Event description

Description

Taking nice pictures is not enough to be a successful photographer. It takes a well thought out business strategy and crucially a good understanding of how the process of selling yourself works. Photographer Tim Wallace is an absolute master in this field – he is the driving force and creative mind behind Ambient Life and works internationally with many high end brands. In this business based session he will take you through the thought and work process of building up a successful photography business to 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 over recent years from scratch. The seminar will help you to look at how to start making the right informed choices, the questions that you need to ask yourself, and how to set a clear vision for your own path to success rather than just 'hope' things work out for you. You will learn how to think laterally about your brand and direction, style of work and industry sector and how those differ and demand different approaches. Tim will look at how to approach agencies and how to effectively make those first steps and approaches to clients. And most of all and utterly crucially it will be about understanding 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 is about becoming a monster in your industry and creating a need for what you do and not just sitting there and waiting for the phone to ring.

Note: Tim mainly works commercial clients but this seminar is for all kinds of photographers

About the photographer:

Commercial Photographer Tim Wallace is an award winning commercial photographer based in Manchester England and working Internationally his work is often described as both creative and dramatic.

Tim Wallace’s work spans both the commercial and advertising sectors and has been at the forefront of both fields for over a decade. Based in Manchester England, Tim’s work takes him to all 4 corners of the globe shooting for some of the most iconic brands through his transport photography, from supercars to private jets and luxury yachts.

Tim works internationally with many high clients across the globe such as Jaguar Land Rover, Peugeot, Mercedes and Morgan as well as shooting some of the worlds most iconic brands such as Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Ferrari in the UK and Europe to Dodge, Chevrolet and Mustang in the US. Over recent years he has also broadened his AmbientLife brand to include other transport related work such as HGV Truck and large vehicle photography, Aviation and aircraft work, engineering and logistics.

Tim first started out in the darkrooms of the Daily Mail where he developed his unique appreciation for tone and contrast and even today he is very much an advocate of the benefits of shooting and learning the photography craft through first learning to shoot and develop film properly, as well as learn to print that subsequent work in the darkroom. Having had work published in the Times, Guardian and Independent, Tim's career was clearly on track from a young age. Fast forward to the UK recession in the late 80's and Tim decided to join the Royal Navy and went on to serve with 42 Commando Royal Marines in many parts of the world. In 2006 Tim decided it was time to go back to a career in photography and so established his own company, AmbientLife, with its very strong idea's towards both its goals and its own creative output. Over the past decade AmbientLife have worked with a who's who of automotive royalty, from Jaguar, Aston Martin and beyond. Tim's work is highly sought after, and this is driven also by his string of awards including British Commercial Advertising Photographer of the Year, and the acclaimed UK Motor Industry Car Photographer of the Year award to name but a few.
His ability to capture and create shots that showcase not only a car as it appears visually but also its sheer personality and soul are much sought after and often written about when he talks to magazines and in interviews that he gives in the Europe and US.
