I am a certified PRINCE2 Project Manager and have managed a wide range of international projects in Europe and Asia.

“Tim Plowden’s work is instinctive, visually stunning and informative – a lovely balance of style and substance and appeals in so many ways. The images celebrate the natural world emphasising how precious it is, while impressing on the viewer that whatever is happening in the image must be conserved and protected. They are a magnificent and impressive addition to Alamy’s image collection.”
Alexandra Bortkiewicz, Director of Photography

“First and foremost, I'm always happy with the quality of Tim's wildlife imagery and prose, both are exceptional.  The icing on the cake is Tim's organization in delivering the product. His organizational skills are excellent and he consistently delivers a complete package of well-organized materials in a professional manner - this makes an Editor's life so easy.

Tim is an exceptional wildlife photographer and documentary filmmaker as well as an accomplished writer. He is the consummate professional in the delivery of his product and services.  He offers a great balance of creative skills and business know-how to get the job done. Tim would be a great asset on any team.”
