F6ix Grand Opening

Last week I shot the grand opening for RMD Group’s newest venue – F6ix. Can you guess where it’s located? Yep, you got it. F and 6th street downtown. The night featured extravagant expenditures on champagne, dirty dancing, and of course, some funky fresh beats. Alongside, Hef’s ex-fiance Crystal Harris hosted the kickoff event which […]

Mirian Silva - Tim…I am a big fan of your work. Watched you on Creative Live…what lens did you use for these shots?October 3, 2011 – 4:45 pm

Ashley Goodwin - Ughhh, is that CRYSTAL?!?!? You didn’t snag up Hef’s old girl? ;) Hot photos, as always! I feel like I’m at the party, minus the hangover. xoJune 30, 2011 – 4:30 pm

If loving you is wrong, I don’t want to be right

I’ve met a lot of photographers who are adamant about being “technically correct” when it comes taking photos. But you know what? Sometimes, being technically correct – sometimes just DOESN’T DO IT. For the most part, I like to think of my style as clean, fresh, fun, and modern. At times though, I think it […]

Ashley Goodwin - Seriously interesting, for real! I have often wondered if I should go more “event” processing than “me” processing sometimes, and this totally worked. Especially love the italian place, you really thought about that one! & who in the heck has a VIP reception and then broadcasts it to the other patrons that can’t get in? I’d love to hear a little bit more about that one, not sure if I’m sold, but I’m sure you’d sell me on the tactic. :)

s h e r r y - Awesome stuff. The post-processing you chose definitely fits each of these events! I find myself being more consistent than daring. I really should challenge myself to change it up a bit. I have a preset that I use to gently tweak each image, and then I’ll mess with them individually some more. I’ve been thinking of doing more b/w lately too! Gotta try it! :)June 21, 2011 – 10:21 pm

Megs - YES! Amen, amen, amen. Here is to letting your eyes choose. :) LOVE THIS POST.June 21, 2011 – 4:03 pm

Ben Nash - Yeah man, I hear ya. I like to use LR presets a lot! And I like making an image unique. Photography is always changing, so I think for photographers, a lot of what they produce will be changing. Maybe not a lot, but some. Unless your old school, and take the same kind of shots and edit them the same every time, I think inside of creativity you can have a lot of change. I agree that it’s probably good to stay consistent, but also creativity will create change and inconsistency to some level. Sweet pics man! I really like the Italian restaurant pics. Keep em’ coming. I admire your work.June 21, 2011 – 8:08 am

Inspiration(s)

Lately I’ve had a few chats with some other photographers I know about this topic, so I thought I’d jot down a few notes on my experience with my own inspiration, and how I currently approach the whole idea. When I first came around to the idea of doing wedding photography, my initial inspiration was […]

5 secret reasons to keep your blog updated | Tim King Blog | Tim King Photographer - [...] your work might very well be inspiring to someone who’s just starting out.  I remember the first photographers who I came across when I first started out, and I would read their posts for HOURS-ON-END some [...]December 7, 2011 – 2:54 pm

Dan Dilworth - I think the defining part of this post is that transition moving from attempting to emulate those whom you feel have “made it” versus turning that telescope inward and really focusing on turning yourself into a brand. The people whom you’ve chosen to call out as inspiration possess characteristics that embody a strong work ethic and life philosophy that would make someone successful in any field, not just photography. It can be liberating having a solid understanding of your own self and brand and having that reflected in your photography, because at that point you’re not “chasing” clients, you’re being true to yourself and “attracting” the right client. You’re on the right path grasshopper :)

Mike and Steph Engaged!

Had an awesome time hanging out with these two. I’ve known Mike through working different events the last few years or so – has stood out as a solid guy in business & through his personality. We met up downtown to capture a few shots of the two around the gaslamp district, finishing up at […]

Kelly Douglas - This is easily one of the best engagement shoots I have seen… no cheesy posing and natural light that doesn’t take over the whole photo and is not over exposed? Yes please.June 14, 2011 – 8:00 am

Maria - Great job Tim!

Each time I look at your work I realize that there’s so much more to learn. It’s always like a breath of fresh air for me (yes, I stole your expression and keep using on special occasions :P), thank you for making me push myself harder.

The whole shoot looks very solid, the color tones are so nice and warm. I love the shot with the sun flare peeking through the stairs and a little bit of the “tilt shift lens” effect. There’s something about the very last image that makes it so real and um… lasting.

PS Your comment about the photo with a purse made me smile. :)June 13, 2011 – 9:50 pm

Loews Chef Cellar Series

You may remember me mentioning Loews Coronado’s newest chef, Gabriel Gonzales a couple months back. Well, just recently – the hotel decided to showcase some of his newest items featured on their summer menu, and guess who has 2 thumbs and was there to document the night? Yeah, you guessed it. The night featured a […]
