“I distinctly remember watching the cinematic classic KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park at a young age, and wondering why on earth my dad preferred to spend his time in that stinky darkroom alone, when he could be hanging out with Gene, Paul, Ace, Peter and me!”
Many years later, Tom finally understands the allure of the darkroom.
Tom’s work has been featured in several publications including PhotoLife and Photo Art International. Although Tom is represented by the Graphistock agency, he continues to exhibit and promote his art independently.
Tom is active in the music scene and has recorded with close to a dozen artists including Kathleen Edwards and Jim Bryson. His trademark melancholic pedal steel playing echoes his photography.
“I love to hear how people interpret my images – it’s my favorite part of the process.”
