Erik travelled to Belvedere Palace, Vienna to capture an experience around the newest Crystal Cruises adventure, down the Danube River.

The series intends to depict how you FEEL arriving at the Belvedere Palace on one of the riverboats. It establishes an association with a feeling rather than a literal narrative.

“As we flew into Vienna, we knew it would be a dreary affair. The forecast had low cloud cover, fog and rain during the time we were there.
The Fog of the Danube River and the cold late winter weather was not going anywhere.
As a location photographer weather is always on my mind. We spend a lot of time planning our productions around weather patterns to make sure we can create the images we want without getting us and the client stuck on location.”

However, the team rolled with the poor weather and pitched en route shooting very early morning and late evening. This enabled the interior and artificial lights to light up the Palace, making the best of the bad weather.

This assignment was captured in 3 parts; The landscapes in Europe; people in Los Angeles; With the third layer created using CGI.

“The studio part was, in this case, a bit of a dance. Big dresses and a lot of movement where I’m observing, letting the talent be a part of the story and narrative rather than over-directing.
They move, I observe and capture.”

Peter shows us his talents are not limited to just the studio by taking motion cameras, installed in drones and flying them over Champagne Jean Josselin’s rolling hills. The final advert as you can see is exquisite.

However bleak it may seem in London with the turbulent weather, remember it’s even worse elsewhere.
