Tim Pile of Smethwick Photographic Society must surely be one of the most successful photographers on the camera club circuit in Britain today. Since taking up serious photography in 2008 he has gained major distinctions from the Royal Photographic Society, the Royal Photographic Society of Ireland, the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain and the International Federation Of Photographic Art (FIAP), in addition to countless gold medals gained at national and international exhibitions and competitions. The vast majority of his work involves the female nude, and Tim is prepared to go to great lengths to get the right model in the right location, whether it is an abandoned cottage in Scotland, a stately home in Ireland, a glacier in Iceland, a sanatorium in Belgium, an office in Birmingham, Brimham Rocks in Yorkshire or one of countless other places. Tim presented a selection of his prints to the members of the Desborough And Rothwell Photographic Society on Friday 19th May, and it was obvious to anyone privileged to be there that the strength of Tim's images rely on shape, composition and light, a universal trio that surely applies to all successful art photography. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Tim for a really inspirational evening of world class photography.
