There is something truly majestic and somewhat eerie about the Matterhorn. After a short 3-day visit to Zermatt, Switzerland, I saw the fascination behind this mountain and began to understand why so many people have risked their lives climbing it. The Matterhorn is captivating and it’s hard to take your eyes off it (and my camera).
We visited during the 150th anniversary of the first ascent. In the video you will see lights up the side of mountain in the night time-lapses. This is the route the first explorers took to reach the summit.
This video was shot and edited by Tyler Fairbank. I will be releasing many videos from all over the world in the next few months so make sure to follow me! Next release will be on Thailand.
In the 3 days I totaled 9,323 stills. Time and hyper-lapses were all shot on the Canon 5D Mark III and Sony A7s in raw, graded in Lightroom with LightroomTL, and further stabilized, motion tracked, and whatever else was needed in After Effects CC. Final edit was cut in Premiere Pro.
