Born and raised in New Orleans, Timothy “Tim” Gendron has a passion for film and street photography and loves taking photos of the unique and vibrant city he calls home. Tim began studying photography, art and music at a young age. A cancer survivor, he first realized his passion for photography while he was in the hospital; he was given a camera by The Arts for Life –a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting people facing serious illnesses by providing educational art programs. It was then, at 14-years-old, that he also learned how to play guitar, which led to years of playing and touring with various bands around the United States.
Tim graduated from the University of New Orleans with a bachelor of arts in film and communications. He currently works as a production assistant in the film industry. Past projects include Logan (2017), Bad Moms (2016) and AMC’s Into the Badlands (2015). He has created films for St. Charles Parish (series of short documentaries about the parish), The Tres Doux Foundation (promo video about the launch of Beignet Fest to raise funds for autism programs for children) and UNO Film (short documentary about the New Americana Movement in New Orleans), among others. In his spare time, Tim travels and captures photos in cities all over the world. He is newly married and resides in the New Orleans Bywater with his wife of 6-months.
