WRITER, PRODUCER, DIRECTOR, DP, EDITOR, SHOWRUNNER
Tim Alexander is a passionate creative energy who started his career as a Top Fashion Photographer in Los Angeles 35 years ago. His early time spent in Paris, London, Milan, Berlin and Tokyo is where he learned his craft and forged a lot of his creative points of view that still continues to influence his work today.
In 2006 Tim became an Independent Filmmaker with a hard hitting, humorous, blunt force style through the high conflict situations he creates on screen. His first film was the break-out hard edged cult classic, ‘Diary of a Tired Black Man’.
It was a very successful first time independent film. TV & Film is now his passion.

His Professional Creative titles have included 35 years as a Fashion Photographer, Art Director, Web Designer, Graphic Designer, Photo Retoucher, Musician, Composer & Marketing Director. And though he's still an active Commercial Photographer, his new focus is now on Writing, Producing, Directing, Shooting & Editing TV & Film, making unique thought provoking documentaries, films and TV of strong social relevance with biting humor.
Tim has worked with a diverse range of talent through the years from world class Fashion Models to Entertainment Industry Icons such as Michael Jackson, Nelly, Master P, Lil’ Romeo, Kevin Hart, Katt Williams, Shemar Moore, Quincy Jones, Notorious BIG, Vanessa Williams, En Vogue, Mary Mary, Jimmy Jean Lewis, Monique & Cedric the Entertainer to name a few. And he is exceptionally good at working with new or raw talent bringing the best from them.
With a broad understanding of the business and his diverse creative skill set, combining his energies into a single company that focuses on both CREATING and PRODUCING TV & Film is a very natural fit for him. TAKA Productions serves his need to create without bounds, he has already been doing it all along, this is just the formalization of it.
