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 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 Mentorships and private coaching. From concept to creation to completion, the knowledge the Waldens provide is top notch.


As people, they are approachable, sharing, caring individuals who want only the BEST for those they meet.

As innovators, they are constantly ahead of the curve, creating portraits that stand the test of time, taking your breath away.




As educators, Tim and Bev are excited to offer a new path of learning, combining online classes for a year (virtual) with hands-on training (face to face) through their ONE YEAR Mentorship plus Retreat option.


These are called our Mentorship plus Retreat. After a year-long course of study online, the members then come together to practice what was learned and meet their online buddies. Friendships are formed, connections are made, in-person chats with Tim and Bev are invaluable and seeing how the entire Walden operation runs creates an unforgettable time for you in your professional and personal career.


In addition, they offer a Mentorship option that does not include the Retreat called the Mentorship Study Along. It offers the exact education online minus the Retreat for those who can't get to the Walden facility in Lexington, Kentucky.


As alumni of any ONE YEAR Mentorships which laser focused on the black and white Relationship style of portraiture, NEW for 2018, Tim and Bev are offering a Color Study Mentorship, starting in April. Building on knowledge gained from the ONE YEAR Mentorship, this four-month Mentorship will expand the breath of your skills in portraiture. 


Now accepting registrations for all 2018-2019 Mentorship Journeys.
