Keith’s Bio:


Keith Tharp, Professional photographer working as Marketing director/ photography manager at a running sports event management company in New England. A lifelong photo enthusiast, I began Champion Photo, my sports photography business in 2005 which led me to my current position.

As a photographer I am kept interested in the craft by it’s abundance of challenges and learning opportunities. With photography I don’t believe that there will ever be a point where a person can know everything and become board with it.

It’s that idea of keeping the craft interesting that really compels me to explore iPhone photography. With the iPhone we now need to develop a new set of skills, tricks, and experiences to take the image creation to the next level.

I enjoy sharing and evolving with like minded individuals, this is where Tiny Shutter comes in. I started Tiny Shutter along with Marc Sadowski as a way to chat about iPhone photography and keep the creative juices churning. We asked Matt Hoffman to join us because he shared the same passion, and it’s not just about iPhones.

Living in New Hampshire, I have been published in several local publications as well as national magazines with two covers photos on BMX Today magazine (not in business anymore).
