The renowned fashion photographer Tim Walker was born in England in 1970 and his interest with photography started in a library in London, where the he worked on the Cecil Beaton archive as part of a year’s work experience before to going to university.
His work has since gone on to grace the pages of Vogue, where he consistently wows readers with his exaggerated scenery and dramatic characters, his images always have a magical and eccentric charm. Tim Walker shot his very first Vogue fashion tale at the age of 25 in 1995 and has proceeded to shot two front covers for British Vogue - Lily Cole on the July 2005 cover and Stella Tenant on the November 2005 issue.
Other than his successes in the Vogue empire Tim Talker has had many other accomplishments; including his first major show in 2008 which was held at the Design Museum in London and corresponded with the release of his first book, entitled Pictures.
He also received the Isabella Blow award for Fashion Creator at the British Fashion Awards in 2008 and 2009. Walker then added an Infinity award from The International Centre of Photography in New York for his work as a fashion photographer to his trophy collection.
Both the prestigious Victoria & Albert Museum and the esteemed National Portrait Gallery in London have photographs of Tim Walker in their permanent collections.
Here are some of my favourite Tim Walker shots, taken for the revered British Vogue magazine over the years.
