Tim Cooper is a photographer who loves teaching. He has shown his creative side in photography and teaching, the two things he has been passionate about for more than two decades.
Originally from New Jersey, Tim worked as an electrician for several years before moving to Montana to discover his love of photography. Finally, his creative outlet!
Before long he was teaching for his Alma Mater, Rocky Mountain School of Photography. It soon became apparent that he also loves to teach. He found that sharing his knowledge, watching people grow, and witnessing their excitement as they exercised their creative side was truly satisfying.
Tim is also the author of the training videos Perfect Exposure for Digital Photography, Perfect Composition, Magic Light, and DSLR Camera Basics. His e-Books include The Realistic HDR Image and The Magic of Light Painting. He was graciously asked by my friend Gabriel Biderman to add a couple of chapters to his Night Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots, and my latest solo book is HDR Photography: from Snapshots to Great Shots.
Above all, though, Tim loves being out in the field. The inevitable camaraderie that develops during workshops is pure pleasure. And, he can’t imagine a better way to spend time than enjoying the beauty of our natural world, witnessing the magic of the night sky, and sharing my love of photography.
