Everything Has Changed

Everything Has Changed by Tim LaytonEverything Has Changed by Tim Layton In case you didn't already know, I lost my youngest daughter Abigail in a car accident recently.  Her sudden and crushing loss has changed everything that I previous thought and knew.  

Prior to this tragic accident and loss with Abby, I was on a path to retirement from Tim Layton Fine Art and pursing some personal passion projects.  I didn't get too far into this chapter when this accident turned my world upside down. 

As I grieve and work through the loss of my daughter, I have realized that I am at my best helping others. 

Over the years I have made a lot of friends with analog photographers around the world and I always closed out the week feeling good about what I had accomplished and the people that I helped.  

I have received a lot of emails and notes from many of you in regards to losing Abby, and I want to say thank you again for your friendship, support, and encouragement.  I deeply appreciate it more than you probably know. 

You are welcome to connect with me on my personal Facebook account where I share behind the scenes updates with my friends and family that I don't share anywhere else.

As I move forward, I plan to be actively writing new helping articles, tutorials, and possibly even some new training workshops and guidebooks.  I want and need to stay busy and sharing my knowledge and experience with fellow photographers is a form of therapy for me.  By helping you, I am helping myself heal.

I purchased a new home a couple of months ago and I am in the process of buying a new small building and converting it into my new darkroom.  As I work through that process, I will share my design choices and everything about the build process in hopes that it may give you some ideas.
