There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough—there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph.

My name is Tim Malek.  Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself.  I am a photographer currently living in Denison, Texas.  

Outwardly, I am a very logical and analytical personality.  However, inwardly I am very different, as each of us are.  Our conscious understanding of ourselves paints a very one sided impression we present to the world.  Not that this persona is false per say, but it is only the tip of the iceberg.  Within our shadows we hide our deep passion and desire which challenges us to step outside of our comfort zones.  Fear of this unknown is our driving force.  Fear and passion are two sides of the same coin. 

For me, my passion is to explore emotions and feelings.  As scary as it is for me, this is when I feel the most alive.  My photographic work is an expression of my desire to delve into the depths of truth, to bring out real emotions.  Whether it is portraiture, documentary work, or landscapes, experiencing this connection with the subject is paramount to my vision.

While I am a solitary individual by nature, I am fascinated by the people around me.  I cannot help but observe life from as many perspectives as possible.  This contributes to my obsession for documentary work.  You will see that most of my photography is processed in black and white.  My simplified explanation for this is that I find that color oftentimes distracts and competes with the subject.  Considering that emotion is really my focus within the image, black and white lends toward the photographic expression I creating.

I invite you to check out my work here on this site along with visiting my social media platforms.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or inquiries that you may have.  I enjoy hearing from everyone.  Please enjoy your yourself.
