Tom during the Holi Festival in India
Tom lives in a coastal town in Dorset. His interest in photography started at the age of 8 or 9 and his parents bought him his first camera soon afterwards. As Toms interest grew he learned about about processing and printing from books in the public library and on acquiring a second hand enlarger, a developing tank and some dishes he blackout his bedroom by hanging all his clothes over the window and used a wall mounted infra red heater that glowed red as a makeshift safelight when printing. Surprisingly this rather dubious approach worked and the experience of seeing a print gradually appear was for Tom absolute magic. A long career in Public Service refocused Tom’s priorities and he spent many years working as an Educator. He maintained his passion for photography and now, having returned to that first love and traveling widely. Tom has written a number of guest blogs for Fujifilm UK and been part of the accredited photographer team at the Glastonbury Festival. He has had work published in the UK national papers and in calendars. Internationally his work has been published in books and magazines.
