Tim Wagner's artistic abilities were cultivated early on in his childhood - a mother who was a master of weaving and lace making, a father who crafted fine woodwork, and a family that regularly enjoyed, encouraged and excelled in various forms of art and music together.
His passion for photography began at a very young age being the self appointed family photographer. "I loved loading the film into the camera and I was mesmerized by those flash cubes", he says.
The London Bridge at Lake Havasu was one of his first subjects as a professional photographer which has now made it's way onto the Havasu Community Credit Union's Visa cards. "Capturing beautiful images, continues to give me the inspiration to seek out new subjects - the Hong Kong Skyline, the Hawaiian beaches, the Pitons of St. Lucia, and many others as I have traveled around the world."
One of his biggest triumphs was a week long hike into the Havasupai Indian Reservation to photograph several waterfalls that were destroyed only a few months later by flood. The camera has been a way for others to experience this beauty through his eyes.
Tim now turns much of his focus on people. "I've studied with many famous photographers in my career, but it's my subjects that have taught me the most, and I thank them for the opportunity to capture and learn from them. A photographer once told me to follow the light, and the subject will appear. Now, I identify the subject and create my own light."
Please take a few moments to wander through my galleries and view some of the wonderful images that have been bestowed on me as I explore an amazing world of people, places, light and imagery.
