“Photography can tell a story, you just need to write the script.”

Thomas is a commercial photographer based just outside of Birmingham in the West Midlands. He is an approved Getty Images photographer, and is also a Peter Hurley Headshot Crew protégé.

Thomas believes that great photography should tell a story. In the fleeting moment you have someone’s attention, you need to make the most of that opportunity. Images need to speak for you, and convey your message.

His expertise includes not only product photography and headshots but also PR and food & drink.

When shooting he uses full frame Nikon camera bodies and high quality, fast aperture lenses for excellent results. His post-production work is carried out in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

It all started with a seagull.

Where did Thomas find his love for photography? Well, it was a pretty long time ago and started with a plan to get the perfect shot of a seagull...

"I remember being quite young, around 10 years old, and being given a disposable camera for a family holiday to Wales. An excited kid with a new toy, I couldn't wait to play with it; but with only 30 shots, I'd have to be careful!

I spent about 20 of them trying to capture a seagull as it flew overhead while I was sat on the beach. As you can imagine, quite a few photos didn't turn out as I planned them, but one did, a white seagull flying across a clear blue sky. When I got home and the photos had been developed I was so happy with the picture, and my love for photography was born.

Since then, I've been to university and gained two degrees and have had a successful career in professional services. My photography never went away though, so here I am now.

P.S. My mother still has that photo of the seagull!"
