About Digital Nectar:
Leigh Hilbert launched Digital Nectar Videography in early 2016 as a Canadian west coast extension of his well-established Leigh Hilbert Photography. He continues to build upon the core components and crew of this venture.
Every Digital Nectar production is unique, with Leigh working collaboratively on a per project basis with various talented filmmakers, videographers, artistic directors, editors, and field assistants. He is also quite capable of going it alone as displayed in his phenomenal molten lava movies.
Digital Nectar Videography is based on the Gulf Islands, British Columbia. We have some very exciting concepts in the works for 2016-2017!

A surreal three and a half minute slice of altered reality,
a journey to the place between the forces that create all things,
a dreamscape of the natural world, and sometimes ours …

Meet Leigh Hilbert
The creator of Digital Nectar Videography, Leigh has been involved with video and photography for over half a century. In this photo, he is on a shoot displaying our unique camera gimbal stabilizing system as he shows the crew a hands-free manoeuvre. All the camera equipment’s weight is entirely supported by his invention of a backpack sporting two strong flexible poles; allowing for much easier filming.
This unit is a very cool custom modified three-axis gimbal camera stabilizing system; great for super-smooth action shooting!
To get to unique filming areas, Leigh is known for hiking many miles in rough terrain carrying his photography equipment in a backpack and also over over his shoulder when he is on site . ~ Photograph by Ron Boyle
Prior to Digital Nectar Videography, Leigh’s camera lens focused on the wilderness and wildlife of the Canadian west coast, and on documenting the Big Island of Hawaii, principally the molten lava erupting from Kilauea Volcano. An acclaimed molten lava photographer and videographer, he has one of the largest collections of active volcano lava clips in the world. We often host some of his lava films on this site, but the bulk of his stunning work can be found here.
While living on the Big Island of Hawaii Leigh wrote a world-renowned blog, Hawaiian Lava Daily. Thousands of people read his steady stream of first-hand molten lava action reports, and witnessed the ever-changing lava flows through his award-winning photography and video. Leigh has retired Hawaiian Lava Daily but the site is still running and contains many impressive lava chronicles and images; well worth a visit!
Throughout his career, Leigh has made vast contributions to all forms of print and film media. In the lava genre alone, he is well-recognized for global contributions to a plethora of news stories, magazines, books, and movies. As he launches into Digital Nectar Videography his passion and creativity seem to grow stronger and brighter!
