Tim Vizer's Message: I am a veteran newspaper and freelance photojournalist accepting assignments for freelance work throughout the United States, and can transmit on deadline for sports or news publications or agencies.

I do freelance work in the St. Louis metropolitan area and the Midwest and I am the Chief Photographer at the Belleville (IL) News-Democrat, a daily newspaper near St. Louis, MO where I've worked since 1987.

I am a contributor to the Agencia EFE Wire Service in Madrid, primarily covering international soccer matches throughout the Midwest for them. Over my career I have covered virtually every major pro and college sports event, plus major national and regional news events through my newspaper and freelance work.

I was a staff photographer and later the Assistant Photo Director at the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, a photographer at the Evansville (IN) Sunday Courier & Press, and a staffer at the Collinsville (IL) Herald, before coming to the News-Democrat.

In the past few years I've covered the MLB All-Star Game and Home Run Derby at Busch Stadium in St. Louis for my newspaper and for the MCT wire service. I've covered the NCAA Women's Final Four, several NASCAR races, the NCAA National Wrestling Championship, the BMW Golf Championship, and the Missouri Valley Conference basketball tournament many times.

In 2008, I was hired by NCAA Photos to shoot the DII World Series baseball tournament for them and Baseball America.

My work has appeared in print for the past 40 years at the News-Democrat and my other previous newspapers, as well as in numerous news outlets globally via The Associated Press, Agencie QMI, and MCT (McClatchy-Tribune -- formerly KRT - Knight Ridder Tribune) photo wire services.

My freelance work has appeared in Sports Illustrated,, ESPN the magazine,, The Sporting News, and in many other publications and news outlets. I'v also done corporate work for Hyundai and New Balance.

I have also photographed the Super Bowl, multiple World Series games, Indy 500, NCAA Women's Final Four, Kentucky Derby, and other events in the NBA, NFL, NHL, MISL, PGA, and NASCAR; countless collegiate and high school athletic events, and many local, regional and national news events including Pope John Paul II's visit to St. Louis, as well as every American President since Jimmy Carter.

I am a member of SportsShooter and Nikon Professional Service.

I am a former member of the Associated Press Photo Managers, and was a recipient of a travel scholarship to the 2007 APPM National Convention held in Washington, D.C., where I was asked to be the APPM National Convention On-Site Chairman for that group's annual meeting in St. Louis in 2009.

I'm also a former faculty member of the Illinois Press Foundation's annual High School Journalism Workshop held at Eastern Illinois University, a former member of the American Society of Media Photographers, a former member of the Illinois Press Association's Technology Committee, a former Clip Contest Chairman (two annual terms) for the Indiana News Photographers Association, a former National Press Photographers Association member, former Illinois Press Photographer's Association member, and I've judged photo contests for both the Illinois Press Association and the Illinois College Press Association.
