Timothy Shonnard is a San Francisco based photographer.
He has developed his love of photography and performance into a successful career of more than 30 years. He began shooting professionally straight out of college in Phoenix. He worked as a photojournalist for music publications and a promotional photographer for major record lebels. Timothy’s East Coast verve, swift talent and knack for entertaining even the entertainers gained him access to top ‘70s stars including Heart, Frank Zappa, Styx, Ted Nugent and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
He has headed his current commercial photography group since the 90’s. He is known for photography with a natural, big-screen feel, whether shooting the action or setting a scene. He achieves this effect by working with movie lighting and crews, as well as professional actors and “real people” for models. His directing style is loose, spontaneous and energetic yet always focused on client objectives. Timothy’s client list spans from high-end housing developers to international software corporations to Fortune 500 companies.
