About Me - The Bearded Spider

About Me

Tim Burns, known as The Bearded Spider online, loves to find the minute detail of a subject and show the hidden beauty of the world.  Tim is a Macro Photographer who also streams some of his photo sessions live on Twitch.tv as a Twitch Affiliate.  

Tim, a lover of arachnids, believes that the the general fear of small insects and arachnids is fostered through a climate of not knowing what something might be and the dissemination of false information.  He hopes to help combat this atmosphere of fear and hatred by spreading facts and truth about these small creatures and showcasing their inherent beauty in his photography.

All photography on this site is available for purchase in a variety of forms.  Please contact for information on licensing photos for commercial use at tim@thebeardedspider.com.
