Tim Peare - Short Bio
After a successful career as a snowboard photographer, Tahoe resident Tim Peare became disenchanted with digital photography. “It made sense while I was a full-time professional and pushing out volume, but I started out with film and that’s where I fell in love with photography”. These days, you can find him out on the trails, capturing images of nature or in a wood shop building custom furniture.
About the Image
“Last Light” was captured high along the Tahoe Rim Trail on Tahoe’s eastern ridge and looks west across Lake Tahoe and the setting sun. This image represents the moment when all the elements of nature sing in a chorus, a natural symphony of light, before the giving way to the night.
“I remember this moment well, I was in complete solitude, a slight breeze in the air, the sun feeling warm on my skin, my hand on the cable release and click. I shot one roll of film, which is 4 shots on this panoramic camera. The sun faded and the temperature dropped as I packed up my gear. It was a long hike through the dark. I was left with my thoughts wash over my mind, reflecting and hoping that the image would be as beautiful as what I had witnessed. That’s the thing with film, you don’t know if you’ve got it until it’s developed and that’s okay. You were there, present in the moment, not fussing over the back of a screen...you were there.”
