Interview with Tim Smith

Interviews

17 June 2016

Posted by Anna Fraser

Hi Tim! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?

I've been shooting professionally since 2009, and I'm based in Essex, but travel around England and Wales looking for the perfect photographic opportunity. I'm happiest when behind a camera.

QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?

AI'm struggling with this one; I was alone on Welcome Beach in Devon as the tide was coming in. I had to cross a stream flowing from the cliffs across the beach, I was in a hurry to avoid getting cut off by the tide. With my camera bag on my back and a tripod with camera and filters on my shoulder, I slipped and cracked my head on a rock, although I was more worried about my camera and equipment. Luckily for me I stayed conscious and regained my footing. Camera case smashed, ND filter washed away, pride hurt, head sore but at least I was able to get back to my car before the tide got to me. Weird? Not sure. Scary, yes. Lucky, yes. Pleased to say that despite camera damage, my trusty Canon 5D Mk2 continued to work. Thank goodness for insurance though!!

QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?

ACanon 5D mk2, Canon 6D & Canon 5D converted for infra red. My favoured set up...Using 6D as main camera 24-105mm (it's my workhorse) but I love the 70-300mm. I use Lee Filters, especially ND Graduated & x10 ND, Manfrotto tripod. I take most shots using a tripod and a cable release with mirror lock-up. Default ISO100, f/11.

QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?

AIt's more than one tip but rolled in to one...The eye is what counts, the equipment only serves to translate what lies before you, and take what pictures you want, not what you feel others expect.

My favourite picture? ....this is not easy; I think 'Sunrise'. I had left home at around 03:00 in order to get to the downs overlooking the Weald of Sussex, to be in place about... Read more

My favourite picture? ....this is not easy; I think 'Sunrise'. I had left home at around 03:00 in order to get to the downs overlooking the Weald of Sussex, to be in place about an hour before sunrise. I knew the weather was forecast to be clear but did not expect the mist which I could see forming as I walked up Firle Beacon. Ultimately it was one of those scenes landscape photographers pray for!

Taken before sunrise on the harbour wall at Mevagissey in Cornwall. I was intrigued by the delicate colours in the sky and deliberately chose to compose the shot with the small lighthouse in bottom left hand corner. The idea is to draw the viewer in to the picture through the lighthouse and up in to the coloured sky. I've always liked this image. Read less

I shot this on a very bright and sunny day just over a year ago. The lighting conditions were ideal for infra red photography using my converted Canon 5D. The fresh new growth produces such a bright whiteness as does the cloud. A very contrasty scene, but well balanced. Read less

This part of the Jurassic Coast of Dorset has to be one of the most photographed landmarks in England. In failing light at the end of a November day, I used a x10 ND filter to capture movement in the sparse clouds. By doing so, it seems as if the clouds are actually radiating from the tip of the door. I enjoyed this because to date I have not seen another one like it! Read less

A few years ago the RHS had a wild flower meadow at their Hyde Hall gardens in Essex. A bright blue sky was an ideal background for the bight cornflowers with some splashes of yellow in the mix too. By shooting upwards from a very low position using a 14mm lens, I was able to get very close to the flowers and fill the bottom of the frame Read less

I reached the cliff top at Dunwich before there was any light in the sky so I was able to watch night become day with one of those fabulous dawns so beloved by landscape photographers. The light and colour changes are quick but subtle. I shot a series over a 30 minute period, but this one I think best illustrated the moment. Read less

The Walbrook Building near Cannon Street station in London is a fascinating piece of modern architecture. I wanted some negative space in the image but with no cloud in the sky I felt it might be too negative, so I waited until a plane at high altitude had entered the space. Without the contrail I doubt the image would have worked. Read less
