The advent of the digital age ended Nicholas Tinkl's career as a photographic technician and entirely changed his approach to photography. He no longer required a darkroom and quickly adopted computer and digital output to produce his eye-catching work.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
I have been taking photographs off and on for about 30 years I spent a year at Sheridan College in the photo program and left to pursue a living in photography.
I worked in a small photo store in Toronto where I learned about films, developers, read the magazines on the shelf and worked in the darkroom in the basement.
Then I worked as an assistant to several professional photographers, as well as working as a film technician at BGM and The Prolab.
The advent of the digital age ended my technician career; I moved to the country and started a family. It also changed my approach to photography. I no longer have a darkroom and have adopted computer and digital output to produce my work.
I have a small business photographing work for local artists as well as pursuing my own work and making a living.
A commission I shot of my dog wearing a pearl necklace for a local pet jeweller ended up on a billboard in Times Square and Los Vegas.
