Gunther Wegner, based in northern Germany is a well-known time lapse-, nature-, landscape and wildlife photographer. He is the originator and developer of the market leading solution for time lapse photography, LRTimelapse and is a pioneer in the research of day-to- night and night-to- day shooting – the so called “Holy Grail” of time lapse photography.
Gunther was born in Brazil in 1974 but has lived in Germany for the last 30 years. In 2012 he decided to leave his regular job in IT project management and dedicate himself full time to his talents in the fields of time lapse, photography, film making and blogging. He has worked for German broadcasters including NDR Naturfilm as well as international ones such as NHK.
In addition he offers workshops, coaching and guided photo trips to destinations all over the world for professional film makers as well as amateur devotees. He travels a great deal, mainly in South-, Central-America and Africa.
With his latest productions – African Skies, Altiplano Skies, African Skies 2 4K and most recently Northern Skies 4K, he not only demonstrated technical achievability but also raised awareness of diverse environmental topics and donated some of the revenues to animal welfare causes.
Here is an interview Gunther gave to the Video Film TV Makers Magazine after a lecture in Prague.
