Passing the time with time-lapse

Commissions are undertaken to create time-lapse photography, whether to show change over an hour, a day, a week, a month or year(s). The resulting images can be provided as images or composed as an animated movie in any video format from DVD quality through to HD and for display on online.

There are a few examples here, some done for fun and some for clients. Commissions undertaken at home and abroad, studio based or on location. There are many more available in our archive for purchase under licence, please ask us for any particular subjects.

Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. For example, an image of a scene may be captured once every second, then played back at 25 frames per second. The result is an apparent 25-times speed increase. Time-lapse photography can be considered the opposite of high speed photography or slow motion. [Wikipedia]
