About Me

I'm Tim McNiven.  I am a musician, artist, poet, writer, photographer, model, muse, and general pain in the ass.  A jack of many trades, yet truly a master of none.  I do not aspire to be a famous photographer, but I would be content if some of my images forever haunt the memories of their viewers.  To be honest, I am not really all that interested in modern trends or fashions, except for when I am...

I am a horrible self marketer.  I am usually more drawn to the macabre, especially in art, and song.  Should images created as a result of combined effort generate a financial gain, I would not be opposed to splitting the profits.  (I require a promotional release, but stipulate that either party may sell the images, but must split the proceeds.)

My main focus right now (at least in the photography sense) is on creating exhibition pieces, in order to promote my art work.  However, I am more then willing to shoot a style anybody wants for their book in exchange for an equal measure of effort or time on a piece that I am working on.

I have been dabbling with prosthetic and special effects makeup.  There are a couple of projects that I have on the burner that will be very makeup intensive, and may require several hours to prepare for mere minutes in front of the lens.  Both will have a dark and intense energy, and would be suited for someone comfortable with that vibe.  (If you wear a rosary...or here I suppose a CTR ring, these probably aren't for you.)

As well I am shooting a set of male figure studies in natural desert landscapes. 

I do have some studio equipment, and can shoot in a closed environment, but I am more inclined to shoot on location whenever possible.   

If there is something you would like to shoot, please don't hesitate to run it by me.  I would be more then willing to work out a trade, and am quite flexible with my style when I need to be.  I have shot for different publications, and even do the occasional wedding for the extra cash. 

I like to shoot in a fun drama free environment.  I am not here to date, or cruise.  If you need to bring an escort, I do not object, but make sure it is someone you would trust alone in your house with cash on the counter.

Kalifornia Kowgurl MM #302717  The Epitome of  a professional model.  She is punctual, follows direction, knows how to pose, is aware of her light, and is easy and fun to work with.  This girl would be an valuable addition for anyone who takes his/her photography seriously.  I can't remember the last time I had this much fun on a shoot too. 

TriMike  MM #613416  What can I say, Mike showed up on time, ready to shoot.  He knows very well how to position his body to take advantage of the light and the setting he is posing in.  I would recommend him to anyone from the most experienced photographer, to someone just starting out, as he is sure to make a great addition to your portfolio. 

Liz Fox - MM# 706119 Liz is a real pleasure to work with.  She is fun, has a great attitude, and knows where she needs to be to make the shot.  A natural!
