Lord Howe Island – The Movie



Stephan Kleinlein


May 2015 I visited my friend Dave Gardiner on Lord Howe Island. A 2 hours flight from Sydney until this amazing island appeared in the middle of the ocean. I didn’t really know what to expect, but here my little film about one of the last paradise islands on earth. Enjoy the slideshow-movie with this great intro song “Incarnation” by Le Castle Vania to build up the suspension and the beautiful main song “ Mystic Sunset” by DJ Marky & S.P.Y. with images I took in those 3 weeks on the island.

Thanks guys for your support and thanks Dave & Glenys Gardiner on Lord Howe Island to make Michel and myself feel welcome at your place.

I will be back for sure!!! ; ))

Special Thanks to Head Sherpa: Michel Blinkhorn ; ))

Last paradise on earth

Lord Howe Island

Just finished my last photo editing session of the Lord Howe Island trip May 2015. We just had such an awesome time over there, shooting over 10000 images in 3 weeks. A “Huge Thank You” to my good friend Dave Gardiner who showed us, Michel Blinkhorn and myself almost every little corner and every hidden beach on the island. This is the most incredible island I have seen, and I have seen a few. If you ever have a chance to go there, contact Dave and he will be your guide to show you how to enjoy and see this special place from a different angle. I will be back for sure! Thanks Dave & Glenys – The Greenbacks

“Boys On The Run” Indo-2014 Movie

“Boys On The Run” Indo-2014 Movie

Well this video is for the boys: Craig, Grant, Dave, Simon and Pete.

We all and myself did an awesome surf trip to Telo Islands last year and this movie is pretty much, in 28 minutes what happened over there.

So if you feel like some beautiful pictures, a bit of a video story and some awesome music, than just sit down and enjoy our trip. It was a real adventure.

For me it was 4 plane rides, several car and mini bus drives and 2 boat trips to get there from Byron Bay Australia (4 days), but it was worth it and would do it again anytime!!!

Waterman Survival Course with Joe Knight

Waterman Survival Course with Joe Knight

I just finished the Waterman course with “One Ocean International’s” Joe Knight. It was an awesome course and I learned so much, thanks to Joe and his Team.

Being in the water my whole life as a Surfer, Kitesurfer, Windsurfer, SUPer, Freediver and mainly as an Ocean Photographer I experienced some tricky situations in bigger surf in the past. Thinking being bullet-proof and finding out I’m not, this course is exactly made for people like me.

The program gives especially surfers and surf photographers a deep inside knowledge about breathing technics and training methods how to survive the next nasty sets of waves much easier.

Breathing technics under high pressure, meditation, rescue, deep dives, stretching, simulating big wipe outs, efficient duck-diving were just some highlights of the 3 day course. Also a lot of knowledge behind the whole human psychology in regards of breathing we took home for our future water time.

I loved Joe’s course and I can only recommend to do a course with him and his team at one stage if you are serious about your waterman activities.
