An Exclusive Behind The Scenes Look
Behind the scenes as Sotheby’s prepares the Gunter Sachs Collection ahead of the sale on May 22nd and 23rd, 2012. Sotheby’s will be offering close to 300 works of art from the prestigious single owner collection. The sale is estimated to realise £20 million.
Almost 7200 pictures were used in this timelapse. The majority were shot on a pair of Canon 5D MkII cameras specifically set up for shooting this timelapse (with a 16-35mm f2.8L II and 24-105mm f4L), one being triggered by a Pocket Wizard Multimax and the other by the highly configurable IO Shutter running on an iPad 3. A GoPro HD Hero was used for the overhead view timelapse. Reportage images were shot on a Leica M9 and M9-P (using a 50mm Noctilux ASPH, 35mm Summilux ASPH and 28mm Summicron ASPH). The images were all processed in Apple’s Aperture and the video created using Apple’s FCP X.
Huge word of thanks to everyone involved, especially the team from Sotheby’s press office, the lighting crew , technicians and contemporary art experts.
Update: Thrilled to share that the video is published on The Guardian website.

I’m a big believer in having a good backup strategy; it’s absolutely essential in this day and age of digital everything. My friend and colleague Chase Jarvis has put together a great video showing how he approaches the challenges of photo and video backup workflow; definitely check it out.

I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be holding another free online seminar showing my workflow in Aperture, Photoshop and Nik Software’s range of plugins. With each new seminar I use new work, so even if you’ve attended one before, there will be lots of new stuff, so do join in. As always, there will be an opportunity for questions at the end. Hope to see you online

Business Design Centre, Islington,
London, 26 & 27 October
Canon Pro Photo Solutions is now in it’s second year and I have to say, its the best trade show I have ever been to. It’s more focussed towards professional photographers and enthusiasts who are at the top of their game. I really can’t urge you enough to check it out.
The format is in two basic forms; a large number of seminars and also exhibitors showing off their newest kit.
Photos By: Ant Upton, Antje Bormann, Jeff Ascough, LP & Luke MacGregor.
I’ll be there presenting my work and workflow (both photographic and video) in a seminar called “Moving Forwards With Photography & Video” over both days, in Seminar Room 1 from 14.00 to 14.50.
I’m also going to be with SnapperStuff (stand 49) showing my favourite ThinkTank Photo bags and helping anyone with their questions to do with bags or anything else to do with photography or video. Definitely try and pop by and see the new Retrospective and Sling range.
Hope to see you there!
