Introduction: Being a professional photographer means something to me. I am a think-on-my-feet creative with the experience to be the photographer for myriad photographic situations. I can shoot events, portraits, and even remain steadfast after shooting over 32,000 photos of runners in the New York Marathon. I’ve been a photographer for over 30 years, many of them as a news photojournalist, shooting sports, portraits, events, as well as being a college photojournalism instructor for ten years. I am flexible with my skills with a singular goal to see smiles of satisfaction from the people I photograph. I am available for any kind of photographic need, including on-location portraiture (families, graduate, corporate, sports, etc.), events (corporate, graduation parties, colleges, weddings, etc.), news, public relations, sports (leagues, portrait, action, teams), and product photography.

Our experience with Tim was amazing we booked him for our Engagement party he was very responsive and attentive to our needs. We booked him for our up coming wedding and reception in November.

Thank you, Candace. It was my honor to photograph your engagement party. I think the portrait area worked well, and the candid images were a nice touch. I’m truly happy you are happy with the work.

Wedding and Event Photography

Tim captured our engagement party better than we ever could have hoped! He arrived at both of our locations at perfect times, explained everything he was going to do and heard what we were envisioning, and made everyone feel comfortable taking photos. Tim will always be top of mind whenever we’d like a photographer. We’re so happy to have amazing photos of us with our friends for a lifetime and had a great time getting to know him! Thanks so much, Tim!

That's great, Alexis! I'm glad you all like the images. I had a great time as well and I hope to be a photographer for you or your friends in the future. BTW, your review was great. I'm glad you wrote it the way you did as it reflects the type of event you had as well as the type of service I do. Thank you so much.

Photo Editing, Scanning and Restoration

I recently hired Tim Berger, Photopix, to restore a fifty four year old Military photo. He was able to repair and restore the group photo of the Marine Corps Unit I went to Vietnam with. He improved the definition and added clarity. His work was superb. His price was fair. I would use him again and highly recommend this professional Jim Hall USMC 1966 - 1969

Engagement Photography

My first experience on Thumbtack so didn't really know what to expect. Had a great time working with Tim on capturing candid engagement photos. I'm not local to the area and he recommended some beautiful locations for me which really helped. Great quality of work and very easy to work with. Will definitely work with again and 5/5 would recommend.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The prices you see are what I believe is fair compensation for a photographer who has the skills. The photographic categories you see in my profile, such as weddings and events, portraits, corporate, real estate, etc. are all strengths of mine and I assure you that hiring me will yield results that you will truly appreciate. However, if there is a quote you see from me that exceeds your expectations, I encourage you to reach out to me to discuss options. My phone number, that I include in my initial response, is my cell phone and you can call or text me.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Formally, my training in photography started when I was a pre-teen when I sold enough boxes of chocolates to earn a point-and-shoot camera, my first ever camera. I’ve been involved with photography ever since, including photojournalism courses in college that lead me to my first job as a staff photographer for a newspaper. That started a career in photojournalism that lasted thirty years until the pandemic struck and closed the newspaper I worked at last. Currently, I teach photojournalism at a community college, and have started this freelance business on Thumbtack to share my robust experience with clients.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I first started selling my work in high school by taking advantage of enthusiastic students at a state basketball tournament by selling photomasks of the head coach for $1 each. From there, I’ve worked with event photo companies, portrait companies, commercial photographers, and as you have already read, newspapers. I’ve been published in a few magazines, like Newsweek, but my work has predominantly been published in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, Pasadena Star-News, Los Angeles Times, Glendale News Press, Burbank Leader, and La Cañada Valley Sun.
