Prolific Journalist And Photographer Timothy Payne Has Died


Journalist, author, teacher and photographer, Timothy Payne has died.

“Tim”, as he was fondly called, was from the community of Barnes Hill, the owner of the Reflexion Photo Studio and a former teacher at the St. Joseph’s Academy.

Payne is also the former editor at the now defunct Antigua Sun Newspaper and its Sun St. Kitts edition.

Many of his photographic work was captured in a Museum of Fine Arts which was mounted at the Multi-Purpose Cultural and Exhibition Centre at Perry Bay some years ago.

He was passionate about the Barnes Hill community and was the main driver in the restoration of a reservoir and the establishment of a community park in the area.

  1. So very sad to hear of the passing of yet another iconic son of the soil. Timothy you have, in your quiet, reflective way, stamped and left behind an indellible footprint. May you find eternal peace on your journey ahead.

  2. God bless Tim. RIP. Many men passing suddenly in the last few weeks. I hope the authorities are testing these men just to be sure.

  3. “And as it is APPOINTED unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” [Hebrews 9:27]
    My heartfelt condolences to his loved ones and colleagues. May you cherish the memories you made with him. Please take comfort in the promise of the Most High found in Revelation 21:4 “And God shall wipe away ALL tears from their eyes; and there shall be NO MORE death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”

    Sleep on ’til resurrection morning. Real cool chill fella.

    GOOD Human

  5. Tim also tried and started his own News Paper. I believe he had about three editions. I cannot remember the name. But when I spoke to him I told him Tim the news paper business is for persons with deep pockets. But he had hoped it would work some how, which it didn’t.
    But God Bless his soul. He was a good man. He loved his profession which really was not editor. He was a photographer and had a wealth of pictures over the many years about places and sceneries in Antigua. At one time he had an exhibition upstairs in the multi-purpose cultural center.

    Rest in peace my dear friend.

  6. Heard about him through my field of work. Another Caribbean photographer has gone to join the studio on the other side. Prayers for his family
