Tim specializes in ultra-high-resolution panoramic images. His passion for the outdoors takes him to remote hike-in locations where he packs in his photography and camping gear in search of unique landscape compositions and warm "golden hour" light. Tim believes that mountains, streams, and oceans are the world's most beautiful pieces of art, and his goal is to capture vibrant images that reflect the true beauty of the earth so that a brief moment of perfect light can be enjoyed for years to come.
Tim Shields has traveled throughout North America, Europe, and China in search of the perfect landscape image. He has won numerous photographic awards and lives in White Rock, Canada. He is an honors graduate from the BC Institute of Technology in Civil and Structural Engineering and holds a master of arts degree.
