This is a rare opportunity to be inspired by this legendary Master Artist.
Very few of photography's leaders remain relevant decade after decade. A professional photographer since 1968,
Tim opened his first studio in Florida in 1974 and reached national stature in the 1980s as a master printer --
for his revolutionary lighting style, and for his large format, black and white children's portraiture.
In 2015, Tim received the Helen K. Yancy Award from PPA for his influence on the industry.
As an innovator, Tim was one of the first to introduce instant image viewing, in a pre-digital era.
And, as an original Kodak Mentor, Tim Kelly is one of the only ones still supported.
Tim has been profiled in many magazines and other industry publications, including numerous occasions in Professional Photographer.
He is the author of multiple books, and seventeen DVDs. Tim has been featured on Photovision,
and has been a platform speaker at Imaging USA a half dozen times, and has been on the main stage at other conventions close to a hundred times.
He has received awards from all major photographic organizations, from National and SEPPA, is a Fellow of the ASP,
and is the recipient of lifetime achievement awards from several organizations.
