Tim Tadder-Kara

Tim Tadder is an advertising photographer who does a lot with Photoshop. A lot of these images may not be completely original, but I think that sometimes that is okay, especially if you are working with a client (which, in this case he was). Tim does a lot of work with athletes and companies that support athletics such as Gatorade. What really drew me to some of the images he creates is his amazing ability with Photoshop. He does composite images where he combines an athlete's place of play with their work environment. He also does interesting compositions with the same idea but has each half of the person as a different side to their life. His images are also really nice because he uses studio lighting extremely well to create dramatic images of the athletes. The one really intriguing part of his images is that they look almost cartoonish and like something is off with them. It might just be how heavily photoshopped they are, but I just can't figure out what it is that makes them look that way (it would be interesting to learn about that!)
