Timm Chapman - Art Fairs & More

Welcome to Episode 094 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Timm Chapman!

Timm Chapman is an award winning photographer whose work hangs in both private & corporate collections. His images have been featured in publications all over North America including National Geographic Traveler, Arizona Highways and United Airlines' Hemispheres' magazine, Frommer's Travel Guides and others. Since purchasing his first ‘real’ camera at 12 years of age, Timm began his photographic journey in grade school, taking photography in both his junior and senior high schools over the span of 5 years. By the time he was in the 12th grade, Timm was already developing and printing colour prints in the school lab. At the time, he never knew it would become a life-long journey of learning, filled with challenges and reward. Over the years he has dabbled in all aspects of the medium, before finally settling on his greatest love: landscape portraiture; with Mother Nature as his model.

Timm is also an avid NIKON camera collector. He has numerous cameras, lenses and accessories from Nikon's storied past including 7 space cameras used by NASA on both the Shuttle and International Space Station expeditions. These cameras and lenses are quite different than consumer models and you can learn much more about them and other early Nikon space cameras by visiting his website.

We covered some fun topics this week, including:

1. How photography has changed over the years he has been shooting.

2. Seeing truth in photography.

3. Art shows.

4. The juxtaposition between inspiration and self-directed vision.

This week on Patreon, Timm and I talked about his Nikon camera collection - all cameras that have been to space as part of the NASA space program.
