As an artist, teacher, philosopher and photojournalist, Crane has been professionally involved with photography for thirty-seven years. His photography career began in 1978 as a photo-journalist for The Maryville Times. In 1988 he began teaching the craft of photography and still teaches workshops in a variety of locations to this day. He earned an MFA at the University of Delaware under John Weiss in 1990and in 1966 he took a job at the Waterford School (Sandy, Utah) and was tasked with building his own photography program.
After working solely with film and large format cameras he also enthusiastically embraced the digital world. Tillman has enjoyed the versatility of travelling more lightly and the ability to make ever bigger negatives for his prints.
Crane has also published four limited edition books, titled ‘Tillman Crane/Structur’ (2001), ‘Touchstones’ (2005), ‘Odin Stone’ (2008) and ‘A Walk Along the Jordan’ (2009) and his images are also included in several important books on contemporary photography. His photographs have been exhibited around the world and are included in major collections throughout the U.S, China, England, Ireland, Italy and Scotland.
