Unique images from challenging environments
Cutting to the right story and flow.
Storytelling from concept to completion.
Tim is an independent filmmaker specialising in storytelling from outdoor environments. First and foremost a cinematographer, he also works as an editor and self-directs many projects.
Passionate about documentary; his work includes award-winning feature-length film, broadcast television episode, and viral web content. He strives for a cinematic feel to his work whilst prioritising dynamic story structure.
With a thirst for adventure and new challenges, his work and travels have taken him around the world. Highlights include using paragliders to film ski exploration in the Arctic, shooting in the waves amidst surf exploration in the Indian and Pacific oceans, documenting tribal rituals in SE Asia, filming from helicopters in the Alps, and simply having the fortune to meet all sorts of inspiring people along the way. Most recent clients include the BBC Natural History Unit, Red Bull Media House and The North Face.
Tim also holds a degree in Zoology, is a certified Divemaster, and sells his photos to international publications.
