About Timothy Forbes Photography

Tim Forbes, Photographer Timothy Forbes Photography is dedicated to harvesting moments, chasing the camera's ability to pluck a framed instant from the everyday and transform it into something memorable that transcends a single instance in time.

An award-winning photographer who has been featured in several local and national publications, I bring a love of international travel, a fascination with faces, and a passion for live music to my work behind the lens. As a returned Peace Corps Volunteer, I can describe the taste of kumys, a Central Asian drink made from fermented mare’s milk. I have a soft spot for nonprofits that prompts me to give absurd discounts to social do-gooders contracting my services. I find myself genetically predisposed to stumbling into local jazz clubs and hopes my camera gives a socially-acceptable excuse for doing so exceedingly often. And I am a happy contributor to Live Anacostia.

Peek at the travel, portrait and jazz galleries. Contact me, if you'd like to schedule a photo shoot or event. Purchase prints, if something moves you. And help this little digital darkroom grow by following my on Facebook or Twitter and sharing the site with others.

Thanks for your time spent here!
