A personal message from the founder, Darren Tilnak :
Welcome to Tilnak Photographic Fine Art & Education. I personally want to thank you for visiting our new site, tilnak.com. My work is built upon more than 30 years of experience in the photographic industry. As a master photographer, author, mentor, and judge, I am proud to be part of an ever changing, creative industry.
There are three distinct areas of services we provide at the highest level here:
Lifestyle Portraits: under this banner for over 25 years, this arm of the business has focused on fine art portraiture that captures the essence and spirit of families, couples, children, pets and motoring imagery; all shot in my unique black and white signature style. My passion for sharing my knowledge then led me to create our education arm, Mastering Photography. Here one can take a Masterclass, download my digital books or book an one-on-one session to hone in on your skills. And finally, Drone Portraits: this is the latest exciting addition to our suite of services. Now a licensed CASA pilot, Tilnak can offer your business anything from a video walkthrough of your business, corporate headshots or have your property photographed as an excellent wall art print. NEW to this catalogue is a series of Tilnak's Limited Edition Aerial Prints perfect for the home or your office.
I invite you to explore our website and discover the Tilnak experience. Find out why we're so different to every other studio.
I am not here to tell you what camera to buy or how to improve your holiday snaps either. No, I am here to take your photography quantum. Not just quantum but fast. 'Mastering Photography' was born about by clients that kept asking me for tips on how to improve their picture taking without all the fuss and confusion.
So over the next ten weeks, I am going to give you ten photographic tips that are going to fast track your photography and also give you greater confidence when it comes to handling your camera and its controls.
Established in 1991, Lifestyle Portraits has been the heart of Tilnak’s fine art portrait work. TIlnak has photographed thousands of people across the world, all of whom proudly hang his signed art work in their homes and always enjoy them years on.
Natural emotion is the driving force behind Darren’s imagery.
His images have won him numerous awards. Tilnak transforms ordinary life into extraordinary art.link
Beginning with switching off the ‘Auto’ on your camera and 'mastering your camera controls' through to creating images that will set you apart.
Tilnak will take you on a learning journey to help de-mystify the camera controls and explore the science and art of photography and what is needed to create the images you want to share with the world.
Darren's illustrious career has led him to numerous awards and recognitions in his industry, for that he is grateful. He's of the opinion that the greatest judge and barometer of his work is the satisfaction of his clients. He is proud of the breadth of acclaim that his dedication to his art and craft has brought him.
