Originally from Warwickshire, Tom studied Art & Visual Culture in Bristol in the late 1990s, before becoming a graphic designer. In 2009, a chance purchase of an old Agfa half-frame camera from a charity shop reignited a passion for photography.
Tom's photographic work is influenced by his art education and his years working in graphic design. Predominantly based in urban landscapes, Tom's work often features bold geometrical and graphical compositions.
