Tim Wolcott

Professional landscape photographer Timothy Wolcott’s fine art imagery has an ethereal quality rendered with exquisite technical precision. Hailing from a family of photography pioneers, he began printing images as a six-year-old in his father’s darkroom. Under the tutelage of George Philips, a colleague of Ansel Adams, Wolcott worked to master the nuances of fine art black and white printing. Later, he helped pioneer pigment printing to produce realistic saturation and tonal qualities.

Recently he’s developed a pigment proprietary pigment printing process that permits prints to be exhibited without the use of glass or plexi-glass and enables a longer-lasting print. Twice named by the Smithsonian as the “World’s Best Landscape Photographer,” Wolcott’s work can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide. He is a long-time Phase One camera shooter who marries a love of precision gear with the desire to create a better and more precise way of printing fine art images.

“I borrow from the masters before me and with the new printing technologies I’ve achieved; I am keeping the traditions alive and creating my own unique style of art.”

Duman is patient, ever curious and adventurous. His passion is evident in every composition and with each new environment, he challenges himself to be fully immersed in every location, learning to navigate unfamiliar cultures and different ways of life so he can experience each new place on his own terms. His artistic style reflects his appreciation for the natural world. His photos are clean, powerful and evocative. They encourage the viewer to look beyond what is right in front of them to the scale and breadth of what surrounds us. While Duman’s portfolio covers a wide range of subjects and environments, he is most passionate about aerial photography. He has logged many hours abroad in planes and helicopters, creating a variety of unique fine art images shot from above.
