Who goes there …… at 4am?

What better way to follow up with the 4am Project’s fabulous news, than by featuring just a few of the fabulous 4am photographers who have taken part in the project during the last year!

Some may call us crazy, but I prefer to think that we are adventurous! ;)

What is 4am like for you?

Will you take a self portrait?

Perhaps it’s a time to be reflective. The quietness of 4am lends itself nicely to that.

What’s your view of the world at 4am?

This next 4am event will mark  the 4am Project’s 1st birthday! Here’s how it all started……. 

My name’s Karen Strunks, and my curiosity about 4am began in 2008 

I live in Birmingham – the UK’s second largest city – and after a night out, I was driving from one side of the city to the other. It was around 4am and I was really struck by the cityscape. Streets and roads normally teeming with people and traffic were deserted. The city was asleep and it felt like I had it all to myself. I liked it. 

In 2008, I went out to take my first pictures at 4am in Birmingham. I’ve made some of them available on my blog. I’ve been asking readers of my blog for their suggestions of places they’d like to see at 4am. They decide where to go, and I take the photos, so it’s become a collaboration. 

When I started to think about how the idea could be extended, the 4amproject was born. 

I’d like to involve you in this project. What will YOU be doing at 4am on 4th April 2010? 

Put the date in your diary, set your alarm, and take a picture of your world at 4am. 

I’m going to get some friends together and go out and have a 4am party. Why not do the same? Get some of your friends and family involved too. Or simply set the alarm, take a picture, and go back to the land of nod. 

Whatever you’re doing, it’d be great if you could get involved and play a part in building up a big picture of the world at 4am. 

Crabs On Ice – 4am Project, 21 June 2009

Crabs On Ice by Bruce Kerridge, Sydney, Australia


In the last year over 2,000 photographs have been taken by 4am project photographers from over 20 countries! People have blogged about their 4am experience, newspapers and magazines have written about it, there has even been radio and tv coverage


Anyone can take part, all you need is a camera, whether that be an dslr, a camera phone or anything in between! Just sign up for a free flickr account,  and tag your photos ’4amproject’. The  Get Involved page has a few more details which you may find helpful. 

This year I am opening the door to sponsorship, advertising, and will be trying to source some prizes for ’4am-ers’ so the project can grow and reach a wide audience, so if that’s something you are interested in, then please get in touch.

If you have any questions or suggestions, you will find the 4am project on twitter, or you can send me an email, and you can join the 4am Project group on Flickr too. I’d love to hear from you! 

There are a few little blips on the website at the moment, please bear with me whilst I get them fixed. 


Roll on the 4th April! :)

Violence In The Night

By Pedro Pinheiro, Lisboa, Portugal

If you would like to see more of Pedro’s photos, please visit his flickr photostream.
Pedro says:
“Strong waves crashing against the wall of the small oceanic pool at the Azenhas do Mar beach.”
It looks like Pedro and his camera got drenched about 2 seconds after this photo was taken! Pedro assured me that he and his camera remained dry.
