Tim Walden, along with his wife, Beverly, have been professional photographers and educators in the photography industry for over three decades. Their motto,
"Do less. Do it better than anyone else."
Years ago, the Waldens created one of the best known styles of black and white portraiture that is now recognized around the world. Named Relationships with the tagline "Images that Speak" for the stories their portraits told, it is still at the core of their active portrait studio and in great demand from their clientele.
The creation of the Relationship brand taught them the lessons that have become the base of their educational content they now offer through their annual Black & White Mentorships, the Walden 3-Year Study Course and their private coaching. The knowledge the Waldens provide is top notch.
-They are approachable, caring individuals who want only the BEST for those they meet.
-They are innovators, constantly ahead of the curve, creating portraits that stand the test of time, taking your breath away.
-They are photographers and educators, creating an environment to learn that is comfortable and warm.
-They are keepers of legacy for their clients as print artists.
We teach you how to tell important stories with your imagery.
A widow at a young age.
Her husband passed away at a young age. The necklace she wears around her neck is his wedding ring as a reminder of their time together. We determined to do this session as a fine art black and white portrait. Hand-printed pieces like this will last for several generations...her daughters will have this portrait as their legacy.
*We give you the tools to be a print artist so that you get the best from your lab. For the few who want to print their own work, we teach you how to be a print maker.
He inspires others.
The deadliest drunk driving accident in America, May of 1988, happened here in Kentucky and Harold was just a young man at the time. Twenty seven of his friends died that night.
A lot of thought went into this portrait. Because of the textures in his face, we selected the format of black and white as it holds a wider range of details and allowed us to kick up the lighting for a dramatic presentation. We darkened the background to allow him to project forward and dressed him in dark clothing for minimal distraction.
The tattoo on his arm is of the Phoenix, the mythical bird that arises from ashes to new life.
Adoption is love.
Darryl and his wife were foster parents for children with medical or emotional problems. When they met Becca, fostering turned to adopting. Along with Becca, they also adopted three other children who now have a forever home to thrive in.
Darryl is a body builder, so showing off his arms symbolized strength, security and safety and became a vital factor in this image.
Encircling his adopted daughter within his strong arms speaks of his LOVE.
"There are no unwanted children. Just unfound families."
