It should come as no surprise that I’m very influenced by the work of other portrait photographers.
None more than Tim Griffith.
If you’re going to tell me that he’s an architectural photographer, let me stop you right there. While that’s accurate, I see Tim’s work as magnificent portraiture of architecture.
His processes and procedures are as organic and deliberate as any other portraitist, including myself.
In fact, we share a common language about how our “subjects” are portrayed, though I sometimes need a translation hint or two for his Australian version of English.
We also share a mutual love of travel, food, and coffee which we get to discuss in depth when our paths cross as they did recently in the Ferry Terminal in San Francisco.
