Untitled, Hastings / Tim George, 2013
I’m very pleased to announce that my photography portfolio now has its own dedicated website.
I’ve been using Flickr for the past few years, but recently I’ve been taking my photography practice much more seriously and, as such, I thought it was about time my images were on display somewhere a bit more bespoke.
You can visit now at: photo.tim-george.co.uk
Thanks for looking!
Also, a quick note to say this is the first site I’ve built on the Cargo platform, and I found the whole experience absolutely fantastic. Over the last few years I’ve experimented with a lot of the new hosting sites – Squarespace, Koken, etc – and Cargo really blew me away with its simple design, flexibility, and ease of use. Top marks!

Brighton / Tim George, 2013
New photography up on my Flickr page – taken during a traditional English bank holiday seaside trip. I always find places like Brighton a really interesting challenge to photograph. It’s so difficult to bring a new dimension to the place – the same clichéd shots have been done over and over again.
I’m not saying I found anything radically different this time around, but the light was gorgeous and I’m pretty pleased with a few of my shots. Certainly captures the feel of the place anyway.

Oh, also, I’m loving the new Flickr since it was re-designed. A massive improvement from the old style, it feels really fresh and clean now, as well as being a whole lot simpler.
Motorbikes — new series / Tim George, 2013
I’m very pleased to announce a new series of prints, available now. Last year I produced a poster of 9 motorbikes that my dad owned during the 70s & 80s. I have now taken them a step further and produced an alternate series, abstracting the forms, graphics & colours.
Both the originals and the 6 brand new psychedelic versions are available to buy at Print–Process. The giclée prints are available as either A1 or A2 size, and printed on 230gsm ultra-smooth fine art matt paper.
I’m massively grateful to Blam for agreeing to stock my art on his insanely cool site! Check out the full gallery for loads of original prints by the likes of Spin, James Joyce, Oliver Jeffers, Peter Crawley, Build, Maddison Graphic, Emily Forgot… the list goes on and on! I’m honoured to sit alongside them.
So what are you waiting for? Buy my prints now at Print–Process!
Acton Depot / 2013
Some new shots are now up on my Flickr – taken during a tour of the London Transport Museum Depot in Acton, West London.
If you’re in any way interested in graphic design, typography, and/or trains, I would suggest you get down there as soon as you can. It’s an absolute treasure trove of beautiful items from the network’s rich 150-year history.
Unfortunately, being a depot, there’s very little natural light, so please excuse the grainy, artificial tone of the shots. I’m sure you’ll agree, the content more than makes up for it.
30 years of the Space Shuttle / Tim George, 2013
To coincide with the launch of my new site, I have a new print for sale! Again, I’ve been working on this one for a long time… ever since the Shuttle was retired in July 2011, in fact.
Anyway, better late than never. I’m really pleased with the print – it’s been exquisitely screenprinted by K2 screen, in 3 colours (white, grey, orange) on dark grey stock from GF Smith.
It’s a limited edition of 30, available to buy now for £30 each. Go get one!
I’m very pleased to announce that my long-overdue portfolio refresh is now live! I’ve been working on this for what feels like ages now – and finally the crappy holding page is no more; a fully-functioning portfolio sits in its place.
Go check it out at tim-george.co.uk and let me know what you think!
Aldwych station / photographs, 2012
New photography on my Flickr page – exploring the now disused Aldwych tube station (more info here)
Celebrating the Shuttle — coming soon
It’s been a looong time since I originally posted about a self-initiated project to celebrate the conclusion of NASA’s space shuttle program.
Originally I hoped to release a print to coincide with the final mission, but that came and went in July 2011 and I never got the piece to a stage I was happy with.
Anyway, watch this space, because I am pleased to announce that in early 2013 the project will be unveiled. Better late than never!
