No stranger to Tasmania, Tim was was ‘born and bred’ here, but left the state when he was young. His Dad, Paul, used to work at the ABC in Hobart (Exec Producer of our local 7:30 Report Program) and his uncle is well-known Tasmanian media identity, Dave Noonan – so he’s got great pedigree!
Tim's an adventurous cinematographer and loves traveling to challenging environments to film not only amazing locations, but also chronicle his experiences as he endures the rituals and diversity of many cultures.
After studying film at Griffith Uni in Queensland Tim worked for Chanel 9 and then moved to the 7 Network to work as a cinematographer/reporter on the “Sunday Night" program.
However Tim is possibly best known for two adventure docu-series he’s made in recent years. In the first, "Boy to Man", Tim travelled the globe for a couple of years, immersing himself in native cultures and experiencing the most extreme and dangerous coming-of-age rituals.
In recent times Tim teamed up with his fiancé, PJ, to co-produced and shoot another original docu-series for Netflix called "Extreme Engagement." The show launched globally last year.

Tim will bring some of his current kit along and to show how he works with a range of cameras to produce these high-end, series that are stunning, yet shot ‘on the fly’.
He will screen excerpts from his work with Sunday Night, Boy to Man and Extreme Engagement and give us the back story about how they were shot and what life is like shooting is some stunning but extremely remote and challenging locations.
