Tom has been taking photographs for as long as he can remember. One of his earliest memories is being totally captivated by the process of making photographs, watching his Dad ‘work black and white magic under a spell of red light’ in their home darkroom.
After graduating in photography and specialising in social documentary, his work now fuses these practices with his love of adventure and wild places. He enjoys telling stories with pictures, working with athletes, brands and publications to produce engaging and authentic imagery. Some of his most enjoyable assignments document amazing experiences in remote locations, often travelling by human power.
A growing family means he doesn’t spend quite as much time away from home as he used to, but the landscape and people of the Lake District provide constant inspiration and subject matter. His most recent project documents the legacy of mining within the Lakeland landscape, investigating a fascinating relationship of place, people and heritage.
His images and writing have been widely published, from cover shots for The Times and to illustrated articles for industry leading publications such as Sidetracked. This year his work has been shortlisted for Landscape Photographer of the Year, The International Photography Awards, The British Photography Awards and Red Bull Illume.
