Interview: Photographer Tim Steele (UK)
Can you tell us a little about you?
60 year old full time Photographer…loves the outdoors, beaches & mountains.
How and when did you get into photography?
I was given my first camera when I was 4. I went full time seven years ago as a lifestyle change.
What does photography mean to you?
It is now my creative outlet which is important to me…but most of all I meet so many great people.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
Natural, generally people based with minimal processing.
Where do you get inspiration from?
Everywhere, so many amazing Photographers around.
Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?
I think mainly about the light and how to make the most of the location, then colour combinations or perspective.
Studio, on location or both?
Both, studio work got me into the full time business as I love playing with light…but then I love natural light too!
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
Paid Professional now.
What has been your most memorable session and why?
I have done a couple of relaxed Workshops with Dan Tidswell in Venice and Paris, both special places and with a very hard working model Ayla Rose who did a great job for us. I would have included the shots if they had been totally independent…some shots on my website though!
Nikon or Canon?
Sony, I changed from canon as I was fed up with the weight of DSLR’s
Favorite lens? Fast 85mm portrait lenses…currently a Sigma 85 f1.4
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
Look after your clients and do the best job for them that you can!
What do you think of our new magazine?
It’s great, I love to see work shared properly! Inspiration!
