Tim Konrad's love of photography began when, as a child, he was given a Kodak Brownie camera. Although most of the images he captured with that camera haven't survived, his enthusiasm for the medium was a key factor in his decision, in 1980, to follow his passion and pursue photography as a career choice. The career choice, unfortunately, didn't survive the rigors of maintaining a business. But then, how many artistic types fare well with spreadsheets and deadlines?
Although his first love is landscape photography, Tim was also drawn to photographing people, drawing inspiration from the candid shooting style of Henri Cartier-Bresson. This passion led him to pursue concert photography. Today, he is perhaps better known for his work as a staff photographer for the Strawberry Music Festivals, which he has documented since their inception in 1982. In addition to Strawberry, Tim has also documented nearly all of the Kate Wolf Music Festivals and Redwood Rambles to date.
