‘I don’t know where we are going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring…’
- David Bowie
Thanks for taking the time to visit my website and learn a little bit about me... I’m a photographer (based in Chichester, West Sussex) with a passion for all things creative.
Why do I love taking pictures?
For me, photography is all about capturing that magic moment which can never be recreated or seen again, whether that be a beautiful bride, that perfect expression, your child’s first birthday or silly impression… The first read of a book, that one special look, the fancy dress photo your gran never took!
With so many talented photographers out there, it’s important to know you’ve chosen the right one for YOU. Taking photos is a two way relationship, after all, you’re likely to be on the other side of the lens, and having a camera framing your face can feel like a daunting experience.
Fear not! I’m a relaxed, friendly and stress-free kind of guy… Honest! It’s my job to get to know you and capture your special moments, so here’s a bit about me…
I’m Tim, an all-round creativity obsessed photographer, musician, tutor, vinyl junkie, coffee lover and incredibly proud dad. I’ve lived in Chichester all my life, I love it here. I love the beautiful surroundings, my wonderful friends and the vibrant community.
As much as I love taking photos, it isn’t the only thing occupying my time… When I’m not with my beautiful daughter, you are likely to find me with a guitar in my hands, playing in bands, pretending to be a rock star, or tutoring from home. In those few moments that I'm not keeping busy, you can find me appreciating a good cup of coffee or enjoying a perfectly poured glass of wine while I kick back and spin a few records.
So, what's my style?
Photographers are are all different, we all have quirks and ways in which we like to shoot. If i had to describe my photography is 3 words, my style could be summed up like this: ‘I - tell - stories’. My aim is to capture you in the most natural and personal way possible, with a sprinkling of quirky creativity to keep things fun!
I hope you enjoy taking the time to look through my portfolio! :)
