Tim Bell was born in Manhattan, raised nearby and after a few adventures in Washington, DC and many other parts of the world, came back to complete both a BA and Masters degree in Architecture at Columbia University. He continues to live in Manhattan.


Tim formally trained as a photographer but by and large is self-taught owing in part to a life-long study of composition, lighting and abstraction and further enhanced by his training as an architect.


As a professional for over 20 years now he has shot for numerous magazines, such as Architectural Digest, the New York Times, Interior Design, Elle D├ęcor, House Beautiful, This Old House, Met Home, NY Spaces, Business Week, Fortune, Fast Company, Forbes, Time, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post. Advertising clients include Knoll, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Starwood Hotels among others.
