Talented British photographer Tim Flach is one of the many wildlife photography enthusiasts. He shoots horses, dogs, cats, pigs, monkeys, bats and many others. The photographer became famous for being the first to use advertising techniques in photographs with animals. “I can be an artist and sculpt what I want. Each of my photographs is a carefully thought out plan, absolutely everything is staged in it, starting with the composition and ending with the animals, properly processed in Photoshop. Many people are indignant: "these are artificial pictures, there is nothing beautiful in them, and there cannot be anything beautiful," but I think they are wrong."
Tim Flach is a young (only 25 years old) but very talented and promising photographer. He was born in London and now lives and works there. The first time Tim noticed the "photogenicity" of animals was at the London Zoo, and his first shooting experience took place there. This lesson helped him decide on his future specialty. In 1983 he completed his master's degree at St Martin's School of the Arts and received his diploma in photography. Now his fame, without exaggeration, thunders all over the world: Tim is the most famous advertising photographer working with the largest international corporations.
The photographer made a successful career in the advertising business, worked in this industry for more than one year, and having become quite famous, he calmed down. So it would have ended if one day he did not need animals to shoot a video. "Why can't you photograph them right in the studio?" - Tim thought, and really brought a couple of monkeys to his workshop. And he got so carried away that he began to photograph animals in a studio with professional lighting (later, retouching was added to his photographs).
For the sake of interest, Tim Flach's pictures can be compared to those from the Canadian master Gregory Colbert or the animal world from Laurent Baheux.
Later, Tim Flach moved the studio to the open sky, closer to the places where animals live, thereby breaking the stereotypes of filming wildlife. And here his rich experience in creating advertising images came in handy: the animals deprived of the context of the habitat in Tim's photographs make an indelible impression, amaze with their emotionality and expression. The history of the centuries-old unique partnership between humans and animals takes on a new sound, reflected in the photographs of Tim Flack.
Tim's work has been published in many reputable publications, for example in Stern Magazine, the photographer has received many prizes, in particular the Association of Photographers award. You can see the work of Tim Flach and learn more about him on the master's website.
