Tim is a London-based photographer and has worked in the commercial portraiture and advertising world for over 40 years. Alongside his varied commercial work, he has developed a unique eye for the serenity and calm induced by the seas' moods and shore landscapes. His long-exposure images have a dream-like quality that transports the viewer to the quiet and wonder of the natural world until you melt into them. The images are large-scale and are available frameless or in the Atelier house frame.
"My father bought me a Kodak Instamatic for my birthday in the early 1970s. Soon afterward, on the morning of my first day of school, standing outside our front door with the car engine running he crouched down and took a photograph of me with his Pentax Spotmatic and I took one of him in return. At the time I recall asking ‘why are we doing this?’ and he replied. ‘To remember the moment..’. I still have that photograph, and I think that was probably the beginning of my photographic interest. How could this small complicated contraption that I held in my hands be so powerful? Capable of stopping time so its owner can return to ‘the moment’ whenever the mood takes them. But it soon dawned on me it was more powerful than that. This contraption could not only transport you back to any given moment, but it could transport others there too. Others who were not even present.It was then that I recognized this power. The camera could not only capture a moment, it could tell you a story. What is more powerful than that? Since then I have been telling stories as best I can. Like all good stories they do not necessarily tell you where they are set, or who the characters are, let alone give you the answer. That is up to you."
