Ateliervecteur Intermede-photo architecture entreprise Nantes-Tim Fox

Atelier Vecteur, the Intermède project

I was delighted to have been commissioned again by the collective of architect designers Ateliervecteur to photograph their new creation Intermède in Nantes, following on from the success of their Oscillation project back in 2016. Like that previous installation, this architectural project skillfully combines both a practical function as well as offering an artistic response to the surrounding environment.

In praise of verticality

I’ve always approached photography as the art of capturing reality in a way that is not instinctively obvious to the naked eye. This is one of the fundamental reasons I’ve often been drawn to the vertical format. Framing a picture within the upright dimensions of a 35mm camera, is a compositional choice which creates, by its nature, an alternate perspective.

Alsim flight simulators

It was a real privilege being asked back by Alsim to photograph their new AL172 MK II flight simulator and update their stock of library images ( commercial department, research & development, maintenance, production etc) for their new communication needs.

Exhibition in Trentemoult

I'm delighted to be taking part in the seventh edition of the celebrated cultural event & art festival- le Parcours des Créateurs-held in the picturesque former fishing village of Trentemoult, situated on the south bank of the Loire river opposite Nantes. I'll be exhibiting a selection of large format, colourful and graphic Street photos, taken in London, Rome, Nantes and other urban environments, from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th June.

A Small Voice travels far

Maybe it’s because we share monosyllabic names , or something to do with the fact that we were both trying to market the idea of documentary wedding photography back in the 1990’s ....that I have long felt that Ben Smith is in some way a kindred spirit.

Backstage at the Festival Interceltique

Summer is the season for big music festivals in France and they don’t come any bigger than the Festival Interceltique in Lorient, Brittany, approaching it’s 50th edition and attracting three quarters of a million Celtic music enthusiasts over ten days at the beginning of every August.I had the pleasure of attending for the first time a few weeks ago on a commission for Blackmagic Design, one of the world’s leading innovators and manufacturers of creative video technology.

Montessori Paris

With the new school year just around the corner, delighted to have been part of the team, along with Alcali Design and 7h47 web development, involved in the creation of the new visual communication campaign for the Montessori School in Paris, now known as atMontessori.

Annual Convention of French Notaries in Cannes

Now celebrating its 114th edition – “le Congrès des Notaires de France”- this institution of French civic, legal and political life, is an event I have now covered for the last four years. This year, there was a particular enticement, as the Convention was being held in Cannes. It was taking place in the Palais des Festivals, following on just one week after the internationally renowned film festival.

Rennes School of Business

Being bilingual and also a part-time teacher myself, I felt particularly well-suited, when commissioned to carry out a 2 day reportage shoot at the international Rennes School of Business, in spring of this year.

Inauguration ceremony for Floatgen project

Today saw the official inauguration in the port of Saint Nazaire, of Floatgen , the first deep-water offshore wind turbine destined for the French seas. This innovative and complex project has been developed by three major partners : Idéol, Bouygues and the Ecole Centrale de Nantes.

Oscillation – architectural art installation

As part of the annual summer public art installation and cultural festival known as the “Voyage à Nantes”, I had the pleasure of being commissioned to photograph the Oscillation project, situated in the up and coming thriving area known as the “ Quartier de la Création”, or if you wish, the Creative Quarter.
