He was awarded a BAFTA for cinematography, and has been nominated for two BAFTA’s as well as two EMMY’s for cinematography. Six films that Tim photographed have won BAFTA’s and three films have been nominated for Emmy’s. Tim is a voting member of BAFTA in the UK and the Television Academy in the USA.
In 2018 the feature film Three Identical Strangers won an award at Sundance and was nominated for a BAFTA. In 2019 Tim had two theatrical features: Armstrong a biopic on Neil Armstrong and the film Serengeti Rules premier at cinemas in North America. He had a BBC/PBS 90 minute drama film 8 Days: To The Moon and Back premier on TV in the UK and US.
In 2020 he has the documentary film The Great Green Wall, an environmental music documentary produced by Fernando Meirelles (Two Pope’s, Constant Gardner, City of Gods) premiering in Paris and Billie a feature on singer/songwriter Billie Holiday having a US premier and the true crime documentary feature The Phantom having a US premier. He also has a 3 part Netflix Original Series “Fear City” and a single Netflix Original Documentary film “Unsolved Sport” on Netflix.
The experiences of growing up in Zimbabwe influenced his artistic talents. Perhaps the clear contrasting light of the high veldt helped shape his mastery of light.  Certainly his creative vision has been influenced by the African juxtaposition of man in nature, where beauty and harsh extremes vie for attention. It is a theme he seeks to explore in Coiba Island: A Life Sentence.
