Tim Cuff has been a photographer since his teens. A photography degree (specialising in documentary) was followed by 20 years of publications in the UK national newspapers and magazines, with regular commissioned work coming from the Sunday Times and the BBC.
Since moving to the top of New Zealand's South Island in 2006, he has established a reputation as the region's foremost freelance news and feature photographer. In 2011 he won the Photostory category at New Zealand Geographic's prestigious Photographer of the Year awards, with a photo-essay on a mass whale stranding event. In 2012 he was again a finalist in the competition. He's currently short-listed in the 2013 Canon Media Awards for another photo-essay on the devastating floods that struck the Nelson region in December 2011.
Tim's pictures appear in a broad variety of publications including the NZ Herald, North & South, NZ Geographic, NZ Listener, Dish, Woman's Day, Woman's Weekly, NZ Farmers Weekly and the regional Wild Tomato magazine, for which he also writes. Corporate clients include Nelson City Council, Consumer New Zealand, Sealord, the Cawthron Institute and the Australian consumer organisation Choice.
News videos for the NZ Herald and information videos for Nelson City Council are regularly commissioned - see the Video web page for links to these.
