Michael Shainblum

A still from Michael Shainblum's 'Into the Atmosphere'.

San Diego based Michael Shainblum has always wanted to be an artist for as long as he can remember. Photography and film was never a concrete calling, but a desire to an artist existed nonetheless. Driven by his passion to create and project his own perspective worldwide, he now seeks to capture the extraordinary, the breathtaking and the unique.  Constantly striving to push the boundaries of what can be achieved in each medium, he aims to find beauty in an array of scenarios and angles, from gargantuan nature of the galaxy to simple observations. For Shainblum, the possibilities of film and photography are endless.

Despite the range of his work however, Coggles couldn’t help but become mesmerised by Shainblum’s Time-lapse photography in particular. ‘Into the Atmosphere’, Shainblum’s film featured below, is an exceptional example of the intense beauty of our planet and the cosmos at large. If you have minutes to spare today, you should spend them watching this – you can thank us later.
