I hope that this will lead me to work with many different wonderful agencies, brands and new photographers. Please get in touch if you need any help with creating visual content, production, contracts, budgets or generating new business.

Ken Grier : Creative Director at The Macallan :I worked wth Tim Paton for the last three years on the Magnum Macallan MOP7 project. He negotiated and co-ordinated the whole project from start to finish. I have to say he was great to work with, creative, efficient and helpful at every turn. There were tricky moments during the three years as we had 6 photographers visiting a building site but he remained calm and charming and made the whole experience a wonderful one. Delivery was fantastic. I would wholeheartedly recommend and endorse Tim

Fabio Ruffet : Regional Brand Director  Bacadi Europe: Great partner. always calm, but also always totally in control of the situation. I has been a pleasure to partner with Tim and his team at Magnum.
