Escape to Argentina - A Timelapse Adventure

Written by  Justin Majeczky

If you are considering travel to Argentina, Justin Majeczky will take you on a sneak peak of part of the country in less than 3 minutes.  Beautiful scenes of nature, including perfectly exposed starry skies, capture the essence of what a trip to Argentina can mean to you.  We enjoyed how the videographer started with the airport scene and moved to the countryside, providing various scenes of mountains in Argentina that are the second largest in the world, only smaller than the Himalayans.  We especially appreciated the use of advanced timelapse gear to capture many of the scenes.

Argentina is a larger country than many may realize.  Similar to many countries with mountain ranges and significant latitude distances, it has a range of climates and microclimates from polar to tropical.  This is also the country that many launch their journey to Antarctica. For more information on Argentina you can check out a list of articles on the Wandering Trader travel blogging website.

Below are some notes from the photographer.  We use similar equipment with some of our timelapse videos.

Three weeks of my life spent in another country...
Argentina is a country that stole my heart. We spent about 25 days in the country on two separate trips exploring and shooting an outdoor television show for Mojo outdoors. While on location I had the honor to document some of the most insane light and beautiful landscapes I have ever witnessed. Even though I was there to field produce and shoot a tv show, I still found time to shoot high resolution timelapse footage of the country. I left most of my motion control gear at home to make room for the video cameras but also so I could hone in my composition skills. It's far too often that timelapsers get lazy and just set up a typical dolly or pan shot. I wanted to break that mold and produce a film that was still impressive even in the absence of motion control gear. The key would be great compositional work and excellent light. I'd love to go back to shoot just scenic footage as I believe I barely scraped the surface of this amazing country.

I did take my eMotimo TB3 black with me which was useful in a few key situations. I love the portability of the TB3. It's so simple and easy to just throw in my backpack and take anywhere I want. Check them out

This video could not have been possible without the support from my friends at Norman Camera. They are seriously one of the best shops to buy photographic gear from locally and on the web. Check their site out here:

Special thanks to my friend James Everingham for the amazing track. You can find more of his work at

All production and shooting was done by Justin Majeczky. If you'd like to hire me or license any of this footage you can get ahold of me over at or email me This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
