Who are we?

Scenery Station is a video production company specializing in HD nature video. We bring the vastness of nature to you in breathtaking high definition. We were the first podcast in iTunes to provide pure, unadulterated footage of the natural world – way back in 2005! And now we are delighted to also be able to provide collections of our scenery for purchase on various media.

What type of nature video do you produce?

Our work is a virtual window into the natural world. We want our viewers to escape into peaceful landscapes and the awesome beauty of nature. So we keep it simple. We don’t have a host to get between you and the view, we don’t use narration to distract you from the sounds of the location and we don’t use music to alter your mood. We just bring you nature, raw and undiluted. In High Definition. Visit our Videos page to view some samples.

So, are all your videos locked-off ‘virtual windows’?

No. Our primary aim is to draw viewers out of their busy lives and into the great outdoors. So in addition to our locked-off virtual window scenes, you’ll also see very slow pans that give you a 180º or even a 360º view of a spectacular location. Sometimes we use a steadicam and shoot a walk through a forest or along a coastal track so it seems as if you the viewer are walking along the track with us. If we can film nature in a way that makes you feel like you’re in it when you watch it, we’ll do it.

Do you process your video scenery to enhance the colours and make it look better than it actually does?

No. What you see is what we saw. We try as hard as we can to replicate the feel of each location and sometimes that might mean we have to correct the video or the sound. But we never go beyond adjusting for the limitations of our equipment.

I'm not sure yet...can I see a sample?

Of course! For years now we have been producing a podcast in iTunes containing short 1 minute segments of our scenery. If you visit our Podcasts page you will find links to subscribe in iTunes to either the Apple TV optimized feed or the iPod/iPhone optimized feed. You will also find links to subscribe using your web browser or other favourite RSS reader.

What if I just want to look at a few of your scenes on the web?

All of our podcast episodes are also available for viewing on our Videos page.

What other types of video does Scenery Station produce?

In addition to our HD nature video core business, we produce other types of videos. Promos, events - we even film lectures and conventions. If you’d like us to work on your project or produce a video for you, please contact us.

I have other questions!

If we’ve left one of your burning questions unanswered, please drop us a line.




The Crew

Liza Poppert

Liza grew up in Sydney, Australia and remembers getting her first camera from her parents at about the age of 4. Most of the photos she took were of the sky, clouds and grass, though she was eventually persuaded that it might be worthwhile to photograph people as well! While pursuing her love of scenic photography, Liza obtained an Arts degree in Communications and Philosophy and worked as a camera assistant on television drama series, music videos and TV commercials. She has also delved into short filmmaking and had her work screened at the Hof International Film Festival in Germany, the Telluride IndieFest Film Festival in the USA, the Commonwealth Film Festival in England, as well as various Australian film festivals. Liza started up Scenery Station so that she could return to her first love – filming nature.
