Tim’s inability to avoid biking, the mountains, a good time, and all things daring and dirty, combined with his skills behind the lens, have made him a desiderated photographer for outdoor, adventure, music, and life-style projects.
With a focus in photography, Tim graduated with a degree in New Media Arts from UNC Asheville. Mountain biking and adventure travel have taken Tim from his home in Western NC to Oman, South Africa, the Yukon, British Columbia, and across the US, including the Rockies and the Pacific Northwest. Throughout his travels, often from the saddle of his bike, Tim photo-documents the people, the landscapes, and the experiences that he encounters.
Tim is a frequent contributor for The US National Whitewater Center. He writes for the US Whitewater Explorer Series, collaborated on and was featured in the 2017 film The Al Hajar Traverse, and shot the 2017 Tuck Fest featuring Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats.
Additionally, he is a freelancer for Teton Gravity Research and was the photographer for the 2018 TGR Tested: Bentonville Bike Test. He photographed the 2015 and 2017 Oskar Blues Burning Can Festival and his image of the Blue Ridge Mountains is used as branding for the Oskar Blues IPA and merch.
In 2014, his photo taken in Whitehorse, Yukon was a semi-finalist for Pinkbike Photo of the Year. He was selected, in 2015, to shoot the Freehub Photo Annual 6.3 and was invited to the Deep Summer photo competition at Crankworx Whistler.
