Tim Copsey (Fan Feature)

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hello, my name is Tim Copsey I am a British photographer who works in the genres of fashion, portraiture and performing arts. I am based just outside London where I frequently shoot. Given the choice I love to shoot monochrome but I am gradually warming to colour as well.

2. What are you working on right now?
I am preparing to shoot a fashion show in the Australian embassy and some editorial shoots around London for some designers that have flown in from the Pacific.

3. Do you have a podcast routine? What is it?
I am not organized enough for that! I listen to podcasts when I remember to. Nearly always when I am doing something else, so instead of listening to the radio I will put the fashion photography podcast on.

4. What are you most excited about right now?

The next time I am shooting. Every time I shoot I feel fully alive.

5. What was the most exciting photo shoot you’ve done so far? 
It is difficult to single out one shoot, but I think I would have to say at the moment, a mini shoot I had in Milan. It followed directly on from a fashion show I had shot. It involved some models that had just walked the runway and took place in the hotel where the show was. It was a short period of time but the models, clothes and setting was just right and I felt in my zone. Wonderful.

6. What’s your dream photo shoot? 
Front cover of British Vogue

7. Where do you see yourself in 3 years? 
Further along in my photography career, with more clients and prestigious publications. Hopefully I will have made even more friends and tried to help more fellow creatives along their journey too.

8. Do you have a favorite source of knowledge (website/YouTube channel/blog/app) you’d like to share with us? 
My favorite source of inspiration and pearls of wisdom from the real world of fashion photography is The Fashion Photography Podcast and I am not just saying that. Other than that I find the most useful thing other than shooting constantly that helps develop my eye is to read top publications such as Vogue. I also like to look at the work of master photographers and most frequently these are the all time greats as I am always excited to see photographs that have the “timeless” quality .

9. What’s your biggest struggle right now? 
In all honesty I need to develop my ability to connect with and attract more commercial clients. In this current age where “everybody is a photographer” it is important to improve commercial knowledge to attract sustainable work. There is a climate of clients wanting creatives to work for free and this is a challenge.
