A month ago I went to Jungholz in Austria to shoot the instructors and lessons at Mittelberg-Oy Ski School for their new website and brochures. Check out some of the shots below:
I shared some photos previously of my recent ice climbing trip in the Tyrol and here’s the video I’ve put together, all shot on the Sony a6300 with the Feiyu MG and Manfrotto BeFree Live.
I wrote previously about why I chose the Feiyu over a Glidecam and here’s another video to show you some of the footage you can get hand-held with the Feiyu MG.

Many years ago, I worked for my parents who own a video production company. Because it is a family business, you inevitably end up wearing many hats and being the czar of many different jobs. I mainly managed projects and worked as a video editor. On production, there were times that I was called on to work as an audio tech and was made to wear headphones on long production days.

I’ve used and tested a number of different stabilisers, gimbals and glidecams in the past, including the Movi, DJI Ronin, DJI Osmo, Glidecam XR 2000, Glidecam HD 4000 and the Feiyu WG for the GoPro. What’s the best solution for your videography? For me, as I shoot … Continue readingGlidecam vs Gimbal | What to buy?
