About the Photographer
Yeah, that's me. I am better known as Tim. I have been professionally involved in the graphic and photographic field since 1974. I started in Southern California, but returned to Meadville with my wife in 1980. My photography is a hobby I pursue in the evenings and weekends. My small studio is located at my home in Meadville. During the day I am at our shop downtown. My wife and I own and operate Meadville Fine Arts, on the corner of Market and Chestnut Street, Meadville PA.
Everyday images with a unique twist, is one thing I try to achieve. I enjoy doing "art" with photography as my medium. Computer effects and manipulation is a way of creating interesting compositions that draw the viewer in and hopefully, deliver a particular message. Many of my pieces are a combination of several photo elements along with computer generated textures and colors.
Portrait photography has been a longtime interest with me. I like to combine my passion for graphics, digital imaging and artistic expression in my portrait work. Some of the unique elements I add to my work are special effects made available only by working in a digital format. Each shot has an unlimited array of possibilities available to it. Effects like "high key" or "Rembrandt" lighting, soft focus, textures and paint styles are just a few of the ways I can make an ordinary photo become a unique work of art.
