What is the 4am Project?

The 4am Project is a ground-breaking global photography project that aims to encourage worldwide social collaboration to capture a view of the world at the often unseen time of 4am.

Since it’s launch in April 2009, the project has attracted participants from nearly 50 countries, and there is a digital archive of over 7000 images and is one of the biggest world-wide photography collaborations.

Take a browse of some of the amazing images that 4am Project photographers have captured so far!

Why not flex your photography muscles with other photographers around the world at 4am (in your local time) on Sunday 14th April?

It’s a thought provoking project that inspires and challenges! Experience an often unseen time of the day and be part of a world wide community collaboration!

4am Project event – November 2012

For this latest 4am Project event I teamed up with the Lakeside Arts which is part of Nottingham University who are holding an exhibition,  Saturday Night Sunday Morning. Well, that’s just the right time for 4am photographers, so I put a call out to all the 4am Project peeps and asked them to get up and get involved!

The UK weather wasn’t being very photography friendly come the time. In fact, I wondered if anyone would venture outside at all!

I made this little video as the Nottingham 4am walk approached.

I needn’t have worried after all as about 40 4am Photographers showed up for the event! Wow!!

Of course it wasn’t just Nottingham photographers who ventured away from the cozy confines of their beds, photographers from all over the world took part; Italy, El Salvador, Belgium, Portugal, UK, USA, and Venezuela to name a few!

Some photographers ventured out on solo expeditions, and some gathered together for photo walks.

Sit back, relax and take a 4am tour of all the wonderful photographs that were taken at this event!

Thank you to all the photographers who took part!

4am Project photo walks – Birmingham UK

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! :)
