My name is Tim King, I am 53yrs old and have been taking photos for over 40yrs, but more seriously since retiring 6yrs ago when I completed a photography diploma! I love walking, I love the peaks and I love a challenge! When we do the 3 peaks in August it will be my 13th time!! ( so I suppose I’m a bit mad too!! ?)
I have been asked to accompany ‘CabbiesDoKili’, as a photographer, on their quest to conquer the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro. I feel immensely privileged and proud to have been asked to take part in this once in a lifetime project.
The most important date in my yearly calendar is Remembrance Sunday. I habitually attend my local parade, to pay my respects and give my personal thanks to all those who served and those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. We should never forget! So, to help contribute to The Taxi Charity for Military Veterans is really important to me.
I have been taking photographs for over 40yrs, I hold a diploma in photography, but more importantly, have a wealth of experience in capturing varying situations. My passions are for landscape, wildlife and street photography, so I am really looking forward to the challenges of Tanzania. I am excited and very much looking forward to telling the CDK boys story through my pictures and video.
I have a huge love of the outdoors, I regularly hike in The Peak District National Park, I always embrace a challenge and have completed The North Yorkshire 3Peaks Challenge a total of 13 times!! A challenge that I will be accompanying the CDK boys on in August, as part of their training schedule.
From a personal point of view, I am also excited about undertaking this as I have just completed a period of rehabilitation after undergoing a total shoulder replacement. CDK has given me a goal to work towards and has undoubtedly helped considerably in my return to fitness.
I am extremely excited, feel very privileged, a little apprehensive, but very much looking forward to standing alongside this inspirational group of Cabbies on the summit of the highest free-standing mountain in the World.
