About Tom

Tom here, nice to meet you. Everyone always writes these bios themselves, so I’ve endeavoured to cut out the regular self-inflating bit (you’re not trying to hire a deity after all) and tell you how it is, straight up and old school. Here’s the headline: My passion is photographing stills and motion of interesting people for the greatest brands and the best agencies and creative folk I meet. There, I said it.

I travel the world seeking out these people and situations and have found myself in some of the most challenging situations possibly imagined, from capturing portraits in war zones to photographing leaders of world politics in royal palaces. Creating personal connection with subjects is my main aim and to make sure they have a well-considered and personal experience as this can only lead to the best results. Ok so far?

Growing up I was always taking apart things to see how they worked or to fix them and that trait has stuck with me. These days I like to think I’m now a professional problem solver. I enjoy the new and varied challenges that photography brings, and over the years there are few situations I haven’t found myself in or problems my team and I haven’t been able to solve.

I take great pride in being super flexible (not so much physically, as I can’t do the splits any longer sadly) and me and my team 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 scamp to screen, on time and in budget, whilst making sure everyone involved in the project has a memorable experience.

If you would like to see more of my portfolio please get in touch and we can grab a coffee and chat about your project/ideas. Or how to do the splits. Whatever works.
