A few days ago I picked up the news on twitter that 4am photographer, Andy Toots, has had his latest 4am photograph featured on The Guardian’s website! Congratulations Andy!
Andy says, “I wanted to go out around my village and take some photos, but didn’t plan very well and only got so far as the end of my driveway, where I took this self-portrait”. And what a striking self portrait it is!
Have your 4am Project photos been featured by any publications? Get in touch, and let me know!

I’m excited to announce the event for the 4am Project – Set your alarm clock for 4am on 17th October!
Start telling your friends and spreading the word. Get together with other ’4am-ers’ in your town and see what you can capture whilst the rest of the world sleeps.
Since the 4am Project began 18 months ago hundreds of photographers from nearly 40 countries have experienced their world at this often unseen time of day. The global solidarity of the project shows a different view of the world we live in.
Although the blog has been quiet, I haven’t been resting my laurels. I’ve been working hard behind the scenes to enable the project to continue to grow. Thanks to the support and funding from Channel 4 and Screen West Midlands I have been able to take the project forward and have lots of plans to make it sustainable.
I am taking the 4am Project to New York City for this next event and will be organising something fantastic for people to take part in, so watch this space if you are in the area!
So, get ready! Get set! Polish off your lenses and re-charge your batteries!
