Featured, Things I Hope My Kids Will Read One Day

The Personal Side of Tim Wallace

September 22, 2017

I wasn’t expecting to be doing an interview series, it wasn’t on my radar (or I doubt anyone else’s in the building) but a few month’s ago Mike Kubeisy called my husband and said he thought we ought to start an interview series that focused more on the photographer’s and instructor’s personal side but the surprise suggestion he threw in at the end of the conversation was that he thought I should be the one to do it. I think my husband said something along the lines of, “There’s no way she’ll say yes.” Hahaha! My husband’s response made total sense because it did take him five years to get me to record an iPhone class, but for some reason, the thought of just sitting with someone and listening to them tell their stories hit me just right at just the right time, and I said, “Yes.” We picked my husband up off the floor, and “The Personal Side” series was off and running.

Yesterday we released The Personal Side of Tim Wallace and if there is any way you can go and watch this interview I ask that you do just that. During Tim’s interview I had to remind myself to breathe. His story is beautiful, inspiring, humbling and in the end, quite obvious that Tim is Batman. (I’m only half kidding.) It was my great pleasure and honor to be there and to be a part of this interview. I am grateful for how much he shared with all of us. Thank you, Tim. (aka, Batman)

    Hi Kalebra,
    You were most welcome. It was not the sort of interview that I am used to giving but it felt really good to talk and be honest and open about what makes me I guess what I am today as a person. I sincerely hope that all this that watch will take their own little piece away and that it shows a small insight into myself not only as a photographer but as a person.
    Thank you!

      Such an honor, Tim and I can’t imagine that there’s not something for just about everyone to walk away with. Thank you again.

    Hello, Kalebra,

    A few years ago at PSW I commented to you as to how good an interviewer Ibarionex (The Candid Frame) is. Your reply was, “That’s because he really listens to the answers people give as opposed to other interviewers who are busy preparing their next question.”

    You listened, too. You made the interview into a conversation with a friend that I felt privileged to overhear. Great job.

      That’s just about the kindest thing you could have said to me. Thank you, Steve, I truly appreciate it.
