In my brand new video, called Lake George Glacier Hike, I take you along with me during a summer hike out to an Alaskan glacier and give you a virtual adventure tour of this massive and remote ice field in the Chugach Mountains.
As with my film AERIAL ADVENTURE, this video is also set to an original music piece that I scored to add an air of majesty and wonder that the visuals evoke.
The Lake George Glacier is one of large ice fields in the Chugach Mountains of Alaska. I’ve explored this area a number of times over the years, and it’s always an amazing sight to behold.
During this summer’s visit, I was struck at how much the glacier has receded in a very short time frame. Three years ago, I was able to walk right out on the ice, but now, the edge of the ice lies hundreds of feet away from the surrounding hillsides and it’s much lower in elevation. Check out this blog post to see the dramatic difference in the ice levels compared to a few years ago.
All of the photos and most of the footage in this video was shot with the FUJIFILM X-T3 and the FUJFILM X100V. The music was recorded in Logic Pro X and the guitar solo as played on my sunburst Les Paul through IK Multimedia Amplitube software.
Before I bought my first camera, I studied music production and even took an intro to film scoring class at Berklee College of Music. So, here we are, nearly 30 years later, and I’m finally using my degree.
It’s actually quite fulfilling to expand and combine my interests in music and photography in this way, and it’s something I’ve aspired to for many years. I’ll still keep doing my video tutorials, but I definitely plan to add more adventure films like this to my YouTube Channel as well.
Enjoy the video, I hope it provides you with a fun and inspiring jump start to your Monday. And I’ve already got my next lesson planned, so stay tuned!
