Tim Snow is a Montreal based photojournalist and photography educator. Not one to be worked into a corner, he enjoys shooting a wide spectrum of assignments for editorial and commercial clients, as well as private commissions.
"Being a photographer allows me to meet many interesting people and help tell their stories. It fuels a natural curiosity to talk to complete strangers that I feel most people have."
It is no surprise then that people are the dominate subject matter of Tim's work. From the street corner buskers to a world renowned musicians on stage in front of 25,000 people; from kids playing ball in the park to professional athletes and everyone in between, Tim treats those he photographs with equal respect and compassion.
"I strive to portray the people I photograph naturally and honestly and to treat each scene in such a way to complement my subject so that when someone looks at my photographs, they see the person and not some fancy lighting or post-processing trick."
Preferring to get to know his subjects before he photographs them, Tim takes the time to speak with them, put them at ease and learn something from them. Knowing his camera and lighting systems intimately, he works quickly and unobtrusively.
"I am extremely lucky to do this for a living! Photography is my passion and I love to share this passion with as many people as I am able to."
