About Tom

Over a 40 year career span, Tom has been a UK based international portrait and fine art photographer recognised for his expertise in digital image capture and has accumulated multiple international awards throughout. With a global reputation as a published author, he has written several books in his own right and collaborated with other renowned authors. He also writes extensively for the photographic press at home and abroad including 'Rangefinder', 'Professional ImageMaker', 'Digital Photographer' and 'Focal Points'.

Tom’s current interests revolve about alternative processes rooted in the origins of photography, such as Wet Plate Ferrotypes, Ambrotypes, Platinum Palladium, Van Dyke Brown, Salt and Cyanotype printing. Photography only became widely used and popular with the public from the 1850’s and the images produced were truly unique. Artisans of the day worked at a much slower pace than today’s digital creatives and are a mix of the artist skill and alchemy.

Tom is also a respected educator having given numerous seminars and sat on several photographic judging panels internationally. Tom has recently completed photographic exhibitions in Malta and London, with invitations from galleries in Japan, Rome and America.

Whilst Tom no longer accepts commercial commissions, he is willing to collaborate with art directors, galleries, models, stylists and other professionals. His main focus is the exploration of photography in general (past and present) and exhibiting his work wherever he can. He aims to make available his accumulated knowledge at lectures and seminars.
