Tim Hixson first began photography whilst a student at Southern Illinois University. In 1969 he hitchhiked to California on Route 66 with an Instamatic camera and in 1970 began using plastic “Diana” cameras, completing his degree in Cinema and Photography in 1972.
After returning home to Australia he lived in Byron Bay then worked out of his studio in North Sydney shooting commercially and developing his personal photography. In 1998 he returned to plastic camera photography, producing the exhibition and book ‘BEACH’.
He has had many solo exhibitions and awards since then and continues to explore the ocean and beach culture using traditional and alternative photography.
