All Eyes On: One Day in the Life Of… photographer Tim Hailand

by Accidental Bear

I know gobs of talented people oozing with with creativity and ideas ( most of them tortured and some kind of brilliant mania). The problem I see is that this monster needs to be channeled in order for success ( Yes, the idea of success can be debated for a life time) The most genius artist I know have never had a show but have a basement full of master pieces. If done by a business minded human, they would be “rich” and famous from their torture represented on a canvass or by sculpture.

Photographer Tim Hailand has been able to conquer this artistic monster in him and reaps its  rewards. You can see it in his amazing photographs.
