About the Photographer
Timm Chapman is an award winning photographer whose work hangs in both private & corporate collections. His images have been featured in publications all over North America including National Geographic Traveler, Arizona Highways and United Airlines' Hemispheres' magazine, Frommer's Travel Guides and others.
Since purchasing his first ‘real’ camera at 12 years of age, Timm began his photographic journey in grade school, taking photography in both his junior and senior high schools over the span of 5 years. By the time he was in the 12th grade, Timm was already developing and printing colour prints in the school lab. At the time, he never knew it would become a life-long journey of learning, filled with challenges and reward.
Over 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.
Capturing 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.
It is a challenge that Timm equates to 99% frustration and 1% elation.
The 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.
Born 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.
Timm 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 other early Nikon space cameras by clicking the navigation bar at the top of the page.
