Long-term projects

Our long-term time-lapse projects are continually, and remotely monitored and managed. Using our machine-to-machine 3G and 4G communication. This remote monitoring and control guarantees our projects and their quality. We control EVERY setting on our professional DSLR cameras, which are at the centre of all our systems. The lengthiest of our projects is currently 15 years, but we are able to capture projects of any duration. From construction and demolition to internal fit-outs and installations, we produce high-quality time-lapse photography.

Mixed capture

Time-lapse is great, but often more is needed. We have a track record in many other forms of media production (please see our sister website www.hideawaymedia.com) and often mix the capture of time-lapse with a range of other content. These techniques include film/ video and drones, and a range of supporting equipment and expertise, allowing us to enhance time-lapse edits and produce the best results possible.

Short-term projects

Our short-term projects can be managed in a variety of ways, depending on the client’s requests. At Time-lapse systems, we used the best cameras and supporting equipment to capture projects. We capture photography from multiple positions and use a range of techniques for quality results every time. Depending on requirements and the environment, we can use a camera in situ, or use remote capabilities. Alternatively, we use a combination of both.

Some of the many uses our time-lapse systems are put to:

Workflow & process modelling

Our extended edits provide an in-depth, and detailed view of any project. Many clients specify these extended edits which display every element of the various process and stages. Using this for analysis, review, improvement, training, and more.


The quality of our time-lapse photography means that edits can be used for marketing purposes. Our management approach always ensures a project is captured in the best possible way. We can provide ongoing periodic edits, as well as full edits when the project is finished.

Archival project documentation

We provide edits, which are assembled in various ways. However, we often provide clients with full-time and date-stamped Ultra High Definition image archives. These image archives can be used for posterity, reference, dispute resolution, and more.

Internal & external communications

Our Interactive Remote Imaging System (iRis) online platform allows for information and sharing capabilities. Visit site monitoring to see the many benefits.
