Tim McGuire has been a photographer for 33 years, starting when he was in early high school, going on to study photography and graphic arts in college, and then continuing to learn while making a living through various avenues of commercial and editorial photography since then. Tim has always been an artist and is constantly inspired by the world around him and especially by the more natural world, or what he would call the "great outdoors".
His earliest inspiration was the landscapes and light of the high desert plateau and mountains of the Four Corners area, where Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona meet. Twenty-‐five years ago when he moved to Seattle he became inspired with the slightly more damp landscapes of the Pacific Northwest and now finds inspiration around the world in his travels with his wife, Amy.
As a patient observer and someone who craves deep and meaningful experience in nature, Tim uses his personal and visual talents as a photographer along with his cameras to create and capture his experience in dynamic and emotional imagery. This “Trees” exhibit is a tribute to the beauty, form, line, complexity, and simplicity of these amazing works of nature we are often surrounded by and often fail to really take the time to truly appreciate.
