Can you believe it was this time last week when we were all getting ready to take photographs of our world at 4am?! Time sure does fly by!
What was fantastic this year was that even more photographers wanted to get together and meet up with other people in their areas and take part in a 4am photo walk! I did my best to try and help orchestrate that and put people in touch with eachother, but I’m hoping to have a dedicated page put on the website so people can add their towns/cities and add their names, which I think will really help everyone to get in touch with eachother for next time.
I am going to blog about those walks, and first up is the 4am photo walk that I organised in my home city of Birmingham, UK.
Birmingham is actually one of the finalists for the UK’s City Of Culture 2013 along side Derry/Londonderry, Norwich and Sheffield. Thanks go out to Birmingham City Of Culture bid team for helping to organise the opening of Birmingham’s Museum and Art Gallery.
It was quite a chilly morning but 23 hardly photographers turned up in time for 4am armed with their cameras and tripods.
The first (and third) videos were made by the City Of Culture team & it was a video that went out to announce the ‘Night At The Museum’ The 2nd video is one I made and I asked participants how they had heard about the 4am Project and if they enjoyed themselves!
Sit back, relax and take a few minutes to watch all the beautiful images of 4am in Birmingham.
Thank you to everyone who supported the project and came out to take part in the Birmingham event!
