Tell me about how you originally got into your craft, Tim.
I was given a camera when I was 9 years old and I've been taking photographs ever since. I spend a long time creating the concepts based on observations and memories and I work to achieve the images by using traditional photographic techniques.
I attended art school where I studied painting, drawing, and graphic design.
I use old cameras and a variety of old lenses, some I've made myself. I try and give my images a handmade feel.
What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
Walking! I could walk around the world.
What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your business?
Selling and marketing. It's always hard.
When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a photographer, and here I am.
What item in your collection would you like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
What other artists out there do you love?
I spend my spare time visiting galleries so I see a lot of art. I admire many artists but if I were to choose one it would be Jacques Henri Lartigue.
What does your future hold?
I don't know what my future holds, but at this moment I am very happy doing what I do.
