With a degree from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Tim started in photojournalism, and worked as a newspaper and sports photographer in Cooperstown, NY before starting Camera Famosa. Tim has 15 years of professional photography experience, and he has developed into a creative and versatile photographer. His unique attention to detail and his exceptional eye are reflected in the warmth and sincerity in his photographs. Tim edits all of the photographs from Camera Famosa. On a day to day basis, Tim can most often be found at his desk working on a recent photo shoot, or e-mailing or talking with clients. If he's not at his desk, you might find him taking a quick break in the garden or walking our dog, Mabel.
What does Tim love most about photography? As Tim told Allison the first time he met her, he feels lucky to have found a career that he can feel passionate about. Tim is a quiet fellow, but his observational and photographic skills allows him to capture the essence of a moment.
Allison, his wife, helped Tim to start Camera Famosa Photography in 2009. She acts as a second photographer at weddings and helps to coordinate the day. She also comes along as a second photographer during portrait sessions, and assists with posing. As she is often told, she makes brides and grooms feel really comfortable on their wedding day because she is professional, helpful, and just so darn organized! She also works behind the scenes at Camera Famosa. She is the main designer of our website and creates all of our blog posts and updates on social media.
What does Allison love most about photography? Allison has a background in art and history, and she is especially fascinated with social history. Wedding and portrait photography provide the opportunity to work with all kinds of people, and witness all kinds of unique cultures. She loves the distinct and wonderful, and seeks out the details that make each event, day or moment unique.OUR BUSINESS
We provide a blend of fine art, traditional, and documentary photography. We edit our photos in a classic style that showcase natural light, color, and you!
Our 500 square foot studio is located in Schuylerville, NY, just minutes from the center of Saratoga, and 18 steps from our house. We're also willing to travel far and wide to meet your needs. While we most often shoot locally in Saratoga Springs, Albany, or Lake George, we've also shot on location in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Central NY. Although we're mainly available by appointment, we're often around the house, garden or studio. Feel free to give us a call to set up a meeting.
Camera Famosa is committed to sustainability. We have a large garden that provides much of our produce, a few beehives, and a small flock of chickens that roam our land. Allison recently wrote a book titled Companion Planting for the Kitchen Gardener, and Tim provided the photography.

My husband and I recently got married and it took us very little time to decide on a photographer. I had seen previous work by Camera Famosa and knew that they had to be the ones photographing our special day. Tim and Allison of Camera Famosa have created such a fabulous business. The pictures we received were breathtaking and arrived so much faster than I had ever anticipated. Tim and Allison make you feel so comfortable and will help guide you to ensure your pictures turn out beautiful. We would strongly recommend Camera Famosa to everyone!Sent on 02/10/2016

Amazing to work with and amazing photo's!Sent on 02/01/2016
I am a wedding harpist. I met Tim at a bridal show in Saratoga Springs, NY. The first thing I noticed was how stunningly gorgeous all his photographs were. But, secondly, was his polite and professional attitude. He volunteered to take some pictures of me playing harp at my booth, and the results were absolutely lovely. You cannot go wrong hiring Camera Famosa to take the photos for your wedding.
Tim is a great Photographer. He is easy to work with and has a great way of making any couple relaxe and enjoy their day. He has my full endorsement.
Great photographer, love having him come to National Museum of Dance.
