About Tim Van Horn

Co-founder, Producer, Photographer

Tim’s dream is to create powerful and monumental photographs and photo documentaries. Growing up and traveling around Canada and the world in the Canadian military, Tim developed a sense of duty for his country and a craving for cultural experiences. It became obvious to him at an early age that his life calling was to document the world with a camera.

The subject matter Tim has chosen is the unlimited possibilities of the people and places of Canada. Carrying a camera daily in search of the story of modern-day Canadians in their landscape. Tim makes the ordinary, extraordinary.

By utilizing a number of communicative mediums ranging from the Internet, to fine-art photographic prints, large traveling exhibits and beautiful photography books, Tim provides Canadians with visual art that is rooted in cultural awareness and a much-needed unique point-of-view.
