Documenting Picturesque Hong Kong Through Video and Stills

Feeling holiday or travel blues? Looking for some wanderlust motivation for your next adventure? Check out this inspirational video!

I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I am longing for a travel adventure, that has been many months over due, I like to immerse myself in places all across the world through a simple click of a button. Obviously, it is never quite the same to experience a journey through the eyes of someone else, however, having said that, it can lead to some serious case of wanderlust, which may or may not lead to you reaching for your credit card and booking that last minute flight to a destination on the other side of the world. 

This time, wherever you are right now, you can enjoy the picturesque Hong Kong through the eyes of travel photographers John Alexander and Matthew Williams-Ellis who collaborate together on Photo Escapes Films to bring you on a visual journey  to destinations all over the world. Armed with Nikon D750, Nikon D850, and DJI Mavic Pro drone the two of them filmed and photographed breathtaking views. From panoramic cityscapes, to vibrant views across the harbor, and all the way to the atmospheric Man Mo Temple, Alexander and Williams-Ellis are taking the viewer with them, and explain their thoughts behind the shooting process.

With two different personalities, and consequently, two different styles of shooting, both photographers show us their unique vision and shots that catch their eye. Whether you want to learn more about travel stills or video, or you simply want to enjoy a visual treat for your eyes, there’s something for everyone. And, if Hong Kong isn’t your scene, their YouTube channel offers a large variety of destinations for you to pick! Question is, where will you choose to go?
