Timothy Park

Timothy Park(1)Timothy Park began taking photographs as a child, emulating his father, an accomplished hobbyist photographer. At the age of ten he traveled to Japan with his Dad's camera in hand, snapping away. He became the photo editor of his high school newspaper, and was active in covering sports. A job after his senior year at a 1-hour photo lab cemented his love for the craft, and introduced him to the profession.

Timothy started his career as a freelance photographer in 1992, after graduating from college. He holds a degree in Commercial Photography from Art Institute of Seattle. Following graduation, he returned to Milwaukie, Oregon where he grew up. Tim operated his business in Milwaukie for 16 years before moving to Redmond, Oregon.  Free time is spent with his wife and two boys. Skiing, camping, biking, water sports and "beach time in warm places" are some of his favorite things. Tim is also very involved with his Christian faith, and spends as much time as he can lending help to, and documenting projects in Nicaragua, Mexico and Mississippi.  He also teaches black and white film photography to high school students.  Despite all the activity, just a great cup of coffee and conversation with a friend can make his day.

The timing of Timothy’s career allowed him to develop and master skills over a wide range of photographic subjects.  Having built his career shooting images on film, he transitioned the fine skills required for film shooting into the digital realm.  Subjects he has become an expert in creating imagery of include people (environmental, corporate and studio portraiture), large and small product, commercial and residential architecture and fashion. Timothy has become an expert determining the purpose and driving need for imagery, allowing him to create imagery that closely alights with his client’s objectives.
