Thom’s journey into photography began in the mid-1980s. He put himself through a demanding self-imposed course of study to learn photographic skills and techniques. Years of dedication, practice, a high mechanical aptitude, and intense passion were the means in which he had available to achieve his goals. Furthermore, he took every opportunity to engage with established professional photographers. Subsequently, he gained invaluable knowledge and philosophical insight each time.
Inspired by Legends
He studied the works of legendary landscape photographers. The list including the likes of Galen Rowell, Eliott Porter, David Muench, and many others. Thom soon learned that scores of well-established landscape photographers, incidentally, were completely self-taught like himself. At the top of the heap was the iconic American artist Ansel Adams. This is something that Thom is very proud of. He attaining his skills the hard way, and did so bypassing the so-called system establishments.
The Concept of TS Photography Classes
Nowadays, Thom has developed his own photography classes and guided workshops. As he describes in his own words “My approach to teaching others is intuitive. I have a unique way of expressing all of my years of photography experience. I’ve combined that into creating my own fun and inspiring TS Photography classes. What took me years to master I’m able to simplify for others and teach you how all the elements of making a great photo are tied together.”
