My name is Chris Field, I am a visual engineer specializing in long term botanical timelapse photography. I design and build all my own systems, and have pioneered new filming techniques allowing me to interact with the plants. I have designed and built dozens of 6-8 axis motion control rigs which are capable of filming multiple subjects simultaneously. I live in Littleton Colorado with my lovely wife Melissa, and my son Logan.
For the past 3 years I have been engineering and filming for The BBC’s groundbreaking new series, Green Planet. That exclusive contract has ended and have hit the ground running working on multiple other projects, from engineering, filming, consulting, and more.
Below are some Behind the Scenes images of the robots and systems I have created.
