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 fiancée Melissa, and my son Logan.
For the past 2 years I have been engineering and filming for The BBC’s groundbreaking new series, Green Planet.
Below are some Behind the Scenes images of the robots and systems I have created.
