MAN London Magazine, Launch Edition interview with Tim Wallace

banner man

Today saw the launch of the ‘MAN London Magazine’ with a feature interview on the work of AmbientLife and its founder and creator, Commercial Photographer Tim Wallace. Tim speaks to MAN London and talks about some of his work over the recent years and his passion for what he creates for his clients.

Industrial light and magic

Aston Martin is the manufacturer all men admire, a fascination that started in childhood watching 007 films with your father. With their sweeping lines and menacing aura, Aston Martins speak the language of luxury, but few reveal the soul of these cars like Tim Wallace, Britain’s full-throttle motoring photographer.

Tim Wallace is the world’s most renowned and pre- eminent Aston Martin photographer.
He has been shooting Aston Martins for over eight years, and in that time has worked with some of the world’s most iconic and rare cars, from the £1m One-77 to the classic Le Mans DBR2 of the Fifties and infamous DB5 of James Bond fame.
“For me it’s more than just capturing the car, it’s about capturing its soul, how it makes me feel when I first see that specific model,” Wallace states. “Each car is very different and has its own personality. My challenge is to create the image that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up when you look at it. That’s my gift and my passion. Photography for me is not a career, it’s an obsession. Being out there shooting is where exciting things can happen.”

Wallace has even driven over 460 of these luxury beasts. You could say that he is a man who knows his cars, but most of all, through his work, it’s clear that he is a man who has a passion for his craft. “Much of my work is dramatic; clients
commission me based on that style. I’m often told that my work is like ‘art’ and personally, I take that as a compliment. Photography is about light and imagination. The key is combining the two to create something memorable.”
