TimeLine Events, where Heritage and Photography come together and recreate scenes from a past era.
Whether you are an enthusiast of a particular theme, someone that enjoys the past and has a love of photography or simply a photographer that likes the idea of joining a group of like-minded people for an enjoyable day out photographing things in an environment that may otherwise not be possible, either way you will find plenty to enjoy at one of our events.
Open to photographers of all levels and style our events are geared to giving you a day out that will be remembered for years to come. Our aim is too as close as possible recreate scenes from a bygone era, focusing on British transport and industrial heritage dating back to the Victorian’s. Within the portfolio of regular events you will find a mix of railways, boats, planes, buses and other road vehicles, all set in environments that will make people look twice at your images. It is our passion and mission that drives us to ensure the past is recreated as authentically as possible, working with many of the UK’s top museums, heritage hangers, preserved railways and private owner collections. Adding to this we also work closely with many of the UK’s finest re-enactors and re-enactment groups to ensure the human interest is apparent in many of the recreations we set.
Our events are professionally managed to ensure all participants are given equal opportunities to capture the cameos that are presented with time to make sure you get the best from the session. Equally we take safety very seriously on all of our events with you as the photographer in mind at all times, emailing a safety and procedures leaflet to all participants before any event helps ensure it is in the minds of everyone involved, thus helping to ensure we all have a safe and enjoyable day.
