Wallhangers Heritage Prints
Hello and welcome to Wallhangers Heritage Prints. My name is Tim Croton and I’m a Shropshire based published photographer and my main interest is in capturing our Industrial Heritage evoking a sense of atmosphere and to a degree nostalgia in both monochrome and colour. I was born in 1963 and as a child growing up in the UK during this period with all the social and economic changes taking place as well as living under the constant threat of the “Cold War” the reality was a far cry from being a memorable experience it has to be said! My interest in photography started when I was young and due to my mum owning a Kodak Instamatic which I found fascinating and at the same time with it’s optional flash cube somewhat intriguing. Many a shot was taken with this camera on holidays to Wales and family occasions. After secondary education I attended Shrewsbury College of Art on a two year foundation course and following on from this graduated at Lanchester (Coventry) Polytechnic in 1985 where I studied Graphic Communication. Photography featured prominently at both institutions back in the days of film and I spent far too long in the darkroom! Fast forwarding to the recent past, I pursued a career in the commercial print industry, firstly learning my trade as a magazine layout artist and then jumped ship to enter the frantic world of prepress print production. In the Autumn of 2015 I decided to focus (no pun intended!) on my photography and publishing my own work. I’m more than happy to take on commissions if the style of my work appeals to individuals or organisations via the contact page. Many thanks for taking a look! Cheers Tim
