Papeete, French Polynesia
Born in Sydney in 1968, Tim McKenna is a leading figure in action sport photography. He has inspired his generation by revealing the sheer beauty of the elements through some of the most spectacular scenes and performances.
Tim, a nomad at heart, has been travelling the globe for the last 20 years, creating countless covers and stories for over 40 specialised sport publications, mainstream magazines or book collections.
With the rise of the riding sports phenomenon, Tim became one of the first crossover photographers, excelling in many different areas, from all the different ocean water sports to pioneering new heli-snowboard and ski destinations such as the Caucasus, Ecuador, Uzbekistan or Mongolia, to the inland tracks or deserts for motocross shoots.
He has also produced many catalogues and advertising campaigns for prestigious names such as Michel Herbelin, Le Meridien, Intercontinental Hotels, Algothermes, Oxbow, Air Tahiti Nui or American Express. His best images are to be found in a fine art poster collection and his website is visited by thousands daily.
He still tours the world, but is now based with his wife and son on the Island of Tahiti striving to capture the magic of the Polynesian islands and people.
