UPDATE: I've thoroughly enjoyed answering all your questions. I still can't believe how quickly time has just flown by... Now I fully understand how easy it is to unintentionally sit in front of Reddit for over 14 hours in one go. My eyes are square right now.
If you have stumbled across this thread in the distant future and you would like to ask me something, just click on my Facebook page HERE: http://www.facebook.com/timothy.allen ...and ask away. Lots of people ask questions that way and I normally get back to everyone in the end.
Good luck with all your photography projects.
Hello everyone. I am Timothy Allen and I am a travel photographer. By that, I mean that I am a photographer who travels for a living. I started my career at The Independent newspaper in London. My last project involved spending 2 years traveling with BBC film crews during the production of 'Human Planet'. I have spent a fair bit of the last 20 years on the road, visiting over 50 countries. Whenever I have the choice, I travel as a backpacker. I am 40 years old.
