Nathan Kaso of Melbourne has been an avid landscape photographer for a few years now, traveling around and exploring Australia and New Zealand to photograph their vast and proud landscapes. Often, he would capture them in a natural (never overproduced) glorious way, sometimes surrounded in early morning fog, sometimes basking in the golden rays of the sun, enticing those who look at his photos to come and discover those lands for themselves.

As amazing as his images are, however, Nathan hasn’t always been a photographer. He planted his roots in the art of capturing light working in video production in Melbourne. Taking advantage of this background, he has been making remarkable timelapse videos using his trusty Canon EOS 5D Mark II for about a year now. His short tilt-shift video, Miniature Melbourne, even won the APA Short Video Contest award for Best Timelapse in 2013.

Most recently, he released a new video entitled “The Waters of Greenstone”. He shot the video for over three weeks on the South Island of New Zealand, again with the help of his Canon EOS 5D Mark II.  Complete with video segments, timelapse sequences, and aerial footages, the video leisurely strides though some of New Zealand’s most majestic landscapes and their ever-changing, transitory elements.

From Arthur’s Pass in the center to the Catlins in the South, “The Waters of Greenstone” explores the majesty and lushness of this subcontinent down under. See the video after the jump.
