[SOUND ON!] 2019 was a challenging year, both personally and professionally. On one hand, we completed projects and collaborated with brands we had never dreamed of, but on the other, we often struggled to keep a healthy approach to life and treat each other with respect. Creatively, our 2019 was also a year of hyperlapse videos, which rekindled our creativity and soon became the focal point of our photography work. I can't remember the last time we have been so passionate about what we do. In 2020, we will focus on a few major hyperlapse film projects, as well as teaching - above all, the launch of our Creative Hyperlapse Masterclass, that we are thrilled to announce. Thank you all for your support and we wish you a peaceful and fulfilled year ahead. 🔥 Sandro & Boris
This past summer we embarked on a journey to the Baltic Sea on our first ever cruise trip, which is admittedly way too late for two naval architects. Our two-week adventure took us to grey Riga, stunning Stockholm and its 30 000 island archipelago, underrated Helsinki, and modern Tallinn, all onboard @tallinksilja_germany ships. Other than interesting cities and coastal landscapes, this cruise showed us that getting from A to B can also be an enjoyable experience: from great food, live entertainment, to night skies so starry that they looked photoshopped. It almost felt weird traveling without rushing, squeezing in packed planes and buses and all the stress that comes along. Thank you @tallinksilja_germany for the experience. #MiniCruise #sponsored Photos: 1 ) Old Town, Tallinn 🇪🇪 2 ) House of the Blackheads, Riga 🇱🇻 3 ) Riga-Stockholm cruise onboard #TallinkRomantika 4 ) Gamla Stan, Stockholm 🇸🇪 5-6 ) Stockholm-Helsinki cruise onboard #SiljaSerenade 7 ) Senate Square, Helsinki 🇫🇮 8 ) Helsinki-Tallinn cruise onboard LNG-powered #TallinkMegastar 9 ) Old Town, Tallinn 🇪🇪 10 ) Golden hour handrails @ f/1.4 See our previous posts for more impressions from the trip. === #tallinksilja_germany #hellofrom #tallinn #riga #stockholm #helsinki #beautifuldestinations #voyaged #wonderful_places #bealpha #myhelsinki #visittallinn #visitestonia #visitstockholm #visitsweden #rigastories #tallinksilja #cruise #cruiseship
[SOUND ON!] Maiasmokk, the oldest operating café in Estonia (1864 ), is famous for its century-old interior and a marzipan museum on the premises. Now, marzipan couldn't possibly rank lower on my all-time food list, so I went for a hyperlapse instead. For this shot, I decided to go for a left-to-right movement while keeping the middle window in the center of the frame. Corners of the neighboring buildings provided a smooth in-camera blocking transition, so there was no need to spend much time in post-production. Finally, to make things more interesting, I tried a moving-to-static transition, which turned out way more challenging than I had initially thought, both shooting and stabilizing. 🎶 Padespaan by Klapp | @visittallinn @visitestonia === #tallinn #visittallinn #visitestonia @kalev_eesti @kohvikmaiasmokk #estonianway #tallinksilja_germany #minicruise #sonyalpha #voyaged #beautifuldestinations #tlpicks #living_destinations #bealpha #artofvisuals #moodygrams #streets_vision #zhiyun #timelapse #hyperlapse #creativevideo #loop #mylpguide #hellofrom #filmmakersworld #atomos #AccidentallyWesAnderson
The last leg of our Baltic/Scandinavia trip brought us to Tallinn, the picturesque capital of tiny Estonia. The story of Estonia is rather impressive. After losing nearly 25% of its population in WWII and 50 years under the Soviet ruling, it regained independence in 1991, together with other Baltic states. But unlike many countries from the Eastern Bloc that still struggle with their "newly" found freedom, Estonia successfully transitioned to market economy and is today considered one of the most digitally advanced societies in the world (they vote online lol ), with Tallinn on the forefront of that revolution. Coming from an ex-communist country myself, learning about such success stories makes me happy and sad at the same time — happy to see what can be achieved if we just decide to stop living in the past, and sad that no one in Croatia is taking note. Huge thanks to Tallinn's finest @karlmarkusantson for the tour around town 🔥 @visittallinn === #tallinn #visittallinn #visitestonia #estonianway #tallinksilja_germany #minicruise #voyaged #voyagedr #beautifuldestinations #tlpicks #living_destinations #bealpha #artofvisuals #moodygrams #streets_vision
While not the most grandiose of cities, Helsinki won me over with its laid back urban vibe, a cool mixture of old and modern architecture, and the most charming part - the no-bullshit mentality and the dark sense of humor of its people. Whether in my short Helsinki experience or in my infamous arctic engineering career, I'm yet to meet a Finn that didn't leave an impression, whether positive or negative. And call me crazy, but in today's increasingly sterilized society, I find that extremely refreshing to find.

[SOUND ON!] Did you know that this cathedral was featured in the music video for Sandstorm by Darude, a 1999 megahit, and one of the most ridiculous and catchy songs of all time? From the moment we started planning our Helsinki trip, I knew I had to do an hommage to the great Finnish trance maestro. My initial idea was to use Sandstorm as the soundtrack for this hyperlapse failed when I realized how silly that would've sounded. @darude , thank you for all the childhood memories. You were like a father to me. === #hellofrom #helsinki #finland #suomi #myhelsinki #visithelsinki #tallinksilja_germany #minicruise #moodygrams #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #bealpha #voyaged #beautifuldestinations #tlpicks #yourshotphotographer #mylpguide #tallinksilja #hyperlapse #timelapse #filmmakersworld #zhiyun
[SOUND ON!] On the last evening before boarding our @tallinksilja_germany ship to Helsinki, we found our way to the oldest square in Stockholm. Tired from another long day of shooting, I could only use my last bit of energy to find the nearest bench and watch the last evening sun disapppear behind the buildings 14 to 22. Sandro, as the true older brother and a seasoned professional, wasn't willing to let the blue hour slip away so he started setting up the slider. Just watching him going through all that hassle was painful, but from this perspective, it seems that it was worth it. Somehow it always is. Goodbye Stockholm, you were great. #ad @tallinksilja_germany #minicruise #siljaserenade === #hellofrom #stockholm #sweden #sverige #visitstockholm #visitsweden #moodygrams #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #bealpha #voyaged #beautifuldestinations #tlpicks #yourshotphotographer #mylpguide #tallinksilja #tallinksilja_germany #tallinkromantika #hyperlapse #timelapse #filmmakersworld #edelkrone
[SOUND ON!] It's been a while since our last loop. I shot this one at one of my favorite corners of Gamla Stan, Stockholm's charming old town. The 183-photo sequence took 13 minutes to capture, which must have looked creepy to that one elderly resident who observed me through the window with a suspicious look on his face. #visitstockholm === #hellofrom #stockholm #sweden #sverige #visitsweden #moodygrams #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #bealpha #voyaged #tlpicks #beautifuldestinations #yourshotphotographer #mylpguide #Zhiyun #ZhiyunHalloweenContest #tallinksilja #tallinksilja_germany #hyperlapse #timelapse #atomos
After a 16-hour cruise from Riga onboard @tallinksilja_germany , we arrived in Stockholm, Sweden, the second stop of our #minicruise . One of the cleanest capitals in the world and the most populous city in Scandinavia is home to 950 000 people and has a unique layout, stretching over 14 islands connected with 50 bridges. At glance, in typical Scandinavian fashion, the city environment is dominated by bicycles, relaxed, hip and stylish people, and a stunning blend of new and old architecture. The absolute highlight of the city is Gamla Stan, one of the largest and best-preserved medieval cores in the world, dating back to the 13th century. Unlike many similar places that lose authenticity under the weight of tourism, the Swedes have successfully managed to combine wonderful preservation work with stylish, but tasteful bars, restaurants, and shops, making Gamla Stan the most impressive old town I've ever visited and a definite must-see 🔥 #ad #tallinksilja_germany #msromantika === #hellofrom #stockholm #sweden #sverige #visitstockholm #visitsweden #moodygrams #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #bealpha #voyaged #beautifuldestinations #tlpicks #yourshotphotographer #mylpguide #tallinksilja
On the list of most cliché Instagram photos, burning sunsets come close second to white girls in beautiful places, pensively staring in the distance for no good reason. Fascination with those red clouds, just like with all things so rare and glorious, is so high that sky replacement tutorials are among the most popular photography tutorials out there. Every landscape photographer knows how many times they went hunting for that crazy sunset, only to end up frozen, empty handed, and with their relationship in jeopardy. In fact, in places like Hamburg, sunsets like this are so rare that I gave up on them. However, on this day in Riga, after what felt like an eternity, the photography gods decided to look my way, painting the entire sky red. It was one of those sunsets so crazy that I needed to tame it in edit by desaturating the sky because it would otherwise look unrealistic. As the 15-minute show reached its peak, I stopped shooting to enjoy the moment. I couldn't help but think how grateful I am for all the great opportunities and experiences photography has brought into my life. === #riga #latvia #enjoylatvia #visit_latvia #RigaStories #moodygrams #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #bealpha #voyaged #beautifuldestinations #tlpicks #yourshotphotographer #mylpguide #hellofrom #tallinksilja
Last month your favorite Croatian photographers traveled to several Baltic and Scandinavian cities onboard @tallinksilja_germany ships. Our two-week journey began in Riga, the capital of Latvia and home to 650 thousand people, out of which 38% Russians. Riga is famous for its impressive historic center, Vecriga, which is considered the finest collection of Art Noveau buildings in Europe. And indeed, it often felt like walking through a giant museum. As with most places of such beauty, though, my feeling was that much of the authentic local life has been lost and displaced by tourist-oriented services. The photo highlight award goes to the House of the Blackheads, built in 1334 as a guild of merchants and shipowners. After being destroyed in WWII bombings, the replica was built in 1999 based on original blueprints.

The mother of lookups. I've written plenty of words on this profile about my admiration and love for these buildings. This time, I'll just let you enjoy the series. All photos were taken with Samsung S10+.
[SOUND ON!] I’ve always liked this church. Simple, unassuming, and a bit neglected, it perfectly fits the description of our hometown. As I was shooting this hyperlapse sequence on an early Sunday morning, the last partygoers were making their way home. Young, drunk, and stupid. They looked like they were having a blast; something that I haven't felt in quite a while. Observing them, a slight feeling of envy rose from within. I looked down; the sequence had already been completed. "That will do it for today," I told to myself, looking forward to going back to bed. === Swipe for B&A 🔥 Stories for BTS 🚒
In case you wondered, the answer to the most frequent question we get on Instagram is - we edit all our photos in Lightroom with occasional trips to Photoshop.

Also, Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan is currently 16% off so go check it out if you haven't already. [Link in bio] #sponsored
We spent ten days in Zagreb, Croatia, working on our biggest and most ambitious hyperlapse project so far. With over 300 GB of footage, we are looking at around a month of editing ahead of us 🔥 In the meantime, we'll be sharing some impressions of the Croatian capital, which exceeded our expectations and is well worth a visit. Pictured here is the iconic St. Mark's Church. Swipe left for the daytime drama. Which one do you like better? (The photos were taken on two different days; the first one during a cozy lightning session and right before a little less cozy pour, and the second one on a too warm late afternoon )
I don't remember much about Bremen except that it was wet, empty and beautiful. Don't know what it is, but Germany has a thing with pretty, boring towns. Fair deal, if you ask me. If you want to see every cobblestone street in Bremen, check out our friend @drkappaphoto . He might not be as good in adding stars, but he knows his angles.
[SOUND ON!] A hyperlapse stroll through the brick paradise. Hamburg is being seriously slept on. Swipe left to learn how we created this video, we'd love to hear your feedback.
[SOUND ON!] Whenever I question how wise it was to buy a motorized slider instead of getting a gastric balloon, I play this clip and everything falls back into equillibrium.
Long time no see, hope you're doing well. We just arrived home to Croatia for a much-needed vacation, and boy, it is so warm here that even my mother didn't complain about electricity prices when I turned on the air conditioning. On another note, for the last two months, we had the chance to test the camera of the new Samsung Galaxy S10+ and were left impressed, to say the least. Between three lenses, crazy optical image stabilization, and full control in Pro mode, there is not much left to be desired. Here are some daytime long exposures taken in Pro mode, using a 10-stop ND filter. Which one is your favorite? Thanks to @samsungmobile_de for letting us test the devices. #notsponsored
[SOUND ON!] A glimpse of our @jackdaniels_de experience at this year's Rock im Park Festival. What I love about festivals is that collective carefree mindset, where everyone is open for new people and experiences. Add the sun and some of our favorite childhood rock bands, and we got ourselves a recipe for a fun weekend. Btw, we are just finishing the festival aftermovie and will post it to IGTV any day now. The next stop is Hurricane Festival where we will dance with Foo Fighters and contemplate life with The Streets. Thanks to our friends in @jackdaniels_de for making this possible. #EyesofJack #sponsored #jackdaniels #oldno7 #rip2019
[SOUND ON!] We are happy to announce our new collaboration with @jackdaniels_de for yet another festival season. Music has always been an important part of Jack's story and this year we will follow it along as the #EyesofJack . First stop is @RockimParkOfficial , where we will shoot diligently, live freely, drink responsibly, and finally get to see one of our all-time favorite bands - Tool. We will be posting our impressions in Stories and over at @jackdaniels_de . Also, if you are at the festival and want to get your photo taken by us, stay tuned 🔥 #sponsored #jackdaniels #oldno7 #RiP2019 P.S. Guess the guitar melody playing in the 5th clip and win a free neck massage by the brother of your choice.
The first rays of light slip through the cracks, as the town of Rovinj enters 2017. I came back to this street many times after, searching for the same magical light, but nothing even came close. This is one of my all-time favourite photos (taken with a phone ) and a perennial reminder why it's worth it to wake up before dawn. Speaking of natural light, our friends from @voyaged are holding a photo contest with the theme of sunrise & sunset, and we are honored to be one of the judges. Tag your photos with #voyagedSS for a chance to get featured on their account.
Throwback to my first Gdansk trip back in 2017. I spent a week there freezing my ass off, didn't really meet anyone, but still managed to fall in love with this beautiful place. Polish people are some of the best out there, expect for that idiot who threw a brick at me in Warsaw. He can go die.
A 136-photo sequence, 15 minutes of shooting, 10 hours of editing (with no brotherly arguments this time ), and one €780 million concert hall — all united for this short little loop. Although at times I find it hard to accept that I have to put in a whole day of work for a 10-second loop, knowing the challenge behind it and seeing the end result is what makes hyperlapses by far my favorite type of content to create.
