About Tim Kainu

About Tim Kainu

I run this website all by myself and I do it for fun, so please take everything I say as if it were a grain of salt.

I’m not interested in making tons of money or to brag about how many images I’ve had in major magazines (none), how many big name celebrities I did photo shoots with (none), or how many awards I won (also none.) On second thought, making tons of money sounds awesome, so I take that part back.

Why Visit This Website at All?

Well for starters, there will be a lot of photography activities you can participate in, such as monthly contests, photo assignments, photo critique sessions and giveaways,  and more such as:

And that’s just a start.

This websites main goal is to provide photographers with high-quality tips and info in an organized, easy to read fashion by keeping things simple.

TimKainu.com is a personal blog of mine at heart, so the sites structure will be like that of a personal blog, with me having the final say over what gets published. But don’t worry, I only post great content with no crap or fillers in-between.

Now a Little About Me and My Style

Check out  my photography gear  page to see what I currently use to make my photos.

Currently living in the little town of Berkley, Michigan, I am 55% photographer, 35% digital artist, 15% graphic designer, and 0% mathematician. I would classify myself as an unconventional, non-traditional photographer where digital is my medium of choice. I like to create images that would be impossible to create without the use of digital manipulation. Most of my photographs are extensively edited, and whether it be a montage of multiple photos or blended exposures, I make sure I use whatever tools I have at my disposal to create a unique, signature style. Spending time behind the computer screen editing photos is what I do. That’s where all the magic happens, and that’s when the true image in my mind gets created. Sometimes that can be a scary thing… and sometimes it can be a good thing About Tim Kainu
