Tim Klein is a photographer and director who captures and creates joyful moments of connection in stills and motion.
With a background in photojournalism, he is a true master at bringing out authentic feelings and actions within a produced setting. Based in the Midwest, he is called on regularly to work with award winning publications and a wide variety of brands including Apple, Discovery Channel, Forbes, Presence Health, The New Yorker, Smithsonian Magazine, Yamaha and Zipcar.
“My photography is inspired by people, places and things. I was trained as a photojournalist so I find inspiration everywhere — from my travels abroad to my own backyard. My biggest source of inspiration is light, especially the way it can dramatically change a scene. I love the glow of morning light through fog, the graphic shadows of noon light, the light of an overcast day, and the dramatic rose-colored light at sunset.
