About Tim Tolford

Tim has been involved with photography for over 30 years starting at the very moment he was given his first camera … a Brownie Bullet!

Following formal training through high school and college photography courses and experiential training and guidance ‘in the field’ from photographer friends and colleagues, Tim became “the guy with the camera.”

Experience includes: public relations photographer, free-lance photographer for local news media and fire departments, darkroom developer/printer, landscape and scenery photography, wedding and special events, promotional advertisements and brochure photography, Bird Portraits© and Sports Memories and outdoor family candids.

Tim’s interest and emphasis on digital hi-resolution bird close-ups evolved from his life long involvement in volunteer research as a Field Ornithologist. In about 2000, Tim labeled the bird close-ups as “Bird Portraits.” It is a focused style first conceptualized by Tim when all other bird photographers were going for the best bird-in-the-field photo, or bird book photo. Tim wanted to do something different, hence the unique and one-of-a-kind posing of Tim’s “Bird Portraits.” All others ‘Bird Portraits’ are imitations!

The past 10 years, Tim has evolved into a state of the art sports photographer specializing in youth sports and action sports. This branch-off is called “Midwest Sportsography” and includes the latest in professional designs for sports leagues and teams with hundreds of sports memory items on which to have your action and/or sports photo including FATHEAD products!
