3 DAY BUSHCRAFT TRIP AND WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY - bushcraft, campfire, shelter, cooking, no tent

Publicat pe 10 mar. 2019
I am off grid on a small peninsula near the West coast of Denmark on a 3 day bushcraft trip with my camera. Making a base camp in the woods from where I can hike to the surrounding nature is a great way of doing wildlife photography.
The camera gear itself is quite heavy itself so I decided not to bring a tent. I love wild camping and on the first night I simply slept underneath a big tree while the moon rose and I could fall to sleep to the sound of the camp fire and the ducks and geese nearby.
I hoped to get close to the deer in the area but I had no luck. A few short glimpse was all I got. I got close to a group of swans and I was lucky to get a few good photos of these beautiful birds.
For me this is the very best kind of nature photography. Being alone in nature for a period of time without high expectations - just spending some days and see what happens.

  • I'm working on a video about how I manage to power up all of my batteries on longer trips and expeditions using power banks and solar panels. Let me know if you have any questions you would like me to include in that video 👍

    • @Theodore Emery me

    • I want to know if you use solar panels or power bank to charge up your DSLR batteries. And also if it has any bad impact on the batteries.

    • try river eco flow

    • Morten Hilmer hi morten, do you also test wind generators? Seems to be more effective in the north.... cheers from switzerland

  • Proof that you can make a video about photography without running off at the lip non-stop.

  • leanr some skills from this video maybe can save my life in someday,thanks a lot

  • Ok no talking. Thumbs up

  • Awesome place and nature god bless you!🇧🇷♥️

  • I see that jumper in most of your videos. I want one!

    • @Morten Hilmer Recently discovered your videos my friend. They in turn are awesome. Love your work

    • It is awesome 👍

  • Why would you want to be anywhere else? That's a heck of an "office" you've got there! Beautifully edited, very tranquil video. I like the way, even after you got the shot, you were careful to avoid disturbing the swans as you retreated from the water. Those oysters! Imagine how much they would cost you in Paris! What were you cooking at the end if you don't mind me asking? Greetings from the far north of Scotland.

  • What a great video, no need for talking, off the grid, wonderful and peaceful, i wish i was a special forces ninja like you Morten :), i have just recently found your channel and i love your Photographer Friday videos.

  • Fantastic! Serenity! Thank you..

  • One day i"ll to do that like your trip video, feelin good and​​ silence

  • 23:50 Most of the people really don't care once they get the picture they want about how wildlife will feel, beautiful gesture to see you leaving quietly, not disturbing them

  • Equipment bag?

  • Too many people can't grasp the serenity and peace of a place such as that.

  • I’m gonna try doing my videos differently from now on here in New Zealand. I was able to work at my laptop with you video playing in the background. Thanks mate and that boot lacing…wow!

  • Antes de nada espero que comprendas el español porque si te tuviera que decir esto en inglés creo que hasta lo entenderías peor,solo me gustaría decirte que vengo de parte de "Un Poco De Todo" y que me encantaría dedicarme a la fotografía como tú,ya que ese tipo de viajes que haces se ven muy tranquilizadores pero a la vez solitarios bueno de igual manera me gustaría mucho hacer ese tipo de viajes que haces tú .

  • Adoro este video, su sonido es relajante. I love it...

  • Its amazes me how you can eat an oyster right off the sea without steaming it first. If you did that in my location you would most probably get sick. Great video btw!!

  • How to make this video

  • Hi i am from pakistan i liked it so much the way you did...i think everyone in this is sad he wants to live alone and away from gathring ...you closer to nature

  • Your episodes are killing me❤️❤️❤️New subscriber😍✌️

  • This is so lovely Morten. I'm also intending to have such trips. Absolutely amazing and inspirational.

  • Thanks very much for the video. Very aspiring! Mind if I ask how much weight your pack has? And how did you keep your foods from going bad? It looks the temperatures were not high but what if in warmer days? Thanks again.

  • So good Morten

  • You have some lovely pictures and super editing! Meditative, thanks!

  • Very good video. what is the brand your solar panel. Thankyou.

  • Hey Morten why are u not uploading any videos these days. I miss them a lot... 😞

  • Awesome as always. Simple, peaceful, delightful. Thank you for sharing your adventures with us. Cheers my friend!

  • Hi Just curious I heard Denmark doesn't really allow people to wild camp anywhere except in designated area? What is the policy here, can you camp anywhere you want like in Norway ? Is there a fine if the police catches you camping outside camping spots?

  • I liked your work also your camping style.

  • I love this video...! I'ld like be you in that place! Thanks for sharing

  • I am glad I was able to find this channel. I would like to get started on my wildlife photography inaddition to expanding my outdoor experience and knowledge. I do a lot of fine arts and a avid illustrator. (Sorry if my english sounds a little off) During my weekends I would like to draw but at the same time, I would like to know more about using the animal stalking technique injunction to my fine arts technique. I would like to learn more from you about loving outdoors no matter how worst the conditions are.

  • That was a beautiful video thank you so much

  • wow, i remember when you were first starting out and now you have over a 100k! Massive congrats. Just shows what hard work and quality brings. Keep going! Love from scotland!

  • I liked the video after seeing all the shots you set up to walk through the frame looking like you hadn't just set up the shot. I love that, it immerses the viewer more into the feeling that your time in the woods gave you. Keep up the great work!

  • I do not want you to be angry with my comment, it was only a reflection. I do not doubt about your management skills but this is a world in wich many people do not think ... Is it understood?

  • This is how big forest fires start. It is incredible that people put at risk the forest and environmental wealth by a simple recreational video

  • Loved the video Morten! Beautiful. Wish I'd come across your channel sooner. Hope you're well. Will

  • Oh, c'mon, it's not real, it's just a prop...

  • I really enjoy these videos because when people are out with their camera, there usually is no talking. Its a side of photography people dont see, Thank you Morten!

  • nice video👍
