A hyperlapse is a timelapse, let’s be honest here! The only difference is that your camera will be moving in space around your subject, changing its perspective! Depending on how far you decide to move your camera, you can sometimes create a brand new angle that wouldn’t be possible without shooting several static timelapses.

Your subject is changing through space and time!

A hyperlapse is not a motion control timelapse. You are not using any extra gear to capture it, a camera and a tripod is enough. Hyperlapse videos are also usually shot on very long distances that a slider can not replicate. Watch some of our favorite hyperlapse videos below! 


Timelapse photography is an art that is best learned with experience and passion. At this workshop, you will be able to develop your skills and learn the craft with two professionals in the best city in the world.

At a ratio of 1 teacher for maximum 2 students, this is the best investment you can make in your timelapse career, even if it’s just a hobby! Brian and Emeric know the best timelapse spots around New York City! You will learn how to handle any situation, composition and subject to create the highest quality hyperlapse video possible.
