Timothy Huyck: Powwow – Men’s Dance

There is tremendous movement and energy in American Indian dance. The men’s dances often tell the story of a battle or a hunt.

Timothy Scott Huyck was born in Inglewood, California and spent his early childhood there. A few years after the family moved to San Pedro, California, Huyck discovered photography in high school. He quickly made up his mind that he loved it. Shortly after graduation, his academic aspirations turned to Art Center College of Design which, at that time, was located in Los Angeles. But before he completed the admission requirements of the school, his life took a turn.

Huyck decided to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Argentina. At the end of that two-year stint, he was a different person and his priorities had shifted. Instead of pursuing a degree from Art Center, he enrolled in Brigham Young University. Career-wise, this may not have been the best choice, but it was here that he met the love of his life and began a family.​

Because of his growing household, Huyck turned his attention to means other than photography to provide a living. He spent the bulk of his adulthood working in the real estate industry in one capacity or another. At the age of 58, he enrolled in a 4-year law school program designed for working adults. He graduated at age 62, passed the California bar exam the following month, and began preparing for a career in estate planning. Not long thereafter, Huyck joined the Gartland Group in La Quinta, California where he practices estate planning and bankruptcy law.​

Tim had a long hiatus from photography, during which time he sold off his camera equipment. Still, he never gave up his desire to express himself photographically. While in law school, a friend gave him a digital camera. He occasionally took a break from his studies to become familiar with this electronic marvel. Over time, he found that digital photography was far more versatile than the film processes he had learned decades ago.​

Huyck has rediscovered photography as his means of expression. It is fondly hoped that you will enjoy viewing his work.
