purchasing his first real camera at 12 years of age,
Timm began his self taught education into the art of photography.
At the time, he never knew it would become a life-long journey of
learning, filled with challenges and reward.
the years he has dabbled in all aspects of the medium, before finally
settling on his greatest love: landscape portraiture; with Mother
Nature as his model
Mother Nature is often a daunting task. She has many moods,..many
faces and a spectrum of beauty that is a true challenge to capture
accurately. All elements have to come together to give her the justice
she deserves. Light. Composition. Drama. Each must be present to
capture an image that evokes emotion.
is a challenge that Timm equates to 99% frustration and 1%
vivid colour saturation and sharp realism in his images details
are cornerstones of his chosen equipment. He shoots almost exclusively
with film and those images are recorded in a format four times the
size of standard 35mm. As such he is able to capture colours and
details beyond the grasp of digital.
in the UK and raised in Canada, Timm currently finds home at the
foot of the Superstition Mountains in Arizona; the heart of the
Desert Southwest, however his endless pursuit to capture Mother
Nature in all her glory will continue to take him all over the globe.
is also an avid NIKON camera collector. He has numerous cameras,
lenses and accessories from Nikon's storied past including 7 space
cameras used by NASA on both the Shuttle and International Space
Station expeditions. These cameras and lenses are quite different
than consumer models and you can learn much more about them and
