Photographer of the month
ehouse would be nothing without the talented photographers who travel the country each and every day capturing everything from country estates to cosy cottages. Whilst the office team work behind the scenes, the photographers are on the front line, and since we were founded in 2000 they have upheld our ‘photography first’ ethos. We pride ourselves on working with such creative and experienced people.
This month we’re catching up with Tim, who works in and around the South West. Here is what he has to say about a day in the life of an ehouse photographer…
Q: How long have you been a photographer?
I started out as an apprentice photographer to the LEGN group of newspapers in the late 70’s and I was initially influenced by Sir Don McCullin, Tim Page, and photographers working in conflict around the world.
Q: Why did you want to become a photographer?
I have always been a maverick so photography along with other art forms allows me to illustrate what is in my head at any one time. I have plans to scan my 1980/90’s negatives for at least one book of my experiences struggling as a journeyman snapper. It’s not all glamour!
Q: What is a typical day like for you working at ehouse?
It keeps me grounded working with ehouse! I enjoy meeting an interesting cross section of people and to be perfectly honest I get to see some amazing properties and locations, which in turn gives me ideas for my own home (a seventeenth century barn, full of an eclectic mixture of bits and bobs!).
Q: What do you enjoy most about being a photographer?
Freedom, freedom, freedom… with the occasional sleepless night and long day on the road! I don’t sit still for long!
