Ron Timehin is a young photographer from Bromley in the south side of London. As a music student and young trumpeter, he traveled the world extensively but could never remember the places he visited until he started shooting with his phone. As his skills and passion for photography grew, so did his Instagram followers, ultimately giving him the confidence to pursue a career in photography. Known for his moody, atmospheric architecture and travel photography, Ron’s work leaves a lasting impression through his distinctive storytelling and visual style.
His images often devoid of people, Ron is known to rise at 4 a.m. to hunt the perfect moment of solitude, light, and fog. With a nod to his musical background, Ron compares his photos to jazz compositions, describing them as "sad yet beautiful.” In addition to his personal work, Ron shoots professional campaigns, hosts workshops and provides social media consultancy for businesses.
“To me photography is a creative outlet and a way of documenting the life I see around me – basically a visual diary. Ultimately, I would love to be remembered as someone who didn’t create art for trends, but to pioneer change.”
Ron’s book London Fog, part of Trope's Emerging Photographers series, is a compilation of his moody and atmospheric London images. His work is also featured in the award-winning Trope London, the second volume in the Trope City Editions series.
