My pedigree

My portfolio ranges from celebrity, event and music photography to serving as official photographer for the British Royal Family on the Isle of Man. I have covered a variety of events such as the Isle of Man TT, Maloof Money Cup, 947 Cycle Challenge, Ultra Dance, Skateistan and Red Nose Day events.

This is me 🙂

I have had the privilege of shooting over 300 weddings and this is my 16th year in the wedding and commercial photography fields. I’m an Official Fujifilm X Photographer, Litra Ambassador and a proud member of Fearless Photographers and the WPJA.

My approach

I work solo on assignment. No assistants, no bag-carriers, no second shooters. It’s just me, with my near silent cameras – able to tell the story from early morning to late evening. I’m not lazy, I don’t get tired, and I’m everywhere. My documentary coverage is complete and total.

‘When a photographer can sense, anticipate and then document moments as a journalist would, all without speaking or changing the scene, reporting the naturally discovered events. Results are truly timeless and telling of the day’s spirit and couple’s love, all based on the belief that people look best on their own.’

When it come’s to weddings, if you want dozens of posed photos, and a wedding album that looks much like everyone else’s, I’m not the photographer for you. Plenty of wonderful photographers will happily oblige, but that’s just not me.

I’m your guy if you like the idea of a sincere eyewitness to your love and dedication. An honest photographic reflection of your beautiful day. A sincere documentary-style approach, based on authentic, unpretentious, unpredictable, incredible images.

I’ll be there for the showers and shaves, the makeup and hairdryers, the little kids asking, ‘When are we going?’ But I don’t take you away from your guests for hours and hours. When requested to, I will shoot beautiful portraits of you and your special people, and then let you get on with the magic of your day – while I capture everything else.

His reputation

“Tim quickly builds a rapport with his subjects and the rest of the team on a shoot, our talent know him and enjoy working with him. He is non-intrusive, and can capture an experience without excessive posing, but will also always spot an angle or set up that inevitably produces the money shot. Tim is a pleasure to work with as he manages himself, he doesn’t require direction, but takes it when there is a specific instruction. He always gets the shots that capture the experience or activation.”
– Pippa Rowles, PR Manager, Primedia (947 and Talk Radio 702)

“Tim managed to capture the purity and deep connection shared at the religious ceremony, the biggest craziest party, the first dance, our jovial parents and family who gathered to celebrate our long-awaited union, and even New Year’s Eve. Not all photographers are able to do that: capture the essence of a 12-year relationship in just one click.” – Ella Bella, founder of Generation Earth
