Tim Vizer's Message: I am an editorial and corporate freelance photographer in the Midwest. I am a contributing photographer to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and the Agence France-Presse (Paris), Deutsche Presse-Agentur (Berlin) and Associated Press wire services.

I cover the St. Louis metro area for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, shooting news, sports and feature assignments. I shoot international soccer matches throughout the Midwest for AFP and DPA and do editorial and corporate work for the Associated Press.

I have covered virtually every major pro and college sports event, plus many national and regional news events through my newspaper and freelance work.

I previously 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. I joined the Belleville (IL) News-Democrat in 1987 where I worked as chief photographer for 30 years.

Over my career I've covered the MLB All-Star Game and Home Run Derby in St. Louis for my newspaper and for the McClatchy-Tribune wire service, the NCAA Women's Final Four, 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 Division II World Series baseball tournament.

My work has appeared in numerous news outlets globally via The Associated Press, Agency QMI in Canada, Agencia EFE in Madrid, Agence France-Presse in Paris, Deutsche Presse-Agentur in Berlin, and the Knight Ridder-Tribune/McClatchy-Tribune 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've also done corporate work for United HealthCare, Hyundai, New Balance and Bridgestone Tires.

I have photographed the Super Bowl, multiple World Series games, the Indianapolis 500, NCAA Final Four, Kentucky Derby, NBA, NFL, NHL, MLS, MISL, PGA, and NASCAR events; 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.
