Tim Rawle is a photographer, graphic designer, publisher and author. He works for architects, publishers, academic institutions and individual corporate clients on a variety of projects, and is based in Cambridge and Oxford. His work for architects ranges from new-build through to historical and restoration projects, and for publishers he has worked widely covering all aspects of photography from the built environment to landscape/cityscape, people, still life and events. As a photographer his passions are architecture, landscape and people, and as a graphic designer his interests are in illustrated book design, typography and promotional material. He has designed and produced major publications for such organisations as The National Portrait Gallery and several leading international publishers.

Tim trained as an art student in London at St Martin’s School of Art and The Central School of Art & Design. He then went on to read architecture at Cambridge University (Downing College), followed by post-graduate study at the Architectural Association where he was Caldicott Scholar. After a few years he left architectural practice and has worked in publishing ever since, allowing him to combine his interests in architecture, book design and photography. He has had three books published on Cambridge: CAMBRIDGE Architecture (1985, Trefoil Books; 1993, Andre Deutsch) “This is an astonishingly comprehensive book… a unique and valuable record”, The Daily Telegraph; CAMBRIDGE (2005, Frances Lincoln) “The best introduction to Cambridge ever published”, CAM, The University Magazine; and most recently in 2012 Classic CAMBRIDGE: 100 Photographs by Tim Rawle, released as both a standard edition and a special University edition. An updated, second edition of his book CAMBRIDGE, featuring many new photographs, is due to be published soon. He has recently been commissioned by The Howard Foundation to write and produce a book on the architectural history of Downing College, Cambridge, due to be published in September 2015. Tim has also been working in Oxford for several years building a comprehensive archive in preparation for two major books on the ‘other place’ to be published in the near future.
