Helsinki / 2014

News: I’ve just uploaded some brand new photography from a recent trip to the Finnish capital. Most of the shots I took were of store fronts and signage. There’s a hell of a lot of neon in the city; a friend of mine joked that it’s there because it gets so dark in the winter, so they need it to find their way around! Maybe there’s some truth in that. Anyway, there’s a lot of really beautiful old signs, amongst many other cool things to check out. Worth a visit!

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!

New photography — Brighton

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

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.
