Biography

Tim Rand is a photographer who specialises in nightlife and club photography. He originally took it up as a hobby in 2009 working for renowned nightlife website, Tilllate.com. Since then however, he has also moved on to weddings, parties and portraits.

Towards the end of 2009, Tim decided to take the next step by purchasing an SLR camera of his own - a decision he's never regretted. He's come a long way since those initial days, and takes a lot of care in all his editing and his style.

When you see Tim on a night out taking photos, you see a guy enjoying himself to the fullest, having a good time with all the punters. This is not just a job to Tim, it's an opportunity to interact, and he loves every minute of it! To date he's covered venues from all over the country and beyond, taking photos for some of the world's biggest headliners!
