Time-lapse Photography

Indefinitely, our time-lapse systems are fully self-sustaining, connected to a solar panel or 240V mains power, and can capture a project or event over weeks, months and even years.

Yes, we provide you a secure login to an on-line gallery where you can view and download images for progress reporting and social sharing.

Yes, we can capture images at night providing there is adequate light. Transitioning from day to night is also seamless with the camera settings we use. You can view some examples of this from our time-lapse gallery or contact us to find out more.

You will be able to view images via an on-line gallery as they are taken. We manage the entire operation of the time-lapse camera system . We receive regular status updates, via the phone network, of image capture, battery voltage, storage capacity, unit temperature etc. to ensure the system is running correctly and photos are being taken. In additional, the system will send us alerts via email and SMS if anything isn't working as it should so we can act promptly to rectify any issues. We are also able to communicate remotely with the system to make any configuration adjustments as required.

Firstly, images are stored locally to an onboard SD card or SSD device. In addition, images are instantly uploaded to an on-line gallery, stored in the cloud as well as on an external hard drive. Due to network congestion or other factors, occasionally an image may not get uploaded when it is taken, however during the end of day upload sequence the system scans the SD card for any photos that haven't been uploaded during the day and uploads them.

Our time-lapse systems run off solar or 240V mains power. If its an outdoor project or event, a solar panel will be used to keep the internal battery topped up and is included in the price of the system (unless 24hr image capture, at low interval rates is required where alternative power options may need to be considered). If we are setting up indoors then we will require access to a 240v power outlet within close proximity to the camera unit or within a distance that can be reached by a standard length power cord.

We work with you to determine the best location for the camera unit to achieve the best outcomes. This includes determining what existing mounting infrastructure is suitable or what might be required, whether it be utilising existing facilities (buildings, balconies, poles etc.) or if we need to bring a pole or scaffold tower in etc. There is a solution to suit most applications.

We use Nikon and Cannon DSLR cameras capturing hi-res images up to 24MP. Wide angle lenses are also used for maximum field of view. This provides us a lot of scope to produce media in 1080HD or 4K as well as create engaging videos with dynamic movement. And to ensure the final product is engaging and of the highest quality our video production services include screening of all photos, with non productive days culled, and a process of footage stabilisation and de-flickering is carried out to achieve an optimum viewing experience.

The following fees cover most engagements:

  1. Initial fee for equipment installation and set up of on-line gallery.
  2. Camera hire/service fee, invoiced monthly.
  3. Post production editing fee for creation of time-lapse video on completion.

Additional works at the clients request during the course of the project will be charged accordingly.
