Austin, TX, USA -- Selected works from the HOPE Outdoor Gallery presented using hyperlapse and motion timelapse photographic techniques. All works were painted and filmed in the summer and fall of 2013 using only manual camera movements (i.e. no motion control hardware, sliders, or dollies).

The HOPE Outdoor Gallery has truly become a unique treasure of the Austin art scene. What was once an ill fated attempt at building luxury condominiums has been transformed into a playground for serious artists and irreverent taggers alike. The view of downtown Austin from atop Castle Hill (informal name for the HOPE OG) is picturesque, second to no other ground level location in town.
Since the end of Summer 2013 I've visited the HOPE OG every weekend I was able. Over these past few months I've met a lot of great people with strong passions for creating beautiful works of art. These artists were welcoming enough to allow me into their world to spend time shooting footage of them doing what they do best. It has thus far been the most enjoyable shooting experience I've had since I dove headlong into timelapse and hyperlapse photography earlier this year.
I'm looking forward to continuing to work with these folks, as well as meeting new artists to collaborate with. It's my hope that in the process of exercising and demonstrating my own shooting techniques I can bring some additional and well deserved attention to these skilled members of our local Austin art community.
