Shooting with Schat: A Day in the Life from Roadtrippers on Vimeo.

Spend a day in the boots of our Timelapse Photographer, Joel Schat, as he spends an average day on a roadtrip in the Grand Canyon!

Turn the Volume up, HD on and enjoy!!

I can hear my alarm going off, although I don't want to acknowledge it as I was up shooting the Milkyway until around 2 am the night before and am still very tired, running off around 4 hours of sleep.
*hits snooze*

5 minutes later the second alarm starts going off so I decided to pull the curtain back and check the weather to see if its worth waking up for. Each morning while still mainly asleep I hope that its cloudy but upon looking out the window and seeing the first bit of light starting to warm the sky I know it will be a gorgeous one so I immediately start to rush out of bed and get the camera gear together wondering to myself.. Why did I want it to be cloudy? Why did I sleep through my first alarm?

Once the fresh air hits my face I know i'm awake now and well.. you can watch the video and see what a day in my life is like!

    Fantastic thanks!

    Never before have I viewed time lapse photography. This is so cool! I have limited equipment; Canon T2i, Tamron 10-24mm wide angle and a Sigma 18-200mm lens plus a tripod. Could this at least be sufficient for me to attempt something like this?
