About Tom

My name’s Tom, I love to take photographs and capture motion of amazing and interesting people for great brands and agencies. We all write these bio pieces ourselves so I’ve cut out the self-inflating guff, you’re not trying to hire a deity, I’ll just be honest here.

I’ve travelled the world meeting and photographing incredible people, finding myself in almost any situation you can imagine, from capturing portraits in war zones to photographing leaders of world politics in the royal palaces.

I am flexible, not so much physically, I can’t do the splits [anymore] but I have the knowledge and experience to execute your brief with the highest level of professionalism, quality, and attention to detail. I take great pride in bringing projects from paper to reality, on time and within budget, whilst making sure everyone involved in the project has a great experience.

Growing up I was always taking apart broken things to fix them, that drive has stuck with me and I like to think I’m now a professional problem solver taking portraits and shoots motion. I enjoy the challenges that photography brings and over the years there are few situations I haven’t found myself in or problems unsolved.

Throughout my career I have been fortunate enough to win multiple awards for my work and had my work exhibited in various galleries and exhibitions, please take a look over on the right-hand side of this page for a list.

If you would like to see more of my portfolio please get in touch and I can arrange a virtual meeting and get to know you a little. When the world has regained some normality maybe we can get a coffee.
