In 2012 I had the pleasure to produce the official video for the toughest alpine race in world, the La Patrouille des Glaciers .
Today I’m very happy to announce that our video has been slected as on
of the 15 mountain videos out of 150 to be part of the 2015 Swiss Mountain Film Festival .
The festival takes place in Pontresina from the 10th – 16th August and
our video will be shown on the 16th before the prize giving.
Would great to share this momnet with you all.
After years of yachting photography and dreaming about presenting my images on a IMAX screen suddnetly you get this magic phone call.
The Swiss National Museum of transportaion, (by fare the largest and most visited museum in Switzerland) was planning a special exibition about sailing and this is the museum with largest IMAX screen in Switzerland.
The selection of the photos turned out to be a challenge, you wnat as many as you can, covering different subject and following a story.
The editing of the video ws done by James McIntyre love the work he does.
Fitness test at the Swiss Olympic Medical Center / Schuthess Clinic in Zurich. In about one month the high altitude photo-shooting projects start and It’s time to check the fitness level.
It’s never enough, at least that’s what it feels. The outcome of the test was motivating but cruel too. I’m fit..ok I feel that myself, but how much and do I train the right way.
The heart range during the training was too high, this happens very easily, you skip a training session and the next one you push a bit harder to compensate and that’s a way to loose efficiency, that’s what I learned today.
From now on every second day 30 – 60 min jogging at a lower heart rate (125 – 135) and then once per week a ski tour to prepare the body for the long and hard ascents in case we can’t use the chopper.
Reduce the heart race but increase the training volume, let’s see if it works. Mid April onwards I will feel it. At least I lost 4 Kg since January, this is less weight to carry up on the mountains.
And you, how is your training going?
