Calgary / Airdrie based writing, photography and videography.
Update: April, 2021.
Hey! Thanks for dropping in! Makes my day when peeps like yourself take a moment to pop over to my site. Well, some cool news on the vodcast front! As mentioned below and throughout this site, lowingmedia.com and all of the socials, I once wrote a weekly on Arts, Culture and People here in Airdrie. When I put that aside last summer, it wasn't long before I began pondering a way to do something similar that involved production. So, as simple as it is...here it is! A quick intro and a Zoom with people from all walks of life! The intention of The Lowdown vodcast is to showcase, once more, the people all around us. I have high hopes for this and can't wait to get talking with anyone and everyone. So, if you have a story to tell, and initiative to share, a business to introduce, then reach out and we can make a time to get it done!
Over the years things have really evolved here. Back in the day (circa 1999/00) it was all about my stand up and touring schedule on this URL.. From then to now, TONS has come to pass however, ultimately, it's been all about staying true (or at least trying :) ) to stay true to my creative side; for me, it's all about the art of expression. Who are we? Are we ebbing and flowing? Do we even recognize that we're capable? Are we growing? I hope so.
After running in the 2017 election here in Airdrie, I came to an opportunity that I'd long hoped for in years past; I was given the green light to contribute a weekly column to the local Airdrie Echo so for 125 weeks, I did just that. My life as a freelance writer took another step. That election resurrected a deep seeded desire to produce video and get back to my photography. I had always imagined I would go back to my "work" as I refer to it, after I was done raising my incredible son, Mason and retiring from my profession as a machinist. However, life had other ideas and in calm waters from that long dissipated wake of BML Productions, Lowing Media was born. I brought with me a life time of ideas, attempts, passes and fails and ultimately experience. Today, my little boutique media company is producing When We Can, Finding Laughter and of course, my online shop Darkroom Delights! I hope you take a minute to check out the links, follow, like and maybe even share and hopefully shop!
I believe strongly that life is about living your best you. I know, sounds cliché but it's true. As a machinist I've watched a lot of people give their lives to everything but themselves; retirement comes and life has other ideas. I didn't want that for myself and since the foundation of my adult life was forged in the story of Finding Laughter I learned early that living, means now. So, I'll keep this short, there's a lot to take in so please have a look around, click some links, ask some questions and be sure to follow my efforts across social media.
Thanks again for stopping by, it's great to see you again.
Lowing Media has grown with a rolling wave progression over two decades. Beginning in the late 1990's when Tim Lowing was a nationally touring Stand Up Comic he long dreamed of his own enterprise. By 2000 Tim envisioned the future of online video content and created webtube.tv and nettube.tv, believing that the future of the internet was video. At the time Tim became a self taught web designer, photographer and videographer. Writing was also a core passion and Tim became known for "always" having a pen in hand and note book in tow. By the End of 2002 Tim had written and created "Grow Op", shot and edited countless hours of video for the internet and performed thousands of hours for live audiences across the country. Today, Lowing Media Freelance Creations is the culmination of a life's work. Where experience and vision collide you will find Lowing Media.
