabins that we stay at. As a result the cost of the tours is now lower than the past couple of years and I am even able to offer a really amazing early bird deal for those that book and pay 6 months before the tour. Full details here.
