If I have to be completely honest about how "Why?" got started, it was out of frustration. I was tired of meeting photographers who knew nothing about the artists who have helped build our industry. Not only did they not know the legends who have since passed on, but they were clueless about contemporary photographers making a difference today. Well, that was 43 artists ago, and the concept is still going strong!
We look at thousands of images every week, but rarely hear the backstories behind them. Through the stories and the passion of the photographers themselves there have been some remarkable lessons shared. Plus, in the process of sharing you're meeting some of the most respected artists in imaging today!
It's time for you to meet Tim Walden. Tim is a all about passion for the craft and one look at his work and you'll know he NEVER compromises on the quality of an image. I was able to sit in on one of Tim and Beverly's classes at Marathon's MAP Getaway summer before last and something they talked about really hit home. They're not selling photography but creating an experience and the result is a family heirloom!

Stay tuned to "Why?" because next week you're going to pick up another backstory, thanks to the other half of the family, Beverly!
