NEW — photography portfolio

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!

Exploring the Post Office Railway

Wow. And I thought my visit to Aldwych abandoned station was impressive… these guys from Silent UK (an urban exploration blog) managed to access and explore the entirety of the ‘Mail Rail’ – an underground railway built beneath London to transport post from East to West, and abandoned since 2003.

Amazing pictures and words here.

Adrift

Adrift / Simon Christen, 2013

Adrift is a stunning time-lapse film of the San Francisco bay area, as mist & fog rolls in from the Marin Headlands. Shot by Simon Christen, an ex-Pixar animator turned photographer. Nice original score by The Album Leaf too.

New photography — Brighton

Brighton / Tim George, 2013

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.

New photography – TfL Acton Depot

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.

Ex-Sennep designer Tudor Prisăcariu has launched another of his epic photography projects – from 2011 when he walked the London Loop. This series shows a really interesting insight to London and its suburbs; there are scenes of great natural beauty juxtaposed with some really grim areas of urban decay. It all adds up to a fascinating and unusual portrayal of the city.
