Tim is quite the renaissance man! From attending Berklee on a full scholarship for bass guitar, to wine-making at J. Christopher Wines, Tim’s creative urge has driven him to pursue several outlets, including photography. When Tim was just five years old, his father began to teach him photography basics. They used an old Pentax Spotmatic which Mr. Malone had acquired during his days in the Vietnam war. Together, they would go to area parks and capture nature shots which allowed Tim to learn good technique. Tim then began to experiment with long exposures and depth of field with staged scenes and portraiture.
These days, Tim continues to shoot landscapes but has also begun to play with architectural photography, embracing the fault of lens distortion as well as precise timing to create abstract images from mundane and overshot subjects. PDXShan’s website background is an example of these techniques, revealing the warped fish-eye view of the underbelly of the Fremont Bridge on/off ramps paired with the appropriate timing to center the cloud. Tim also enjoys capturing simple expressive portraiture and landscapes that often tell a story. His preferred medium is black & white mainly because he finds it more expressive.
