About
Traveling the earth, his work creates a long pursued “bridge” between painting and photography...

Thomas’s passion for photography started in the early seventies with the purchase of his first SLR, (a far cry from today’s sophisticated DSLR’s). Then, every adjustment to the camera was manual. He credits this to his methodical attention to details in his photos. Mentors also played a large part in the development of his skills, along with weekend trips to the countryside to enhance his skills and eye.

He moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in the late seventies. Here, he met three photographers that would help influence his photography. Two were Wedding and Portraiture Photographers and one, a Landscape Photographer. For awhile Thomas had a successful wedding and portraiture business. To relax he would head out with his camera and photograph the land and seascapes of Northern California. This is where he fell in love with the outdoors and landscape photography. One day while photographing the outdoors he was handed an 8 X 10 matt board with a 5 X 7 cutout and was told to look through it. As he says, “I started looking at our world in a different way”. The earth now became a canvas to his eyes.

From the mid nineties to the present, Thomas has been the Leica Camera Representative for Northern California, and recently has been appointed to the Leica North American Akademie as an instructor, for him, “his dream job”. He gets to work with some of the finest camera equipment, and leads photo workshops. His workshops not only have taken him throughout California and other parts of the U.S., but to other beautiful places on earth. Please Highlight the following link to see which San Francisco seminars and Destination workshops he is currently leading;

Most of the photographs you’ll see on his website are from his workshops. Some of the stateside locations have been; the Ghost town of Bodie California, Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur, Slot Canyons, the Eastern Sierra, Yosemite,and Monument Valley. Internationally he has lead workshops in; France, Germany, Galapagos Islands, and his favorite, Tuscany.

Stop by often, for he'll be adding more images, and information about up coming workshops and exhibits. Please visit www.flickr.com/photos/tom911r7 to view more photos of Thomas's.
