With a helipad on the roof, patients can be taken from the helicopter and be in surgery in just 90 seconds. It is equipped with a RAPTOR theatre - which has a CT scanner in the large theatre that can accommodate up to 15 surgeons and other staff. This will likely save thousands of lives over the years as all critical facilities are in one place. 


We were honoured to be asked to install 77 large glass artworks throughout the building, including, crucially, in patient bedrooms, where our soft nature images can be instrumental in helping patients heal from what is likely to be one of the most difficult times of their lives.

Similarly, we were able to put some uplifting nature images into the on-call surgeon's bedrooms, family rooms, and the body-viewing room - all areas of potentially high stress where a little calm goes a long way. 

Our PhotoGlassWorks work brilliantly in clinical contexts and are a big upgrade from walls that are either cold, clinical and bare, or festooned with clinical notices that no-one reads. PhotoGlasWorks are deep cleanable, very robust, and have a very long lifespan (50+ years). Combined with our beautiful nature and local images, they uplift patients, staff and visitors and make the building far more welcoming and human.

Latest Installation - New Emergency Department at Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester https://www.bluepearlphoto.com/blog/2019/1/latest-installation---new-emergency-department-at-wythenshawe-hospital-manchester We were recently commissioned to produce multiple artwork installations for the very large new Emergency Department at Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester. Emergency Departments are places of anxiety, high drama, pain, shock and, occasionally, major trauma. The artworks had to transmit a calming, healing quality to the environment, whilst being easy to deep clean, very durable, beautiful and with great longevity. A combination of our Manchester cityscapes and local nature images with our PhotoGlassWorks Front Lit and PhotoWall products fitted the bill perfectly. The very large walls provided us with a chance to install some of our very wide panoramic installations - one of which is 8.1m wide in a 20+m corridor!  The full gallery can be viewed here.

Latest Installation - BMI The Chiltern Hospital https://www.bluepearlphoto.com/blog/2018/11/latest-installation---bmi-the-chiltern-hospital A refurbished reception area required suitably impressive artworks at The Chiltern Hospital. We designed large pieces using a combination of forest and local images on both our PhotoGlassWorks and PhotoVinyl products, that have received very positive responses from patients, staff and visitors alike. The nature images provide a calm and very welcoming feeling to the reception areas - great for steadying and reassuring nerves at an anxious time.

Latest Installation - IET Savoy Place, London https://www.bluepearlphoto.com/blog/2018/11/latest-installations---iet-savoy-place-london The Institution of Engineering and Technology needed artworks in their Staff Offices and Hot Desking areas in Savoy Place, London. Our PhotoPanels product worked well to provide a value solution for some fairly large walls. In particular, our super high res aerial images of London worked very well in the hot desking area - at 2.3m x 1m, these pieces give a kind of 'Super Google Earth' experience!

PhotoPanels 1m x 1.5m in Staff Offices - Scenes of LondonPhotoPanels 1m x 1.5m in Staff Offices - Scenes of London

Each of these pieces is 1m x 1.5m - just the right size when the ceilings are over 4m.

NEW SERVICE - Aerial Shooting + Latest Images - London Aerial https://www.bluepearlphoto.com/blog/2018/4/new-service---aerial-shooting-latest-images---london-aerial A commission from Sky Sports last Summer required shooting Stamford Bridge Stadium from the air. The process required significant preparation with the result that we are now able to offer Aerial Photography to our clients. Whether you require a building, a development site, an event or an area photographed in super high 100 Mpixel resolution, call us, we can help!

Our latest images are London Aerials. At 100Mpixels, the detail in these images is extraordinary, and right up to the edges too - no blurry areas away from the centre of the image. Any of them would make an amazing full-wall wallpaper installation. A selection of images is below.

New Product: PhotoVinyl on Lockers https://www.bluepearlphoto.com/blog/2017/4/new-product-photovinyl-on-lockers The world is changing. Personal desks are disappearing, to be replaced with hot desking and a personal locker. We are able to transform a bank of white lockers into an outstanding and uplifting work of art. Our unique range of super-high resolution, super-wide panoramic images is particularly suitable for this application, where images will be seen both at a distance and very close up.

The following selected installations were produced for a large financial institution in London and Warsaw. We provide a full service from art consultancy and concepts, through project management to expert installation.

Major New Projects Completed, Many New London Images https://www.bluepearlphoto.com/blog/2016/4/major-new-projects-completed-many-new-london-images Exterior Back Lit PhotoGlassWork, 18m x 3mExterior Back Lit PhotoGlassWork, 18m x 3mThe Crown Estate and Keith Tyson Projects approached us to design and manufacture this large piece of public art in the heart of the West End of London, as part of a renovation project of one of the blocks on Regent Street. It is located on New Burlington Place, just off Regent Street, opposite Hamley's.

Because it is an exterior piece, we had to develop some significant new technology to ensure the piece remains weather-sealed and to ensure its longevity.

Keith Tyson's spectacular 'Nature Painting' image of the River Thames with historical maps overlaid is complemented by the intensity of colour rendering of our back-lit glass process. A light sensor and sophisticated electronic dimming allow the backlighting to be dimmed when light levels drop, thus allowing the colour saturation to remain constant.

The two year process required from first enquiries to completion was challenging and required all of our project management and administrative experience. The 5-day installation with a dozen quarter-tonne glass panels to install safely was a good test of our onsite capabilities. Altogether, an amazing project to have successfully completed.
An extraordinary year was topped by the completion of an extraordinary installation. The above piece is our first exterior artwork - a Back Lit PhotoGlassWork, 18m x 3m on New Burlington Place (just off Regent Street) in the heart of the West End of London. We were commissioned by The Crown Estate and Keith Tyson Projects to design, manufacture and install this large piece of public art on a busy thoroughfare and it required all our ingenuity, project management skills and great work by our manufacturing partners to successfully complete it. 

Back Lit PhotoGlassWorks Wall, 5m x 2.3mBack Lit PhotoGlassWorks Wall, 5m x 2.3mWarwick Business School commissioned our Back lit PhotoGlassWork wall product for their reception area. Using one of Richard Osbourne's kinetic abstracts, the wall features the WBS logo at large size. It is an attractive focal point for the reception area as proven by the many students who take selfies in front of it to send home! Earlier in the year, we completed another Back Lit PhotoGlassWork wall - this time for the reception centre-piece of Warwick Business School. The 5m x 2.3m piece uses on of Richard Osbourne's Kinetic Abstract images combined with a large corporate logo and has proved very popular with students wanting to take selfies to send home!

Wythenshawe Hospital Hybrid Theatres ArtworksWythenshawe Hospital Hybrid Theatres ArtworksThe building of new hybrid theatres at UHSM meant that some existing windows had a view of solid walls. We were commissioned to cover the windows with vinyl to give a different outlook. Two large window sections, each around 7m x 2.5m, received views of the Peak District, just a few miles from the hospital. A further 12 smaller windows were decorated with wildflowers. Lastly, the theatre staff had their staff area decorated with 3 PhotoGlassWorks depicting a local scene, Mam Tor, at dawn. More recent projects include the above at UHSM Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester. New theatre building projects meant that these windows had a view of brick walls, so we were commissioned to give them a more pleasing outlook. Using images taken in the Peak District, just a few miles away, we were able to make a wonderful 'trompe l'oeil' in these very busy corridors. Other images included a dozen smaller views of native British wildflowers - much endangered by habitat loss and climate change these days.

Salford Quays Dusk, PhotoGlassWorks Front Lit Triptych, 4.05m x 0.9mSalford Quays Dusk, PhotoGlassWorks Front Lit Triptych, 4.05m x 0.9m We installed more artworks into Salford Royal Hospital recently - click the above photo to see the gallery. This is a recent ultra-high resolution panoramic of Salford Quays at dusk produced as a 4.05 x 0.9m PhotoGlassWorks Front Lit triptych. Many patients and staff will see this on their way to operating theatres and we hope it both uplifts and calms them in these intense environments!

Lastly, you'll notice we've given this website a bit of a spring-clean: it should be much easier to navigate to our images now, especially on mobile devices. You'll also notice we have joined the 21st century and are connected on multiple social media now: as well as Twitter and Facebook, we are also now on Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest.

Latest London Images, March 2015 https://www.bluepearlphoto.com/blog/2015/3/latest-london-images-march-2015 It's been a few years since a good haul of London images was added to our collections. The City - and our photographic gear - have changed a lot in that time, so these are much higher quality than any previous work, as well as being up to date. The regular format images are all 60 megapixel and, because of the extremely high quality lens used, startlingly detailed. The panoramics are even more detailed and suitable for enlargement up to 3m+ vertically and still be very clear and sharp. 

Full London collections can be seen here:  http://www.richardosbourne.com/london  and  http://www.richardosbourne.com/londonpanoramics
