Special Presentation by Tim Pile FIPF MPAGB EFIAP/p...

Have I Got Nudes For You a photographic talk by Tim Pile FIPF MPAGB EFIAP/p will take place at the Methodist Hall, Chapel Field Road, Norwich NR2 1SD on Tuesday 14th May at 7:30pm.  This is the last Special Presentation of the current Season and going by the outstanding  reviews after Tim has given this talk previously is not one to be missed...!

About the talk - The subject of this evening’s talk by Tim Pile is deliberately made clear to avoid anyone being surprised or upset. During the event however, we would be very surprised if anyone found anything at all offensive or in bad taste.

Tim will explain during his introduction to photography and his fairly rapid understanding that he needed more in his images than a standard landscape.  Looking at the work of other photographers and artists soon had him pondering how he might  combine his view of the world about us with his appreciation of the female form.  The resulting images showed a mastery of landscape photography with a strong understanding of how best to include ladies sans clothes, incorporating poses to complement their surroundings and having a very close eye on the use of natural light.

Tim will show how closely he works with his models and how the final images are very much a collaboration between photographer and model.

Tim’s approach to his photography is best explained in his own words:

“The female form is a beautiful thing, and I try to capture that beauty in my images, using man-made and natural environments. I generally prefer to take pictures that include models, rather than just pictures of models. I have no artistic background, and I feel that my eye for composition comes from having studied Mathematics. 

These images are not my images, every one of them is the result of a creative partnership with the model concerned. I freely acknowledge that the improvement in my photography is because of working with such creative individuals.

I live in Birmingham, which is near the centre of England, but look far and wide for locations to go with my models.

I have many photographic distinctions and awards, and while I am very proud of them in the end it’s the images that matter. I was very honoured to become a member of the London Salon of Photography.

A way of sharing my images with fellow photographers is through talks that I give to camera clubs, and any other interested organisations, the talks are entitled “Have I Got Nudes For You” and “Nudes Night” to ensure that anybody attending is in no doubt about the content of my images.

Many thanks to all the models for producing all these great images with me and bringing a little bit of beauty to the World. I enjoy immensely creating these images, and I hope I can brighten up your day by sharing my images with you”.
