A photo of the Moon taken from my iPhone

I took the photograph below by lining up my iPhone to the eyepiece of a telescope. It was slightly tricky to get lined up but I think the end result was pretty great:

Pretty cool huh?

I’m still amazed at the fact I can take a pretty decent picture of something which is, you know, in space! Using nothing more than my phone and a telescope. (The telescope isn’t even a specialist bit of kit for ‘stargazing’, it’s just a pretty normal scope!)

The original image was pretty huge so I reduced it down a bit for my site but it’s still pretty nice.

UPDATE I took another image later on when the sun had set:

Rewilding the planet with freelance animation and motion design

We've only got one planet, and right now it needs all the help it can get. Climate change and biodiversity loss are massive challenges that we need to tackle head on.

That's why, for every freelance animation project over £1000 a donation of 1% of the total budget will be made to the World Land Trust, on your behalf.

The money will go towards WLT's "buy an acre" programme; buying up and protecting vital habitats around the world, and helping fight against climate change.

Any motion design projects under £1000 will have a tree planted on your behalf.

Acres saved so far:

Thanks to my wonderful clients and the animations we've produced, enough money has been donated to save around:

17.5 Acres of vital habitats around the world.

Just think, your animated explainer video or logo animation could also be helping fight the climate crisis!
