Our work in North Tyneside General Hospital (Rake Lane)

In June 2020 we were contacted by North Tyneside General hospital (or Rake Lane if you’re local) to ask if we would like to supply local images for the refurbed cafe. YES OF COURSE was the answer. As this is my local hospital and I’ve spent more time than most in this place (I’m very accident prone and a type 1 diabetic) and always admired the work of local artists and photographers that adorns the walls in waiting rooms and corridors. It was a great privilege to be asked to join those names and have my work up in the hospital. There are 9 local images from Tynemouth to Newcastle about A2 in size and they look fantastic. Due to Covid 19 there is still a very limited number of visitors allowed to the hospital so I haven’t been able to get in and see them myself but here’s a few shots I was sent after they went up. There will be an official launch later in the year when things have settled down so I’ll update the post then.

Newcastle…A City in Lockdown

Grainger Street and Grey St in one photo

In March 2020 a worldwide pandemic named Covid 19 brought the world to a standstill. Governments were forced to put countries into lockdown to protect there citizens and the North Eastern City of Newcastle Upon Tyne was just one of them. Home to our gallery we which we were forced to close, the city streets fell silent, next to nobody was outside and traffic was minimal. On occasion I needed to visit my gallery in order to get things that enabled me to continue working from home. It is was on these occasions that I took a little wonder only a few hundred metres from the gallery to shoot some of these amazing images. As a photographer it is very rare to get these kind of shots, sure you can wonder the streets at 4a.m. in the summer months and not see a sole but the cars would still be parked on the side of the road.

The Heart Series

Now in it’s 8th Year the latest addition to the Heart Series is release February 1st. What started as a one off from Dunstanburgh has become a yearly Valentines Day Challenge. Each of these images as a naturally formed heart shape within it at an iconic North East location. These natural shapes are becoming a little harder to find these days and this years addition ‘Heart of an Angel’ makes use of the local foliage to provide the symbol of love.

If you’ve spent time with a loved one or have fond memories of any of these locations the Heart series could be the perfect gift for you.

Lines Behind Collaboration

Time Freezer Stacked Image Ad By Lines

Here at Time Freezer Photography we absolutely love the work of our friend James @LinesBehind his cards are hilarious, bright and bubbly but the Stacked images he produced of our local area are on point. So we thought we’ would ask him to create one for us, showing all the areas of the North East we photograph centered around our base here at No. 13 STACK Newcastle. The advert was created for Newcastle Kingfisher Guidebooks which adorn the bedrooms of all the top hotels in the city. To see more of James work head on down to the gallery.
