Svalbard! - 4k
A video showcasing the best sights of a 23 day trip around the Norwegian archipelago Svalbard in the Arctic Ocean. While traveling on the G Adventures ship the G Expedition, we saw some incredible scenery, amazing animals, and had some beautiful weather. No drones/gimbals were used for this video. Just good-old-fashion hand-held footage. For more videos and for photographs of the trip, please visit www.andrew-orr.com
California condors are an endangered raptor found in the western United States. The condor nearly faced extinction by the 1980s when the number of birds dropped to less than 30. Their main cause of mortality is ingesting lead bullet fragments left in carcasses and gut piles by hunters. Through captive breeding programs, the condor population has increased to nearly 300 in the wild and over 150 in captivity. Filmed at: Vermilion Cliffs, Badger Point, Marble Canyon, and Navajo Bridge in Northern Arizona. Special thanks to Diablo Trust and The Peregrine Fund.

Sandhill Cranes 2014 / 2015
A combination of video from 2014 and 2015 at Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area during the November Sandhill crane migration. The 2014 cranes were spectacular, but 2015 hasn't brought the highly concentrated numbers in yet. In 2014 there were estimated 40k birds. Music is by Ludovico Einaudi - Crane Dance

Bonne Terre Mine
A pretty cool experience diving in the Bonne Terre Mine in Missouri. It's expensive to dive there, but worth it at least once, IMO. Filmed with a Nikon D800E in a Nauticam housing with a Nikon 16-35mm f/4 lens with available light. Music is by Daft Punk, filming is by myself as is the editing. Divers include, Karen Ribordy, Jim Mondl, and Buzz.
2014 Straits of Mackinac!
We had a wonderful trip with suburb weather out on the lake. Water temp was 46F on the bottom and visibility was 20-50', possibly more in some places. Special thanks to: Precision Diving (www.precisiondiving.net) Shipwreck Explorers (www.shipwreckexplorers.com) Music is licensed through pond5.com
