Tim Messick

I’m a photographer and graphic designer based in Davis, California, USA. I became fascinated with photography and photographers when I was a kid. I even attended workshops with Ansel Adams and others at the Friends of Photography in Carmel in my teens. In college I took a detour into botany and vegetation ecology. In my first career I worked on rare plant surveys, vegetation mapping, and habitat restoration plans at an environmental consulting firm in Sacramento, California.

After some years, I returned to more visually creative interests, becoming a graphic designer focused mainly on maps, technical/scientific information graphics, and visual simulations. This is my day-job today.

More than ever, though, I love to explore American landscapes, historic buildings, and other intriguing subjects with my camera. Thanks for visiting my collection!

Tim Messick hat das Bild Agave Parryi hochgeladen

The leaves of Agave parryi are protected by sharp spines along the edges and a fierce little dagger at the tip. The plant is heavily armed, but it is one of the most beautiful of the agaves. This one grows in the U.C. Berkeley Botanical Garden in California. Warm-toned monochrome digital photograph.
