Our Guest Speaker for Topshot 2018 – Timothy Poulton

Profile

Timothy Poulton is an inspired landscape photographer from Sydney, Australia, with a big passion for the outdoors. His photographic heart beats for hunting down the very best light from the very best location. More often than not, this takes him up mountains before the break of dawn, or down a ski slope on my jacket-come-sled after the last vestiges of sunset are fading away. He is an adrenaline junkie for that moment where the sky is ablaze with the most magnificent colors and shapes, it is humbling knowing there is a force bigger than all of us combined. He always feel privileged to be alive, in good health and witnessing earth’s orchestra reaching the crescendo coupled with a light show like no other. The earth is jam-packed with experiences for humans, but very few left that are unadulterated by modern technology which seeks a permanent place within it all.
