After studying photography at the Saint Lucas Institute in Brussels from 1988 to 92, Tim spent a year at the FAMU Institute in Prague. During this time he produced his first photo projects in Romania and the former Yugoslavia before starting his career as a freelance photographer in 1994.

Yesterday's People, (Foto Museum Provincie Antwerpern) his photographic study of the changing face of rural society around the globe, was published in 2006 to coincide with a retrospective of his work at the Antwerp Photo Museum.
