This is a broad business based seminar that is aimed both at photographers currently in business who are seeking additional guidance and direction as well as those thinking about starting their own business within this industry. The seminar that Tim delivers is very much a group event with his class and not only will give those attending many valuable lessons on how to direct and grow a business but also will help to ensure that you know the right questions to ask yourself in developing that business.
This is very much a ‘no holds barred’ class where Tim, having built a successful business himself and a respected name within just 8 years from scratch, will be revealing all through sharing the pits & falls, as well as success and gold mines he came across along his own journey.
He will start by looking briefly at what kind of work he has built his business model on and then move to the thought and work process required to start to build up a successful photography business and achieve a positive global reputation, positioning yourself successfully within your chosen industry. This is something that Tim is very aware of having built a successful business himself and a respected name within just 8 years from scratch. The session will look at how to make the right informed choices, ask yourself the right questions, and how to set a clear vision for your own path way to success.
In this seminar, Tim will also look at how he gained his initial clients, won contracts and kept his clients as his business relationship and evolved with them. He will cover how to approach agencies, how to effectively make those first steps and approaches and most of all, and utterly crucially, this seminar will be about explaining how to understand your position better within the field and how to put yourself and your work across in such a way that your clients understand your benefits to them and not just that you can take nice pictures. It's about becoming a trusted and valued name within your industry and creating a need for what you do and not just sitting there and waiting for the phone to ring.

He is the humble recipient of many awards including International Advertising Photographer of the Year 2010, UK Motor Industry Photographer of the Year 2010, Hasselblad Photographer of the month Oct 2010, Professional Photographer of the Year 2009 as well as receiving Distinction Awards for his work from such professional boards as the RPS.
