Default Congratulations - Tim Sharkey & Sharkey Images!

Congratulations - Tim Sharkey & Sharkey Images!
From a hobbiest to a well respected professional!

Tim Sharkey has been a member of NJPPC for many years. Tim joined NJPPC to participate in our poker runs and other events but that eventually changed.

One day Tim showed up with an inexpensive "point & click" camera and began taking photos of our events for his own enjoyment. Soon after, when I saw the great shots I asked Tim if the club could have copies of his pics and maybe he could be the "club photographer?"

Soon, Tim's "point and click camera" became a nice high end digital with changeable lenses. Then his equipment grew to a very expensive camera, with HUGE LENSES and today Tim has thousands of dollars invested in cameras, lenses and equipment.

A few years ago I asked Tim if he had ever flown in a chopper? He said no and asked why? I told him that he was the following day and be prepared to snap a few 1,000 photos! He replied that he had never done it before! I responded....YOU WILL AS OF TOMORROW AND I HAVE ALL THE FAITH IN THE WORLD IN YOU AND YOUR ABILITY!

Well, this year I believe is the year that Tim Sharkey "has arrived" and the once novice photographer has grown to become one of the true professionals when it comes to shooting performance powerboats.

In the last 2 years, Tim has shot for not only NJPPC but his photos have appeared Poker Runs America, H2o, Performance Boats and as of this month, a color 2 page spread for Powerboat Magazine.

Congratulations Tim on your work appearing in all of the most recognized performance boating magazines and thank you for the awesome job that you do for NJPPC! Your time and effort and the results of your hours of work are greatly appreciated!

Best Regards,
Dave Patnaude
President
NJ Performance Powerboat Club

Congradulations Tim. I personally can say he takes the best pictures I have ever seen. He took a shot of my boat head on that was spectacular to say the least. If anyone deserves to be called a proffesional at what he does. "Tim Sharkey Is The Man"
