Meet Tim Snopek
Wisconsin Home Grown
Born and raised in Waukesha, I have lived here all my life. A advid photographer and hunter reaching new audiences with the help of the internet every day. Saturday night chicken fries at home to picking out our favorite 7oz flavors of Roxo soda, brought by the case. Delivering the Waukesha Freeman on my paper route to selling pictures to the Freeman forty years later. With still some fuel left in my tank, enjoying the ride as long as I can.
My Short Bio
In the Beginning:
I grew up in the City of Waukesha, the seventh child out of eight. Have you ever seen the TV show Eight is Enough? Well, with our family, I would say eight was enough. It was a very loving family, oh but if I could write stories...
Living a block away from one of two fire stations in Waukesha. Every time I heard a siren, I was running out the front door to see what was driving by. When I finally got my drivers license, the chase was on. I worked for the local paper for twenty years in the circulation department, so I was always driving around town. The weird thing was, I was always running into car accidents or house fires. So I purchased a camera and started shooting pictures. It got real fun when I bought a police scanner, then I didn't miss a thing.
Where I'm going:
After twenty years at the local newspaper, it was time for a change. I still loved taking pictures, but I needed something different. The internet was just taking off and so was I. I'm currently a Federal Express driver that carries a camera. I work on the east side of Waukesha four days a week, working 11 hours per day.
That leaves me with three open days of photography.
What I'm doing is, telling a story through the lens of my camera. Capturing history! Stories that need to be told and remembered. I way to look back and reflect.
