Sometimes we would go days without seeing animals, but then we were rewarded: Filming #caribou on the south side of the #brooksrange in the Arctic Refuge. My brother Salomon Schulz and I were camping for weeks in different parts of the Refuge using arctic oven tents for the base camp. The @reddigitalcinema cameras did fine in the cold but we had to figure out recharging the lithium batteries with solar cells out there. @florianschulzvisuals #shotonred #arctic #wintercamping #wildlifefilmmaker
It was so much fun to present with #natgeolive in #seattle at sold-out @benaroyahall for 3 nights in a row. The Seattle audience was just amazing! We love you! Thanks for the laughs, cheers and intermittent applause - you created an atmosphere that made it such great fun presenting: “Into The Arctic Kingdom!” Thanks for helping spread the conservation message to protect the Arctic Refuge!

An image from the good old days of film. This shot of the beautiful Tetons was photographed on a Fuji 6 x 17cm large format camera. Looking forward to flying to Jackson tonight to take part in the Jackson Wildlife Film Festival this coming week. #landscapephotography #shotonfilm #florianschulzphotography #GrandTetonNationalPark #Mountains @jacksonholewild @florianschulzvisuals
At the heart of my ShotOver stabilized gimbal system is often the 50-1000 zoom lens with the 8K RED Helium. As the lens does not allow a wide open aperture it is great to see the great low light capability of the Helium sensor. It is just the best true full frame 35mm telephoto set up for wildlife. Despite the heavy payload it is rock solid on the ShotOver! I am looking forward my return to Baja, where I will be installing the F1 to my boat and film whales and dolphins as well as Baja Californias coastal landscapes. #reddigitalcinema #shotover #wildlifefilmmaker #cinematography #dp #florianschulzphotography #8k #wildlifeshooter #filmmaking #aerialfilming #filmgear #cameragear @shotover @florianschulzvisuals #redcc
The super cub airplane is one of the best ways to get around in Alaska's vast wild landscape. It is only a two seater airplane but can land in places most other airplanes cannot. I've been fortunate to spend hundreds of hours in the air with some of Alaska's best Bush pilots who have become great friends. I use the super cub to get into remote areas, scout out locations and do aerial still photography. One just has to become used to shooting around the wing struts. #FlorianSchulzVisuals #FlorianSchulzPhotography #AerialPhotography #Alaska #BushFlying #SuperCub
Filming bears with my brother Salomon in Alaska. It has been great to spend so much time in the field together! We were out for two months that year in multiple locations along the Alaska Peninsula. What an incredible place! This is from a few years back when I got into the moving pictures. I love it both - stills and film and they are equally powerful. But filmmaking - especially wildlife demands so much gear and is so much more complicated, permits alone .... :) #reddigitalcinema #wildlifefilmmaker #alaska #florianschulzphotography #florianschulz #brothers @florianschulzvisuals
Filming aerials in arctic Alaska. I am running the Cineflex Ultra with the RED Helium 8K and the Fuji 42x lens. One of the greatest tools in #wildlifefilmmaking ! We ordered a special B4 adapter to greatly improve the sharpness. #reddigitalcinema #florianschulzphotography #aerial #aerialcinematography @florianschulzvisuals
Shooting the large caribou migration in Alaskas Arctic. We turn day and night around because of the golden light during midnight hours. Enormous groups of caribou came together in the coastal plain of the Arctic Refuge.
On the nose of the JetRanger is the #Cineflex Ultra. Inside the gimbal the 8K RED Helium camera with the Fuji 42x lens. I love to have the option of really tight zooms while still being able to pull all the way back and shoot a wide angle scene if necessary. #florianschulzphotography #reddigitalcinema #wildlifefilm @florianschulzvisuals
This October I am giving a series of Nat GEO Live talks in Washington D.C. (17th) and Seattle (22nd - 24th). I am taking the audience "Into the Arctic Kingdom" - following polar bears and other wildlife across the arctic. #arctic #natgeolive #natgeo #florianschulzphotography #seattle #washingtondc #wildlifephotography
