About Us

"Tim Buisman has a way of making something simple look amazing"

This quote as well as similar ones are comments I often hear about my Rochester, NY photos. I want my photos to be creative so that they engage the audience. This can be done with lighting, the angle, the subject. I want the audience to pause and think about what they are seeing. To me photography is an art as well as a science depending on how you capture your images. 

A landscape photographer who does weddings

This description was somewhat recently pointed out to me, and it fits perfectly. What I enjoy most is taking images for fine art prints, but I will do the occasional wedding, portrait session, real estate, or business promotion. I will do these jobs with just as much enthusiasm, but it does change the way that I approach them. I am there to take genuinely good photos, and deliver to my customer what they have asked for. I am not set in my ways, I'm not going to tell you that you have to do it this way. 

New apprentice!

Tim Buisman Photography has a new apprentice! Marnie has come out from just doing the website and occasional edit to also assist with photo shoots and weddings. It's a good combination as the two of us have very different post styles with our photos. What does this mean for you? You can now select a "Platinum" package for your wedding that offers two photographers for your event.

Short Bio

A bit more about Tim

My passion for astronomy and the media are the two things that brought me to photography. I have a degree in visual communications and photography, and I am pursuing it as my career actively. For the moment I do also have a full time job in an unrelated field that prevents me from being available Monday- Friday unless an appointment is made. 


One thing I should make clear: I am not a sales person. I pursue photography because I love it, and I want to share it with people. If you would like to ask me any questions please do, and I will strive to give you a simple and honest answer. 


I have helped local businesses in Rochester, NY through professional photography services for their websites. I have worked events around the area ranging from MCC events to live band performances to Park Ave festivals. 


I am still gaining experience, but I also am pursuing a field where that will always be true. With technology changing there will always be room to learn and grow. 

A bit more about Marnie

Hi! I'm Marnie. I'm the person who has always been behind the scenes of Tim Buisman Photography doing the website, marketing, paperwork, and occasionally editing photos. 


I'm now stepping out from behind the computer to become an apprentice photographer. The thing that has brought me to photography is Tim. Watching him fill with love and passion every time he's working on his art is very inspiring. 


I have always pursued graphic and web design in my spare time, and enjoy working with Adobe Photoshop (I love the new monthly plans). My editing style is much less realistic than Tim's, and I try to have a bit more fun with it. If you select a package where I help or not chances are a few of my edits will sneak into the finished products. 


I also have a full time job which makes me unavailable Monday-Friday 8am-6pm. I'm working on building my portfolio, and would love to get in touch with local talent to increase my experience.
