I’M TIANA TIMMERBERG, A SOPHOMORE IN MEDIA STUDIES AND PRODUCTION AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY. I GREW UP IN INDIANAPOLIS BUT MOVED TO PHILLY FOR SCHOOL IN PURSUIT OF NEW OPPORTUNITIES (AND BETTER VEGAN CHEESESTEAKS).

 

I've been writing concert reviews/previews and album reviews since about 4 years ago when I first started my website. It started off as a hobby & I wasn't entirely sure what I was doing, but now it's a huge part of my life. On my original website, which looked vastly different from this, I also included text and video interviews. I slowly fell away from doing those as photography took the forefront. 

I started becoming interested in photography after I got a point-and-shoot camera for Christmas when I was about 13 years old. I would take it with me everywhere I went, from concerts to family vacations. It didn’t take too long for me to figure out that this little camera was nothing compared to what other photographers were using. About two years ago, I upgraded to my current DSLR and I still question how I survived so long without it. Since then, I’ve been teaching myself how to use the camera and how to edit pictures, trying to take my photography to the “next level”. I'm currently the photography intern at Philly radio station WXPN.

I shoot everything from buildings to plants to people, but concert photography is by far my favorite and the most rewarding. Concert shots tend to be incredibly dynamic and emotional, telling a story about both the music and the artist themselves. I absolutely love photos that tell stories & I hope mine have achieved that affect. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
